Nicolas Cage Reveals Funny Reason Why Ghost Rider Made Him Stop Wanting To Work Out As Hard

When it comes to starring in a superhero film, there’s one thing actors are surely aware of when signing on – they’re going to have to get in serious shape. It’s just something that’s pretty much a given with such a project, and this was something Nicolas Cage was conscious of when signing on for Ghost Rider years ago. The Oscar-winning actor was successful in building an impressive physique, too. However, it seems the Marvel Comics adaptation has now dissuaded him from wanting to work out so hard, and there’s a funny reason for it. 

Something that made Nic Cage’s role in Ghost Rider unique from many other actors’ work within the superhero genre is that his hero look was largely created with visual effects. This was crucial in order to create the flaming skull head the Spirit of Vengeance is known for having. Viewers were more than aware that CGI was used for the character in that respect. But as Cage recently explained in an interview with GQ, moviegoers apparently thought special effects were used to alter his abs as well, leading him to forsake those long hours in the gym:

They are real, and that’s why I’ll never work out that hard again. Because nobody wanted to believe they were real and they wanted to believe it was CGI, which it wasn’t so what’s the point?
