Chris Hemsworth had to lose 30 lbs. for In the Heart of the Sea, gain 50 lbs. for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and transform his body again for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, this time dropping 20 lbs. of his Thor muscle.

Hemsworth, 32, transformed for his latest role with the help of his live-in trainer and nutritionist Luke Zocchi, who put him on a regimen that involved more cardio and cleaner eating.

The latest issue of Men’s Health details the actor’s slim-down exercise program, which includes shadow-boxing while attached to high-resistance bungees, bear crawls and knee raises.

He also loves to surf in his native Australia with his brothers, Liam and Luke, and his father.

“Sitting on our boards out in the ocean beyond where the waves break waiting for the next set, you can forget about everything,” he told the magazine. “It’s a great place to talk and have a laugh.”

According to the mag, his go-to meal when he’s trying to drop the pounds is grilled ahi tuna with a kiwi­ mango salsa and a salad, and he even created his own low-calorie cocktail: vodka, soda, a splash of coconut water and a squeeze of lime.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
