Protein Shakes + Garlic Pasta Gave Mcavoy Smelly Problems
Actor James McAvoy was forced to give up the protein shakes he guzzled to help him bulk up for his role opposite Angelina Jolie in action film WANTED - because they gave him terrible gas.
The Scottish actor had been stocking up on muscle-building supplements in preparation for the movie, but his efforts left him with an unfortunate and rather smelly downside.
He says, "They really helped - but they do come with the unfortunate side effect of violent flatulence!
"I gave up taking them and just tried to eat as much steak and chicken as I could."
But MCAvoy's pong problems didn't stop there - he was paranoid about his breath for his kissing scene with one of the world's most beautiful women.
He tells WENN, "Contrary to all the rumours, I didn't ask for five more takes to get it right.
"I was more worried about the garlic pasta I had for lunch. I didn't want my breath to stink. I was a wreck. I wasn't there to enjoy the kiss."
