Chris Hemsworth Talks Thor with 'Interview' Magazine

Chris Hemsworth looks off to the side in this new shot from Interview magazine’s May 2011 issue, featuring cover girl Michelle Williams.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Thor actor had to share:

On getting to see an almost finished version of the film: “They don’t even let us see it until the last minute. I just recently saw a close-to-finished version of Thor. I was impressed. It is often difficult to watch yourself onscreen, especially 60-feet high. As an actor, it is an uncomfortable experience. But this is one of the first times I was able to get lost in it as an audience member. There were so many impressive elements – from the special effects to the story to the individual characters. I really had a great time.”

On being a fan of action films as a kid: “I loved the stuff. As a kid, I loved any fantasy. I grew up in a household with two brothers and we lived in the bush. We were constantly building weapons and forts and things. But I didn’t set out to be an action hero.”

On Thor’s hammer: “It is a pretty impressive piece of equipment. It was quite heavy, so that helped with the stunts. If it was too light, you would swing it around like a toothpick and it wouldn’t look impressive. When there is some weight to it and you have to physically use your shoulder and back, it gives you a sense of power. I got very comfortable holding it. When I did the earthbound scenes without it, I felt naked.”

FYI: Chris is wearing a D&Y super soft-slouch beanie.

    Chris Hemsworth is so lucky to have such a sexy, curvaceous and sensual woman, his ultra-gorgeous wife, Elsa Pataky, be a cougar for him. I don’t understand why he doesn’t even acknowledge she exists in his interviews.
