Hollywood actor and professional bodybuilder Martyn Ford said he wouldn’t endorse a pan masala advertisement like the one done by James Bond star Pierce Brosnan.
“Personally, I wouldn’t promote these (Pan Masala) types of products. I would only promote life-saving or health-related products,” Ford told PTI here.
“I don’t smoke and drink and it will be weird to be an ambassador for such products and companies,” he added.
Brosnan had received a lot of flak and was even trolled on Twitter for featuring in advertisement of a pan masala brand.
In response, Brosnan had expressed his distress over Pan Bahar’s “unauthorized and deceptive” use of his image to endorse their range of pan masala products.
Asked whether he would advise or discuss about the controversy with Brosnan, with whom he is doing a film Final Score, Ford said, “I don’t know whether Pierce is going to listen to my advice.”
Ford is in the city to promote bodybuilding in India and take it to international level. He is attending Fitfactor, a competition for body builders, which is being organised by United Kingdom’s Bodypower in association with WTF, Bengaluru.
Ford has also acted in Undisputed 4. Asked which Bollywood actor is best suited to play James Bond, Ford said John Abraham.
“I believe there are many Bollywood stars who are eligible, but to me, John Abraham has that kind of looks, the talk and body - I mean someone of that calibre. I definitely see, Abraham doing that type of role,” he said.
Before being a bodybuilder, Ford wanted to be a professional cricketer, but could not fulfil his dreams due to an injury, and chose bodybuilding as his profession.

On impact of cricket on his professional life, Ford said the sport laid foundation for his success in life as it ingrained the values of discipline.

Ford said, of the three professions, he feels more comfortable attending training sessions in his gym.
Adding Mass In order to grow muscle many try to hard, in a sense that they train, train and train some more. All you are doing is eating into your recovery time. Personally I find the best way to gain muscle is to keep at 4 sessions per wk, lasting 45 - 60 minutes long. But the key is to make each second count! You should be crawling out of the gym. Give 100% in every exercise, blast and destroy, rest and recover. Train smart and train clever, this type of approach is great for hard gainers. Stick to 5-7 total exercises and 7-10 rep range, use a spotter for forced reps and each set after your warm up is 100% effort. Stick to compound movements as your bread and butter. Be sure to load up on food an hour before the session. During training take on some - carbohydrates and mox in bcaa plus createin (liquid form) -and post training take carbs and protein mixed with Gluatamine, bcaa and creatine for optimal gains #training #gains #tips #muscle #mass #martynford
“I enjoy training the most. The environment which I find myself more comfortable is the gym in my house. That is the safe place for me, but facing camera is stressful, but I enjoy the challenge,” he added.
