‘NCIS’ Actor Wilmer Valderrama’s Hysterical Reason Behind Not Working Out with Terry Crews

by Clayton Edwards

Wilmer Valderrama is a man of many talents. Currently, most fans know him as Agent Torres on NCIS. However, his career really took off back in 1998. He was 18 years old when he landed the role of Fez in That 70s Show. Being on that hugely popular series opened a number of doors for Valderrama. After being Fez, he had a lengthy career in television. He appeared on Grey’s Anatomy, Robot Chicken, The Sopranos, and even voiced the popular children’s character, Handy Manny among many other projects.

However, Wilmer Valderrama’s talents don’t stop there. He is also a singer. Right now, he only has two singles floating around. One is a solo single called “The Way I Fiesta,” the other is with a handful of other artists, and is called “Salud.” They came out in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Valderrama also works behind the camera. He directed the music video for “Salud,” as well as an episode of Disney’s Imagination Movers.

On top of all of that, Wilmer Valderrama takes time to condition his body. In a 2019 interview with Men’s Health, Valderrama revealed that he had been training MMA for over a decade. That training helps to keep him in shape. At the same time, it gives him the confidence to take on the world. It also has the added bonus of helping him meet some of his favorite pro fighters.

So, Wilmer Valderrama is in great shape. However, in that same interview, a fan asked him if he worked out with Terry Crews. His response was hilarious.

Why Wilmer Valderrama Doesn’t Work Out with Terry Crews

The Men’s Health interview wasn’t a traditional one. Instead of answering questions from a journalist connected to the publication, Wilmer Valderrama answered questions from fans. Men’s Health just curated the questions for him to answer.

At one point, a photo of Wilmer Valderrama and Terry Crews comes up on the screen. The fan wanted to know if he and Crews work out together. It’s a fair question. It seems like the two are friends. At the same time, they both work out. So, it seems like a perfect match.

“I don’t,” he answered. However, he added, “But, we’ve talked about it. A lot.” Then, he went on to say a few words about Crews. “I love Terry so much,” Wilmer Valderrama said. “He’s such an inspiration. Not just his body but his discipline of himself and all that.”

Finally, Valderrama gave the reason that he and Crews haven’t become gym buddies. “Ultimately, I haven’t worked out with him because I don’t really like to be embarrassed.”

In a way, that is understandable. Wilmer Valderrama is in great shape and has ten years of fight training under his belt. On the other hand, Terry Crews’ muscles have muscles. The guy is absolutely massive. They definitely compete in different weight classes.
