Between making public appearances on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and on the track at Circuit de Monaco during the F1 Grand Prix, James Marsden took time to cool off amid the heat in the South of France over the weekend.
The former Westworld star showed off his athletic build and buff, defined chest on Saturday, June 3 while taking a dip in the sea just off Antibes, where fellow actor Orlando Bloom flaunted his abs just one week earlier.
Unlike other leading men, Marsden tends to "shy away from bodybuilding-style workouts" in his routine, according to celebrity trainer Adam Nicklas, N.A.S.M. While prepping his body for his role in Westworld, his training focused instead on bodyweight exercises that enabled him to build strength and stability without putting undue pressure on his joints.
Marsden has recently appeared in the Disney sequel Disenchanted and the Netflix drama Dead to Me,and gained critical acclaim for his appearance in the 2023 mockumentary series Jury Duty, in which he portrayed a heightened, fictionalized version of himself, with his celebrity persona dialled up to 11.
However, he is still probably best known for playing Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, in Fox's universe of X-Men movies opposite Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and Patrick Stewart. He is currently rumored to be reprising the role of the laser-blasting mutant in the upcoming superhero sequel Deadpool 3, which will help to bridge the gap between the Fox and MCU continuities.
