While Chris Hemsworth had no problem piling on more than 20lbs worth of muscle for his latest role as comic-book warrior Thor – he admits that slimming down would be a different story altogether.
Chatting to MTV Australia at the world premiere of the 3D flick in Sydney, the Aussie heartthrob, who underwent a grueling workout regime to bulk up his new biceps, said,
“I don’t mind sort of losing healthy weight, but if it gets to the point where I’m putting myself at risk, then I think ‘maybe I’ll sit that one out.’ I like food, I like eating. I’d rather that stretch of it than starving myself that’s for sure.”
Describing the on-screen chemistry between the former soapstar and the Oscar winner, who plays Thor’s love interest Jane Foster, the film’s director Kenneth Branagh told us,
“There’s spontaneity in their scenes together, they had a shared sense of humour, they surprised each other and they improvised a bit. There was just a really great, natural kind of bonding…but it had a few sparks to it. They admired each other a lot, and they brought that to it.”
