Mena Massoud has been confirmed as the star of the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s Aladdin and luckily for us, he has shared lots of hot shirtless photos on Instagram over the past year!
The newcomer put himself through a fitness challenge last year and the main photo here is from his starting point. Click through the pics in the gallery to see his progress.
“My 4 month transformation post. Not as lean as I’d like to be, but gaining muscle mass & cutting fat at the same time ain’t easy,” Mena wrote on Instagram after his four month challenge was completed in November 2016.
“2016 has been an incredible year so far. I’ve already experienced the biggest changes in my life over the course of the past 10 months. It’s almost as if, life has taken me by the hand and led me to a plethora of places that I never really thought I would go,” Mena added. “I’ve realized, more than ever, that there are a lot of things in life you cannot control. More things than you think. In fact, there are very few things in life, far and few between, that are fully and absolutely in your control. But it’s those things that you can and do control that end up having the greatest reward on your life. Never set goals and stop when you achieve those goals. That is the biggest disservice you can do to yourself. Because goals – goals are just the beginning of a legacy. Live. Dream. Love. Grow.”
