A photo of Grant Gustin in his new Flash outfit was recently leaked and the internet did not make it cheap, consuming the actor with negative comments about his thin body and the star countered the criticisms on his social media:
“So, here’s a little something about this leaky photo leak. It’s a cool costume. This is a terrible photo I didn’t know was being taken, much less being posted. Some things need work and will be worked on. We will “Get there. Except where it gets to my body. That’s what irritates me. Not even because of me. For more than 20 years I have had to listen to children and adults telling me or my parents that I’m too thin. I I had my own acceptance journey. But there’s a double standard where it’s okay to talk shit about a guy’s body. “
Grant Gustin also mentions that maintaining or gaining weight has always been a big challenge for him and that, due to his physique, he was very surprised and happy when the CW suggested that he play Barry Allen.
“I am happy with my body and who I am, and other children who are like me or thinner than I should be able to feel the same way. Not only that, but they should be able to feel as if they could be a superhero on TV or in the movies, or whatever it is someday. “, says the actor.
Among other important points to take into account, the high speed of Flash consumes a lot of energy, which makes Grant Gustin’s thin body not a problem, considering the high metabolism of his character. The angle of the images is also not favorable and the actor himself says that this will not be the vision seen in the series.
The fifth season of The Flash will enter the CW programming on October 9, at 8 pm, but the show’s star has already told us that it will be the best season of the show so far.
