Chris Hemsworth’s GQ photo shoot is beefcake-y, hot: would you hit it?

I have to admit, I’ve never really been into the Hemsworth boys. I like beefcake, don’t get me wrong, but I need beefcake-plus to get me hot. Like, beefcake-plus-funny, or beefcake-plus-talent. And I’ve just never seen much of the “plus” from the Hemsworth boys. But I’m still open to them, and I’ll keep watching. Chris Hemsworth is profiled in the new issue of GQ (the one with Kate Upton’s rack), and it’s basically like “p0rn for women” if you get off on tight denim and giant, muscular arms. Which, admittedly, is pretty hot. Go here to see GQ’s slideshow (trust me, it’s worth it), and here are some highlights from the short piece:

Chris Hemsworth on his physical appearance helping his career: “[My body image has] helped me get a job, sure. But you hope it’s not the only thing that helped.”

On his Huntsman character: “A lost soul and a drunk.”

Before shooting his “drunk” scenes in SWATH, he would twirl: “It really shakes everything up, and you feel a bit more alive,” he says. “I actually started spinning in circles before the scenes where I didn’t need to be drunk.”

He’s witnessed stranger rituals: “I worked with a guy once who would chant, I’m beautiful and I have a secret, I’m beautiful and I have a secret.”

Yeah, he’s not going to light the world on fire with his superior conversation skills. But he seems like a decent enough dude, and… THOSE ARMS. I could write poetry about his arms. I have to ignore the caveman face (yeah, I said it) and just focus on his body.

I’m also including some photos of Chris with his two girls, Elsa Pataky and daughter India Rose.

    Take the Bud out of his hand and I totally would. And yes – those ARMS. Mmmmm.

  2. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I have no idea who he is but YES! This guy is STUPID hot.

  3. Tiffany27 says:

    Meh. I prefer Chris Evans beefcake……. Gonorrhea and all.

  4. Rhea says:

    I still prefer Harrison Ford in his younger days (as Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Linus Larrabee, etc) more than any actor today. I just couldn’t find someone else with his charm in the movies. -_-

  5. CG says:

    I would SO TOTALLY hit that! Dayum! But I srsly hope that his coworker who’s “beautiful with a secret” isn’t Tom Hiddleston. That would just destroy my Hiddles love!

    • Dany says:

      Nah! Tom and Chris have a real life bromance going on. And Tom wouldn’t say something stupid like that, and even IF he did, Chris wouldn’t be the one sharing that with the world. They’ll start filming Thor 2 soon, would make things awkward, no? Maybe it was Charlize??? Hahahaha, probably not. Probably someone from his Aussie soap opera days!

  6. Chatcat says:

    I am blushing to admit this (and it takes alot to make me blush) but the answer is YES and yet he is the ultimate taboo for me at many levels.
    He is obviously good looking and the bod is sooooo fit, but I see his pictures, or some of his TV interviews, and I think he has a whole lot more sexy going on then just the outside package that just draws me to him.

    So again, if Chris wanted to share his Budweiser with me I’d be sipping quicker than a it takes to reach for the bottle opener!

  7. Waldemar says:

    “Only the greatest country in the world could turn underwear into the national uniform. Nothing says red-blooded American male like a T-shirt…”

    That made me laugh. Especially when you read that that TShirt he is wearing is from Armani. Soooo American indeed.

    Chris looks fine, didn’t know he was a dad. My best friend is going to be depressed about that.

  8. gee says:

    Daily, nightly, and ever so rightly.

  9. dorothy#1 says:

    YES, YES, YES a thousand times YES!!!!

  10. Esmom says:

    I have a blind spot regarding the Hemsworth boys for some reason. They seem so bland…not a lot of charm, charisma or substance, other than in Chris’s arms. Meh.

    The “I’m beautiful and have a secret” thing is hysterical, however. I gotta believe it’s a woman…I can’t imagine a guy calling himself beautiful.

    Also, is he really holding a baby? It looks so inert and small, like a loaf of bread.

    • DreamyK says:

      Not doing it for me either.

      He and his brother have some kind of weird neanderthal look about them. Sorry! I also think Brad Pitt, at times, has sort of a monkey face.

      It reminds me of the Jerry Seinfeld episode called “The Strike”: Jerry’s girlfriend, Gwen, looks either ugly or beautiful depending on what type of light she is in.


  11. Stubbylove says:

    The Playgirl pose with the Bud is a classic.

  12. Julia says:

    He is overrated and overvalued. NEXT.

  13. lisa2 says:

    He is good looking man. But all his shoots are looking the same. I think photographers have just one way to shoot him.

  14. serena says:

    Of course I’ll hit that. How hot. Strangely enough the younger brother does nothing for me.

  15. ZigZagZoey says:

    I guess I’m just way too picky. I don’t think either of the brothers are that good looking at all. You gotta have more than just big muscles imo.

  16. Jessica says:

    Oh (SWOON) I love a man who drinks beer.. I love the smell of beer on a dirty, sweaty man… mamma like!

  17. mwa says:

    Yuk he is ugly. Eww something about that face BARFP

  18. DeltaJuliet says:

    My SIL is SO in love with him. I gotta admit, I think he’s pretty damn hot too. I wouldn’t mind being picked up in those arms…..

  19. LadyLupton says:

    In just about every picture in that shoot he looks like he’s making thenoise Scooby-Doo makes when he’s confused. But yes, I’d still hit it.

  20. Vee says:

    Every which way YES! I adore him!

  21. Dahlia Verlaine says:

    Ugh…NO!!! He reminds me of Fabio and I sure don’t wanna hit that!

  22. Dinah says:

    Maybe- with a bag over his head.

  23. Sachi says:

    I don’t think he’s that hot. Those arms, though… :D

    But I do love reading his interviews and seeing him on TV shows. He’s very funny and witty and he seems like a decent, stand-up guy, and to me that makes a man very attractive.

  24. Jenna says:

    My BABY!!!! :D

    I’d hit that from the front, back, sideways, up, down, night and day!!!! UNF!!! Love that man!!!

  25. Ming says:


    All this buffed beef. All this beef. All the spam. Meat. Meat counter.

    All I want is a tomatoe.
    A tomatoe like Bob Odenkirk…or something.

  26. ramona says:

    That first photo is particularly yuck, but there is just something about a great big man holding a teeny-tiny baby that does it for me…

  27. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    They should have added him to the Magic Mike lineup. Im all for him playing Grey in 50 Shades.

  28. Riana says:

    Oh my god if that’s him holding his daughter then I’m dead, DONE.

    A big muscly man holding an itty bitty baby gets me EVERYTIME.

    Soooo cute! Ugh, I need a fan or some air-conditioning.

  29. Another Nina says:

    He is witty, not talkative and seemingly unpretentious. That counts as a huge plus on my books. So, huge Yes! But every time I see his pictures, I feel sad about Heath, again and again. Do they resemble each other or is it just Australian thing?
    Oh and I’d love to see his dynamic with other brothers. Do they bully baby Liam?

  30. Chi says:

    Holy crap, their bundled up baby looks super tiny in his hands! Though I do have to agree about the unfortunate photo shoot :(

  31. Happy21 says:

    Oh ya I’d hit it and come back for seconds ;)

    (and thirds, fourths and on it goes until someone better comes along)

  32. Anne de Vries says:

    Hell yes. He seems funny, stable and has a great smile.

  33. jesstar says:

    I’d hit it till it hurt.

  34. I think the media has led the public to express very low thoughts and opinions. The word Hot, Beefcake-y and questions “would you hit it,” in reference to a man who looks to be a very nice man who loves his family. Why do you continue to objectify both men and women with base animalistic thoughts and references. It would be very nice if we humans could regain our civility and ethics that we dropped sometime in the 90′s to wallow around in pens with the pigs.

  35. megan says:

    Would I hit it?? Yes. Everyday. Up and down the street. I would really like it if he could be dressed in his Thor get up, but if not I’ll stll take it. Yes please lol.

    Also the pics with his girls are ADORABLE. I haven’t seen the babys face yet but I’m sure its just angelic. Elsa is stunning, and I think most of us can agree Chris is a fine specimen too.

    Did someone say something about Liam being hotter? ICK lol. He isn’t bad but poor guys isn’t nearly to his brothers level. Plus he is marrying Miley Cyrus lol IDK how sound his mind is!

  36. hatsumomo says:

    Im willing to bet a dollar it was Hemsworth’s forearms were ‘shopped onto this pic of Rob Pattison to make him look more manly.

  37. Samigirl says:

    I wasn’t attracted to him until I saw him on Conan talking about his daughter. I kind of swooned. Nothing hotter than a man who is in love with his baby!

  38. Dani says:

    Would I hit it? I’D DESTROY IT.

  39. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    He seems like a decent enough guy, although I don’t think he’s that talented. The worst thing I can say about him, is he had lousy taste in picking a wife.

  40. Jovia says:

    “I worked with a guy once who would chant, I’m beautiful and I have a secret, I’m beautiful and I have a secret.”

    This ^^^ cracked me up. I wonder who that guy was?

  41. Embee says:

    God, no. He looks exactly like my psycho ex. W similarities, big ol’ arms, weird snub nose…all of it.

  42. Just U says:

    I’d hit it every day and twice on Sundays. He could hunt in my woods anytime.
    I have had a thing for him for a loooong time now, since he was in Home and Away (rubbish Aussie soap that is shown over here in Ireland). That was my guilty pleasure for years. I stopped watching when he left, hahaha!!!

  43. bianca says:

    Would I hit it?? THat headline is hilarious. That is not the question…the question is HOW MANY TIMES AND WAYS would I hit it. Lord…the man has sooo many different looks and it keeps his fans going. PLUS..he’s sooo humble and head over heels inlove with his two ladies in his life. ..and THAT is very very sexy;)

  44. dj says:

    Is no one remembering he is an Aussie? Add the Aussie accent and done! Hittable.

  45. NYC_girl says:

    The way he’s walking down the street holding his baby like a loaf of bread makes me nervous. Doesn’t seem very secure. What if he stumbles? I’m having anxiety just looking at him.

  46. kells-bells says:

    “Would I hit it? ” Is the Pope catholic?

  47. ema82m says:

    WTF is his wife wearing!?!?!?!!

  48. Snow says:

    You didn’t see a plus? Didn’t you see him on Conan? He was hilarious and goofy.

  49. kskiska says:

    God, no. Look up ‘neanderthal’ and there’s a picture of this mug along with his brother.

  50. Jaxx says:

    Hot if you like the doofus caveman look. It’s like they purposely made him look bad.

    Now the one holding his daughter? Yum, yum. Does he have half of the baby tucked under his armpit?

  51. Kay says:

    I had the pleasure of seeing him in person on Live with Kelly during the Snow White promo tour, shook his hand as he walked by. Looked into those baby blues and I was a convert. Not normally into beefcaake, either. He’s SOO tall and broad-shouldered, killed me. This interview with Kristen Stewart during their Australia bit is hilarious. Does an impression of his daughter trying to get out of her swaddles. Love Kristen’s giggle and how she joins in, too. She was great in all of these junket interviews:

  52. shaboo says:

    those gq photos of him are awful, especially the first. His face is so bland.

  53. Nina says:

    Admittedly, the first pic is a bit neanderthal… but he’s smokin’ hot! Looks a little like Colin Farrell. Now there’s a guy that can get my heart rate up!! Also, how cute are Chris and Elsa? They probably make GORGEOUS babies!!

  54. The Totz says:

    I just looked at all his pics and to me he looks a little heath ledger ish in the face

  55. Tommy says:

    I’ll take this delicious slab of beef over Fassdong any day.

  56. Gelina says:

    If he was not married…yes!

  57. Skarlett says:

    Hemsworth is ugly!
    these pictures solid Photoshop! His small eyes!
    I do not like
    it’s not sexy
    Looks old and older than their age
