(LOS ANGELES) — Dieting, for most people, is not much fun, but Saturday Night Live vet Jason Sudeikis says he decided to take a different approach to losing weight.
In the August 2013 issue of Elle magazine Sudeikis reveals that hot sex with his 29-year-old fiancee, Olivia Wilde, has helped him shed some pounds. The 37-year-old actor says, “The truth is, I’m not getting up an hour earlier and walking on a treadmill. I have the greatest workout partner in the world.”
He adds, “And you don’t need a gym membership for that kind of workout.”
Wilde once said in an interview that she and Sudeikis “have sex like Kenyan marathon runners,” and as it turns out, she wasn’t joking. Aside from getting “wilde” between the sheets, Sudeikis says he also slimmed down by watching his diet.
He explains, “A lot of it comes from tiny things, like not eating barbecue sauce with my pizza at two in the morning,” he explains. “I think it’s all a manifestation of being happy and wanting to treat myself well.”
The couple started dating in November 2011, and got engaged in January 2013. Their wedding is scheduled for spring 2014.
