Chris Hemsworth may play a Norse god in Marvel films, but like the rest of us mere mortals, he wants to age well.
That was one reason he signed up to undergo a batch of intense challenges designed by experts to push him mentally and physically and unlock some “anti-aging superpowers” in the engrossing and wince-inducing six-part series, Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, about how “to live better for longer.” Here are some of Hemsworth’s toughest tests.
Learning to manage fear and panic, Hemsworth walked along a narrow crane arm with no railings, atop a 900-foot-tall Sydney skyscraper.
Risking hypothermia, he swam and surfed in Norway’s frigid Arctic waters to face ultimate exposure to extreme temps believed to trigger the body’s defense against killer diseases.
While prepping for last summer’s Thor: Love and Thunder, the star made a grueling 100-foot climb on a rope dangling from a cable car in Australia’s Blue Mountains!
