Chris Hemsworth talks ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’
Chris Hemsworth had a chat to TotalFilm about Snow White and The Huntsman:
TF: From Thor and Avengers Assemble to this – it’s another physical role for you?
CH: “There is definitely a physicality to it and plenty of action. When I was first approached about it, I didn’t want to do another big sort of action film. What I loved about Thor was the fact that I got to do some acting as well. But reading this script, the character is a drunk and a lost soul and has given up on the world and has got a dark past.”
The Huntsman has a lot of weapons – did you sustain any injuries?
“Kristen injured me. She punched me in the nose. There was a fight scene we had to do. When [our characters] first meet, she swings a punch at me. One take, it was skimming my nose. Then the next take, bam! I was out. I was done. She’s tiny, but that was a big punch. She’s like, ‘I’ve never hit anyone before.’ I was like, ‘I don’t believe it.’”
You’ve had a crazy few years with Thor, Avengers Assemble and The Cabin In The Woods…
“Yeah. The thing is, 10 years ago, when I first started, I wanted to get into acting. I dreamed about where I wanted to be. And this was sort of it. I absolutely stopped and thought, ‘Oh, my God – it’s a fantasy and I’m too incredibly lucky.’”
How are you dealing with the fame?
“Tom Hanks said something about the industry magnifying what you are. If you’re a dick you’re going to know. If you’re a nice guy then that’s going to shine. Hopefully, that’s true. I’m not a dick.”
Snow White and The Huntsman is released 1st June.
