With more than 46 million followers on Instagram, it's no secret Chris Hemsworth is always keeping fit and in great shape. However, as he gears up for his recurrent role as Thor in the next franchise film, Thor Love and Thunder, it's understandable that the actor is in full training mode right now. So much so, that his stunt double is feeling overwhelmed per se because it means he too has to be just as toned and muscular.
Bobby Holland Hanton has been working with Hemsworth since 2013 and recently spoke about bulking up with the actor, noting it's not even fun anymore. "Everyone is like, 'Wow, look at the size and him.' I'm like yes, brilliant, now I have to put on that size as well," he said on the Australian radio show Fitzy and Wippa, according to CinemaBlend.com. "I text him, I'm like, 'Thanks very much dude, this is going to be even harder this time!... He's now the biggest Thor he's ever been; so, I have to be the biggest I've ever been... ."
The actor then noted how he's having to eat as often as every two hours to keep the mass going strong, admitting it's not as fun as it sounds. "Every two hours, we're eating. It's become a chore. I don't enjoy eating at all every two hours." This wouldn't be the first time Hanton has had to put on weight for a role considering he's a high-demand stunt double. He's worked with other A-list stars like Henry Cavill, Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, and plenty more.
While Hemsworth is known for his incredibly toned physique, he did shock fans when appearing in Avengers: Endgame when he added weight differently. In fact, fans were so taken back by his new appearance; several took to social media to share their thoughts with several hilariously in favor of his new body. That's not the case for Thor anymore because he's coming back, more significant than ever.
Hemsworth co-star Chris Pratt recently joked that the actor should stop working out so much. After Pratt made it official that he would be joining Hemsworth in the next film, he encouraged Hemsworth to chill on the workouts. While the Australian native shared a photo of him flipping a heavy tire, showing off his size, Pratt commented, "Just heard from my trainer and he needs you to stop working out. Since we're gonna be in the same movie and everything, he doesn't want me to stand next to you if you look like that. So I'm gonna need you to put on 25 pounds real quick. Cool, thanks."
