Liam Hemsworth has revealed that he had sleepless nights before he had to take his shirt off in a scene.
The 26-year-old actor said he “didn’t eat for weeks” before stripping down for a scene in the film The Dressmaker.
“I didn’t eat for weeks. I did some pushups in my trailer,” the Australian hunk said. “Anytime you’re going to come out and take your top off, it’s good to do a couple of push-ups.”
“It’s very difficult to come out and just take your clothes off,” he continued. “There were lots of sleepless nights. It’s very, very difficult to just come out and take your clothes off.”
Liam’s brother Chris Hemsworth is of course the star of Thor and he has no problem taking his shirt off to show his buff bod.
Liam’s co-star Kate Winslet sympathised with the vegan actor, saying: “When I would get to the point [in the scene] where I had to measure his waist, I would actually hear his stomach growling.”
“I would think, ‘Poor darling. Let’s get the scene done.’”
The film’s director, Jocelyn Moorhouse, previously gushed about Liam, insisting he looks “impressive without his clothes on.”
“It was a potentially embarrassing scene for him. But then again, he’s quite impressive without his clothes on so he really had nothing to do worry about,” she said.
“Kate and Judy were having a great time doing as many takes as possible.”
We don’t expect you to look as buff as that brother of yours, Liam, so relax!
