Adrien Brody gave up sex for 'Predators'

The 'Pianist' actor shares the secret to his beefy frame in the film

How did The Pianist actor Adrien Brody turn into a beefy muscled man for his latest film, Predators?

Adrien says his transformation came after he prepared for his role by living in the jungle, exercising every day and giving up sex.

The Oscar winner, who plays buff Royce in the film, told a magazine, "I studied a lot of military manuals, paramilitary books and isolated myself in the jungle. I was training and dieting six days a week. Very heavy weights and high-rep circuit training was the key along with hundreds of push-ups a day. I was eating the right things obsessively."

But why give up sex? To which, Adrien adds, "Look at fighters and people who are training for something that requires that level of intensity. I was doing everything in my power to harness ferocity and I felt that I need to keep away from all the distractions and all the things that...err...drain you, if you know what I mean?"
