Australian-born stud Chris Hemsworth, who will next be seen in 'Thor: The Dark World' and 'Rush', shows off his mesmerizing good looks on the September 2013 issue of Esquire magazine, which is currently available on newsstands.
In the magazine, the 29-year-old blonde dishes on how he stays in shape for his roles, how he deals with the pressures that are put on him by comic book fans and his changing career aspirations. Read some interesting excerpts from the shoot beneath:
On Staying In Shape:
"Thor is large. For that I had to add some muscle, which hasn’t been all that hard so far. I like training just ﬁne, thanks. But to play a Formula One driver, I had to drop quite a bit of that. You know, slim it down. First time I looked at a Formula One car in person, I just stared at the cockpit, ﬁguring I’d never get in there. The drivers wear the whole car like a tight-ﬁtting suit. So I just started training differently, shedding all that Thor. I’ve come to see size as just a kind of prop."
On His Big Career Aspirations:
"I remember being in high school, every week I had a different idea about what I wanted to do. One week it was Ah, I’m gonna be a doctor. The next it was I’m bound to be a professional sports player—you know, Aussie football and that stuff. Then I’d want to be a police ofﬁcer. A lawyer. They were all elevated ideas to me, of me, in some way. Exaggerated conditions of what I wanted to be. Or of where I wanted to be. I can remember watching Lord of the Rings and being truly regretful that I wasn’t a being in that world."
On "Thor" and Comic Book Fans:
"You talk to the comic-book fans, people who’ve been there since the beginning—you know, since the sixties—and you realize the religious signiﬁcance of this thing. And there is a kind of work that follows. You do your research. You listen and learn what you can. But then you let go. Eventually you’re down to it. You gotta make this guy your own. The challenge in the ﬁrst installment was this ﬁsh-out- of-water quality, this naivete about everything that makes up earth. That was a familiar dynamic to me. A Crocodile Dundee thing, really. A stranger arrives at your shore. He’s in foreign territory, out of his element, with his own set of tools. Very powerful in one world, stripped of that power in the next."
