Is Hollywood Juiced?
I have often watched TV or Movies and observed the latest action heroes and other actors (male and female) alike that have BUFFED up as they like to call it. Faces like Will Smith, Kurt Russell, Sly, Tom Cruise, and so on. The list could be unbelievable I am sure. How many of you think they are juice induced. My vote for the land of plastic and make believe is a resounding "YES" I am sure it's all legal too.

Yes and no. I would lean to say yes because I have observed some of these stars undergo complete body composition changes, not just building mass, from one movie to the next. However, I would say no because if they are preparing for a part in which they have to be muscular, that is their one and only occupation at that point. They have the very best trainers, nutritionalists, dieticians and the like on call, and unlike the rest of us, can be 100% focused on nothing else but achieving their desired physique. I'm sure many more of us would be at our peak physique if we had nothing else to do besides focus on eating/lifting/sleeping. Unfortunately that annoying thing called life comes into play with us.

I agree--these actors must be taking SOME sorts of anabolic substances....
Although he isn't exactly huge in Fight Club, I don't think Brad Pitt could achieve that level of fitness without some sort of chemical assistance. I could be wrong, though.

Your logic has some validity but I would more so believe that if they had an ideal physical condition then they would already be there or trying as most of us are. They have a job just like others, yes they can live more lavishly but does this make it harder perhaps? We all know how much dedication you can have for your job vs personal goals and desires. Albeit I have met many that lived for the job. Most of them the job kills them. Its about will, desire and determination to conquer ones own body, not for a role. Most of us strive for a way of life and making our best attempt at it. Most human beings do, no matter what their profession. I see them driven by different means for the quick goals. And we know most of us will take the easy way if we can, its the nature of the beast. I suppose its also just as obvious with the ones that do take care of themselves or at least try to live a fit lifestyle. Just wanting to point out the obvious with some. Drastic and sudden changes are easiest to recognize. I can remember when Sly and Brad Pitt were just scrawny fellas. They both have accomplished and maintained certain levels of fitness. Did they get a boost along the way perhaps? I darn sure know at my age it isn't as easy to gain or keep as you age. In that case I would vote YES again with both counts. Somewhere in their training they visited the grey areas is what I guess I am saying.

I think GH is probably real popular among actors/actresse. Most arent looking to get super huge, so I dont think many are using AAS. All of them pretty much just wanna get real toned and ripped, so I think that GH is probably the most popular. And of course, money is not object with them.
Plus alot of them have personal everything: chefs, trainers, etc.

Yeah, but I think you may have missed the point of my post. Their job IS to get big at that particular moment if the role calls for it. In some cases they have 3-6 months to do NOTHING BUT prepare to be in the best physical condition they possibly can. Can you imagine you much better your physique would be if you had that much time to do nothing else but train, all the while being aided by top-quality trainers, dieticians, and nutritionalists watching every rep, and every calorie you put into your body? I'm not saying they don't juice, but you have to take into account the added advantage of lifting/eating/resting being your only job at a given time.Originally Posted by Smoky

I would probably say yes to using supplements that have to be prescribed. Not necessarily AAS though.
05-16-2006, 04:53 PM
I def think Sly was on Deca, and other anabolics, while others were not, as I look at WIll SMith and as the Frsh Prince He always defined just not as big, he then enlisted an Nutritionist for ALI and BAM he was jacked. One thing I know is that they do not have life issues to intefere with their fitness roles as ACTING IS THEIR JOB. so if they need to take 6 weeks to be ready for a part guess who is training and is ready for the 20 mill part at the end of the 6 weeks.

I understand, just dont think it is the norm. I would imagine some of the elite actors may have that kind of schedule ability but not all. They also have to study lines and what ever else they do to prepare as well. Most of them live life to excess as well. So busy they are touring their homes/boats/cars/ blah blah blah. I will agree there probably are some that do it right. But my understanding of the human animal makes me say yes not good logic. For most folks to find something acceptable in their lifestyle is by mental justification. They have the means, the connections, and the money. Mix that with common human traits. Man has a history of corrupting and preverting everything. And condeming everything he doesn't understand or have sufficient knowledge of.Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier

OK here is an old one. Ricardo Montlebon (sp) in the Wrath of Kahn. Were those pec implants he was sporting or what? He was no spring chicken when it was filmed.

I remember years ago thinking that Brad Pitt was superjacked in Fight Club and that I would never achieve a physique like that. I still need to shed some bulking pudge, but I'm significantly bigger than him already.
BTW, he has no lats.

BTW, I do think there is probably a lot of AAS/GH in Hollywood. I hear Mullet's point, and the access to trainers, dieticians and personal chefs would definitely make it easier to get into sick shape, but I bet there is also some enhancement, which is not to say that most Hollywood physiques are not attainable naturally.
Plus, the camera makes them look bigger, so they are actually smaller than they appear.

I'm sure many of them use things like Clen and GH. AAS? Probably not as common. But there is definetely some obvious assumptions that people can make like when LL Cool J got super jacked and suddenly Nelly put on some weight. Things like that but otherwise, I doubt it. It's not that popular for actors to be big, most of them are skinny as hell, use lighting make them look better, and of course make-up. And just remember when people are lean people think, "HOLY CRAP HE IS HUGE" when there arms are the size of some of our forearms.

Well almost every actor in the longest yard was jacked to ****! LOL Bob Sapp, JESUS! lol. That huge guy from the Green Mile oh ya he was on something, i'd also say the Rock also. You also have to keep inmind that if you had the money to buy all the supplements you want and have a chef cook all your meals so even when dieting you don't feel like your on a diet, you'd make crazy progress too. I have read that GH use is on the rize among the stars but i couldn't say that for sure.

I envision lower dose cycles.
Something to help with recovery, and shift lean body comp in a short period. Would also make sense if they have to hold their condition, under less than ideal circumstances.
I also think it'd be more common when an actor gets hurt/injured during the prep for a movie - or they get behind on training/diet, and have to radically alter their physique with less than 6 weeks.

i'm sure plenty of them use gear .. its their livelihood .. and stallone has pretty much admitted to gear usage in the early-mid 80's ... big difference in his physique from Rocky (dope movie) to rocky IV (mis movie)

sometimes we forget that good gains can be obtained without pharms, in some people its obvious they are chem assisted, in others its just good genes and training
