The We’re The Millers star also spoke about getting into makeup to portray Adam Warlock and discussed the difficulty of removing it all at the end of each shooting day.
‘There’s a very, very talented group of in charge of that. I literally can take no credit. I sit there and do nothing. Getting it off is a surprisingly long process…I would wear trash bags, actually, and we would go to town on the hot towels and wipes,’ he said.
Poulter briefly spoke about how Adam Warlock was more of an imperfect character than many would expect.
‘It became pretty clear they weren’t going for perfect when they cast me, they were going in a different direction with the role,’ he said.
