Chris Hemsworth’s physique might look like it’s sculpted by the gods in his new film, Thor: Ragnarok, but in reality, the God of Thunder was powered by plants.
Hemsworth’s personal trainer, Luke Zocchi, recently told Today Extra that “Thor” went vegan during filming. “That was a big experiment we tried was that if he could keep the muscle eating vegan,” said Zocchi.
And Thor’s go-to meal? Vegan burgers.
The revelation comes after Hemsworth told Magnus Movie Minutes that he’d been injecting a bit of vegan cooking into his program.
“I certainly felt better, you know,” he said, “having a bit more of a balance and getting a lot more fibre and healthy vegetables and fruits.”
And of course, Chris isn’t the first Hemsworth to espouse the benefits of a vegan diet, as his younger brother, Liam, was named one of PETA Australia’s Sexiest Vegan Celebrities in 2017.
