Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is known for his muscles, but taking on the role of a demigod means taking his physique to a whole new level.
Johnson has been cast as the titular role in “Hercules: The Thracian Wars," and he's seriously bulking up for it. On Monday, the 41-year-old actor tweeted the 22-week diet he's following to play the son of Zeus, and it sounds insane.
Johnson revealed that he's eating seven full meals a day and consuming unbelievable amounts of food, including 14 egg whites and more than 3 pounds of meat.
Of course, it's not just about the diet. Johnson has been spending plenty of time at the gym.
Hercules seems like a role Johnson was born to play, and as grueling as the process is, he seems to really be enjoying it.
“Hercules" is scheduled to hit theaters July 25, 2014.
