Chris Hemsworth is definitely one of the hottest guys in the world, but fans were shocked when the hunky actor recently tweeted a photo of his scrawny self.
The actor revealed it was a recent shot for a sea-themed movie. Hemsworth’s tweet read, “Just tried a new diet/training program called “Lost At Sea”. Wouldn’t recommend it.. #IntheHeartoftheSea.”
It was shocking to see Hemsworth look thin and unkempt as this image considering the hunky roles he’s had in the past, especially as Marvel Comics superhero Thor for the movie franchise.
Still, fans who have been following Hemsworth’s tweets and movies outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe knew that he had lost some weight for Blackhat, a film by Michael Mann. But the weight loss for In the Heart of the Sea was just too drastic from his Thor image that it was heart-wrenching for many fans.
Hemsworth revealed, “When I started, I was leaner than my Thor weight, anyway, because I’d been on Michael’s film. When you’re already starting off lean, it’s brutal to chew through that kind of weight. Every pound feels like a kilogram.”
For the weight loss program, Hemsworth and his co-actors had to be content with just 500 calories a day.
But he had more revelations and insights on his new appearance and he was not the only one who lost a lot of weight for the movie. He revealed, “We kind of went insane, weighing ourselves every day. We all felt like a bunch of supermodels, trying to get down in weight for a show, or something. That’s all we spoke about. You’ve got 15 burly blokes on the sea and all we talked about was our diet, and who’d lost more weight, and who’s looking really skinny. It’s ridiculous!”
