It Takes 35 Meals a Day to Look Like Chris Hemsworth

Say whaaaaat.


If you've watched Thor, Captain America, or The Dark Knight Rises, then you've seen Bobby Holland Hanton. Bobby, currently filming the third Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok, has been a stunt double for a league of extraordinary (hot) gentlemen including Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Christian Bale, and Channing Tatum. 

He started working with Chris Hemsworth on Snow White and the Huntsman and has stuck with him since. As Chris's double, Bobby reveals he had to eat 35 meals a day to get 'anywhere near his size.' 35!! 'I also have to train twice a day,' he tells Buzzfeed, 'Chris is naturally a monster and all he has to do is look at weights and he grows.' We believe it. 


As for what exactly those 35 meals consist of, he's told Muscle and Fitness that he followed a strict diet that was 'high protein, good fats, good carbs,' with meals like 'grilled chicken or turkey with spinach and natural nuts, boiled eggs, and a green tea.' He was also barred from eating sugar, salt, and any sauces. 


'Two weeks before we started [shooting], I upped my training to an hour and a half a session twice a day, six days a week to try and gain that size and I had to focus a lot on arms. His arms are huge and they were on show a lot with costume,' Bobby says. He also had to wear 'two-inch lifts' because of Chris's height, which made it feel like doing stunts with heels on.

As for what it's like to work with Chris, Bobby says he's 'funny as shit' and 'a great dad, great husband, great friend...all around legend. We have become very close friends now, I love him.'
