The Australia-born actor has been cast in the action-packed movie co-starring Natalie Portman, and one would think it would go to his head. Not so, says the mag. Apparently Hemsworth is the farthest thing from a Hollywood bad boy. He is “humble, genuine and wholesome.”
Director Kenneth Branagh was also quick to praise the young Aussie: “We needed a Thor who was capable of primitive, unthinking violence, a thuggish and brutish quality,” Branagh said. “It’s the nature of Chris’ maleness that makes it work. His easy masculinity was crucial to the film’s overall tone.”
Thor opens May 6th.
