Aaron Taylor-Johnson is totally ripped in these behind-the-scenes images from ‘Kick-Ass 2.’ Lovingly screencapped by the Aaron Johnson Source Gallery from a special backstage feature on the movie’s Blu-ray, the pics show Aaron shirtless on set and doing chin-ups. I should probably feel bad for munching on bon-bons and drinking wine while ogling these photos of the spectacularly fit actor, but somehow it all just works together. You go ahead and enjoy them anyway you want, too:

19 Kick-Ass Photos of Aaron Johnson
Men’s Health UK
Aaron Taylor-Johnson poses shirtless and upside down for the September 2013 issue of Men’s Health UK. In a feature accompanying the photo, the 23-year-old talked his intense training regimen for his physical role in “Kick-Ass 2,” which hits theaters Friday.
He tells the magazine, “The main thing we’d do is I’d wake up in the morning and go for a 20-30 minute run before I’d eaten anything, maybe do a bit of kettlebells for conditioning. Then I’d have a big f**king breakfast. Then we’d go and train later in the afternoon: a lot of big compound lifts like squats, deadlifts, bench press. Eating some of the protein shakes, just trying to eat a hell of a lot more.”
It sure looks like the workouts worked, Aaron. We miss his days of curly hair and devilish facial hair, but abs? All kinds of yes! While we’re flipping for the sexy new picture, we still wanted to see what the upside-down image looked like, well, upside down! It’s kinda weird, tbh. Check it out below:
So it took a while for me to realize that the handsome blond fellow in the just-released poster for “Anna Karenina” was not, in fact, Jude Law with a massive hairpiece. (It is, much to my surprise, Aaron Johnson, whose hotness somehow transcends the hair.) Can you find Jude? I mean, that old ugly guy on the left can’t be the sexy Jude, can it? … Oh, dear God, what have they done?!?!
Jude doesn’t look half as bad in motion in the trailer for the period romance:
“Anna Karenina,” which is set for a Nov. 9 release, was written by the great Tom Stoppard — so I’m totally in!
