Chris Hemsworth of all human beings thinks there’s something he should change about his body!!!
The Thor actor tells The Telegraph in a recent interview that movie fanatics do not rank his acting talents alongside the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio or Daniel Day Lewis simply because he’s more muscular and more “Hollywood hottie” rather than a talented actor.
“Bodybuilding is seen as vanity, whereas if I put on a bunch of unhealthy weight, or got unhealthily skinny for a role, I’d probably be called a serious actor,” he explains, before adding that portraying Thor is not an easy task. “The training across 10 years of doing it is a full-time job.”
“That and then a 12-hour shooting day—it’s real grind. It’s incredibly rewarding, too—you have to look at it as a professional athlete.” The Marvel star goes on to explain, “there’s an aesthetic that the role requires.” After all, Thor is a literal Norse god. It’s not his fault he’s blessed with packs!
The actor and the rest of the crew have started filming on the fourth installment of the franchise, Thor: Love and Thunder, following a postponement caused by the coronavirus pandemic. He says the nearly five-month delay was for the best, as it gave him more time to prepare for the role.
