Chris Hemsworth thinks Hollywood doesn’t consider it a “serious actor“and has a theory as to why this label was stuck on him.
In a new interview with The Telegraph, the 37-year-old actor explained that he must constantly maintain his physique to perform Thor in Marvel movies, but how this is only seen as “vanity“:
“There is an aesthetic that the role requires“Chris told the tabloid.”Bodybuilding is seen as vanity, while if I was gaining an unhealthy weight or getting unhealthy skinny for a role, I would likely be called a serious actor.“.
But he does not deny the role of Thor, on the contrary he is very proud of it:
“The 10 year long training is a full time job. That and then a 12-hour shooting day: it’s a real struggle “, he added. “It’s also incredibly rewarding – you have to watch it like a professional athlete.“
Great news from the world of cinecomics, the Daily Mail has published i first shots stolen from the set of Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth film dedicated to the God of Thunder by Marvel Studios. Filming began in late January in Sidney in Australia.
