‘I’m not ashamed of my body. It’s fun to push yourself into the ground and humiliate yourself for a laugh.

‘I saw the first clip of a movie I made this year and there is a sequence where I get stripped and my clothes are torn from me.

“My agent said, ‘The movie is great – but you really have to go to the gym. To be a really successful actor in this city, you have to go to the gym. “

“He had seen with clenched teeth and thought, ‘Oh my God, why does my client look like that?’ Why is he so rudely willing to present that body to the world? “

Jack added: ‘It had not occurred to me. I had seen my pale, fluttering body fluttering around and thinking, yes that’s funny. ‘

The comedian did not say which film it was, but he has roles in upcoming projects Robots and Silent Retreat.

It comes after Jack expressed fears he could be canceled by Hollywood if any of his past jokes ever came back to haunt him.

In a talk with comedian Jarlath Regan on the podcast An Irishman Abroad, Jack said: ‘I feel like I’ve certainly said jokes in the past that would be worthy of cancellation.’

Jack, who recently appeared on Netflix’s Jonas Brothers Family Roast, added: “I think that’s how you’ve coping with that storm if it ever shows up.”

He explained that as a comedian, he feels that historical jokes are easier to get rid of, as opposed to tweets or ‘comments in interviews’, as the public knows it was a joke.

He said: ‘I’ve had it like this a couple of times and I think maybe people are feeling a little better now.

‘We’ve had a couple of these ridiculous cancellations of people because of historical jokes, which – especially with a comedian because it was told in jest and the context of it was only meant as a joke – as you tend to to get away with it a little bit more. ‘

He added: 'My agent said, "The movie is great ¿but you really need to be in the gym.  To become a really successful actor in this city, you have to go to the gym"'

He added: “My agent said, ‘The movie is great – but you really have to go to the gym. To be a really successful actor in this city, you have to go to the gym. “
