It seems that Jonathan Majors’s performance in “Magazine Dreams” is the talk of the Sundance Film Festival. The actor completely transformed into his role as a poisonous bodybuilding obsessive, and his performance shocked the residents of Park City. The camera spends extended periods of time focusing on Majors’s ripped muscles, giving him the appearance of a massive monster throughout the picture. The actor said in an interview at Sundance’s Variety Studio hosted by Audible that he ate more than 6,000 calories a day for four months to get into character.

Jonathan Majors Weight Gain
“I’m 6 feet tall. I’m 202 pounds,” Majors said. “In order to sustain that and to grow that you have to eat as much protein as you weigh. I ate 6,100 calories a day for about four months. That included the pre-work and the post-work of ‘Creed III.’”
Majors elaborated, saying, “The typical bodybuilder trains twice a day.” In character, I say, “I’m Killian Maddox…” You can’t mess around when playing him. My actual routine throughout filming consisted of two hours of training twice a day and an additional hour once production wrapped. And you eat six times a day, right? Chicken galore. A large number of elk. My personal use only. Personally, I find it appealing.
“I played football in Texas. I got an appetite,” Majors said. “I really like being physical. I like hiking and running. I’ve got dogs. I’m only 33… I got to do something to stay with it. I don’t work out three times a day anymore. Just once a day.”
Are Majors happy to take it easy on the workouts now that he’s jacked for “Creed III” and “Magazine Dreams”? He will reduce his workload, but he won’t stop moving forward entirely.
Variety film critic Owen Gleiberman praised Lee Majors for his role in “Magazine Dreams,” saying, “Majors looks and sounds like the gigantic cousin of Dennis Haysbert, and his inner silent pensive quality is transfixing.” What an amazing show!
Jonathan Majors Said: It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life
“Magazine Dreams” depicts a bodybuilder whose workout fixation affects his health as he pursues stardom. The film’s star, Majors, told Deadline, “The bodybuilding, transforming the body, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
“You are pacing up and down your apartment, force-feeding yourself the food you need to grow,” he said of training and meal days. Isolation and physical commitment produce emotionality and distance.” “That weight is no longer 310 or whatever,” he said of his bench press emotional breakthrough. No more. “Abandonment, my stuff, dad’s difficulties, insecurities.”
