Chris Hemsworth of “The Avengers” – Who knew?!
What is in the Hemsworth DNA? Liam is no doubt on everyone’s mind because of The Hunger Games, but it’s his older brother Chris Hemsworth that is having a pretty good 2012 right about now. The Cabin in the Woods surprised everyone when it became a hit and this weekend he rocks his hammer as Thor in The Avengers. The one thing anyone knows about Chris Hemsworth just by looking at him is he’s drop dead gorgeous, but if you look under that superhero demeanor, you’ll find so much more!
- Hemsworth earned the nickname “Kip” when he was younger due to pronouncing his own name, “Kiptader.”
- He participated in the 5th season of Australia’s Dancing with the Stars…The US DWTS season 5? Wayne Newton, shall we all pack up and move down under? Seems like they know how to cast sex appeal.
- Hemsworth once cleaned breast pumps at a pharmacy for a living.
- He’s admitted Degrassi is a TV addiction of his. Wonder what he thinks of “Drake?”
- Hemsworth met his wife, Elsa Pataky, through their management company, ROAR.
- He almost lost the role of Thor to his younger brother Liam. The director didn’t even think of Chris, and had his eye on the younger Hemsworth.
