Actors are often depicted as being divas with all sorts of demands and requirements, but one clause actor Dave Bautista has written into his contracts is definitely one I can get behind.
That doesn't mean he doesn't know his worth, though, and Bautista isn't afraid of asking for what he wants before embarking on a new role.
The actor most recently appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but with a range of upcoming projects in the works, Bautista will need to stay fit and healthy.
To help him do this, Bautista follows a careful diet; one he doesn't want to be interrupted by work.
To ensure he stays on track while filming, Bautista has previously told Men's Health that he has a clause in his contract which states he 'has to eat no less than every four hours'.
I could do with one of those myself, to be honest.
Speaking to the publication in 2021, he explained: “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."
Bautista said he followed a mainly plant-based diet, but he did have fish a few times a week.
As well as monitoring his food, Bautista, unsurprisingly, also spends a lot of time in the gym.
The actor said at the time that he heads to the gym every single day - sometimes even cramming in two workout sessions - and in 2022 he credited bodybuilding with 'saving his life'.
"I was in a lot of trouble, getting in the worst kind of trouble and hanging out with the worst kinds of people. I just didn’t have anywhere to channel all my anger and aggression. And when I found a gym, it became therapeutic for me," he said.
"I loved wrestling, I really loved training. So I started training for years and then when I got out of high school, all I wanted to do was be a bodybuilder...
"I loved training so much that I turned it into professional wrestling... I started to take my body I had from bodybuilding and my athletic ability from wrestling, and turned that into a career, which led into film... That’s where it all started for me."
Bautista has come a long way since then, really showing what dedication - and eating every four hours - can do for you.
