Chris Hemsworth Covers 'Esquire' September 2013

Chris Hemsworth is a dapper dude on the cover of Esquire magazine’s September 2013 issue.

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

On playing Thor: “You talk to the comic-book fans, people who’ve been there since the beginning—you know, since the sixties—and you realize the religious significance of this thing. And there is a kind of work that follows. You do your research. You listen and learn what you can. But then you let go. Eventually you’re down to it. You gotta make this guy your own.”

On his physique: “Thor is large, for that I had to add some muscle, which hasn’t been all that hard so far. I like training just fine, thanks. But to play a Formula One driver, I had to drop quite a bit of that. You know, slim it down. First time I looked at a Formula One car in person, I just stared at the cockpit, figuring I’d never get in there. The drivers wear the whole car like a tight-fitting suit. So I just started training differently, shedding all that Thor. I’ve come to see size as just a kind of prop.”

On racing: “I grew up in a culture of motorbike. So I like racing just fine. Quite a lot, actually. That was when I was a boy in Australia. And I never really made the jump to cars after that.”
