This new Thor look, which was introduced in Avengers: Endgame, has been a huge topic of discussion since the film hit theaters a couple of months ago.

Hemsworth explained the experience of using these pregnant prosthetics.

"A very strange day at work, yeah. It weighed around 40kg so it was very heavy. It’s a silicon sort of prosthetic suit with a zip at the back, and at any moment people would come up and rub my stomach. I know how my wife feels now when she was pregnant!"

Weighed Down


Hemsworth says to help transform into Fat/Thicc Thor, the crew also had the actor wear weights on specific parts of his body.

"I had weights in my wrist and my ankles to make me move differently, but I enjoyed the transformation and freedom to do whatever I wanted with the character."

'Bro Thor' a Welcome Break From Real Thor

Hemsworth says playing a character, even a complex one like Thor, more than once can put the actor into a bit of a rut. Bringing in "Bro Thor" was a welcome experience for Hemsworth.

"Especially playing him again and again, you get locked in to certain expectations. That kind of broke the mould completely and allowed me to swing for the fences."
