Thor star Chris Hemsworth graces the May cover of Men’s Health and talks about bulking up to play the superhero and his own superheroes. 

On lifting weights:
“It wasn’t until Thor that I started lifting weights. It was all pretty new to me.”

On his favorite comic book character:
“My favorite comic book character? I would have to say Thor, I didn’t read it as a kid but since being involved in the film, and reading it, I’m a huge fan.”
 

On being a video game character:
“I’d never thought I’d be a video game character, and now that it’s happened, what a blessing.”

On appearing in Thor sequels:
“I’m signed up for more sequels and what have you for more venues in Thor, so there is more of that to come definitely.”

On his role models, including Anthony Hopkins:
“Anthony Hopkins. His whole approach to this business, his work ethic and attitude on set was inspiring, however many films down the track he still has that and he still is excited to be there and treats everyone as equals and everything he does, he is an impressive person.  I love Paul Giamatti, Johnny Depp, Al Pacino and Matt Damon, ya know, I could go on and on.”
 



On fearlessly searching caves in Australia as a kid:
“We built wooden swords and hammered nails into them, and we checked out the cave. My friends and I were convinced we’d meet some ghosts and devils.”
 
On why he loves being an actor:

“I always loved film, but never thought about it as a career choice. I had a different idea of what I wanted to do professionally every week. You know, I was a lawyer one week, a doctor, a sportsman in some way, and then I found out I can pretend to do all those things in acting.”
