Chris Pine looks as hot as ever as Men's Fitness magazine's newest cover star.

How did the 35-year-old actor get such a technically hot physique for his role in the upcoming third Star Trek film, Star Trek Beyond, and for his role in Wonder Woman? Not by going on a superhero actors' diet to bulk up, for starters.

"You've got Thor, you've got Captain America," he told the magazine. "These guys are eating 5,000, 7,000 calories, waking up just to eat food, eating 15 meals a day. For your liver, I don't think that's healthy."

He did, however, recently get more fit by swinging steel, baseball bat-like Clubbells, as well as kettlebell and dumbbells. He also enlisted the help of a personal trainer, Mark Wildman.

Pine, who plays Captain James T. Kirk in the hit Star Trek reboot series and Diana Prince's love interest in Wonder Woman, holds a Clubbell and showcases his bulging biceps in a black T-shirt on the July / August 2016 cover.

"Before this," he told Men's Fitness. "I was doing pretty traditional weightlifting...with this workout, all of a sudden you start to float more. Even my friends used to make fun of the way I walked. I was walking in this rigid way, and it had a lot to do with having been an insecure kid trying to move protectively. Now, my body is moving in a more healthful way. It's because of Mark's process."

Star Trek Beyond is set for release on July 22. The movie also stars recurring actors Zachary Quinto as Spock, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Karl Urban as Bones, John Cho as Sulu and Anthon Yelchin, who recently died in a car accident, as Chekov.

Gal Gadot reprises her Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice role of Prince / Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman. The movie is set for release in June 2017.
