Brad Pitt and Mikhail Efremov are the same age. What's the secret of the Hollywood superstar?
Recently, Internet users were struck by a selection of photographs, the authors of which compared Russian and Hollywood actors. One of the comparisons was dedicated to Mikhail Efremov and Brad Pitt. Moreover, it was not their awards for work in the film industry or the number of roles filmed that were compared, but their age. Surprisingly, Mikhail turned out to be older than his Western colleague by ... 1 month and 8 days - which cannot be said by their appearance.
Indeed, Brad Pitt will turn 56 this December. He not only does not stop acting in the highest-grossing films, but he also does it, showing the audience a still embossed body. Over a long career, the actor has really done a great job on his lifestyle and bad habits. Let's talk about what allows Brad Pitt to stay in great shape, regardless of age.
Refusal of bad habits
I must admit, the Hollywood star could not always boast of a negative or even neutral attitude towards cigarettes and alcohol. But unlike his peer, he thought about giving up one of the bad habits - craving for nicotine - even before playing in the film Troy, which was released in 2004. During the filming period, smoking prevented Pitt from gaining the muscle mass necessary for the role of Achilles, so he had to quit for a while. However, Brad finally gave up cigarettes not so long ago. By marrying Angelina Jolie in 2014, he got rid of the habit to avoid setting a bad example for their future children.
Unfortunately, Brad's fight with alcohol dragged on much longer. The actor himself admitted that he did not know when to stop and drank too much even during his family life. Only after breaking up with his wife did Pitt seriously think about addiction. The actor attended Alcoholics Anonymous classes for a year and a half and eventually quit drinking.
Extreme and rock-n- roll!
It's no secret that Hollywood star Brad Pitt is far from being indifferent to sports and extreme sports.
Diverse training in the gym
Of course , giving up bad habits makes us much healthier, but it is necessary to work on a relief body purposefully. In an interview before the September premiere of To the Stars, Brad said that he regularly spends in the gym four days a week and does not give himself indulgences. After all, by nature, the actor is prone to thinness.
For the first time to work on his own body, Pitt began in 1991, before filming the film Thelma and Louise. The naturally thin guy needed to gain muscle mass and work out the abs. But after the release of the picture in the rental of TransfoThe feeds are not over.

In 1998 year began filming Fight Club - the film that brought Brad incredible popularity. It features a scene in which his character, Tyler Durden, bares his torso before fighting an alter ego. The actor at that time remained quite thin, but his body gained relief and mobility. Later, Pitt shared with the public a specially designed training plan. It consisted of four days of strength training for a specific muscle group and two days of cardio training each week.
Brad Pitt's strength training included exercises :

Proper nutrition and diet for roles
Now Brad Pitt is trying to adhere to proper nutrition: he does not abuse fast food, snacks, sweet and other high-calorie refined foods. He does this during the working week and gives himself indulgences on weekends. Nevertheless, for the sake of roles in films, Pitt changed his diet more than once and went on strict diets.
