Mark Ruffalo - Mark Ruffalo's Superhero Costume Problems
Mark Ruffalo admits he was not comfortable wearing the tight leotard he had to squeeze himself into in 'Marvel Avengers Assemble'.
The 'Kids Are All Right' actor plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the forthcoming Marvel movie - alongside Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Scarlett Johansson - and while he didn't mind losing weight for the role he was embarrassed wearing a small body suit.
He said: ''I did a cleanse that was like hell. I lost 21 pounds and I've kept about 15 off. I quite like it - it's good to be a little trimmer.
''I felt like such an asshole wearing The Hulk's little leotard thought. When they were designing it, I was like, 'How about adding a codpiece?', 'Some ass pads?' It's not very flattering.''
However, he is excited he is now playing the opposite to his usual nice guy roles.
He told Elle magazine: ''They say you always play the opposite of yourself the best, so I must be b*****d! I'm interested in the people you might write off immediately, but can then be surprised by. I get that a lot about myself.''
