When it comes to saving the world, the hero must look like a hero in the film. Actor Matt Damon knows all too well what the preparation for a film like that entails. For his role in the new film “Elysium,” Damon says he went on a very strict diet and worked out like a mad man. Matt Damon also remained humble about getting ripped. He said, “I just changed the texture of the beef.” (Um, pause, anyone?)

In “Elysium,” Matt Damon plays an ex-con who must fight to save a barren Earth from dying out altogether. The film also examines political and sociological issues such as class, wealth, immigration, and health care. You be sure to check out the science-fiction thriller when it hits theaters on August 9th.
