He plays motorcycle gang boss Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy, but in real life, Charlie Hunnam is anything but a bad boy.
“My favorite days are at home,” he told ET. “Spend some time in the garden, cook a couple of nice meals, watch a couple of movies. I’m pretty boring.”
But there’s nothing boring about his sexy shirtless spread for the December issue of Men’s Health magazine. The British actor channeled his inner cowboy for the swoon-worthy shots.
To get ripped for photoshoots and his many shirtless fight scenes on Sons, Hunnam told ET that his favorite workouts are “old school stuff.”
“I’ve been going to the gym and doing 75 dips, 75 pull-ups, 150 push-ups, 150 squats, and 20 minutes of abs,” he revealed. “After my abs, I do the back extensions.”
Sons of Anarchy wrapped production last week, and the season finale airs Dec. 9, but Hunnam’s not taking any breaks. He’s inked a major campaign with Calvin Klein, signed on to play King Arthur in a Guy Ritchie-helmed franchise that could span six movies, and is even creating his own projects.
“There’s some small independent stuff, and then I have two films I’m developing as a producer,” he told ET. “They’re kind of really exciting to be exploring a little bit behind the camera, to try to keep working and doing work that I’m proud of.”
In this exclusive clip from an extra feature on the Sons of Anarchy season 6 Blu-ray, out Aug. 26, Hunnam recounts the sadness he felt in losing Siff, with whom he says he shared “the greatest collaboration I’ve ever had with another actor.”
“I really enjoyed working with her,” he says in the video above, “and I think out of all the things we’ve achieved on Sons of Anarchy, the relationship with Jax and Tara is the thing that I find plays the most real and deep and rich and has been the thing I’ve been most proud of.”
The season premiere of Sons of Anarchy’s final season, airing Sept. 9, will pick up 10 days after the bloody final and show Jax in jail on a parole violation and dealing with the loss of his wife.
The show’s super-sized premiere airs Tuesday, Sept. 9.
