In a new interview, Richard Madden speaks out about his hot TV show “Bodyguard” projecting “a very unrealistic body image” with its revealing scenes.
The actor discusses on-screen nudity with British Vogue, insisting: “I find myself with actor friends – after we’ve done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes – looking at each other going: ‘We’re just feeding this same s**t that we’re against.'”
He adds, “I’ve done numerous jobs where you’re told to lose weight and get to the gym.”
Madden also reveals how he’s had his fat rolls pinched and been “given costumes so restrictive they feel like a corset.”
He continues, “It doesn’t just happen to women, it happens to men all the time as well.”
Madden then talks about playing second fiddle to a female James Bond when an actress or actor is finally chosen to replace Daniel Craig.
He shares, “If it was a good part. If it was an interesting part, a Bond Boy would be an interesting dynamic. Why not?”
