Though, the new bod doesn’t come without effort. The 25-year-old
actor explains that he gave up alcohol in order to portray a triathlete in the
new film, Me Before You, co-starring
Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games series).
“I spoke to the director and I said it’d be nice
to get into the mindset of someone like that, because he’s not drinking
alcohol, he’s just eating salads all the time, and I was very interested to
know where you go to in your mind to have that level of commitment,” Lewis says.
“So I sort of gave up alcohol -- I say sort of, I have given up alcohol.”

He also reveals that his diet has taken a hit.
“I’m off sugar and I can’t really eat carbs. I really wanted
to see if I could stick to such a strict regime, and to really understand what
it’s like to have a goal like that and really 110 percent go for it,” Lewis
says. “I mean I’ve always been a bit of a sports enthusiast anyway, I love the
gym and all that stuff, but I can’t wait for a pint of lager, I tell you that!
The pizza and beer will definitely be making a comeback over the summer.”
