Limitless with Chris Hemsworth is a documentary production that will show another way how we can live better and longer: regenerating, maximizing strength, building immunity, shocking the body, strengthening memory and confronting mortality.
For the needs of the program, the actor was aged in the photos, and he was also dressed in a special suit. He spoke a bit more about this in an interview with Vanity Fair. He admitted that adding 50 more years to him was not a reason to be happy. In his series on Disney+, the 39-year-old explores the aging process with doctors, scientists and engages in all sorts of challenges to stimulate and prolong his life as long as possible.
In episode four, the actor wears a special suit designed to mimic the wear and tear of old age. Even trained Hemsworth he had difficulty performing many activities, which led to some interesting conclusions.
I told Darren [Aronofsky’ego]”Look, should I act like I’m dying in this situation?” And he said, “No,” and I was glad, because that would have been a bit hackneyed and weird. He’ll add, “If you think it’s fun then find fun in it and go for it, but we want to see your real reaction to it.” And yes, some moments surprised me and some were funny, funny and absurd – such is life.
As part of this idea, the production created several images in which the actor was aged using digital effects. See for yourself:
