Chris Hemsworth Got Too Buff for Thor

This is the summer of the ogled, super-buff superhero, and Chris Hemsworth had to bulk up so much for Thor that his own costume began to choke the life out of him. "They kept saying 'Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can,'" he explained to the L.A. Times. "And then I came back right before Christmas, just before we started the movie, and had a final sort of camera test and put the costume on and within a couple of minutes, my hands started going numb. And everyone was like, 'Yeah, that's not cool.' And I started getting pins and needles and you'd touch the skin and the blood wouldn't return to that area so quick. And I thought, 'OK, it doesn't fit.'" Or maybe they're just making superhero outfits too tight all of a sudden? (Just ask Andrew Garfield's posterior.) [Hero Complex/LAT]
