Chris Hemsworth: 'Empire' Magazine's Man of the Year 2012!

Chris Hemsworth lets out a laugh in this new feature for Empire magazine’s latest issue, for which he is named the 2012 Man of the Year!

Here’s what the 29-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On being named Man of the Year:
“It’s pretty funny. It’s very nice and thank you very much, firstly. I was just discussing this – like, what does that mean? Man Of The Year? I’d love to be man of the house but with my wife [Elsa Pataky] and now my daughter [India] I don’t think I’ll ever hold that title! They certainly run the show. But any sort of indication that people like what you’re doing, and which in turn allows me to keep doing it, is a huge plus.”

On his upcoming flick Red Dawn: “We all look about four or five years younger… We’ll be like Benjamin Button! We’ll just get younger as these films come out over the year… It was fun for that reason. There were, like, ten of us off to boot camp and weapons training and military training. We were all out in Detroit for four months and between the ages of 15 and 25.”

On his fame vs. Snow White and the Huntsman co-star Kristen Stewart‘s fame: “Um… I think it’s a different sort of fame. With the utmost respect, Twilight‘s is certainly a teen audience, and there was such um… It’s that sort of, ah, what’s the word? Sort of hysterical kind of fan base, you know? Whereas Avengers is across all ages and people just love the films – all the Marvel films – and it’s a little different from what she experiences.”
