After he began working twice a week in the pool, James said work “flocked” to him at age 78. Josh, on the other hand, got into Marvel superhero shape while filming “Deadpool 2.”

Jaden and Will Smith have both talked about hitting the gym.

Jaden Smith spoke about his strict workout regime for his film “After Earth” and the fact that he gained 20 pounds of muscle. He’s also spoken about his routine of drinking a gallon of water per day.

His dad, Will Smith, is no stranger to beefing up for roles either. He’s talked about getting an “eight-pack” for his film “Suicide Squad” and getting fit for “I, Robot.”

Dennis and Jack Quaid both keep it simple in the gym.

Dennis lifts weights and does sit-ups on top of cycling and doing yoga. His actor son, Jack, claims he isn’t fancy when it comes to fitness, telling “The New Potato” “I try to alternate days at the gym where I push things with days where I pull things.”

Colin Hanks apparently works out on shoots and dad Tom Hanks has been on a healthy path.

Tom Hanks started working out more when he got a type 2 diabetes diagnosis, according to his wife, actress Rita Wilson. She said that the pair now loves to hike and walk together and that they are enjoying a healthier lifestyle.

His son, actor Colin Hanks also hasn’t spoken out about his routine himself, but his “Fargo” co-star Allison Tolman said she, Hanks and their other cast-mates often shared the hotel gym together when they were shooting.
