The director of Coldplay's video to recent single 'Strawberry Swing' told B.B.C. 6 Music as much after winning three awards for the video at the UK Music Video Awards.
Kenny, from the video makers Shynola, said he had been worried the Coldplay singer may not have been able to put up with the physically demanding shoot, having tested out some of the poses Martin would have to do.
The video features Martin flying to the rescue of a shrieking damsel dressed as a superhero.
The director said: "Chris Martin is incredibly fit, he's absolutely ripped. I'm sure he won't mind me saying that.
"He could do everything really well. He does loads of yoga and we had lots of bits where he was on a trolley and it was physically really difficult for him."
He added: "I did it for about 10 seconds as a test and after that my hips were hurting so much I just felt incredibly old. After that I thought, 'We are either gonna kill him, or we're going to get sued'," he said.
