Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been an absolutely MASSIVE success and made overnight movie stars out of newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega!
While the long-awaited sequel was shrouded in secrecy during its filming — especially since it was a J.J. Abrams film — it wasn’t always the easiest for the actors to keep quite about their involvement.
In an interview with OK! magazine, Ridley dished on how she got ripped for her role as Rey in the film, and how her changing body actually made it harder to keep her involvement a secret!
The 23-year-old explained:
“Yes (I trained) for three months, five hours a day. It’s weird when you can’t tell people what (film) you’re doing and they’re, like, ‘Why are you so muscly?’ And I’m, like, ‘I’m at the gym, by myself.'”
That gym time paid off!
Anyone who’s seen the film knows gurl’s calves were out of this world!
See, kids, nothing magic about it! You just have to burn those
