The actor loved the role, which is quite obvious because of the strict diet plan he followed during the shooting. But he once revealed that he has not watched the movies. He said,

“I didn’t see it. But I believe that the film did pretty well, apparently, and they wanted to keep going, making more and I was fine to do that. It’s not like you become that person, but if you know that character to the degree that I did – because he was not what the writers wrote, so they really weren’t able to write for him. Once you know the character better than the writers, that’s when you have to be true to the character and add your words.”

Just like Johnny Depp, many celebrities go through unbelievable transformations for their roles. Vin Diesel is known to get into shape for any of his Fast & Furious franchise, while Christian Bale’s skeletal physique for The Machinist was quite impressive.
