Jason Statham is one of the biggest action stars in the world, and he is serious about his fitness — which is abundantly clear if you’ve ever scrolled through his Instagram feed.
At first glance, Statham’s social media presence isn’t much different than that of other stars. He’s got a mix of posts promoting his projects, shots of his wife — actress and model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley — and pics documenting the perks of a Hollywood lifestyle, like super-fast luxury cars.
But there’s one distinct feature of Statham’s account you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The British brawler is a master martial artist and former world-class diver, and there’s a continuing series of photos that show off his athletic exploits. That’s not rare in itself — Statham’s Fast & Furious costar, The Rock, uses his Instagram as a glorified workout diary — but what is unique is how Statham’s workout posts are framed. There’s typically no caption to give any indication about what he’s doing or why the picture is worth posting, and the photos are almost always filtered black and white. He tends to be shirtless, the lens focusing on his ripped torso. He posts seemingly at random, dropping three pics in one day sometimes, then going silent for months.
To top off the ambiguous, dramatic posts, Statham’s account currently doesn’t follow any other pages. He’s clearly not on the platform to take part in the social media fitness community, or any type of community, for that matter. He’s there to show all of his 16.7 million followers that he’s more than willing to take his shirt off, strike a pose, and kick some serious ass for his own purposes.
Check out what Statham does for yourself to see how he still stays on top of the fitness game.
