Jonathan Majors towers over most people with his impressive height of 6 feet (183 cm). His stature has served him well in his acting career, especially when portraying formidable characters.

“As a 6 ft. black man, there’s no real reason for me to be afraid of walking around. Biologically, you’d have a hard time dealing with me. But I have an innate fear in me, walking the streets. It’s not just about the police—it’s about what any white person might do because they have fear in them as well,” Majors commented on how his height impacts his experience as a Black man.

His words highlight the realities of racism that Black Americans face daily.

He added, “Fear recognizes fear. But it’s life or death, you know who experiences that fear every day? Me. My friends. My brothers and sisters, it’s not playing fair.”

An Introduction to Jonathan Majors

Jonathan Michael Majors is an American actor known for his work in films and television. Born on September 7, 1989, in Dallas, Texas, Majors had his breakthrough role in the 2019 indie film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco.” He gained further acclaim in 2020 starring in the HBO series “Lovecraft Country,” for which he received an Emmy nomination.

Other notable credits include playing Jesse L. Brown in the war movie “Devotion” and outlaw Nat Love in the Western “The Harder They Fall” (2021). In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Majors portrays various iterations of the character Kang the Conqueror, first appearing in 2021.

Most recently, Majors made headlines following an arrest in New York in March 2023. He was accused of assault by a woman he was dating, resulting in misdemeanor charges. Despite denying the allegations, Majors faces an upcoming trial in August 2023.

The Intense Workout Routine That Transformed Majors’ Body

To physically transform for roles in 2023’s “Magazine Dreams” and “Creed III,” Majors embarked on an intense workout regimen. He worked out three times a day for two hours each session, going above and beyond the typical two-a-day training of bodybuilders. His diet was just as disciplined, consuming around 6,100 calories daily to achieve his desired physique.

“I’m 6 feet tall. I’m 202 pounds,” Majors shared. “In order to sustain that and to grow that, you have to eat as much protein that you weigh. I ate 6,100 calories a day for about four months.”

His routine involved eating six meals per day, focusing on protein sources like chicken and elk. This demanding workout and diet proved highly effective, sculpting Majors’ muscular frame. But it also fueled speculation about whether he used steroids to achieve such dramatic results.

Addressing the Steroid Controversy

With Majors’ arrest came allegations that he had been using steroids, potentially causing roid rage that sparked the alleged dispute. A source who worked on “Creed III” claimed Majors was taking a specific steroid known as trenbolone or “tren” while filming.

Tren is a potent, synthetic steroid that can increase aggression and mood instability. However, Majors has asserted that his physique was built through hard work and discipline, not steroids. He credits his body transformation to the intense two-a-day workouts and 6,000+ calorie diet sustained over months of preparation.

While tren can help athletes rapidly build muscle, it comes with many risks like harming the reproductive system. Despite rumors, Majors has not confirmed ever using this or any other steroid. His team has begun gathering evidence, like video footage, to dispute the assault claims and clarify that steroids did not play a role.

The Details Behind Majors’ Arrest in New York

In March 2023, Jonathan Majors was taken into police custody following an alleged violent dispute with a woman. The incident occurred in New York after authorities received a 911 call reporting an assault.

The NYPD stated that Majors got into a fight with a 30-year-old woman he was dating, who sustained minor head and neck injuries. She was hospitalized briefly but recovered by the next day.

Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, insists her client is innocent and potentially the true victim. She argues the woman was emotionally unstable and taken to the hospital for that reason, not due to injuries. Chaudhry claims Majors never assaulted her.

The lawyer is working swiftly to gather exculpatory evidence like video footage and witness statements. They hope to get the charges dismissed. For now, a judge has issued a limited protection order and released Majors without bail.

The case is slated for trial in August 2023. If convicted of the misdemeanor charges, Majors could face up to a year in jail. He fervently denies wrongdoing and looks to clear his name, backed by his girlfriend, family, and fans.
