Chris Hemsworth Makes The Case For Aussie Marriage Equality

Chris Hemsworth

We already know there are lots of reasons to love Avengers star, Chris Hemsworth.

Movie star, super-hero, super-easy on the eyes…

But as a vote looms on the horizon for Australians to cast a vote via mail on whether or not to legalize same-sex marriage (skipping the part that it’s icky from the get-go to vote on folks’ rights), Hemsworth took to his Instagram to urge fellow Aussies to vote for marriage equality.

#swoon

Dear open minded, free speaking, laid back, life loving Aussies. Marriage is about love and commitment and, in a country based on equal citizenship, it should be available to everyone! Vote now for marriage equality ✌️#equality

Trailer: “Thor: Ragnarok”

The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok finds the Asgardian warrior in a whole lotta trouble.

Not only does new villain, Cate Blanchett, look pretty formidable, but Thor eventually finds himself in a gladiator battle with fellow Avenger, the Hulk.

In addition to a jacked-to-the-max Chris Hemsworth and the aforementioned Blanchett, the flick features Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeff Goldblum.

Watch the trailer below. No release date for the film as yet.

Chris Hemsworth’s Shirtless “Thor” Workout

Thor star Chris Hemsworth shared this video (below) from his workouts with trainer Luke Zocchi, who gets Hemsworth into god-like shape for his role as the Avenger from Asgard.

Cardio, strength, and resistance exercises all play a part in beefing up the hunky Aussie for his upcoming flick, Thor: Ragnarok.

My first thought was, “Look at those arms and shoulders!”

But then, why look at just one part of the shirtless hunk?

Funny: Thor Takes Down Time Down Under

In case you were wondering what Thor was up to during CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

Turns out he needed some “me” time after saving the planet, so he decided to chill in Australia. Along the way he met a dude named Darryl and moved in with him.

Chris Hemsworth is quite funny in this little bit. Apparently, this was shown at Comic Con and there’s more 🙂

Bobby Holland Hanton, Chris Hemsworth’s Body Double, Is “God-Like” As Well

(via Instagram)

Chris Hemsworth’s body double, Bobby Holland Hanton, is just as ridiculously good looking as you’d expect.

There. Now you know. Woof.

Hanton has been working as Hemsworth’s body double since Snow White and the Huntsman, and continued on as stunt double in Thor 2, and has been a part of Team Hemsworth ever since.

Hanton says he has to eat about 35 meals a day and train 2x daily to stay near Hemsworth’s god-like size.

Standing in for Hemsworth isn’t Hanton’s only credit though – he’s been a stunt double for other stars (good-looking ones) like Christian Bale, Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, and Chris Evans.

Much more at his Instagram here.
