Russell Crowe took his bike for a spin in Beverly Hills on Friday, and the Oscar winner is getting his body back for his new role in Man of Steel, where he plays Superman's biological father Jor-El.
"I'm doing a series of movies and they all require a skinnier version of me this time around unfortunately," Russell recently told The Daily Telegraph. "I think McDonald's have had a drop in their share price since I've been working out."
Russell has also taken to Twitter to give fans the scoop on his diet and exercise regimen, and yesterday he tweeted, "70 mins mix of trad weights and body movement with weighted objects, 20 km bike, now for a swim, sun is shining". Whew! That's a lot of lifting and cycling!
P.S. We're so glad to see a celebrity setting a good example when it comes to safety on the street -- not every star sports a helmet when we spot them on a bike!
