My favorite British action hero, Jason Statham is about to turn 50 but he admitted he’s “feeling pretty nimble” as he prepares to welcome his first child with his sexy Supermodel fiancé Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Oo-bloody-er!
The Hollywood hearttrob told April’s Men’s Health: “I’m moving better than I used to. I’m feeling pretty nimble.”
Jason, 49, is currently expecting his first child with supermodel Rosie, 29, but he seems to be feeling fit and ready for the new challenge.
In the interview, Jason revealed: “It’s about the whole thing: training, eating, sleeping… all of those have a massive impact on how you feel. And I’m doing better at all those things.
“Sly Stallone’s got 20 years on me and still looks good so he’s part of my inspiration.”
As he prepares to be a father, Jason also opened up about being labelled a ‘hardpan’, laughing: “These public labels, the things the media like to paint you as, I don’t really look at them. I see myself as a pretty standard sort of chap, really. I keep a lot of my pals close to me and I think that keeps my feet on the ground.”
He added: “Hollywood has a caustic effect on a lot of people. It’s a cruel business. You can get a big head about things. But what goes up must come down.”
Rosie confirmed her pregnancy last month, posting a stunning bikini snap to her Instagram, with her flaunting her growing bump as she posed on a beach.
“Very happy to share that Jason and I are expecting,” she captioned the image, crediting the photo to her actor fiancé.
The couple looked very loved-up as they attended Vanity Fair’s star-studded Oscars after party on Sunday night.
The floor-length satin number skimmed over her growing tum and the Victoria’s Secret model flaunted her ample cleavage as they posed together for photographers.
Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosia was later spotted congratulating Rosie as she beamed at her bump before they snapped a couple of pictures together.
The full interview is available in the April 2017 issue of Men’s health, on sale now. Also available as a digital edition.

Baby on board?! Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has fans speculating that she’s pregnant with her first child. The supermodel, 29, first ignited the rumors after she posted a serene-looking photo of herself with a horse on January 2.
“Here’s to fresh starts and exciting prospects for the new year. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2017..❤,” the Mad Max actress captioned the photo, in which she wears an oversize poncho.
Then on On Jan. 24, the leggy blonde strutted through LAX in a long dark coat, covering her midsection. Earlier in the month, she threw social media for a loop by wearing an over sized poncho in an Instagram snap. Prior to that, she was spotted in London on January 10 wearing a cream-colored trench that also kept her stomach concealed.
Are you pregnant?” one person commented on the snap, while another fan noted that Huntington-Whiteley allegedly deleted their comment after they also speculated that she may be expecting. “I asked her that question but she deleted it,” the person shared.
Though Huntington-Whiteley’s camp has yet to comment, a source said recently the “Mad Max” beauty appeared “noticeably pregnant” at a recent shoot.
However rep confirmed back in January 2016 that the former Victoria’s Secret model IS engaged to longtime boyfriend Jason Statham.
Huntington-Whiteley debuted her stunning engagement ring at the 2016 Golden Globes, flashing her gorgeous diamond while posing on Statham’s arm.
The couple, who have been together for six years, met on the set of Transformers in 2011.

Tough guy Vinnie Jones has confirmed he has been offered the role of former Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson in a planned big screen biopic about Jamie Vardy – as he hit out at modern day football.
“I’ve been approached and I’ve said that I’m interested, but there’s still a long way to go before that goes into production or anything comes from it. I would like to do it though,” he said, in an interview with CALIBRE Quarterly magazine.
But the ex-soccer hardman added that raw homegrown talent is slipping through the Premiership’s net because overseas bosses are too lazy.
The ex-midfielder blasted non-British managers for not making the effort to watch non-league matches outside of the major cities.
This prissy attitude is making it “harder and harder” for the likes of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and other unsung talent to make the leap from lower divisions.
Jones played for Conference League side Wealdstone before joining Wimbledon FC, a club for which he went on to play over 200 games during two spells.
51-year-old Jones, who now lives in Los Angeles, rated favorite for the role ahead of fellow ‘Lock, Stock’ star Jason Statham and Ray Stevenson, from TV’s ‘Rome’ after a vote on the Pearson casting ran in the Leicester Mercury. It appears the producers of the movie agreed with the poll.
He said: “Non-league football has been proven to be a place where great players can be found. Just look at Ian Wright, John Barnes, and Stuart Pearce.
“Non-league football is a tough place to learn the game but it sets you on the right track and gives you that passion, heart and desire to go on and succeed.”
Earlier this year it was revealed in the British Weekly that Jones was being lined up for the role by producers… We always knew!

British hunk Jason Statham is known mostly for his muscular, perpetually frowning characters he plays in action movies such as The Transporter, The Expendables and The Mechanic.
But, from April 1, and I ain’t fooling’ ya, we’ll get to know Stath’s softer side as the star of LG’s promo campaign for the launch of the G5. And it looks like a doozy!
LG says that the “high-flying, high-octane” Statham will play every character in the spot, which is scheduled to air from April 1. That’s the date the LG G5 will go on sale globally; in the US, pre-orders are already open at the big four carriers and retailers like Best Buy.
LG already released two short clips, and in one of them Statham is virtually unrecognizable, dressed as a well to do lady enjoying brunch. Oo-er!
It’s not clear how much dosh Jason was paid for starring in the commercial, but I can only imagine the amount of dollars it took for Stath’ to dress up as a bird!
I look forward to seeing the full commercial this Friday. Let’s hope Statham and director Fredrik Bond were able to deliver a funny and relatable clip for LG. Because, as HTC’s sad experience with Robert Downey Jr. showed us, no amount of star power can fix a bad idea! Just saying’…
Good luck with this ad Stath’… But I prefer you as the hunk we all know and love!

Gal-pals, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stood out from the crowd as they were spotted chatting and giggling at Jimmy Choo ‘Power Stylists Dinner’ in West Hollywood earlier this week.
Gwyneth, 43, and Rosie, 28, put their best assets on show for the event, which saw A-listers band together in support of legendary designers.
Cutting a svelte figure, Gwyneth attended the dinner wearing a seventies-style pink and white powder cat suit by Emilia Wickstead, complete with flared trousers and turtle neck.
The actress showed off her natural beauty by paring her makeup back and opting to wear her long blonde hair out in loose waves.
Meanwhile, leggy model Rosie stunned in a dark blue off-the-shoulder bandeau jumpsuit, showcasing her taut stomach and incredible complexion.
The Brit complemented the look with fresh red lipstick and simple but classic gold jewellery, proving the age-old adage that less is more.
The model-turned-actress’ engagement ring, given to her by long-time boyfriend Jason Stratham, dazzled the room.
Rosie has been extremely busy over the last few weeks, jetting across the world to strut down catwalks in various Fashion Week shows.
Hollywood actress Gwyneth looked relaxed and easy-going at the event, sipping on a martini and giggling with other stars before sitting down to enjoy dinner.
The mum-of-two’s laid-back attitude proves she hasn’t been swayed by the internet trolls publicly criticising her latest post on lifestyle website Goop.
Gwyneth had been slammed for uploading the recipe for the £158 breakfast smoothie she regularly consumes, which includes dubious ingredients such as Moon Dust and a sex-drive boosting herb. Oo-er!!!

Apparently, co-productions with Chinese companies are all the rage at the moment; with a huge potential box office in the country and Chinese financiers ready to splash the cash on the right project.
The latest to take advantage of the trend is a new Kurt Wimmer film boasting Jason Statham in the lead.
Wimmer’s latest script an action thriller will find our mate Stath’ as an ex-pat Brit living in Hong Kong who encounters a high-level female Chinese agent and is coerced into helping to solve a kidnapping case that carries global implications.
Statham is producing the film alongside partner Steven Chasman (The Bank Job, The Transporter 1, 2 & 3) and they’re working with Chinese company Road Pictures.
“Jason and I both have been wanting to work with Kurt for a long time,” says Chasman.
“He has such an incredible vision for this film that this collaboration is particularly exciting for us. The narrative Kurt creates is incredibly rich and while our story is rooted in adventure, it is also very much character driven.”
Statham’s next is Mechanic: Resurrection, which sees his return as Arthur Bishop and will be out on August 26 next year. Wimmer wrote and produced the new Point Break, which lands in the UK on February 12.
Jason is repped by CAA and Current Entertainment.

Fashion designer Victoria Beckham has started erasing a major part of her relationship with husband David Beckham — her three tattoos she once dedicated to him… Oo-er!
The former Spice Girl, allegedly decided to get rid of the ink because she wants to be taken “more seriously” in the fashion industry, according to new reports. We’re not sure how a field as creative as design could turn its nose up at pretty ink, but whatever you say, Posh.
However, the Beckhams are NOT in danger of breaking up; the message from Victoria as rumours fly about the state of their 16-year marriage.
The celebrity super couple are under scrutiny after the Sun Newspaper claimed the former Spice Girl was unhappy with David’s new friends Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whitely.
But a close frind of the couple has denied the rumours, telling the Daily Record: “It’s nonsense. David isn’t even friends with Jason and Rosie.”
They added: “The family were together for seven weeks on holiday recently. It’s all rubbish.”
Hmm, well what ever her reasoning is, it all seems a little odd, Vic did in fact show off her fading spine tattoo — which read “ I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” in Hebrew — at her New York Fashion Week show.
Maybe the event was its going away party?

After its newest installment, Fast and Furious 7 grossed a whopping $1.5 billion, Brit heartthrob Jason Statham has already agreed to star in yet another sequel of the American action film franchise.
“We’re already talking about doing another one, part eight,” Statham said.
And who can blame him! It was the first movie which starred Statham, who played the antagonist in the film. Apparently the producers were so happy with Jace’s performance that they are working (ahem) furiously on securing him for Fast and Furious 8.
Spoiler Alert! The 7th movie followed Dominic Toretto played by Vin Diesel, Brian O’Conner played mostly by the late and great Paul Walker, (to whom the film was a tribute) and the rest of their gang as they returned to the United States to live normal lives.
The movie starts off with a bang as Deckard Shaw kills Han, a member of Toretto’s team in Tokyo and at the same time blows up the gang’s house in the States. The film rolls on furiously afterwards, and although Shaw avoids capture for most of the movie, eventually he is taken into custody by Hobbs and locked away in a secret, high-security prison.
The ending already left open the opportunity to bring Statham back for the next movie, and as confirmed by the actor himself recently, he will indeed be rejoining the cast of Fast and Furious 8. This will also make the British actor the second person after Diesel to be reappearing in the next film.
Rumors are now circulating about the next movie in the franchise include a New York setting and also talks of Eva Mendes rejoining the circus, who appeared in the second film 2 Fast 2 Furious back in 2003 as an undercover U.S. Customs Service agent Monica Fuentes.
Statham added: “I’m a newcomer. I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know I’m going to be doing another.”
Since “The Fast and the Furious” debuted back in 2001, the franchise as a whole has earned nearly $4 billion worldwide at the box office… Oo-er!
