Chris Hemsworth Revealed His Shocking Weight Loss in an Instagram Photo

The actor went to serious lengths for his role in In the Heart of the Sea. 

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.
