The Actual Reason J.K. Simmons Is Getting So Fit

A couple of weeks ago, photos started to circulate of J.K. Simmons engaging in a rather hearty looking workout with a personal trainer. So besides thoughts of how Peter Parker and that kid from Whiplash were going to have to watch their asses, our main hypothesis was that this regimen was intended to bolster Simmons' appearance for his role in Justice League. Well, as it appears, we were wrong. In fact, the only reason J.K. Simmons is getting built is simply for himself, in an effort to remain healthy.

The truth came out in a recent interview between J.K. Simmons and Business Insider, as the former Spider-Man actor addressed those rumors rather deftly. Simmons' explanation for this newer, buffer look is as simple as the following:

This is all coincidental. After the second and final time that I got hugely fat in my life and when I lost that weight six or seven years ago, I pretty much decided that I was going to stay in decent shape for the rest of my life.

This "last time" that J.K. Simmons got fat was around 2009, which lead to his transformation that most would have first seen in the 2014 Academy Award nominated film, Whiplash. Since then, Simmons has been in the best shape of his life, and hasn't let himself go since. In fact, the main reason he stepped his gym time up was because he met current trainer, and amateur gym photographer, Aaron Williamson, while he was filming Terminator Genisys. So now, not only is Simmons healthier than he's ever been, but the last Terminator film has officially given the world something positive to think about.
