I will say that every once in a while I get my back up when the first question is about my abdomen and not about the fact that Time magazine wrote that we might be the best superhero TV show ever. If the show was about my abs, then people would have watched the pilot, created a GIF on the internet, and not watched the second episode. So part of me wants to be, like, Fuck off. Hide

There are different motivations when it comes to going to the gym and the motivation of maintaining the physique you've established on television. And the fact that you are going to be showing it on television - if that's not enough to motivate people then I don't know what would. I'm working out really hard right now because I wasn't shirtless for the first few episodes of the season and then I am shirtless all the time for a long stretch. Hide
