On raining like a superhero for Kick-Ass 2

“Throughout the movie he’s still got to be a weedy kid from high school so I couldn’t have anything too dramatic. It had to be a reveal at the end. We got around that by wearing a lot baggier clothes. I don’t think there was a particular shape; it was more like he ends up getting trained by Hit Girl and by the end of it he’s like...'if I’m going to be a superhero then I’d better start training like one.’”

On being a gym virgin:

“Only recently have I been introduced to the gym and heavy weightlifting and things like that. Before that, when I grew up I just did a lot of gymnastics and dance. I had more of an athletic background but nothing where I was in the gym or using any kind of weights.”
