Outlander star Sam Heughan makes exercise look good. The 38-year-old actor flaunted his muscles in an Instagram selfie this past week during a workout with Game of Thrones actor Tom Hopper, and fans couldn’t get enough of Heughan in his tank top.
“Budapest! Jet-lagged and getting after it with my boy @tom.hopperhops,” Heughan captioned the pic, in which Hopper wore a black t-shirt. “What a beast. #SecretProject #ThatHURT.”
Hopper posted the same pic on Instagram and wrote “About time me and my boy @samheughan got after it! #firstofmany.”
In the caption, Hopper also added an invite to actor Owain Yeoman for a future workout session, and Yeoman commented that he was still putting work in on the bench while Hopper and Heughan were taking selfies.
Heughan’s role as Jamie Fraser on the popular Starz time-traveling drama has required him to focus on his hair and body. He told People Magazine in 2017 that he is a natural blonde, and it is “pretty horrific” because he gets it dyed every three weeks for the role. Heughan says it’s “hard being a ginger,” but he thinks everyone has a little bit of ginger in them, adding he has some in his beard.
In the past, Heughan has shared his fantasy of giving up his workout routine completely. He once told Vulture that he had been thinking about “getting really fat,” and he thought eating a lot and not working out would be really good. Then he questioned if people really wanted to see that.
Heughan has admitted that his ideal date would feature a little exercise because he imagines it being outdoors. He said that it would start with some possible kayaking and mountain climbing before the sun goes down. Then, he and his date could wake up to the sunrise at the top of the mountain with a bottle of whiskey. Heughan added that there is a certain type of person who wants to do that.
Heughan recently won the Sexiest Celebrity of 2018 in a poll of Just Jared readers. With two rounds and over 30 celebrities contending for the title, Heughan came out on top in a landslide victory where he received 230,779 votes.
Twilight star Robert Pattinson came in second, while Justice League’s Henry Cavill took third, Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki took fourth, and Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan came in fifth.
