Kumail Nanjiani Got Amazingly Ripped for Marvel’s Eternals: ENDNOTES

Kumail Nanjiani ripped for Eternals

Kumail Nanjiani, the talented comedian, writer and actor who you’ve possibly seen in HBO’s Silicon Valley or the film The Big Sick, is still a talented comedian, writer and actor — but he now also has muscles. And people have taken note, largely because it’s hard to miss when someone posts shirtless photos of their veiny, muscled body on Instagram.

While debuting his new build on social media, Nanjiani admitted that he “never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless” photo, but he made an exception because “I’ve worked way too hard for way too long.”

Nanjiani said he worked with multiple trainers to achieve his new look after deciding he wanted to transform himself ahead of taking a role in Marvel’s Eternals.

I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise I’ll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!)

His co-star Simu Liu isn’t half-bad to ogle either!


Jason Derulo has been making headlines lately for what he’s… err… packing below deck. He’s also busy promoting Cats and shared that he thinks the special effects department may have had their work cut out for them.

During a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy with Andy Cohen, the 30-year-old musician revealed that he thinks his package was CGI’d out of the film entirely.

“They did CGI. I noticed that,” he tells Cohen. “You think they airbrushed your penis out of Cats?” Cohen asks.

“One-hundred and twenty-five percent,” Derulo insists. “I could see it in the trailer.” [ET Online]
