There are a lot of Chrises in the acting world right now – that goes without saying.
Even in the superstar acting world, it feels like Chrises have more than their fair share of the spotlight. Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth – each of these actors have had stellar careers, and all are someone’s favourite.
However, an article running down the individual achievements of each of the world’s favourite Chrises would indisputably have too much Chris, which is why today we’re focusing on everyone’s favourite Thor – Chris Hemsworth.
Here are 20 things you probably didn’t know about him.
20. His brother once almost tried to kill him with a knife
Chris’s life was almost cut short by his own brother, Liam, after the pair got into a fight when they were younger.
Liam recalls a youth that was dominated with fights between himself and his brother, Liam.
Apparently both were extremely stubborn children, which isn’t hard to imagine giving the roles they have played onscreen.
Because he was the smaller brother, Liam remembers that he often had to use weapons to make it a fair fight, but one attempt nearly cost Chris his life.
Liam threw a knife at Chris, but fortunately for both of them, it landed handle first.
This may have been a result of Liam’s anger over being bullied by his brothers as a child, including being wrapped in blankets and hunted with air rifles.
19. He was the reason Thor: Ragnarok was shot Down Under
Even though he is a native of the country, to date Hemsworth has only filmed one movie on home turf.
