Liam Hemsworth Admits He Basically Starved Himself to Prepare for His Shirtless Scenes in ‘The Dressmakers’

Liam Hemsworth put in a lot of work in preparation for his shirtless scenes in The Dressmakers.

During a recent interview with E!, the actor admitted that he basically starved himself in the weeks leading up to his nearly-nude film scene with co-star Kate Winslet.

“I didn’t eat for weeks,” Hemsworth told the website. “I did some pushups in my trailer. Anytime you’re going to come out and take your top off, it’s good to do a couple of pushups… It’s very difficult to come out and just take your clothes off.”

Even the Titanic alum noticed his lack of food intake. “When I would get to the point where I had to measure his waist, I would actually hear his stomach growling,” she said. “I would think, ‘Poor darling. Let’s get the scene done. Give him some chips!”
