Typically toned Chris Hemsworth shocked his Instagram followers this weekend with a photo that showed his emaciated body and overgrown hair. 

But he's not just letting himself go — Hemsworth took the photo while filming the upcoming shipwreck dramaIn The Heart of the Sea, which opens December 11. The Ron Howard-directed adventure is based on a true story that inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick.

That's one way to do publicity for your movie! We trust that Hemsworth is eating normally again.
