Well after a lot of build up, the live action adaptation of the hit Disney movie Beauty and the Beast is almost her and we have to admit that we cannot wait to see the film. While former Harry Potter star Emma Watson has been making most of the headlines, we have been amazed what Dan Stevens had to do for the movie.
Dan Stevens plays the role of the Beast in Beauty and the Beast and it seems that the actor had to put his body through quite a lot for the role. Dan has now revealed exactly what it took to keep his body in the best shape possible for the role, and it sounds like it was a lot harder than people might realise.
Stevens was chatting to the British Radio Times magazine, when he explained to them, "It was a pretty athletic job for me. I was physically conditioning my legs to be on stilts for 12 hours a day and also conditioning the rest of me so that I didn’t waste away – I was losing so much fluid from sweating."
He then went on to add, "I would overheat, especially when we were dancing, so between takes there was a little tube that could be plugged in to ice-cold water to cool me down... I was honestly eating four roast dinners every day, just to keep any form of physicality."
Beauty and the Beast is set to hit the big screen in both the US and the UK on March 17 and are sure it is going to be a huge hit.
