Handsome actor Chris Hemsworth had to do a strict diet with only 500 calories per day for his role in In the Heart of the Sea. The strict diet had affected his body and way of thinking. Therefore, Hemsworth was very grateful to his wife, Elsa Pataky, who had supported him during the process.
“She had to put up with my moods,” Hemsworth said, “She’s great. I’d kind of done it before in Rush but not to this extreme. By the end of it, she was happy for me to start eating again.”
Hemsworth and Pataky then went to an Italian restaurant to eat pasta, pizza and all the wrong things. Hemsworth admitted he got food hangover because he had not eaten like that for a while.
That was not the first time for Hemsworth on a strict diet. Earlier in Rush, Hemsworth had also reduced his weight by 30 lbs and should regain his full muscles in the same year to become Thor.
