Here’s what he had to say:
For Conrad Stonebanks in The Expendables 3 (due out next summer), Gibson has even sculpted himself into shape, working with a trainer and modifying his diet over three months before trying to annihilate Sylvester Stallone and his crew.
“I just want Sly to look good. And he’s not going to look good if he’s beating up a fat old man,” says Gibson. “I have been working really hard at it. A lot of cardio and very light weight training, nothing heavy.”
Gibson looks so cut that after he was photographed leaving a Malibu gym, online pundits insisted he couldn’t have achieved the look without steroids.
“That’s just hard work, dude,” Gibson insists. When asked about steroids he laughs: “Have you seen the side-effects of some of that crap? Forget it, that’s too scary.”
According to USA Today, Gibson said he had been working out extensively for three months prior to being captured by the photographer. He works with a personal trainer three times a week for three-hour sessions working every muscle group. This along with careful diet and natural supplements has given him the look, he said.
I really am counting the seconds until this movie and I have a good feeling about it; I just hope it lives up to expectations.
