'Kick-Ass 2' Star Aaron Taylor-Johnson Goes Shirtless For Men's Health U.K.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the 23-year old star of Kick-Ass 2, shows off what he keeps hidden under that green and yellow costume in the summer blockbuster franchise in the new issue of Men's Health U.K.

Aaron gives Men's Health an idea of his routine in the interview. “Only recently have I been introduced to the gym and heavy weightlifting and things like that. Before that, when I grew up I just did a lot of gymnastics and dance. I had more of an athletic background but nothing where I was in the gym or using any kind of weights.”

As far as training for Kick-Ass 2, however, things were a tad stricter. 

“The main thing we’d do is I’d wake up in the morning and go for a 20-30 minute run before I’d eaten anything, maybe do a bit of kettlebells for conditioning. Then I’d have a big f**king breakfast. Then we’d go and train later in the afternoon: a lot of big compound lifts like squats, deadlifts, bench press. Eating some of the protein shakes, just trying to eat a hell of a lot more.”

I know it's the wrong superhero flick franchise, but who doesn't totally want to sloppy Spiderman kiss him right now?
