During his recent interview with Esquire magazine, the 34-year-old actor talked about being one of the Four Famous Chrises in Hollywood. Of course, Marvel fans are anxious to know more about the upcoming “Avengers 4” and Hemsworth was more than happy to oblige.
As the self-proclaimed first Avenger to spot a beard, the 6’3″ blonde Aussie hunk has some feelings about Captain America’s facial in “Infinity War”. “I’d like to say I was the original, if that means anything. (Chris Evans) certainly, I feel like, copied me. Quite cheaply,” he told the publication. The comparison was even brought up in the movie itself during the battle at Wakanda.
So what is his relationship with the rest of the Famous Chrises like, you ask? “I have different affections for different reasons. Chris Pine is my son, on screen, with our ‘Star Trek’ history. Chris Evans is probably my closest Avenger friend. And Chris Pratt and I, it’s the freshest, newest friendship. So I’m thankful for all of their high-fives and good times that we’ve had,” Hemsworth shared.
If you thought the end of “Infinity War” was shocking, Hemsworth has some news for you. “I think the 2nd one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely. That’s what kind of blew me away the first time I read both scripts, is how they managed to orchestrate so many different characters but give them each their own separate shot and moments, and have it be elevated and feel fresh and unique—not just like a messy, thrown-together assembly of these guys,” the A-lister said.
He added, “The 2nd one I’m probably even more excited about. Just for people to see. I just think it’s another step again. Each step we seem to take with these films, I’ve loved the fact that there’s been growth and evolution and it continues to surprise people as opposed to sort of flatlining, which was obviously always a fear—that they’d run out of ideas or run dry of creative excitement. For me, this whole experience has been incredible. In particular the last one.”
