He undertook a 21-day fast

The actor participated in the Bible-inspired Daniel Fast, based on the Old Testament prophet, who limited his diet to vegetables and water to be able to cleanse his body and focus on a spiritual connection to God. Speaking on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert', he said: "I just came off it a couple days ago. It's a 21-day fast. A lot of people are doing it. I did it through my church. It's based on Daniel, the book of Daniel, the prophet Daniel from the Old Testament. "He was a guy who only ate fruits and vegetables and grains, and didn't have any breads and didn't have any animal products. I was inspired by my pastor, we do it, it's kind of like our Lent, you know, give something up. So for 21 days I had no meat, no sugar, no alcohol, and it was actually amazing. It was really cool."
