Conan The BarbarianRipped action man Jason Momoa had to give up his love for beer as he prepared to revamp Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Conan The Barbarian" character to get into shape.
The actor admits he loves to unwind with a six-pack but he had to switch to whiskey while he was getting into shape for the new blockbuster.
He says, "I'm a big fan of alcohol... I'm a big beer fan; I drink Guinness. But, during Conan, it was scotch, because beer makes you bigger... and a couple of beers to help get the dirt and blood off."
And his Conan diet left a lot to be desired: "I had to eat boiled chicken breast every two hours. It's like wet cardboard."
