My brother Chris (Hemsworth, the big-screen’s Thor) texted me about a month before shooting and said, “Remember, it’s called Hunger Games, not Eating Games.” I lost quite a bit of weight for the role. My character lives in (the dystopian, impoverished) District 12 in the film, which is basically like living in the Depression. He’s hunting for his food everyday and trying to provide for himself and his family. He’s not eating a lot. He doesn’t have a lot of money to buy food. I wanted to get a good sense of what it’s like to be hungry. I was training five or six days a week, and eating a lot less. When we started shooting, I wasn’t training as much, but I was eating only very minimally.
I was training with an ex- Navy SEAL. He kept me in the gym every day for an hour or so and he would just completely destroy me. It was very high-intensity. I’d work out for an hour and have to lay down for 20 minutes or half an hour before I’d drive anywhere because I’d pass out.
[My personal trainer would] get me to lift various things or take me out to the car park and we’d get a sled kind of thing and he’d load it up with weights and I’d have to push it for 50 meters and then run 50 meters and then pick up two-deep kettle bells and walk those 50 meters. It was just about destroying me for an hour everyday.
