Chris Hemsworth is hanging tough for Interview magazine's May issue.
The 27-year-old Thor stud is opening up about his love for the superhero's heavy hammer. He tells the mag:
- â€œIt is a pretty impressive piece of equipment. It was quite heavy, so that helped with the stunts. If it was too light, you would swing it around like a toothpick and it wouldnâ€™t look impressive. When there is some weight to it and you have to physically use your shoulder and back, it gives you a sense of power. I got very comfortable holding it. When I did the earthbound scenes without it, I felt naked.â€
Nice visual! Read what Chris says attracted Natalie Portman to her role in Thor ... after the jump.
Chris Hemsworth tells Interview:
- "I am incredibly lucky to work with those involved! I think the attraction for Natalie to a film like this was Kenneth Branaghâ€™s involvement. At that time in my life, I wasnâ€™t in a position to pick and choose who I wanted to work with. I just needed to pay the rent, and I was excited to be involved with something on this scale. I was signed up either way! This is by far the biggest thing I have ever been involved in and there is more anticipation than anything else."
