8 Actors Before And After Marvel

At times it’s hard to motivate yourself to go to the gym. But a seven-figure salary might just do the trick. Recently, a Marvel fan gathered photos of actors before and after they got to play superhero roles and their body changes are unbelievable. Of course, many critical roles have actors working way before they even get to the set, but if you’re battling with bad guys for breakfast, there’s no question about it. Getting in shape is a must for sure.

Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt went through “three or four hours a day of regular, ass-kicking hard work” to be able to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy. Before loosing 60 pounds in six months, he weighed around 300 pounds. Marvel joined Pratt with personal trainer Duffy Gaver and nutritionist Phil Goglia. Goglia renovated Pratt’s diet, increasing his caloric intake to 4,000 calories a day and giving him lots and lots of water— one for every pound he weighed. “I was peeing all day long, every day. That part was a nightmare,” Pratt said. Pratt said he purposely increased weight for his Parks and Recreation role as Andy Dwyer, but now he’s dedicated to living ripped: “It gave me a sense of absolute control,” he said.

Chris Hemsworth

Out of all the celebrities who had to carry on mass for their Marvel movie, only some have taken up the job with such dedication and progress as Chris Hemsworth when he got the part of Thor. For the first movie, Hemsworth joined up with a trainer and former Navy SEAL, Duffy Gaver, who joined an old-school bodybuilding approach — with careful consideration given to Hemsworth’s arms and shoulders. Thor, after all, often sleeveless but seldom shirtless. All in all, Hemsworth obtained 20 pounds, laying the groundwork for a physique he’s kept at or close to top condition for Thor’s role in The Avengers and the sequel, Thor: The Dark World.

Finally, Hemsworth became a model of persistence and the physique he developed has made the “Chris Hemsworth Workout” the top search suggestion when you Google him. “People see Chris and they think he was on steroids but he didn’t touch a single substance,” Gaver says. “It was just red meat, heavyweights, and some protein powder. He smashed every single workout. He simply decided to look like Thor.”
