Chris Hemsworth to 'Details': 'I've Worked My Ass Off!'

Chris Hemsworth to 'Details': 'I've Worked My Ass Off!'

Chris Hemsworth graces the cover of Details magazine’s November 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old Thor: The Dark World actor shared with the mag:

On working hard in Hollywood:
“(Jokingly) I paid my way in. My family’s in the Mafia. A couple of threats and bunch of cash goes a long way. I’ve worked my ass off over the years, but I can’t help but see that, relatively speaking, it all has been rather quick.”

On not over sharing with directors: “I worked with plenty of directors who are like, ‘Yeah, but what’s in there? Tell me about that time . . .’ And I’m like, ‘Listen, there is something in there, but I ain’t gonna tell you and exploit it.’ I hold that stuff pretty close. We all like the drama of the wildest personalities, but I’m not going to invent something to wallow in just to make me sound interesting.”

On looking back at his career: “There’s a brief payout, and then the bar shifts again. I think that’s human nature. It keeps you moving forward, but it needs to be tempered a bit, too. I’ve been working solidly for a couple of years now, to the point where I have to slow down and spend some time with my family. You spend so long having your hand up, saying, ‘C’mon, c’mon—pick me!,’ there’s a fear of saying no to things. It’s bred into you. I get sh*t sent to me and I think, ‘I should probably just take this.’ But now I try to say, ‘Hold on—do you even like it?’ I do have a little control now. That’s the transition—I’m not at the mercy of someone else so much.”

    He should NEVER be posed this way ever again. Doesn’t fit his personality in the least.

  • GFW

    You nailed James Hunt in RUSH. You did an excellent job in that role. You mad it look easy, and I don’t think it was.

  • Yikes

    Has he had surgery?

  • Lo

    I mean, c’mon. Is this guy gorgeous or what?

  • Cate

    That cover is a disaster.

  • Slate

    I like these photos and I like Chris Hemsworth; he seems like a real pro in interviews.

  • =)

    He’s handsome. For some reason though, I was more into him a little more than a year ago. Back when Thor and Avengers came out. Nowadays, he hasn’t been in anything memorable and I don’t know… I kinda lost interest and he doesn’t appeal as much physically as he did before. I mean, I used to think he was a real-life GOD. But ugh….. I don’t know… maybe it’s the fact that he’s married. Those actors lose appeal big time when they get hitched right when their careers take off! That’s the sad truth.

  • lilyanna

    ‘don’t blame him because he’s beautiful’………he just is ;o)

  • Jane

    He is seriously the most beautiful man on Earth. And Chris is actually pretty talented too. He was really great in “Rush”.

  • Nightwish

    Hes undeniably awe inspiring but this shoot is not right for some reason


    too beautiful for humanity

  • Bells

    Oh my… he’s looking damn fine O_o

  • helenebld

    The hottest man on the planet. Saw him in “Crush” & he blew me away….

  • Shirley

    Definitely exiest man alive. Every mag photo-shoot of him has always being perfect.

  • Linda Tuttle

    I think he is the most handsome man I have seen in years. Maybe since a young Tom Selleck in the Magnum P.I. series. I heard Chris had to go from 215lbs to 170 for Rush so he could fit into the formula one car. I don’t think he has regained his weight. I think he looks better with a little more weight on his frame. I would still never tell him no, not that he would ask me LOL. He was great in Rush, but then, I think he will be great in just about anything he does. That’s my fantasy anyway LOL.

  • Kristen

    He looks way too old for his age…so bad he is not aging well..he used to be a good looking man…

  • Carrie

    @Kristen: agree! now i don’t like Hemsworth brothers :/ maybe only Luke is kind of cute…

  • ac

    @Carrie: You are both either blind or stupid or both. And @Kristen: do we really need your comments on every post here if you obviously don´t like Chris? Just read something else.

  • aquarius64

    He looks great here. As for Thor the Dark World, I wonder if Thor and Jane will have their first night together? And how hot would it be? When you’re the God of Thunder there’s a certain expectation level to be met.

  • Chris

    @ac: go home if you don’t want to see or not being able to accept the bad comments as well!…everyone can say their opinion!

  • Ronnie

    @aquarius64: it would be another movie..Chris and Natalie have no it is going to be just boring…Though I can’t wait to see if Loki is going to kill her or not! I hope he does….she dare to slap both Thor and Loki!!! haha

  • SV

    I can’t understand why some people love to critisize so much (it shows the person’s bad temper more than anything) …yes everyone can write everything but there is a line between spitefulness and opinion.
    I like Chris because of his appearance and the easy going atitude he shows in interviews. I want to know more about him and that’s why I read everything I can find about him. If I don’t like someone I just don’t read about him … Anything outside mere curiosity about celebrities is not healthy according to me.
