Chris Hemsworth, is that you?

The Australian actor recently posted an Instagram photo of himself shirtless, but he was nearly unrecognizable.

Turns out Hemsworth underwent quite the physical transformation for his role in “In the Heart of the Sea.”

“Just tried a new diet/training program called ‘Lost At Sea,’” the actor wrote. “Wouldn’t recommend it.”

We wouldn’t even consider such a thing so close to the holidays.

The former “Sexiest Man Alive,” told Entertainment Tonight that he cut serious calories to drop weight for the role.

"We have to shoot the really skinny stuff where we drop down to 500, 600, 700 calories a day, a good three or four weeks and it's going to be pretty uncomfortable, but we'll be together in our misery," Hemsworth said. "I spend more time thinking about food than anything else at the moment."

Hemsworth plays Owen Chase in “In the Heart of the Sea,” which premieres Dec. 11.

The movie, directed by Ron Howard, is about the crew of a whaling ship that gets stranded at sea for 90 days.

Hence the scrawny physique in Hemsworth’s photo.
