Tanner Buchanan’s fame has increased with each season of ‘Cobra Kai’, but at the same time he has had to deal with media pressure and certain stereotypes, for this reason he does not want to be compared to Chris Hemsworth or Channing Tatum.

In an interview with Glamor Magazine, Buchanan confessed that presenting a character within a karate world can be more than challenging, especially when it comes to physical appearance, A fundamental characteristic for many actors who show off big muscles in front of the cameras. But this has never been Tanner’s plan.
“For me, when I exercise, I just do it to stay healthy. I just want to stay healthy. That’s it. As long as I’m healthy, I don’t care. But when it comes to body image, it’s very difficult to be in this industry, because I’ve caught myself a few times looking at other actors and thinking, ‘Wow, they’re huge.. They seem so big. They have all those muscles that I definitely don’t have, ‘”confessed the young talent.
But I feel like, over the years, I’ve changed my mind to think, ‘If you work constantly and stay healthy, that’s all you need to do.’

I’m much smaller than that.”

I’m in tune with my Miyagi-Do side.”
This is how he has decided to implement moments of meditation in his day to day to deal with the different pressures that his career and personal life could bring to his life: “I think the best is to meditate and really take time for myself before I am anxious or stressed. It is important to sit in a quiet room, wear headphones, and listen to music to meditate. “ ended.
