Chris Hemsworth finally cut his hair for ‘Cyber’: would you still hit it?

Here are some new photos of Chris Hemsworth over the weekend. I know many of you enjoy the Hemsworth boys, Chris in particular. I’m at a loss for the most part though, which is why my coverage of him is hit-or-miss. I don’t think he looks particularly good or swoon-worthy in these pics, although I wish I had some better angles on his hair. Did he chop off his long Thor-locks? That looks like a haircut to me, and if it is… good for him. I was tired of his ponytail.

Obviously, Chris has a great body. His muscular, well-developed legs deserve special attention, mostly because when dudes actually go out and try to bulk up and get all muscular and bulgy, many of them don’t work on their legs. Chris does. But other than that, he looks less bulky than usual in these pics. Maybe it’s just the t-shirt. Or maybe he’s not training as hard these days and he’s lost some muscle weight. He’s currently working on Cyber, directed by Michael Mann, which is all about the Chinese and Americans working together to defeat a major hacker. So… maybe Chris doesn’t have to walk around shirtless the whole time, thus he isn’t training as much.

As I mentioned on Friday in that Elsa Pataky post, Chris is filming projects back-to-back at this point. At some point over the past two years, Chris became one of the most in-demand actors in the world, much to my surprise. After he completes Cyber, he’s got The Avengers 2, the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman and a Ron Howard period film called In the Heart of the Sea. Chris is so in-demand that he’s turning down major films because his schedule is so jam-packed. How did this happen?!

Thor: The Dark World comes out in November, just FYI. Do you want the trailer again? You are welcome.

    I am not usually into muscular guys…but he REALLY does it for me. Yummy.

  2. Mia says:

    I’m the same when it comes to Chris. I ‘should’ like him, i can see why others swoon over him, but he just doesn’t do much for me. I think he looks older than his age too.

  3. Anna says:

    Is this rhetorical? Because A MILLION TIMES YES. Shorter hair makes it even better. Bonus points will be awarded for future scruff. I like him as a real-life huntsman.

  4. Anna says:

    To add: I think Chris/his team have done a good job managing his career so far, plus I think he has an innate charisma that makes him watchable and cast-able. That’s what separates his current industry standing from, lets say, Chris Evans, who had a similar pre-stardom trajectory but hasnt been able to really break out. I do think Chris needs to diversify his roles a bit, and the way to go is comedy (I think he had great timing in Thor & Avengers), not drama (sadly, I think he lacks the range). Maybe do something self-deprecating, a la ChanningT. Whatever keeps him around for as long as possible :)

    i thought that was Pitt for a second

  6. Spooks says:

    Thank God for the short hair. Now if he become much much less bulky, maybe I would find him attractive.

  7. Norman Bates' Mother says:

    He doesn’t do it for me but I have just realized that both him and Liam seem ageless to me, like Charlize Theron. The re-runs of Home and Away with Chris in it are currently running on one of my local cable channels and yesterday I caught a part of an episode where he had the same haircut and he was probably in his early 20′s but he looked exactly the same as he looks now, maybe a little bit less muscular. I don’t have a problem believing Chris is still in his 20′s but I also wouldn’t blink if someone told me he was pushing 40′s. And Liam seems age-appropriate for Miley when they are pictured together, but I didn’t cringe when he was seen with January Jones, because he looked age-appropriate for her as well. They are both looking young and mature at the same time if that makes any sense.

    He looks *so* good in these pics, however, I would have to say no out of respect and/or fear of Miss Jane. One disappointed sigh from Miss Jane can wound more than a hundred of Eve’s shanks.

      You know my motto, never deny yourself anything. You have three hours on me, I hope you used them wisely. Or did the Xanax you out in Cumby’s coffee wear off before you had CHemboy properly secured to the settee?

      I have been ruminating on this particular question this morning; I wanted to give it the respect it was due. After much thought, and I mean much thought, I have decided that yes, yes I would hit it…

      … like Moby Dick going after the Pequod

  9. Nikollet says:

    Yep I’d hit it for sure. Those arms – yum!

  10. MonicaQ says:

    Oh, Thor, why you do this to me?

    He still fine. Whatever.

  11. m says:

    If i would hit him? Every single day…

  12. Andrea says:

    He doesn’t really do it for me but I do think he’s a charming, enjoyable actor. I enjoy him as Thor.

  13. Original A says:

    Hemsworth fans? What is the deal about him apparently not wearing his wedding ring at times? I’ve seen comments and I am curious. Did he used to wear it 24/7 or something?

  14. Jane says:

    Long hair-short hair—no problem, the man is still a God.

  15. Hipocricy says:

    He is a good looking man, blond or dark haired, with short or long hair, scruffy or well shaven . he also has a cool demeanour…not stiff… which i like a lot.

    I also like that his features are great without being too effeminate. He has a manly beauty as opposed to a ken doll type like Cavill.

    He is just my style : tall, manly, cool, sporty and well proportionate.

  16. pretty says:

    I think he would look better with shorter hair like in The cabin in the woods.

    That hair is still too long~

  17. Alli says:

    That is a lovely blend of Heath Ledger and Timothy Olyphant.

  18. gorda says:

    I honestly don’t understand his appeal. I think he is too bland and boring. I don’t see him winning any oscars. When I think of him as an actor, I see him playing only superheroes.

  19. zara7 says:

    i remember watching him ten years ago on home and away, a terrible soapie but it’s nice to see him going on to such success!

  20. Palina says:

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo – I love me some men with long hair.
    But sure – I’d still hit it!

  21. Dawn says:

    I like that short hair on him, he looks like a yonger blonder version of Timothy Olyphant to me. Nothing bad so say about him that’s for sure.

  22. Jenna says:

    I actually think I like him better this way… 0_o

  23. ShakenNotStirred says:

    I like him better with long hair.

  24. MissNostalgia says:

    He looks great! I love Michael Mann and I am pleased that he managed to get Chris, as he is in demand. The only negative in this story is his famewhorey wife. But, as law of averages go in Hollywood, it is only a matter of time before they break up!

  25. Christo says:

    The haircut looks bad on him IMHO. Chris needs all those flowing gold locks to soften up the hard, lizard-eyed, Aussie roughness that is so characteristic to the genetics of the inhabitants of that former penal colony.

  26. MissThing says:

    So as a roll in the hay (once or 5 times…) I would indeed ride that “prize stallion” but for the long haul, not so much. I LOVE his acting though and the eye candy is lovely with short or long hair.

    Personally I really still wish to be in the center of a Hiddlesworth sandwich myself…

  27. Esmerelda says:

    …he looks a bit like the young Val Kilmer. Hope he has better luck. And I can’t wait to see M. Mann do a cyber warfare movie: hopefully it will be clichè free and logical.

  28. Grant says:

    You Cumberbitches and Fassdong ladies can keep yours. I’m sticking with this delicious beefcake. I want to feast on those gams like a turkey leg.

  29. Lexi says:

    I would totally hit it, he is sooo hot

  30. Jen34 says:

    Would I hit it? Is the Pope Catholic?

    I finally saw The Avengers this weekend and thought he stole it. RDJ may have had the best lines, but Thor was pure sex.

  31. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    He looks great, love the hair cut- it brings back my fond memories of him from his Home and Away days :) .

    I’d much rather have Chris become a big movie star and be in everything than Channing ‘Derp-de-derp’ Tatum or Fuglydict Cumberfug, who are both massively over rated.

  32. xxx says:

    This is how he used to look before Thor. I used to see him around Sydney a bit and this is his “natural” state. I think the super beef and the long hair is purely for roles.

  33. Lucy says:

    He’s giving me some serious Skarsgard vibes in these pictures…not a bad thing at all.

  34. Wren says:

    Christo – been to Australia lately? Where men look like men. Proud Aussie gal – love Chris! Also we love the penal colony reference, it’s hilarious. Do you realise that almost 50% of Australians are only second generation – i.e. huge multiculturalism here, there is not a “look” of men per se, we are a melting pot :-)
