Chris Hemsworth shocked his Instagram followers on Sunday night after sharing a photo of himself looking extremely skinny following a dramatic weight loss. However, the 32-year-old quickly reassured his fans, revealing that the drastic transformation is part of his role in upcoming movie ‘In the Heart of the Sea’.
The father-of-three initially caused a stir amongst his legions of fans with the striking snap, which sees him having swapped his world-famous muscular physique for a totally different look – a slender, frail-looking build.
“Just tried a new diet/training program called “Lost At Sea”,” he quipped in the caption, referencing the upcoming drama which sees him playing a First Mate left shipwrecked with his crew in the ocean after a whale attacks their boat. He added: “Wouldn’t recommend it… #IntheHeartoftheSea.”
Adding to the “Lost At Sea” effect, the Avengers: Age of Ultron actor also rocks long dishevelled hair and an unkempt beard, a stark contrast to his usually groomed look.
