Chris Hemsworth became bigger and more muscular than ever before Thor: Love and Thunderbut his wife Elsa Pataky was not a fan.
As seen in the trailer, Hemsworth goes completely naked to a scene in his latest outing as the Nordic god, showing off his worn physique.
“My wife said, ‘Bleh, that’s too much,'” Hemsworth said USA today of her reaction to his body. “There are a lot of my male friends who say ‘Yes!’ but many female friends and family say “Yuck.”
The Marvel star said his particularly muscular appearance in the latest film was a result of Covid.
“It came from boredom,” he said. “Sitting in the Covid lockdown was like a prison. It was training, eating, training, eating. Nothing else to do. Then I showed up to the movie bigger than I’ve ever been.”
Hemsworth’s coach recently revealed that the Australian actor eats eight meals a day to maintain an amount of calories sufficient for all of his weight training.
Director Taika Waititi was also surprised by the size of Hemsworth when he returned for the fourth inning: “It’s crazy how big Chris got for this. He is already big, but when I saw his arms, they were twice as big as usual, as wide as my head. Coaches and stuff like that ask me how he does it? But it is completely natural. ”
Last year, Hemsworth’s body double expressed his irritation at having to keep up with the 38 – year – old actor’s intense diet and exercise regime.
Holland Hanton – which has been Hemsworth’s body double since Thor: The Dark World in 2013 – said during an Australian TV interview: “I do not enjoy [the] eat at all. “
He continuedP “Everyone is like, ‘Wow, look at the size of [Hemsworth]’, but I write to him like,’ Thank you so much guy, you just made it even harder! ‘
