In 2013, when Man of Steel hit the screens, fans instantly fell in love with Superman all over again. Especially when the actor appeared without a shirt in the film, fans started drooling over him. Well, there is a reason for it. It is that the Enola Holmes actor was the only actor who had the rare 8 packs among all the actors who portrayed the powerful character.

Man of Steel, directed by the visionary director, Zack Snyder, is one of the most impressive adaptations of a DC character. To portray the character with the utmost accuracy, the English actor had to train a lot. When he was training for the role, there were even rumors about his body fat dropping to only 3%. However, when he appeared on The Rich Eisen Show, the 39-year-old debunked the rumor and denied it, too.
