Yowza! Matt Damon hit the gym his role in Elysium!
In order to play him, the actor had to beef up. “We wanted him to look a certain way so I had to keep up a workout regimen,” says Damon. This was made even more necessary by the addition of the “hulk-suit,” an technologically advanced exoskeleton that makes Damon’s character stronger and faster.
While the rig is meant to enhance Max’s physical capabilities, in real life, it meant Damon had to work out even more.
