Top 10 Action Movie Physiques


Check out our list of the most memorable muscles ever to grace the silver screen and be sure to let us know your film favorites!

8. Hugh Jackman – X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

By the time Jackman finished training for the role of Wolverine in the 2009 Marvel blockbuster, the 6’3”, forty-year-old Australian could boast a 315-pound bench press and a 1,000-pound personal best on the leg press. That’s an impressive feat for any age…bub!

7. Jason Statham – Transporter (2002)

Playing driver-for-hire Frank Martin in the Transporter franchise has helped to establish Jason Statham as one of this generation’s biggest action stars. He credits a solid martial arts background coupled with a rigorous training/nutritional regimen for helping him to achieve his now famously chiseled physique. It’s also allowed him to perform his own stunts!

    Three guys I believe had better bodies than almost all these guys you mentioned. 1) William Smith (CC & Comp), 2) Gordon Scott (Tarzan), 3) Clint Walker (Cheyenne).

    This list is tired and should have been retired 10 years ago. There is no way that Stallone looked better in R3 than he did in the last Rambo or even in the Expendables.In fact guys like Terry Crews and even Andrew Bryniarski have brought it numerous times and are left out. With the exception of Statham, this list could have been written in ’95

    We appreciate the suggestions guys. When we compiled the list, we also took into consideration the significance of the roles the actors played. Terry Crewes and Andrew Bryniarski are definitely in great shape but they really haven’t played an iconic type of character. That being said, Gordon Scott is a great suggestion and a role we’ll definitely consider if we do a follow up list. Thanks for reading!

    Wow. No Woody Strode? Mike Henry? Miles O’Keeffe? And for the record, Carl Weathers always had a better physique than Stallone.
