"I am an observer. I am an only child, so I spent a lot of time just watching people. And now as an adult I watch and observe. When you get to work with people like Ian McKellen or directors like Peter Jackson, you sit and watch. That's how I learned to be a film actor."

Joseph Gordon-Leavitt covers Men's Health (October 2013). In the story, I learned his grandfather directed Pillow Talk with Doris Day and Rock Hudson, and was blacklisted during the McCarthy Era. Not surprising, considering how creative and edgy this guy is himself.
The thoughtful star says of his life:
"I wrestle with [anxiety, heartache, career-in-transition-stuff, relationship-in-transition stuff] all the time. My life has become a series of questions. Why am I doing the work I'm doing? Why am I friends with with person? Am I living the best life I possibly can? Questions are often looked upon as doubt, but I don't see it that way at all. I question things to stay present, to make sure I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. So I just keep asking."

Colin Kaepernick is an example of physical perfection in Men's Health (October 2013). One more after the jump...
Tom Brady as he appears on and in Men's Health (September 2013).
Joe Manganiello appears on the cover of Men's Health (July 2013) to plug the new season of True Blood and to remind the magazine's quietly bisexual readers that he is still the hottest man alive.
Manganiello recalls a "superhero moment" that happened to him before he'd struck it famous:
"A friend of mine and I were moving a refrigerator, and it fell down the stairs. I caught it—in the air—and put it down."
Is there any more erotic image than that of Joe Manganiello holding a fridge?
Joe Manganiello looks to be in even better shape than that he already was in the July 2013 issue of Men's Health UK.
Uberhandsome Chris Pine covers Men's Health (June 2013). Inside, he says of criticism:
"You either listen to the naysayers and fall into the pit of self-loathing, or you stay on the path and move forward."
Good advice not only for professional actors, but for those everyday amateurs pretending to be someone they're not.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from Game of Thrones is a brooding babe on Men's Health (May 2013). Inside, where he gets shirtless, he relates the story of how he almost became a star over 10 years ago:
"I flew to Los Angeles to read for the lead in Vertical Limit," a mountain-claimbing action movie. When he arrived, the studio picked him up in a fancy car, teased his hair into a Lethal Weapon-style mullet, and made him sign an inch-thick contract with numbers he couldn't believe—all before he even read for the role. And then he tanked the audition."
He learned the lesson of not counting chickens that trip, but his seem to be hatching quite nicely now with Game of Thrones.
