Chris Hemsworth On His ‘Thor’ Costume: ‘It’s Not Very Comfortable, But It Looks Amazing’

The secrecy of director Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of “Thor” has been so great, that even though filming is currently winding down, only a single shot of Chris Hemsworth in his Thor costume has emerged online.

And while Thor’s outfit appears to be taken directly from the recent “Thor” run by J. Michael Straczynski and Olivier Coipel, the costume was extremely uncomfortable, according to Hemsworth.

“I put the [costume] on and said ‘It’s not very comfortable, but it looks amazing, so it’s all good.'” during an interview with Superhero Hype. “And then a couple of weeks in, I thought ‘It’s getting more and more uncomfortable,’ and at the end of three, four months it was a pretty difficult thing to wake up and put on every morning. But it’s sells such an image in the picture. It does a lot of the work for you.”

Alloy Interview with Chris Hemsworth

Hey, Trekkies! We’ve got a special treat for you. We sat down and talked to THE Captain Kirk (Sr.), Chris Hemsworth, for all the nerdy behind the scenes secrets of Star Trek. The Aussie told us all about being on set, playing a legendary character and his past soap opera life he left behind. Get more details on Chris now!

The Verge: Chris Hemsworth

Ever seen a striking new actor and wondered, “Who’s that?” Now you’ll know before you even have to ask. Welcome to The Verge, Movieline’s weekly interview with up-and-comers on the verge of a serious career boost.

In the new Star Trek reboot, Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk struggles to live up to the legacy his father has set at Starfleet — and so, too, does the prologue involving that dead dad establish the whiz-bang tone the whole movie must follow. Australian actor Chris Hemsworth plays the elder Kirk, and as he tells Movieline, he understands the long shadow that family can cast. But what happens when he’s competing with one of his brothers for a role in the newest Hollywood blockbuster?

You’ve got two other brothers, Luke and Liam, who are also actors. You’re the middle child…how did you all go into that profession? Was it like a toppling of dominoes?
My older brother Luke was on Neighbours [a long-running Australian soap] when I finished high school. I was looking at what my next step was gonna be — I didn’t want to go to university, and I had a different plan each week. And he said, “Look, why don’t you try this acting course?” I did that and it sort of went from there, and then my younger brother Liam had pretty much the same experience and took the same course after high school.
