Michael B. Jordan gained "20 pounds of muscle" for Black Panther

WSJ:

“Everything,” Jordan says. “Chest, shoulders, back. My legs a little bit, my quads. I was just, like, massive.”

This dedication is a celebrated part of Jordan’s origin story. For Creed, he shredded himself into a fighting machine with an enviable eight-pack set of abdominals. For Black Panther, Jordan was right back at it with the weights and monastic eating restrictions.

“It’s a job, man,” he says, clearly enjoying our midday carb feast, which is not his norm. “You really have to diet. It’s hard to be social. You have to drink a gallon and a half of water. When you’re drinking a gallon and a half of water a day, you know how many times you have to use the bathroom? It’s annoying.”
