Chris Hemsworth at G-Star Raw: No Hats, Ladies!

Chris Hemsworth — soon to play Marvel’s “Thor” — could not have turned more heads at Saturday’s G-Star Raw show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week if he were the real Norse god of thunder.

StyleList asked the Aussie actor turned comic-book superhero what he liked on a woman.

“Whatever a woman feels comfortable in is usually appealing,” he said with a smile. “That’s the main thing. They wear it better that way.”

The actor’s wife, Elsa Pataky (pictured with him), chimed in: “He likes a natural look. If he doesn’t like something, he’s very honest.”

And what accessory has he vetoed? Pataky revealed, “When I put a hat on it’s like, ‘I don’t know about the hat.'”

Hemsworth may not approve of headwear but he does enjoy a wide range of styles on women. He told StyleList, “I’m all about variety. It’s wintertime, layers and jackets and scarves are great. Then in summertime, dresses.”

The 27-year-old was clad in G-Star Raw jacket, T-shirt and jeans and was pleased with his apparel. “All of it is comfortable, it fits well and doesn’t fall apart.”

What did the Fashion Week newbie think about the momentous occasion? “So far, so good. Obviously, enough people gather from all over the world to show their pieces and it’s a very positive atmosphere and a lot of fun.”

Hemsworth was asked what was the best part of being in the big-screen adaptation of “Thor”? He told StyleList, “Look, being part of that comic-book world is pretty awesome. It’s existed for more years than I’ve been around. It’s an honor to be involved in it all.”

Really? I thought it was his character’s flowing blond locks and bright red cape.

It’s a new ‘Dawn’ for ‘Cabin In The Woods’ as Sony and MGM continue to make their deal

MGM’s financial woes are the stuff of legend at this point.

As long as I’ve lived in Los Angeles… just over twenty years at this point… MGM has been “in trouble.” There have been several major shifts in ownership, and who owns what, and the MGM library has been broken up and resold many times over. As a result, this latest round of MGM difficulty has been a fair amount of white noise for me, more of the same, with the notable exception of the fates of “Bond 23” and “The Hobbit.”

Those were the biggest stories tied up in this larger story, and as Greg Ellwood wrote last night, it looks like “Bond 23” has become terribly important to Sony. And why not? They had a major part in both “Casino Royale” and “Quantum Of Solace,” and they’ve gotten used to that James Bond money. They’ve also been part of laying some narrative groundwork that I hope pays off finally in this next film, and with Sony already in the Daniel Craig business in a big way with Fincher’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” it makes sense that they want to keep track of him and be part of scheduling his time over the next few years.

But now that the big questions are out of the way, there are a few other important issues on the table, and it looks like Sony may be riding to the rescue of some smaller films that need the help. In particular, “Red Dawn” and “Cabin In The Woods,” which have been missing in action for a while now, and which are both movies that deserve their day in court.

Anthony Hopkins Messed With Chris Hemsworth’s Head On ‘Thor’ Set

If a superhero is going to have a mentor, it should be someone major like Brando or The Dude. Sir Anthony Hopkins is another good one. Playing Odin in the big movie version of Thor, Sir Anthony enjoyed messing with beefy Chris Hemsworth.

“I’m glad I’m not young anymore because you see their insecurities and I always joke along with them,” Hopkins said while he was promoting the Woody Allen comedy You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. “I say things like, ‘Is that the way you’re going to play it?’ Chris and I got to know each other but he was looking nervous and I said, ‘Oh, is that the way you’re going to play it?’ He said, ‘Yeah, is it okay?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s your career.’’

‘Thor’ Star Chris Hemsworth Is ‘Beautiful’ As God Of Thunder, Says Former Co-Star

With all the manly talk surrounding “Thor” star Chris Hemsworth, there’s enough testosterone in the collective conversation to fuel the spontaneous growth of a few new chest hairs.

All this is well and good of course, but Hemsworth’s “Home and Away” co-star/fellow Aussie Sharni Vinson recently took a moment to express a little girlish enthusiasm for the lesser-discussed ‘Thor’ conversation topics and namely Hemsworth himself and her reaction to him being cast as the God of Thunder.
