98% of them can't act for shit. It'd be a death sentence for cape flicks. >>114170310
Thats dehydration...not muscle. Great for pose but might as well go a muscle suit/stunt double at that point.
Most female actors looking for a long term career aren't going to bulk up because test audiences show that muscles are a turn off. Like it or not female actors sale on the classical female model of gene, tender, and sexy. To the world at large big, bulking muscles is just a dyke/man-in-a-dress.
Kinda funny thinking about it. For all the bitching that goes on here about women being pushed into more realistic looking /co/&/v/ gear and roles, its cape movie shit that gets ignored.
