Dave Bautista has revealed a rather unusual clause he insists on in all his movie contracts.
The WWE star turned actor recently impressed viewers with his performance as Duke Cody in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and recently revealed he was hoping to land more serious acting roles in the future. You can see Bautista in action in the Glass Onion trailer here:
During a recent interview with Men’s Health, Bautista mentioned a rather unusual clause in his contract when it comes to filling his stomach.
Speaking to the publication about his diet and exercise regime - which I’m going to guess is pretty full on - Bautista said: “It’s actually in my contract that I have to eat no less than every four hours.”
I must look at getting a similar clause added to mine.
When he’s not chowing down every four hours or under, Bautista tops himself with some of his favorite snacks.
He added: “In between those meals if I get hungry, I typically do an almond butter and banana, or a vegan, gluten-free grilled cheese is my favorite go-to.”
The actor follows a mainly plant-based diet, but does include fish a few times a week, and hopes to go fully vegan one day.
Alongside his healthy, plant-filled diet, Bautista spends a lot of time in the gym.
He told Men’s Health he heads to the gym every single day - sometimes even cramming in two workout sessions.
“This is my sanctuary. I come here for peace of mind. It’s therapeutic for me,” he said.
Bautista’s impressive physique helped land him his breakout role as Drax in Marvel’s The Guardians of the Galaxy back in 2014.
After almost a decade in the role, Bautista is exiting the Marvel Cinematic Universe later this year as Drax bows out in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 3.
And it seems as though he’ll be happy to do - during an interview with GQ earlier this month, he said: “I’m so grateful for Drax. I love him. But there’s a relief [that it’s over]. It wasn’t all pleasant. It was hard playing that role. The makeup process was beating me down.
“And I just don’t know if I want Drax to be my legacy - it’s a silly performance, and I want to do more dramatic stuff.”
He went on to tell GQ he didn’t ‘give a f**k’ about being a big movie star or ‘living a glamorous life’ but that he’d love to become a ‘better actor’ and earn the respect of his peers.
