Mark Ruffalo Describes Playing The Hulk As “Humiliating”
Actor Mark Ruffalo has done some fantastic films but he’ll, perhaps, always be known as the guy who plays Bruce Banner and the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In a recent interview with a magazine, the actor spoke about how playing the character was “humiliating” and that his peers on the set would often laugh at him when he ventured out in his “man-cancelling suit”.
“I’ve done so much motion capture,” the actor said, “I have to wear what I call the man-cancelling suit, which is this really tight leotard that makes you look big where you want to look small and small where you want to look big.”
“It was so humiliating, and all the actors, whenever I walked on set, would just start laughing at me because they were in their cool superhero costumes and I’m wearing these ridiculous pajamas that made me look like a Chinese checkerboard,” he added.
He even shared that during the Avengers” Endgame shoot, Robert Downey Jr who plays Iron Man, came up to him and said: “‘I have a lot of compassion for you. And I was like, ‘Why?’ He’s like, ‘Because I see how hard it is for you to stand around in that costume all day’.”
