Liam Hemsworth is no stranger to the odd shirtless scene, but the 26-year-old has come clean to E! News about how he prepared for his shirtless bits in front of the camera in The Dressmaker, saying, ‘I didn’t eat for weeks!’

Naturally, the youngest Hemsworth was only kidding, but he did admit to squeezing in some last-minute exercises. ‘I did some push-ups in my trailer,’ he tells. ‘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.’

The Aussie actor also admitted that he ‘ate a lot of chips after that day.’

‘As soon as you get your shirt-off scene done you’re like, “All right, let’s head to McDonald’s or wherever.” I don’t actually eat McDonald’s, but somewhere with burgers and fries!’

Liam may not have had to starve himself for the role, but older brother Chris has before! For his role in 2015 film In the Heart of the Sea, he was at one point eating only 500 calories a day.

Thankfully, both Hemsworth’s are looking better than ever nowadays.
