Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, September 1, the actor showed off his transformation in an attempt to raise awareness about prostate cancer.
“September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Today I’m launching the #NicTailorNoPants campaign in partnership with @prostatecancerfoundation sponsored by Nic Tailor Underwear to get men talking about their prostate health,” he captioned a shot that showed him in his underwear. “To ALL the guys out there, here is the mission: To help spread awareness, please post a selfie in your underwear or bathing suit and tag three other men to do the same using #NicTailorNoPants and tagging @prostatecancerfoundation. Have fun with it and make it your own. Post your pantless Zoom attire, or your summer swimsuit, or risky business it with a button down and tighty whities. I know it’s a vulnerable ask… but it’s a vulnerable conversation and we need to get it started.”
He continued, “Ladies… encourage your men to do it. And to get screened. Your post and bringing awareness could save lives. Prostate cancer is silent and affects more than 14 million men worldwide. My own father caught it early and survived. Please take control of your health. Get yearly checkups. Catch it early. And let’s help support the Prostate Cancer Foundation and help end prostate cancer.”
While speaking to Us Weekly about his decision to get in shape, the 46-year-old explained, “Overall wellness has become increasingly more of a focus for me — especially given the pandemic. I chose to meditate more, make better eating choices and work out harder. I became more invested in my health.”
As fans know, his announcement came just a few weeks after he reunited with his former Twilight costar Nikki Reed. They teamed up for an Instagram Live, and seeing them together was truly a dream come true.
