Ryan Kwanten: Nature is His Gym

Ryan Trades Water for Alcohol

Ryan Kwanten on Cover of Men's Health Magazine

The November issue of Men’s Health magazine features Ryan Kwanten, our beloved blond haired ditz Jason Stackhouse from HBO’s True Blood, not only on the cover but in an article discussing his regime for keeping himself buff for all those scenes he does in different stages of undress.

While some people use energy drinks or water to hydrate for events, it is not unheard of for Ryan to use alcohol:

“I’ve been known to turn up drunk at triathlons and do very well.”

He tells the magazine that he doesn’t keep fit just for the series:

“I’m not one of those actors who gets physically fit for a role and then loses it all again. I’m very rarely in the gym. My workouts are predominately outside, in nature.”

That attitude is one that he applies not only to his body, but his career as well:

“I have that sporting background where I want to be the best. I want to be the champion. If I’m knocked down, you’re damn sure I’m getting back up again. A lot of actors who may very well be more talented than me don’t have that kind of tenacity in the face of rejection. That resilience gives me a distinct advantage.”

I am sure his legion of fans around the world will agree he is doing something right!
