What happened to my Thor? Waaaaa (as in my, claiming ownership LOL)
Anyway, Chris Hemsworth shed about 60 lbs for his new role as F1 racer James Hunt. The actor reportedly weighed 235 lbs when he played the character of the Norse god, Thor, for the superhero movie, “Marvel’s The Avengers”. But for the film, he is sporting a much leaner physique at 175 lbs.
Rush, which will be due in theaters in September 2013, is directed by Oscar-winning director Ron Howard. The film revolves around the rivalry of two F1 drivers who lived in the 70s and is based on a true story. Hemsworth was the top choice to play the British racing legend James Hunt because he has the same height at 6’3″ and also blonde. But his bulky frame was the problem so Hemsworth went on a diet in order to lose the weight and get into the narrow confines of a race car.
Wow! That is inspiring for me. If Chris Hemsworth can do it, I can do it, too. After I will give birth, I will start losing weight already. I will try to get back to the pre-pregnancy weight I had before my first born. weeeeeee
G.P. — Losing weight would be the tune I would be dancing on in a few months. I will strive to lose weight through exercise and diet. These have to go together. One doesn’t work. I will engage music in every aspect so that I will be happy in the process of losing weight, so I guess I will have to do a lot of dancing with that. I do not have to necessarily do the guitar playing in order to need a rivera rock crusher at guitar center, I will just turn on the player and dance to the rhythm.
I just learned that the official HD trailer of the Superman reboot, Man of Steel, is already out because my husband posted it on his Facebook wall. Yeah, he can’t wait, so he says. So I guess, we will be hitting the big screen come June 2013 when it opens in our local theaters. hihihi
I really like to humor my hubby and I am feeding his addiction by buying him Superman T-shirts whenever they are on sale and whenever I find a nice design. Believe me, there are many designs to Superman shirts–especially if you look hard.
Anyway, if you are one who can’t wait either, well, here is the much-awaited trailer of the Man of Steel. It stars Henry Calvill.
Since this is going to be a big event in theaters worldwide, cinema owners should really prepare their stanchions and ropes as well as increase their number of security personnel because for sure, swarms of people will go to the theaters.
By the way, Happy 12-12-12! It is the 12th day, of the 12th month, of the year 2012! weeee Nothing, it is just that a lot of people are finding this day very exciting.
