The Jane to his Tarzan! Alexa Chung is finally opening up about her boyfriend, Alexander Skarsgard — well, sort of. The British model mocked how her hunk got in shape for his latest movie, The Legend of Tarzan, in an Instagram post Tuesday, July 5.
“Human. Nature. #tarzan I spent 6 months eating high protein meals 5 times a day and suffering through hefty regular workouts to prepare for this Instagram,” Chung, 32, captioned a post. “Unclear what the other guy did.”
In the pic, the actress stood in front of the movie’s posters, which showed a shirtless (and ripped!) Skarsgard, 39. Chung, meanwhile, scrunched her nose and tried to look as tough as possible.
Kidding aside, Skarsgard worked hard for his ripped body. Earlier this month, he told Mr. Porter’s The Journal that he ate 7,000 calories a day to beef up. He gained 25 pounds by eating “an insane” amount of food and worked out twice a day. Additionally, he stayed away from sugar, gluten, dairy, wheat and alcohol.
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed in May 2015 that Chung and the True Blood alum were dating. “It is serious and has really heated up,” a source told Us at the time. “It’s a fun relationship for both of them. She’s just about as busy as he is and it’s not really feasible [for them] to become a more committed couple, but the hangouts are great.”
Chung and Skarsgard have been going strong ever since. Chung previously romanced Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner from 2007 to 2011. The Swedish hunk dated Kate Bosworth from 2009 to 2011.
