"Maybe I'm getting old": Muscle God Chris Hemsworth Leaving MCU as He Finds Working Out for Thor "Exhausting"?

Chris Hemsworth is one the most good-looking and strongly built actors by the name of Chris in the MCU. Chris Hemsworth is not just our favorite because he plays the strongest, sassiest character in the MCU but also because his body is Body GOALS. Chris Hemsworth’s chiseled body is not so easy to come by, it takes a strict diet and a stricter training program.

Recently we saw the hunk on Thor: Love and Thunder, the actor trained for months and came on set looking bigger than ever. Even though the movie did fairly well at the box office, it did not receive positive critical reviews, Chris Hemsworth gave it all.

Thor: Love and Thunder actor, said he took 10 meals a day, yes, to build the target physique he had to have huge meals and so instead of having 3 to 4 meals he broke them down to 10. Each meal would be 450 calories. This was not the first time he was going under a transformation but the actor said this time around it was tougher. Every time he transforms it is usually easy, he explained that muscle memory also helped speed up the transformation process.

“Each time I’ve played the character and put the muscle on and out the size on, and then lost it for something else and played another character, there’s muscle memory, and I used to say it sort of got easier each time.”

In Thor: Love and Thunder he had less time to transform and the goal was bigger than ever. The Ghostbuster actor had no time, during the transformation to do anything except, eat, sleep, train, and repeat. “It was train, eat, train, eat. Nothing else to do,” he explained. “Then I turned up for the film bigger than I’ve ever been.”

Chris Hemsworth said he might not do it again.

To build that body, Chris Hemsworth had to take in 4,500 calories per day. His nutritionist revealed that they avoided chicken and broccoli because the chicken would not fulfill his protein requirements and would make eating very tough.

It sounds like a daunting task, even the actor who has done it many times confessed that it was exhausting this time and probably would not consider doing it again. “It was just exhausting,” Hemsworth said. “I don’t know, maybe I’m getting old, but things just started to hurt more.”

Elaborating on how he felt about getting big and the whole transformation process, Hemsworth told Insider “This was particularly hard. I think because the target weight we aimed for was quite a ways above where I’d been before. It was a really fun exploration, but I don’t know that I wanna get that big again,”

While the movie might not have been a huge success, Chris Hemsworth and the entire cast and crew worked extremely hard, to bring us Thor on the big screen. The actor has decided to take a break from acting as he found out that he is genetically pre-disposed to get Alzheimer’s. This news has made him look at things from a different perspective and he told Variety he wants to take time off, but is open to play Thor if MCU decides to do something entirely different with the character.

“It really triggered something in me to want to take some time off, and since we finished the show, I’ve been completing the things I was already contracted to do. Now when I finish this tour this week, I’m going home and I’m going to have a good chunk of time off and just simplify. Be with the kids, be with my wife.”
