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.”

What he means is that the Twilight movies suck and Avengers doesn’t; the Twilight movies are only liked by crazy teen girls that have no taste whatsoever and everyone likes Avengers…cause people can actually act in it.

”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?”
RESPECT.

# 4

He meant the twilight films suck and twilight fans are scary. And he couldn’t be more right

# 5

Hot f|ucker.

# 6

He was trying to be diplomatic, but I think everyone has pieced together his thoughts on Twilight. Avengers All The Way!

# 7

His fame vs. Kristen Stewart’s fame? Who asks a question like that? It’s like they were trying to make him say something that would get him in trouble.

Un like Chris Evans i like Chris Hemsworth!

# 9

He is so sexy.

Couldn’t help but LOL @ his last response, such a sweet cutie. I’ve seen the old version of Red Dawn, hope this remake is better than the old.

I just realized this (yes Im late) but he is veery attractive.
Also in so many ways he shaded the hell out of Twilight and the fan base.

This man should be illegal….He is so gosh dang hot my ovaries explode every time I see him…

I love a man with beefy thighs/legs. He is scrumptious.

so perfect man , i love him so much & i agree with him about twilight!! the film suck & so does kirsten & rob they r so pathetic! i love all chris’s movies he is so talented

Chris Hemsworth is charming, smart (Since he handled that KStew question well) and all haters can go straight to the left!

He is a smart man, gorgeous!
I guess his wife, is just a small mistake….we all do them anyway….

I don’t normally go for blond hair/blue eyes (at least not when someone has both), but DAMN! He is GORGEOUS!!!

I watched him in Thor (haven’t seen The Avengers yet) and this guy has the potential to be another Clint Eastwood type (acting into old age) because he’s definitely has the screen presence and charm.
