Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth are currently filming Thor 2: The Dark World, and we’re already looking forward to seeing the actors’ “bromance” both on-screen and off-screen when they promote the new movie, due to be released in November 2013.
The pair spoke about working together in 2011’s Thor in an interview posted on Collider.com. Although Hiddleston, 32, and Hemsworth, 29, play rival brothers Loki and Thor in the series, they get along much better in real life.
“It’s much easier to hate someone on screen, if you actually like them off screen,” Hemsworth revealed.
“It’s a more enjoyable ride. There’s nothing personal about it. We got along. We came into this, at the same point in our careers, with the same enthusiasm and love for these types of films, and just had a great time doing it. You either have chemistry with someone or you don’t and, thankfully, it was there. To play brothers was easy and fun.”
“It’s quite literally a bromance. The ‘bro’ aspect of the word is for real,” Hiddleston added.
“Chris is absolutely right. I can’t imagine having to go to the emotional extremity that we both had to go to, if we actually didn’t like each other. It would have just been horrendous to go to work.
“The fact that we get along, we just egg each other on. We raised each other’s game. We just had a really, really good time. There were so many things that went wrong, that were just accidents that made us laugh.
“It’s such a huge journey. We both spent two years of our lives working on this film, and it’s so nice that there’s somebody else who’s alongside. Chris had a few drinks at the wrap party and was hanging out the window on the way back to the hotel, and before we went up to our rooms he said, You’re the only one who understands, mate.'”
