Hollywood has produced a lot of good-looking actors. But not all of them have naturally aesthetic physiques. Some of them have built themselves up through a balanced diet, determination, and hard work. These stars spend months preparing for roles, sculpting six-pack abs, ditching any excess flab, and packing on muscle to transform themselves and make audiences believe they really are superheroes.
