While Chris Hemsworth's transformation into the mighty Asgardian God of Thunder has a lot of fans excited, not everyone loves the end result - including the actor's wife Elsa Pataky.
However in a recent interview, Hemsworth confessed that Pataky felt that his body in Thor’s fourth headlining film was a slightly overboard.
“My wife was like, ‘Bleh, it’s too much,’” he confessed during an interview with USA Today.
“There are a lot of my male friends who are like, ‘Yeah!’ but a lot of female friends and family are like, ‘Yuck'.”
The former Home and Away actor said he got the larger than ever for his latest stint as the God of Thunder.
“It came from boredom, sitting in Covid lockdown was like a prison,” He added. “It was train, eat, train, eat. Nothing else to do. Then I turned up for the film bigger than I’ve ever been.”
Director Taika Waititi divulged that although Hemsworth was ‘huge’ already, Hemsworth’s arms were ‘twice as big as normal’ when he arrived on set.
Hemsworth's diet for Thor: Love and Thunder has received a lot of attention following the release of the film.
His co-star, Natalie Portman, shared the thoughtful act the Australian star did to prepare for their kissing scene.
The actor skipped his usual meaty dishes before filming their scene because Portman is vegan when Thor and Portman's character Jane Foster rekindle their romance.
"The day we had a kiss scene he didn’t eat meat that morning, because I’m vegan. And he eats meat like every half hour. Like, that was so thoughtful.," Portman told Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp.
Although Portman has been a vegetarian since she was eight and a vegan since 2009, she did not ask Hemsworth to skip is meaty meals. He made the decision to do so without her knowing.
She added: "That’s not something I’m angry about or care about, but he was just being thoughtful. He’s just a very nice person.”
Thor: Love and Thunder has proven to be a success at the worldwide box office so far, with the sequel on track to accumulate $400m at the worldwide box office so far, Forbes reports.
