Jude Law needed to bulk up for his role in the new film Dom Hemingway, which meant finding a way to put on about 30 pounds in a very short amount of time. After production wrapped, of course, he had to get slim again, so how did he do it? The answer isn’t all that shocking.
“I was banned from exercise and just encouraged to eat all the wrong stuff,” Law told PEOPLE at the film’s premiere in New York City on Thursday night, hosted by The Cinema Society & Links of London. “I ate a lot of red meat, a lot of steaks and burgers, and ice cream.”
His go-to flavor for the latter?
“Cookies ‘n cream…but I’ll be happy if I never see another tub of it again in my life,” he says.
“I’m not a big gorger, so it was the Coca-Cola that got me,” dishes the British actor. “I was drinking five to ten a day, and I just got kind of sick of it.”
Unsurprisingly then, when the film wrapped and it came time to shed the pounds, Law couldn’t have been more ready.
“I was really happy to be able to go for a run!” he says.
So let’s all take a note from Jude. If you ever want to pile on 30 lbs in a short amount of time, just eat everything in sight that looks delicious. That oughta do it!
