Chris Hemsworth has had to buy a number of larger suits in order to accommodate his “Thor size.”
The actor has portrayed the Marvel character since 2011, and will be seen reprising his Norse god role in Avengers: Endgame next year (19). Chris is required to undergo a significant physical transformation in order to play the part, with a diet and workout plan that allows him to gain over two stone in weight by the time he begins filming. However, this means he’s had to take his changing figure into account when putting his wardrobe together.
“When I was shooting for Avengers 4, I was a little bigger than I normally would be,” the 35-year-old explained in an interview with British GQ. “I have suits in a lot of sizes. Some are for my normal weight and the others are for my Thor size.”
Though the Australian star is often seen dressed in suave suits on the red carpet, his typical uniform is far more casual and sees him kitted out in T-shirts and shorts appropriate for his beachside home.
“I love a good suit for a red carpet event, because I don’t have to spend all of my days in one,” he smiled. “A tailor is key. I have greater confidence when a suit fits me.”
And Chris, who is a Boss Bottled ambassador for Hugo Boss, is adamant that a good fragrance is key to pulling together any great outfit, and added he often listens to his wife Elsa Pataky’s recommendations.
“I love a fragrance,” the Ghostbusters star insisted. “It’s like putting on a great suit. It makes you feel confident and gives you a different energy. I usually choose a fragrance that Elsa likes. She loves Boss Bottled; apple strudel – the inspiration for the scent – is her favourite food.”
