Chris Hemsworth is pretty well known as Thor right now, which is all fine and dandy, but there's a whole world out there that might not care about comic book superhero movies (they're nuts!). Soon, they'll know Chris's name and face for a completely different role — as a 1970's Formula 1 driver in the upcoming Rush!
As you can imagine, the two body types are completely different! Thor is a God… and James Hunt drives a car really fast!
Here's what Chris said on the subject:
"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."
As long as you're being healthy about it, we honestly couldn't care about what size his muscles are — it's all about those eyes and that accent for us! LOLz!
Still, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to do that in every-day life, let alone for a job!
It sounds like Thor has more tricks up his sleeve (though, does Thor have sleeves?) than we though! We'd LOVE to be his spotter in the gym!
