Welsh movie hunk Ioan Gruffudd has demanded his character in new movie THE Fantastic Four has fake muscles - because he can't be bothered to work out for real ones.

The KING ARTHUR star has landed the role playing beefy hunk MR FANTASTIC in the upcoming movie version of the comic-book hit.

But Gruffudd is reluctant to spend time in the gym.

He says, "I have to wear an all-in-one blue spandex costume but I want them to add fake muscles.

"There are better things to do than work out at the gym."
