Kutcher quit gym to make 'No Strings Attached' character seem more 'real'

February 22, 2011 - Washington

Ashton Kutcher deliberately quit gym before filming nude scenes with co-star Natalie Portman for romantic comedy 'No Strings Attached'.

He apparently wanted his character to seem more 'real'.

The 33-year-old actor warned director Ivan Reitman that he would let himself go to make his character writer, Adam, seem more real, reports Contactmusic.

He explained: "I actually stopped working out for this movie. I literally had a conversation with Ivan before I started and I said, 'This guy is a production assistant, aspiring writer.I know a lot of these guys and none of them are particularly fit.' "

And I just felt like that was necessary for this character.

"I thought making sure that this character was real was really important."
