Luke Hemsworth Just Posted a Shirtless Thirst Trap to Celebrate Getting Ripped
Luke Hemsworth is often overlooked. Ostensibly the “least” famous in the family compared to his two brothers, he hasn’t had any of the the high-profile relationship drama endured by Luke, or the stratospheric popularity that comes with being a Marvel superhero, like Chris. But he does have something many actors would kill for: a starring role in a critically acclaimed, high concept, appointment-viewing HBO drama series.

And most recently, not to be outdone by his brothers’ holiday photos, the Westworld star has dropped a shirtless pic of his own on Instagram. And he’s looking lean as hell.

In the caption for the thirst trap, Luke quotes the entire first verse of the classic song ‘You Can Call Me Al’ by Paul Simon. The lyrics will resonate with many. “Mr Beerbelly, Mr Beerbelly” and “Why am I soft in the middle, now?” are practically the rallying cries of every guy who overindulged during quarantine, while “I need a photo opportunity” lets us know that Luke has been working extra hard on his fitness lately, and it shows.

Luke has been strict on nutrition for a long time. “Anything out of a packet is off-limits,” he told Men’s Health back when the first season of Westworld was airing. “Copyright that: the No Packet Diet. I just prefer fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and fresh protein.”

In the same interview, he revealed that he and his brothers regularly work out together in his home gym, but that things can quickly get pretty competitive. Which probably means we’re due a retaliatory gym pic from Liam or Chris in three… two… one…

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
