Chris Hemsworth has decided to go all out for his next role, Heart Of The Sea, which is about the true events that inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick. And that means losing a LOT of weight and mass!
Here's what the 30 year old hunk said to Jimmy Kimmel about it:
”A bunch of sailors in a whaling ship get struck by a whale, the ship sinks and they jump onto the small rafts and drift for 90 days. And basically they begin to die and eat each other. [It's] a romantic comedy.”
All jokes aside, big burly sailors won't be burly for long in that situation… so the cast is eating just 500 or 600 calories a day!
“It’s funny, you’ve never heard 15 big, burly guys playing sailors talk about their calorie-count, what they should and shouldn’t eat, what their cheat meal is going to be. I mean, you can consume 600 calories in a milkshake. So it ends up being a couple of small salads, a couple of small pieces of protein and that’s kind of it and you go to bed hungry.
“And then you have like a fasting period of 15 hours, like you stop eating completely, and then you have little meals through the day.”
Sounds like a crazy regimen!
We're not sure we could handle it — though, if it means spending time with Thor, we'd give it a shot! We'd be his co-star ANY day!!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear his handsome face talk about it, along with Halloween in the U.K.!
Oh, and check out the HIGHlarious Strong Man competition they made him do on the show HERE!!
We've been hearing a lot about CTE recently -- chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the brain disease caused by repeated blows to the head in athletes like football players -- and now Cuba Gooding Jr. has made some inneresting comments about it and O.J. Simpson.
