Chris Hemsworth has become one of the best known actors in the film industry, mainly for his role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The interpreter has also stood out for his physical form, something that is related to giving life to a god from Norse mythology. That although in Avengers: Endgame the superhero of Asgard shows a very different aspect from what he has used to his fans. Now, Hemsworth, who is shooting the fourth installment of Marvel’s god of thunder Thor: Love and Thunder, has stated on the Telegraph that he is not considered a “serious actor” because of his muscles.
The actor is in the middle of filming ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, the fourth installment in the saga about Marvel’s god of thunder.
There is an aesthetic that the paper requires. Bodybuilding looks like vanity, whereas if I gain a lot of unhealthy weight or get too skinny for a role, they will probably say I’m a serious actor.
Hemsworth, in addition, has commented on what it means to take years playing a role in which the muscular physique is something that is related to the character. “Training over 10 years is a full-time job,” he explains. “That, and after 12 hours of shooting a day, it’s a real routine. It’s also incredibly rewarding. You have to see him as a professional athlete,” he adds.
The actor has also spoken about Thor: Love and Thunder and stressed that it is the superhero movie for which he is “probably fittest and strongest.” Also, spending so much time at home because of the coronavirus crisis has made him explore other forms of training. “Having all this time at home means that I have explored different methods to see how I could manipulate my body with the right amount of weight lifting and muscle exercises.”
Due to the images of the filming of Thor: Love and Thunder that have appeared on the Internet, the god of thunder has abandoned the physique with which he appeared in Avengers: Endgame to return to that of the previous installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which he has appeared . Directed by Taika Waititi, who already debuted in the franchise as a director in Thor: Ragnarok, the film has many familiar faces in its cast for fans of the saga.
