Chris Hemsworth on his chemistry w/ Tom Hiddleston: ‘We’d just be giggling’

Chris Hemsworth

Good news, everyone! 2012 is officially the year of the Hemsworth! Chris Hemsworth to be specific. Liam, well, he’s yet to prove himself as a box-office draw (on his own, not as the third wheel of a franchise), and Luke is still gently toeing his way into Hollywood waters. But Chris? He’s so in to stay and is actually the reason that a lot of people have headed towards the theater this year. GQ Australia already named him their Man of the Year, and now Empire magazine has done so as well. As a result, we’ve received a hot and playful new photoshoot of Chris and an in-depth interview as well. Did you know that he loves to sexily giggle with Tom Hiddleston on set? I love that mental image, and I totally believe it. Here are some excerpts:

Chris Hemsworth

On Thor 2: “There’s a lot more of an organic feel to Asgard now. And that Viking element of the Asgardian people, of Thor’s history, is much more present. It’s less science-fiction. I mean, if you look at ‘Game of Thrones,’ what I love about it is that it has that mythical element but you’re always so grounded in the organic world. I think that’s the goal second time round”

His chemistry with Tom Hiddleston: “It was kind of perfect, the way he and I were at very similar points in our career. We’d done bits and pieces but nothing that had ut us on a platform like this was about to. We were both as excited about the whole process and had the same sort of passion for films and these types of stories. We’d just be giggling: ‘We were just on set with Sir Anthony Hopkins, can you believe this? And Kenneth Branagh directing! How the hell did we get here?’ And on The Avengers it was the same thing: ‘Oh my God, that’s Robert Downey and Sam Jackson!’ Some of the stuff I look most forward to are my scenes with Tom. We’ve had a hell of a lot of fun.”

His overwhelming success is weird: “It is strange because you almost forget that this just doesn’t happen that often. I was talking to Matt Damon and he goes to me, ‘So Snow White did pretty good?’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I think it’ll probably hit $400 [million], but it’s not Avengers numbers.’ And he goes ‘Man!’ and he shook his head. ‘You’re f***ing ruined — 400′s huge!’ It’s like my brain thinks, ‘That’s the norm now, that’s the benchmark.’ Which, Jesus, I don’t think anything will ever come close. It’s almost as if I’ve been ruined for the rest of my career regarding box-office expectations.”

On being ‘Man of the Year’: “It’s pretty funny. It’s very nice and thank you very much, firstly. I was just discussing this — like, what does that mean? Man of the Year? I’d love to be man of the house but with my wife and now my daughter I don’t think I’ll ever hold that title! They certainly run the show. But any sort of indication that people like what you’re doing, and which in turn allows me to keep doing it, is a huge plus.”

Why the rush of Australian actors succeeding in Hollywood? “I could throw out a bunch of maybes. A producer once said to me once, “America really relates to that Western, cowboy culture because it was their history and Australians still have some of that.’ I don’t want to say something that would be offensive to other bountries like, ‘Ah, it’s because we’re more manly…’ But I’m sure there is some cultural… swagger.”

His thoughts on KStew’s fans being interested in her on a personal level: “I am, in my everyday life, most of the time, not looking like Thor. Whereas her character she played in Twilight and her walking down the street, they’re pretty similar — they’re both human and relatable. I think for that reason, yeah, it’s when the character is even more relatable and closer to who you are in your everyday life, the line gets blurred.”

Yeah, I don’t know if Chris really knows what he’s talking about when it comes to the controversy that surrounds Kristen Stewart. I think he’s actually just being diplomatic, or maybe he’s not aware enough to realize that KStew’s crummy attitude weighs in heavily on how people feel about her. Otherwise, it’s a pretty great interview. Chris isn’t the brightest bulb out there, but he seems genuinely grateful for his own success.

    so pretty, I would hit that daily, hell hourly..

    and all I could think when reading the line about Kristen is “I know he’s not callin her virginal” haha, that’s bad..

  2. j.eyre says:

    I am really liking this guy. Although I think he is nice eye-candy, he is not on the Hit List. However, I would love to go grab a beer with him – I think it would be fun to hang out with him. And should he invite his chum Tom along, well, must be hospitable, right?

  3. Sweet Dee says:

    Oh my goodness yes. Giggling leads to touching, touching leads to kissing, leads to groping…then shirts are off mmmmmhmmm…

    On a less dirty note I could use a bigger version of that last photo for mancandy wallpaper.

  4. V4Real says:

    I love this man and I can just hear that Aussie accent in my head when he said “other bountries”. Swoon.

    He’s hot and I would hit that in the worse way after I wiped the stinch of Elsa Patacky off him.

    A Hemeston sandwich wouldn’t be bad either; they are both so yummy.

  5. Marty says:

    I think he was trying to be diplomatic when talking about K-Stew. It would be awkward for both of the if he dissed her in any form and they had to do a sequel together.

    Also, can I ask for people’s opinion here?

    Why do people think he’s dumb? I mean he doesn’t come off as overly intelligent or anything but I also don’t get the “not the brightest bulb” vibe either. To me, he just comes off as a ‘go with the flow kind’ of guy. Am I just not seeing it correctly?

    On the other hand if his choice in wives is any indication of his intelligence, then Bedhead is on the right track.

      I agree about the Kristen Stewart comment. I think he was trying to be neutral since Bipsy just signed on to the sequel (prequel?). Either that or he doesn’t care.

      And to the point of his not caring – I don’t know about the dumb comments. I hear them when his name is mentioned frequently and took it for granted but no, I have never really read anything that made me think he was dumb. I don’t think he goes very deep in interviews but I like that about him – well, that and his naked chest. I wonder if he doesn’t care that people perceive him as dumb as long as they go to see him onscreen. I don’t know but I, personally, would prefer to think of him as laid back than dumb.

  6. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Gah! He’s so gorgeous!

  7. This is my man, I was just talking to a friend who is all about Liam and I was like – no girl, Chris 100%!
    He’s like if you found out Brad Pitt has a younger, cuter brother – BAM, there he is! lol

  8. Talie says:

    I think him and his brother still have some drama in them… I don’t buy that Miley and Elsa are the end of the road so early on.

  9. Ms Kay says:

    I can’t help but LOL at the last pic, him trying to get that deep pondering look…

    Gosh it feels like yesterday when I was watching him on Channel 5 in the Oz soap opera Home and Away, he was playing that young chap Kim dating nurse Rachel older than him.

    Ah well Chris, MAH hubby Hiddleston told me a lot about you, so I’m looking forward to meet you soon brother in law ;-)

  10. oklady says:

    Him, me, and Hiddleston in a giggle sammich! So hot

  11. rightgrrl says:

    I love their bro-mance! And both of them make my top 5…Hiddles being #1 of course. He’s pretty perfect.

  12. Lindsey says:

    I think there should be some sort of play featuring Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth (and oh, RDJ for good measure) sitting around laughing it up. I would pay money to see that.


  13. Jenna says:

    Mmm…Hey Thor, hey!

    Also I thought that said ‘Father of Kink’. I’ll still take him. It’s all good.

  14. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    He’s such a hottie. But I wish he didn’t have to have long hair. I miss his old look from back in his Home and Away days :D .

  15. serena says:

    Aw I like him so much! Didn’t know his older brother (?) was also scooping his way in Hollywood.

  16. Alicia says:

    I wish I could clone him and give all the girls her own Chris, that shit needs to be shared cause i way freaking super extra hot :D miauuuuuuuuu!!!!

  17. pinns says:
