Chris Hemsworth made headlines with his hilarious appearance in SNL where he displayed a completely different side of his acting skills and showed his sense of humor. His growing fan base couldn’t be more excited to share in this success and be able to connect with the 31-year-old actor.

On his Twitter banner, Chris decided to promote his new film, Ron Howard’s In The Heart of the Sea, for which he had to lose a ton of weight to play a 19th century stranded sailor. This is in stark contrast to the buff physique that we are used to seeing in Hemsworth’s previous roles.
