Chris and Liam Hemsworth are very competitive.
The 'Thor: The Dark World' actor draws inspiration from his own family when it comes to portraying the sibling rivalry between his character and Loki - portrayed by Tom Hiddleston - in the superhero movies, and admits he often bickers with brothers Liam and Luke.
He said: "We're competitive as siblings are, in everything from sport - backyard cricket and football - to who's in control of the remote watching TV ... You understand what it's like to have to that love/hate sort of thing where you'd do anything for them, but the simplest thing can a...

He said: "This might be the end of the line. This might be."

Chris Hemsworth doesn't want to bare all on screen. The Rush actor has admitted he was anxious enough about showing off his butt in the James Hunt biopic, and he doesn't want to strip off fully for the camera in the future.

The 30 year-old actor told MTV News: "I had enough trouble and fear and anxiety getting the backside out let alone, no it won't be out there."

Although Chris wasn't entirely comfortable with flashing his bottom in the movie, he knew it was something he had to do for his role as the Formula 1 star.

'Rush' Is One Hell Of A Ride

September 19th, 2013 8:00pm EDT
'Rush' directed by two time Academy Award winner, Ron Howard ('A Beautiful Mind', 'Frost/Nixon') is supposedly, based on a true story.

I say supposedly, because like many 'true stories', there's a great deal of 'not so true' stuff thrown into the mix.

'Rush' written by Peter Morgan ('Frost/Nixon) depicts the intense rivalry between two Formula One race car drivers.

The flamboyant, English playboy, James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, 'The Avengers, 'Thor') and his opponent, the overly controlled, Austrian, Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl, 'Inglorious Bastards) 

Hunt was the bad boy of racing.  When ...

Chris Hemsworth had to slim down for his new movie 'Rush'.

While the hunky 29-year-old actor packed on muscle to star in 'Thor' and as the god of Thunder in 'The Avengers' and the 'Thor' sequel, he was forced to drop weight to play Formula 1 racing star James Hunt in the upcoming film 'Rush'.

Chris told Esquire: "Thor is large. For that I had to add some muscle, which hasn't been all that hard so far. I like training just fine, thanks. But to play a Formula 1 driver, I had to drop quite a bit of that. You know, slim it down.

"First time I looked at a Formula 1 car in person, I just stare...

Joss Whedon says new 'Avengers' villain Ultron will "juice things up".

The director recently revealed the highly anticipated sequel to his 2012 superhero team-up movie will be called 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron', and he believes the robotic comic book villain will be a formidable foe for Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man and friends.

He told Total Film magazine: "I was pitching Ultron before I took the job on the first movie. I was like, 'I don't know if I want to do this, but for the second one, you should totally do Ultron.' Because he's been a thorn in their side as much as any other chara...

Not So Fast - Rep Says Kristen Stewart NOT Fired From 'Snow White And The Huntsman' Sequel

August 15th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
Kristen Stewart
Today the web is buzzing with the alleged decision to drop Kristen Stewart from the Snow White and the Huntsman franchise, instead focusing on Chris Hemsworth's character for the sequel. However, Hollywood Reporter might have gotten it all wrong.

A Universal spokesperson has now told Us Weekly, "We are exploring options to continue the franchise and no decisions have been made."

Not exactly supporting Kristen's continued employment on the series, but far from confirming she was fired.

Earlier today, Hollywood Reporter had claimed, "Universal has decided to shelf its planned Snow White an...

Chris Hemsworth Will Save Us From the Upcoming 'Robopocalypse'

July 20th, 2012 9:05pm EDT
Chris Hemsworth
It's simple logic: When you have an important job that needs to get done, you call in someone who has experience doing it. A pipe breaks in your basement? You don't have your cousin Kenny take a look at it, you call in an expert plumber. Tear something in your shoulder playing basketball? Forget about asking your neighbor Lou for advice, it's time to see an arthroscopic surgeon.

And when the world is about to end via "Robopocalypse?" Well, that's a job for Chris Hemsworth.

Trust us, he knows what he's doing.

Yes, folks, the future of the world — or at least the entertainment future of t...

Cyrus confirmed the happy news on Wednesday, and has since learned her boyfriend of three years proposed last week.

Review: 'Snow White And The Huntsman' Takes Itself Too Seriously

June 1st, 2012 1:30pm EDT
Snow White and the Huntsman
Okay folks, 'Snow White' is back and this time she's mad as hell and ready to kick some butt.

First off, I must ask, did we really need two films this year about Miss White? Personally, I think it was one was too many.

In any case, 'Snow White and the Huntsman' directed by Rupert Sanders, stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron, as the super evil Queen, Ravenna and Chris Hemsworth as the hunky Huntsman.

We all know the story, so I'll be brief...

Ravenna feeds on the souls of virgins in order to maintain her youthful glow (guess she never heard about Botox). After she kills...

Review: 'Snow White and the Huntsman'

June 1st, 2012 11:12am EDT
Snow White 1
Mirror, mirror on the wall, is telling me that Kristen Stewart is the fairest of them all? Fairer than Charlize Theron? I don’t believe it, and you won’t either when you watch “Snow White and the Huntsman.” If by fairest, the mirror means that she’s pastier and more chipmunk-like in appearance, then yes Kristen Stewart is definitely the fairest of them all.

Even though the movie is a fairy tale, first-time director Rupert Sanders and his writers expect you to buy into some pretty farfetched ideas. Kristen Stewart being the most beautiful woman in the land is just one of them.

Stewart’s Sn...
