Actor Chris Hemsworth is famous for the role of Thor in many of Marvel's films, most recently Avengers: Endgame, where he transformed into a someone who had let himself go, following his defeat at the hands of Thanos.

And instead of sacking off the gym, Chris donned a fat suit! But, by the looks of it, it was a bit of a struggle for the actor to get in it. In a recently released behind-the-scenes video from Marvel, the 35-year-old can be seen squeezing into the fat suit as two other crew members try to get his arms in the suit.

In the short video, Chris describes being in the fat suit as, "the hottest I've ever been", which he explained weighed around 60-70lbs (4-5 stone). Along with the suit he also had a beard, long-haired wig, and things in his mouth to plump out his cheeks!

Following the release of Avengers: Endgame this year, Chris also starred in Men In Black: International, which was released in June. We caught up with Chris Hemsworth and his co-star Tessa Thompson to talk about the new movie. The pair spoke about the 'moment' they had when they both put on their infamous Men In Black sunglasses, with Tessa admitting, "We both had a moment right?"

They also did some rather hilarious impressions of each other...
