Chris Hemsworth ... or Tom Hanks from 'Cast Away'?

11/23/2015 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-chris-hemsworth-instagramAnswer: Hemsworth ... after he dropped major lbs for his starring role in Ron Howard's upcoming "In the Heart of the Sea."

Hemsworth plays a sailor stranded at sea in the Moby Dick-inspired flick, so he obviously got way into character. He posted the throwback pic from the set saying he wouldn't recommend the diet to anyone.

Hard to believe that's the same guy who plays Thor, but the good news is Chris is back to his standard beefy bod since filming.

9/6/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0906-rob-kardashian-instagram-01Rob Kardashian not only looks like he's lost a lot of weight, there's a not-so-subtle message he seems to be telegraphing.

Rob posted this Saturday, presumably at a restaurant where he was eating a salad.  


The phantom Kardashian has resurfaced this week after a long absence, and it's clear he's ready to show the progress he's made in the weight department.  Rob's been working with trainer Gunnar Peterson, with the goal of losing 100 lbs.

The drink on the table's interesting ... could be an ice tea, but maybe a red bull and vodka or a margarita.  Door number 1 would be the wisest choice.

Good luck Rob.

5/22/2015 12:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If Kenan Thompson ever wants to host a late night show, Reverend Al Sharpton says he better drop some major poundage because nobody wants to fall asleep to a puffy porker.

It's a strange response from Al -- who was once 305 lbs. himself, but now thinks Kenan is so big ... just seeing him gives people the munchies.

Ooooh-weeee ... what up with that, Al? Check it out.

Mama June I Can't Stomach My Stomach ... I'm Getting a Lap-Band

5/17/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0515-mama-june-lap-band-getty-01Mama June is joining a band ... in her lap.

The 'Honey Boo Boo' matriarch is so inspired by her recent 45 lb. weight loss, she's gunning to lose another 50, with the help of the Lap-Band.

We did the math ... she currently weighs in at 276 lbs., and if she achieves her gastric goal she'll go down to a svelte 226. 

June made the decision to go under the knife because she's plateaued with her trainer and her relatively healthy diet.  

She'll have the surgery this summer, which means she'll just miss bikini season.

French Montana Weight LossFrench Montana admits he packed on a few lbs while he was dating Khloe Kardashian ... but now that they're history, he's transformed his oversized gut into rock-hard abs.

French saw Khloe turn into a fitness machine after their breakup in early September, and he followed suit ... hitting the weights with producer Mally Mall at CrossFit in Sherman Oaks.

We're told Khloe's appearance in workout videos and her obvious weight loss the last couple months has been French's inspiration.

Another motivation ... French also has a new album set to drop in December.

Rob Kardashian, your move.
