Jason Statham keeps a food diary.

The hunky actor - who is famed for his muscular physique and hardman reputation - never used to be concerned about what he ate but as he's getting older her pays more attention and tries not to go over 2,000 calories a day by eating six small meals.

The 44-year-old star said: "I never gave a f**k about a calorie. An apple? It's good for me. I'd have five. Bananas? Eat the bunch.

"But it's different now and writing everything down makes it impossible for you to muck up."

Jason - who is dating model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - also revealed he is drawn to roles that showcase his tough side rather than the more delicate ones.

The 'Killer Elite' actor told The Guardian newspaper: "Luckily, I get to play some good bits that make people think I'm tough. I just gravitate to those more testosterone-filled sort of parts than me playing something a bit more fairy-like."
