Chris Hemsworth has been honored with the title of GQ Australia’s Man of the Year. To celebrate, the actor participated in an editorial feature with the magazine.
Hemsworth spoke about growing up in Australia. “It was a different world. There were crocodiles and buffalo. We were isolated, one of two white families. We saw a lot of corroborees and tribal dancing. I have a wider understanding for the Aboriginal situation because of my time there. It’s an insight into that world that most people don’t get.”
The actor also spoke about keeping busy with work. “This year may appear like it was big, but it’s only because all the films I’ve been working on have finally come out. The past four or five years have just been a blur.”
Something very surreal occurred for Hemsworth when his own childhood was reflected back at him. He explained, “It was definitely a dream scenario. I was on ‘The Avengers‘ publicity tour and I had a real moment where it felt like I was part of something special. Kids were looking at ‘The Avengers’ like I used to look at ‘Star Wars.’ They were running around pretending to be us.”
