Wearing a giant prosthetic belly to play “Fat Thor” in “Avengers: Endgame” led Chris Hemsworth to gain a whole new level of appreciation for what women experience while pregnant.

In the film, the Asgardian god has become so depressed and despondent after the events of “Infinity War” that he’s let himself go, growing a long beard gaining some serious weight gain.

Interviewed by the Daily Telegraph‘s Stellar magazine, the Australian actor was asked about the experience of playing “Fat Thor” in the Marvel blockbuster.

“A very strange day at work, yeah,” he said of wearing the prosthetic body suit. “It weighed around 40 kilos 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!”

In addition to the suit itself, Hemsworth revealed another trick that altered his physicality.

“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,” he explained. “Especially playing him again and again, you get locked in to certain expectations. That kind of broke the mold completely and allowed me to swing for the fences.”
