Men's Health (May 2014) sports Aaron Taylor-Johnson of Godzilla on its cover, promising to clue us in on how he built 15 pounds of muscle for the flick. I'll give you one guess how he really built it, and guess what? It isn't listed in the magazine.
I hadn't realized Taylor-Johnson had pulled a Patrick Dempsey, marrying a filmmaker twice his age (Samantha Taylor-Johnson), with whom he is raising four kids, including two from her previous marriage. Of this family situation, he says the idea he should be sowing oats at Hollywood parties instead of being challenged by fatherhood and marriage is wrong-headed:
“That's bullshit. They're not challenges. People are like, 'Don't you have to work really hard?' And I'm like, 'If you think it's hard, you must be in a shit marriage.'...It's the way I like my life. I like it nonstop.”
