Tarzan's Jane has jokes! When Alexa Chung spotted reported boyfriend Alexander Skarsgård (and his abs) on a poster for his new movie, The Legend of Tarzan, she couldn't resist poking a little healthy fun at the crazy lengths he went to to get into vine-swinging shape.

In a selfie Chung, 32, shared on Instagram on Tuesday, the British beauty can be seen mimicking Skarsgård's grimace from the giant movie poster behind her. "Human. Nature. #tarzan I spent 6 months eating high protein meals 5 times a day and suffering through hefty regular workouts to prepare for this Instagram. Unclear what the other guy did," she joked in the caption.

Crazy, right? But Chung isn't exaggerating. Skarsgård, 39, recently admitted to talk show host Conan O'Brien that he worked out multiple times a day and ate only broccoli and chicken breast in the nine months leading up to the start of filming. Skarsgård further explained that he ate six meals a day, but because the portions were so small he constantly felt hungry. "I had to eat every three hours so I spent the entire day thinking about food," he said.

Well, the good news is, all that hard work definitely paid off!
