While Hugh Jackman Dehydrates Himself for Days for Wolverine, Jason Momoa Just Drinks Guinness Beer To Look Like the Hulk

Aquaman actor Jason Momoa is right up there with other actors who have received heart-eyes from the audience for their incredible physique. These actors work hard day and night and maintain a strict diet plan to achieve their goals for the role. Actor Hugh Jackman even admitted to not drinking anything at all for 36 hours before he was to appear shirtless on camera.

Every actor has their own path to follow when it comes to training. However, Jason Momoa has quite a unique approach to fitness. Apparently, amidst the strict diet he followed, Jason Momoa made space for his favorite beverage to be incorporated into his diet, daily. Not coffee, not a glass of soda, his drink of choice was the Guinness beer. Jason Momoa just had to have it in his diet plan.

Jason Momoa’s Love for Guinness Beer

While rock climbing, paddle boarding, hitting the weights, and following a tough diet are all part of Jason Momoa’s training, he seems to incorporate his love for the Guinness beer into even the strictest of his diets. During a conversation with WSVN-TV’s Chris Van Vliet, he opened up about how exactly he manages to do so. When asked about the secret behind getting an Aquaman-like body, Momoa shared his experience.

I really love beer. I will not eat a carb all day long, and it’s probably not the healthiest thing. But you gotta remember I’m like away from my wife, away from my kids, I’m eating no carbs, I’m on some crazy diet, I have to work out in between busting my a** and doing stunts. The dog needs a bone, and the bone is some Guinness at the end of the day.”

Momoa added that while he loves going to work, the monotony of it can be tedious and all he looks forward to is having a couple of pints with friends after the shoot as he calls himself a “social butterfly.” While he himself condones the act, he stated that his body is just used to it.

The Frontier actor shared a hilarious story where while filming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, his body just wouldn’t show up for a scene. That is until he downed Guinness beer.

I go to my trainer at the time, ‘Give me a Guinness. Give me a Guinness’ so right before we did the underwater thing I cracked two Guinness, pounded them. And my whole body’s like you can see my veins, I’m like the Hulk.”

Momoa’s approach is surely something that’s never been seen before. Well, to each their own, right? With that level of fitness, no one seems to be complaining.

While Guinness was a part of his Aquaman diet, it was the only cheat he allowed himself. The actor cut out all carbs and junk food from his diet and focused on building mass and turning that mass into muscle. Momoa followed trainer Stuart Walton’s belief when it came to his diet. Walton valued nutrition, balance, and enjoyment in his diet plans, which is why he didn’t force anything new on the actor. Instead, he curated a plan which included healthy foods that Momoa was already used to and enjoyed.

So, if you’re planning to achieve the Aquaman body by just downing beer after beer, it probably isn’t a good idea. Leave the unusual diet for Guinness connoisseur, Momoa.
