Since their bodies are exposed for a lot of the sex scenes, the pair made sure to get into peak physical condition.

The actor told Men’s Health:

I combat the winter blow-out by skiing as often as possible. I work really hard at it – the beauty of it is that you feel like you’ve earned your pint at the end of the day! Like rugby, too, I feel I deserve to reward my exertions.

Johnson enjoyed her workouts, and was even photographed leaving the gym with Masterson.

She told EW:

Obviously, I want to look good naked. I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f—ing feels awesome.
