Guy Pearce Was A Teenage Bodybuilder

“I won the junior state championship when I was about 16. I just found the whole world of bodybuilding really fascinating. The idea of actually changing yourself was fascinating, and then as I got older I concentrated on developing my mind and spirit rather than my biceps. I was always looking at my biceps wishing they were bigger. I was never quite the proud bodybuilder that I think some guys are.”

—Guy Pearce fesses up that when he was a teenager, he was super into weight lifting. Even though his thigh muscles aren’t the size of my waist now, I’ll still be into seeing his nakey scenes with Kate Winslet in “Mildred Pierce.” I just like the fact that in an alternate world, he’s Arnold Schwarzenneger.
