Being Thor isn’t easy. Chris Hemsworth had to eat 16 meals a day when he trained for his Avengers character.
The 32-year-old actor recently revealed that as he’s getting older his preparations to play the hammer-wielding superhero are becoming more extreme as he can’t withstand the rigours of training the way he used to, reports News24.com.

He added that he eats 16 meals a day and lifts as heavy as he can, but over the years a person’s shoulders can’t lift what it once could.
The actor lived on just 500 calories a day to play a starving seafarer in In the Heart of the Sea and he admitted it made him feel like s#!t and he was constantly moody and agitated.
