He plays motorcycle gang boss Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy, but in real life, Charlie Hunnam is anything but a bad boy.
“My favorite days are at home,” he told ET. “Spend some time in the garden, cook a couple of nice meals, watch a couple of movies. I’m pretty boring.”
But there’s nothing boring about his sexy shirtless spread for the December issue of Men’s Health magazine. The British actor channeled his inner cowboy for the swoon-worthy shots.
To get ripped for photoshoots and his many shirtless fight scenes on Sons, Hunnam told ET that his favorite workouts are “old school stuff.”
“I’ve been going to the gym and doing 75 dips, 75 pull-ups, 150 push-ups, 150 squats, and 20 minutes of abs,” he revealed. “After my abs, I do the back extensions.”
Sons of Anarchy wrapped production last week, and the season finale airs Dec. 9, but Hunnam’s not taking any breaks. He’s inked a major campaign with Calvin Klein, signed on to play King Arthur in a Guy Ritchie-helmed franchise that could span six movies, and is even creating his own projects.
“There’s some small independent stuff, and then I have two films I’m developing as a producer,” he told ET. “They’re kind of really exciting to be exploring a little bit behind the camera, to try to keep working and doing work that I’m proud of.”
I’ve added HD captures from the newest episode of Sons of Anarchy into the gallery.
Charlie is featured on the latest issue of Men’s Health UK for the month of December. In his feature he discusses the stresses of staying fit for roles, while also maintaining his off-beat work out schedule. You can view the scans in our gallery now.
Variety.com — “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam is attached to head-line in true-life Thai kick-boxing prison thriller “A Prayer Before Dawn” with Jean-Stephane Sauvaire (“Johnny Mad Dog”) on board to direct.
HanWay Films will launch worldwide sales at AFM, where “Prayer” will aim to satisfy the buyer’s appetite for commercial crossover genre fare in the vein of “Drive” and “The Raid.”
Sauvaire has started casting former prisoners who were Muay Thai champions in Thailand, where shooting will start in summer 2015. Hunnam is already in training for the Muay Thai sequences.
The film will be produced by ex-Wild Bunch exec Rita Dagher’s new company Senorita Films and Hurricane Films duo Sol Papadopoulos and Roy Boulter, who previously optioned the material. The screenplay is by Nick Saltrese, based on the book by Billy Moore.
Pic tells the true-life story of Billy Moore’s incarceration in one of Thailand’s most barbaric prisons — Klong Prem, the notorious Bangkok Hilton. In a system where life has no value, Moore discovers the deadly martial art of Muay Thai Boxing, and begins fighting for his freedom in the ring. It is the story of a man’s descent into hell and his journey back to redemption.
Sauvaire said: “‘A Prayer Before Dawn’ is — at one and the same time — a true story, a prison drama, a survival movie, a desperate love story, and an extraordinary tale of redemption. Above all, it is a poignant and uniquely human story.”
Thorsten Schumacher, managing director of HanWay Films, added: “’A Prayer Before Dawn’ combines the visceral thrill of Thai boxing with a human story of a fight for survival in prison hell. The fact that Charlie and Jean-Stephane have already started living and breathing this film is proof of the incredible energy and sheer force the collaboration between these two will bring to the screen.”
On the big screen, Charlie most recently starred in Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak,” alongside Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska. This is his second time working with Del Toro as he previously starred in “Pacific Rim” in 2013 for Legendary/WB. In the first quarter of 2015, Hunnam will star as King Arthur in Guy Ritchie’s epic Warner Brothers’ “Knight of the Round Table” film.
