Chris Hemsworth Is Nearly Unrecognizable In His Shirtless Weight Loss Photo!

Chris Hemsworth shared a shirtless photo of himself while prepping for his role in In the Heart of the Sea and his dramatic weight loss makes him look nearly unrecognizable!

The 32-year-old actor is known for his buff, superhero physique, but for his new movie, he had to lose a lot of weight.

Chris had already lost a good amount of weight for Black Hat, but was forced to lose 15 more for the new film, and said, “When you’re already starting off lean, it’s brutal to chew through that kind of weight. Every pound feels like a kilogram.”

“They had to work out every day, even on shooting days,” director Ron Howard told EW. “Because they had to lose the weight pretty fast and they had to lose it safely. They needed to keep burning the calories and we also needed that sinewy strength that was more of that era, as opposed to a kind of cut, buff look.”

Chris posted the shirtless weight loss pic on his Twitter with the caption, “Just tried a new diet/training program called “Lost At Sea”. Wouldn’t recommend it..#IntheHeartoftheSea.”

    Uhm to this is ridiculous dumb trend for actors to do this to their bodies. FIND a talented actor who is lean and fits that bill and if the script is already excellent and the director is excellent then where’s the problem of using an actor who may not be as famous. Chris Hemsworth is not Jack Nicholson and an audience going to see that film is going to see it for the subject matter not solely for the actor they are familiar with to see him look starved.

    This is how some of our great actors sit their reputation..Tom Hanks Stallone Leto ect..no doubt that they take those roles seriously..i want to say bravo..let see if the movie will be good…then some can spit their venom :)

    He may have needed his weight for other parts of the film, they can only have one actor for that. I suppose they could have gotten a slender actor and used a fat suit and makeup but then it would look ridiculous and take away from immersion of the audience. I do agree with everything you said though, there can’t be a healthy way to lose all that weight so quickly and no one goes to see his movies for his acting abilities for sure. But in the end, it’s his choice. Maybe he thinks he will get an oscar for it lol.

    Really interesting, the biggest body transformation since the Raging Bull, but I don’t think it’s really healthy. If you ask me, take it slower, I’ve lost 29 lbs with the Loaded Gun Diet during 2 months.

    It’s unhealthy and unnecessary. We’ve had film making before depicting hungry sickly people even on stage. Hire thin actors who are talented. Does an actor have to truly murder a person to play a killer? Or do they need to go on a drug binge to play an addict or actually commit attempt suicide to play a psychotic? They have now developed CGI programs to make an actor appear gaunt skeletor (look at those sickly extras that look emaciated on The Walking Dead, btw) ..It’s all called acting and then there is special effects and make-up.
