‘Thor’ star Chris Hemsworth says COVID-19 restriction helped him train

The “God of Thunder” is bigger than ever in the latest “Thor” movie.

Actor Chris Hemsworth, who plays the Asgardian member of the Avengers in “Thor: Love and Thunder,” told USA Today that “boredom” during COVID-19 lock-in helped him build up.

Hemsworth told the newspaper he had a routine of swimming, martial arts and a diet of 6,000 calories a day.

“It was train, eat, train, eat,” Hemsworth said. “Nothing else to do. Then I showed up for the movie bigger than I have ever been. ”

The actor said his wife said his new look was “too much”.

Hemsworth said balancing exercise, eating and sleeping with 12-hour days on set was “something else” and exhausted him.

“It was awful,” Hemsworth said. “I will not do it again. They can give me a fancy muscle-y costume next time. I am finished.”

Several action stars have spoken out about the unattainable standards and intense body visits placed on actors in superhero movies.

Taika Waititi, director of “Thor: Love and Thunder,” told USA Today it was “crazy” to see how big Hemsworth became before the movie.

“He’s big already, but when I saw his arms, they were twice as big as normal, as wide as my head,” Waititi said. “Trainers and stuff ask me how he does it? But it is all natural. ”

Hemsworth’s “natural” approach to getting bigger led to an “au naturel” appearance in the movie.

The trailer for the movie features a teaser of a scene where Hemsworth reveals his posterior.

Waititi said in an interview with Variety last month that the “Thor” star had to “show off” his body in the movie.

“My whole thing was like, Chris works so hard, you have to show it,” he said.

“Do not cover it with all these suits and the cape and stuff, it is not fair.”
