For his recent role in The Heart of The Sea, Hemsworth pretty much starved himself in order to drop weight dramatically, to have the appearance of starving sailor on a ship for the movie.

PLEASE DON’T DO THIS DIET. IT IS NOT HEALTHY.
From Thor to Twig?

Hemsworth told Entertainment Online,
“We have to shoot the really skinny stuff where we drop down to 5, 6, 700 calories a day, a good three or four weeks and it’s going to be pretty uncomfortable, but we’ll be together in our misery,” “I spend more time thinking about food than anything else at the moment.”

Here’s what he had to say about the toll this had on him not only physically, but mentally and emotionally.

I’ve competed before and know the feeling of mood swings, groggy, blurry, hungry, lethargic days, but 500 calories a day…oh man…that is starving. AND NOT HEALTHY. Again, you should not try this as a weight loss diet, we’re here at Body Mountain to help you with lifestyle progression the proper way.
But kudos to you, Mr. Hemsworth on your film and a great performance.
