In New Interview, Actor Richard Madden Opens Up About Body Image

Wednesday April 10, 2019

"Game of Thrones" actor and "Bodyguard" star Richard Madden is opening up about body image in a new interview with British Vogue.

Madden will also appear in the Elton John biopic "Rocketman" as the music icon's former manager and lover John Reid alongside Taron Egerton, who is portraying the singer. The two are said to have some nude sex scenes and the Golden Globe winner opened up about being nude on screen.

"We're projecting a very unrealistic body image," he told the magazine. "I find myself with actor friends — after we've done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes — looking at each other going: 'We're just feeding this same shit that we're against.'

"I've done numerous jobs where you're told to lose weight and get to the gym," Madden continued, adding that people have pinched his fat rolls and was given costumes so restrictive they feel like a corset. "It doesn't just happen to women, it happens to men all the time as well."

The actor recently made headlines after he was spotted hanging out with "13 Reasons Why" star Brandon Flynn, who is Sam Smith's ex-boyfriend. Rumors that the two are living together sparked relationship rumors.
