While us ordinary people are mesmerized by their well-groomed physiques, several stars among them also enter this fitness grove when their co-stars are what people call fitness freaks.

It’s something similar to what Tom Holland went through as he prepared for his then-upcoming role as Nathan Drake in Unexplored, he had to build muscle quickly, and her co-star was none other than Mark Wahlberg.

Tom Holland had to compete with Mark Wahlberg!

While filming for the in-game adaptation of his film Unexplored, Tom Holland was ready to star alongside Transformers actor Mark Wahlberg. When Holland hit the set for day one, he got a bit of a rude awakening. According to him, when he saw Wahlberg’s super-toned and well-built physique, he felt like he was suddenly competing with him to see who is crazier than the other, which is, of course, something Holland personally felt.

So, like any other capable person, Tom Holland started his month-long muscle-building journey to get in shape for the role. During his days as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in the Marvel Studios films, he had to be all about that speed and agility, looking like a lean swimmer or endurance athlete. But for his role as Nathan Drake, he was meant to look like a globe-trotting, grave-robbing, adventure-seeking man built like a combat-experienced mountaineer.

Tom Holland reveals that getting big for his role all boiled down to one thing which is eating heartily and healthy, while training with relentless intensity to achieve those gains. As we’ve seen in the past, Holland isn’t shy about working his best for a role with his transformation to play Spider-Man and his extremely excruciating weight loss in his movie. Cherry.
