Just months ago Chris Hemsworth was sharing his shocking weight loss for his role in In The Heart of The Sea, but the actor showed off quite a different physique during a day out with his brother Luke. The actor's sibling shared a snap on Instagram of their day out, causing a social media frenzy as Chris revealed his incredibly muscular figure in a sleeveless top.

"Hey @chrishemsworth do you even lift bro?" Luke quipped in the caption as his brother showed off his muscular bicep while the pair hung out with friends.

This marks an incredible transformation for Chris, who just months ago was unrecognisable after having lost a dramatic amount of weight for the action film. The star alarmed fans when he posted a photo of his skinny body, but quickly reassured them that it was a temporary look.

"Just tried a new diet/training program called "Lost At Sea"," he quipped in the caption accompanying the Instagram snap, referencing the upcoming drama which sees him playing a First Mate left shipwrecked with his crew in the ocean after a whale attacks their boat. He added: "Wouldn't recommend it… #IntheHeartoftheSea."

Chris shocked fans with his dramatic weight loss for In The Heart of the Sea

At the time of filming, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star revealed he found the weight loss process "pretty uncomfortable" but quipped that he was comforted because he was joined by the other cast members in the gruelling routine.

"We have to shoot the really skinny stuff where we drop down to five, six, 700 calories a day, a good three or four weeks," he told Entertainment Tonight. "And it's going to be pretty uncomfortable, but we'll be together in our misery."

Chris, who is married to Spanish model and actress Elsa Pataky, also confessed that he wasn't finding the dieting lifestyle particularly appealing, as he often felt hungry. "I spend more time thinking about food than anything else at the moment," he said.
