How Chris Hemsworth’s Wife Elsa Pataky Handled His Weight Loss Mood Swings

'Thor' as Jailbait
That time Chris Hemsworth was hit on in prison.

Losing a dramatic 33 lbs. in a month took a toll on Chris Hemsworth’s emotions—something wife, Elsa Pataky, had to deal with on a daily basis.

The 32-year-old star of The Avengers and Thor has built a career on some very well-muscled shoulders.

However, for his most recent film, In the Heart of the Sea, Hemsworth adhered to a rigorous diet of only 500 calories a day.

This dramatic weight loss was to help him whittle down his muscular frame to portray the role of a sailor stranded at sea for 90 days.

However, the weight loss came at a price. Hemsworth admitted to suffering from “moods” while depriving himself of the foods he loved.

Chris confessed to People that although his wife was supportive, “By the end of it she was happy for me to start eating again.”
