Russell credits his work as Jim Street in the CBS crime action drama SWAT to helping maintain his figure.
“The physical side of what we do is very taxing,” he told the magazine.
“You’ll never see a plateau with so many massages going on, because we’re all trying to keep everything loose.”

The Chronicle star also explained that she was the target of bullies while attending school in Queensland.
“I was an easy target because I was very sensitive so you could get a reaction from me, which is just gold for a bully,” the actor reflected.
Alex also revealed that some of his tormentors went out of their way to apologize to him when he visited his parents based in Rockhampton.

“Someone will come up to me and say, ‘Hey man, I’m so sorry about this. I said, “No, man. No worries.” Because it’s not them; [School is] an environment and it’s tough.
Russell first rose to prominence as the star of the 2010 Australian independent film, Wasted On The Young.
He has since appeared in films such as Unbroken, The Host, and the Carrie remake in 2013.
