The body double of Chris Hemsworth has said he is struggling to keep up with the Thor actor’s size.
Hemsworth has undergone his biggest transformation yet to play the God of Thunder in Marvel sequel Thor: Love and Thunder, which is currently filming in Australia.
But, this time around, Bobby Holland Hanton is finding it harder than ever as Hemsworth is “the biggest Thor he’s ever been”.
Appearing on Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa, a morning radio show in Australia, he said: “Everyone is like, ‘Wow, look at the size and him’, but I text him like, ‘Thanks very much dude, you’ve just made this even harder!”‘
Holland Hanton, who has been Hemsworth’s body double since Thor: The Dark World in 2013, has had to increase his calorie intake so he can gain enough muscle.
This means he has to eat “seven meals a day at just the right time” in order to attain the same physique as Hemsworth, something he describes as a “chore”.
“It’s full on,” the body double admitted, adding: “I don’t enjoy eating at all.”
Despite this, he says he’s prepared to tackle the “challenge” head on.
“I have to be the biggest I’ve ever been,” Holland Hanton said, describing Hemsworth as “a man mountain”.
Last week, Hemsworth was pictured on set of the new Taika Waititi film alongside Chris Pratt, who is just one of many Guardians of the Galaxy characters set to appear.
PEOPLE PAY MILLIONS OF POUNDS OR DOLLARS TO WATCH THESE FILMS IN THE CINEMAS AND THE ACTORS NEED TO STEP UP TO THE ROLES THEY ARE PLAYING. WHEN THEY START TO HIRE BODY DOUBLES, THEN IT IS VERY DECEPTIVE AND MAKES A MOCKERY OF ALL THOSE WHO WATCH THE MOVIES, THINKING THE ACTORS ARE THE ONES REALLY PLAYING THE ROLES IN THE FILMS!!!
