chris

's last marvel movie well the last one i just shot was thor love and thunder and it may be my last i don't know it was a wild and fun and wacky experience as all taika waititi movies are played that character for 10 11 years now and each...
chris hemsworth answers the web s most searched questions wired
time it's been new and exciting and and this this was no exception to that it felt very fresh and it felt like we were trying something we hadn't tried before it was uh in tigers words i think a wacky wild romantic comedy set in space yeah in the last movie would have been endgame where we saw thor in a very disheveled broken sort of emotional state you know physically mentally he wasn't quite himself and he had some work to do so he leaves that film with the guardians of the galaxy and embarks on a journey of self-discovery and that's where we pick this up so what sports does

chris

hemsworth

play i surf a lot um i love i love staying active i like being outdoors i like circuit training kettlebell workouts functional movement i don't love long distance running i love swimming my kids and my wife love horse riding and i do a little bit of that what is

chris

hemsworth

's favorite hobby we just kind of talked about that didn't we i'll say something else you know i've really enjoyed snowboarding lately one of those sports you do more and more obviously you get a little better at and so once a few things clicked into place it gave me the same freedom and fun enjoyment and thrill that surfing gives me but also my kids do it now and they love it and we can ski snowboard down the mountain together and there's not many activities where you get to do side by side with your kids where you all truly love it to the same extent and have the same...
thrill and excitement occurring who is

chris

hemsworth

uh

chris

questions

with any wit and charm who did

chris

hemsworth

play first my first acting gig was um well i got cast as somewhat of an extra on a show called guinevere jones where i was playing king arthur i had a lovely dark red brown wig on period costume and so on and that was cool that was just like whoa i'm on a movie set or a tv set this is what it feels like cause it's my big break my next job was a show called the saddle club i played a young veterinarian nurse and i was 18 or 19 at the time scared out of my mind first job thought this is it this is my shot put a lot of pressure on myself and it was like a deer in the headlights yeah it's that was just a bundle of nerves and anxiety who would

chris

hemsworth

want to play ah these days who would i want to play i don't know i don't know each time it's different you know i think i want to do a drama and then along comes a hilarious comedy and i think okay cool actually that's fun let's go do that and vice versa and so on so i don't know that i have any particular one character that i want to play as such i just want to just want to keep having fun keep enjoying the ride who is

chris

samsworth's favorite actress oh the pressure cape blanchett i worked with on ragnarok he's pretty hard to go by you know being an australian fellow aussie someone...
i've looked up to for many many years and has just been in some of my favorite films played some of the best characters on screen and continues to do it with such grace and integrity and has a wonderful sense of humor and warmth and is kind and supportive she uh she's brilliant who is

chris

hemsworth

's favorite band oh i'd say the tuskegee brothers an australian singer-songwriter folk um bluesy kind of vibe the lead singer has one of the best voices in the music game i think i find the the music is very it has a sort of um the van morrison ray lamontagne nina simone otis reading i don't know there's just a mixture of all these other artists and quite a nostalgia to their music which i find is is enjoyable and calming and i can have it on in the background or i can crank it up at a party either or i fit all of my moods thank you what is

chris

hemsworth

's haircut luca vanello is uh the guy i work with hairdresser on all my movies he makes all the wigs designs them cuts my hair so this is this is this is it this is this is the luca vanilla i've actually stuck with this haircut i think for a while now i look back at when i was on home away this australian tv show i love that experience it's a lot of fun but my haircut was shocking i came in with long hair it was pretty cool and i wanted to cut it and i just had this like i don't even know what it was kind of a mullet kind of a flat fringe i didn't want to put product in it and it was...
just like like bed hair but not cool bed hair it was it was it was pretty brutal what is

chris

hemsworth

's zodiac sign i'm a leo i'm you know interested if someone wants to talk about it to me and and tell me things about it but i haven't used any of the knowledge to my advantage or it hasn't helped me understand myself or anyone else really yet but maybe i haven't explored it enough i don't know what is

chris

hemsworth

's personality i'm fun enthusiastic i think i'm adventurous i don't love sitting still and and the fear of boredom certainly keeps me moving forward and gives me momentum to try and explore new things what is next for

chris

hemsworth

i'm going to have some down time and really enjoy being with my family and being home and being in one place and i feel like i've been unpacking suitcases and packing suitcases and traveling across the world for so many you know years now 10 12 years and it's been incredible and i'm so so thankful for all of it but love to just be still for a while now and inhabit a more simple slower environment i have a movie called spider head coming out which i'm incredibly proud of it's a futuristic thriller set in a state of the art penitentiary where inmates have an opportunity to get reduced sentences by partaking in experiments involving mind altering mood altering drugs what is crucems worth diet i'd like to think you eat a fairly balanced diet i do do eat a lot of...
protein but also have a lot of vegetables i don't eat a huge amount of carbohydrate i think my body responds to lean protein more so and healthy fats and vegetables but like anyone you know i uh i have a sweet tooth i have a real appetite and passion for pizza and burgers and ice cream and all the all the bad things you know but i try to give myself you know sort of an 80 20 rule 80 20 with the you know the good being 80 and 20 being the the cheat meal if you will can

chris

hemsworth

sing no does

chris

hemsworth

like singing loves it love it really enjoy it but going off the response of my family and friends i'd say no definitely not kangaroo sam's gonna do an american accent i'd like to think so yeah i've done some bad ones and i've done some that i'm more proud of and it all depends on you know the prep period you have uh the coach you're working with what part of america it is and you know if that's something you uh you gravitate toward and you know some of it comes easier some of it doesn't that's up for you to decide though so can crew semsworth play guitar i can play a little bit yeah i can't say i play really well but i do enjoy it much like my the singing and guitar i just don't think anyone else enjoys it so it's more of a quiet time kind of mean my own space experience can

chris

hemsworth

do a backflip no my son can my son does them repeatedly until he exhausts himself to the point and then he goes to sleep can...

chris

hemsworth

bench 300 pounds uh no i don't think so i'm not a big bench press guy i like i do a lot of push-ups i'll do dumbbell press but i don't tend to go too heavy just because it kind of tweaks my shoulder and these days you know i i mean for thor love and thunder i think i'm the biggest i ever was and and probably in the best shape i've ever been in that but it was very strategic different exercises um shaping my physique and then also a very specific diet but bench press not a big strength of mine no does

chris

hemsworth

have tattoos i do have tattoos yeah um i have a tattoo here that robert downey jr had someone design which was when we were on the avengers press tour which we all got i have dr zeus tattoo because it was a book i read my daughter a lot when when she was growing up it's one of her favorite books i have the series of little things in my forearms that my daughter actually drew herself tattooed and then a sort of kind of sacred geometry kind of whatever tattoo which you could dig out all sorts of meaning i myself you know it's just a cool little image to me does

chris

hemsworth

have a brother yes i have two brothers luke and liam does

chris

hemsworth

i like playing thor i love playing for played it for many many years and would continue to do so if people wanted me to the

most

challenging part of playing for is reinventing it each time and not having it be predictable for an audience and having it be something...
they've seen before the goal is to continually try something new and keep it fresh and then that is a challenge but part of the fun does

chris

tmas changes accent for thor i try to yeah it's slowly morphed into a version of my accent over the years but initially it was sort of a shakespearean mid-atlantic accent we were going for i still have a feel of that but it's loosened over the years as my interpretation of the character has listened to all right that's it that is all the
