RICHARD Madden has been pictured snogging model Lara Stone for his new British Vogue interview, where he has opened up about stripping off for roles and his body image battle.
The 32-year-old hunk sent fans into a tizzy when his bare buttocks were shown during BBC series The Bodyguard, but Richard has now insisted that it’s not just women in the industry who have their looks scrutinised.

Speaking to Vogue, the Scottish actor explained: “We’re projecting a very unrealistic body image.
“I find myself with actor friends – after we’ve done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes – looking at each other going: ‘We’re just feeding this same s*** that we’re against.’
“I’ve done numerous jobs where you’re told to lose weight and get to the gym.
“It doesn’t just happen to women, it happens to men all the time as well.”
