Chris Hemsworth is on the cover of the January 2015 GQ. Highlights below.
Good friends with Matt Damon: "We became friends around the time I started to work, and I've really benefited from watching how he handles himself," says Hemsworth. "Matt's just a normal guy who has the movie-star thing figured out."
What to buy him at the bar: Vodka-soda. "I was out in Australia recently and someone was like, 'Please tell me when you want a real drink.' I was just like, 'Oh, shut up. Really?' "
On being protective of younger brother Liam: “I’ve watched Liam do things I did at his age, like being in relationships he shouldn’t be in, or being reckless just to prove a point. And I had no empathy. My mom had to remind me I was the same way.”
On how older brother Luke helped save his career: “Back when I was still on the soap, I became incredibly insecure and full of anxiety because I didn’t know if I was any good. I spent years being angsty, constantly telling people I wasn’t just part of a soap opera, that I was a real artist. And I remember Luke sort of snapping, telling me to shut up, that he was sick of hearing it.”
On getting partying out of his system before getting to Hollywood: “The fame, the parties, the women—I did that stuff back home. I got away with a lot more over there. Then I came here and sort of started over.”
The Art Of The Perfect Selfie: He avoids the solo shot: "a little indulgent." But being asked to pose for pictures by an onslaught of fans is a job hazard that's forced him to develop a technique.
"People don't know how to use their cameras, so I end up going, 'Here, mate, let me do it.' So, yeah, I know how to take a selfie for that reason. Efficiency. Otherwise, I'd lose a few years of my life while people figure it out." "On the iPhone, use the volume button on the side, as opposed to awkwardly reaching around to tap the front of the screen."( Collapse ) Source 1
