Not only does Thor star Chris Hemsworth rock the May cover of Men’s Health, he also sits down with the mag and dishes on bulking up to play the superhero. And, he also throws out the names of his own superheroes. We’ve got the the highlights from the Chris Hemsworth Men’s Health interview below!
ON HIS ROLE MODELS:
“Anthony Hopkins. His whole approach to this business, his work ethic and attitude on set was inspiring, however many films down the track he still has that and he still is excited to be there and treats everyone as equals and everything he does, he is an impressive person. I love Paul Giamatti, Johnny Depp, Al Pacino and Matt Damon, ya know, I could go on and on.”
ON FEARLESSY SEARCHING CAVES IN AUSTRALIA AS A KID:
“We built wooden swords and hammered nails into them, and we checked out the cave. My friends and I were convinced we’d meet some ghosts and devils.”
ON WHY HE LOVES BEING AN ACTOR:
“I always loved film, but never thought about it as a career choice. I had a different idea of what I wanted to do professionally every week. You know, I was a lawyer one week, a doctor, a sportsman in some way, and then I found out I can pretend to do all those things in acting.”
It sure as heck helps that he’s hotter than hot to boot!
