Style Crush: Chris Hemsworth
Known For: Acting, "Thor"
Style: Masculine, Sleek, Conservative, Casual
This week's Style Crush is the swoon-worthy Chris Hemsworth. Chris is a 30-year old Australian actor who is best known for his role as "Thor" in the movies Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: the Dark World. He grew up moving between Bulman, Australia (very rural with buffalo and crocodiles), and Melbourne, Australia (second most populated city in Australia), with his brothers Luke and Liam. You could say he has some rugged, outdoors-man in him as well as sophisticated, city-boy. Best of both worlds. At the age of 21, Chris auditioned for Home and Away, a hit Australian soap opera. Although, he did not get the role he originally auditioned for, he ended up getting called back to join the cast as another lead role. He went on to appear in 184 episodes before leaving to pursue a career in the United States. He landed his first American film role in the 2009 Star Trek as James T. Kirk's father. In 2011, after impressing the Hollywood scene with his good looks and talents, Chris scored the role of his lifetime as Thor (beating out numerous up-and-coming actors, including his younger brother, Liam). Since then, he has gone on to star in blockbusters, such as The Cabin in the Woods, Snow White and the Huntsman, Red Dawn, and Rush.
In spite of a booming career, around-the-world fame, and an ever-growing fan base, Chris is a strong, loyal family man. He met Spanish actress/model Elsa Pataky in early 2010 through mutual representation. The two instantly hit it off and married that December. The happy couple had their first daughter India Rose in May, 2012. They just announced that they are 3 months pregnant with their second child. Chris is very content with his work, but he admits his best accomplishment thus far is definitely being a father. On the subject of fatherhood, Chris said, "Being a father is certainly a task. But the best one that I could ever ask for. Being home, being with the family, that's what it's about" (Daily Mail Reporter). As if being insanely handsome and incredibly talented wasn't enough...sigh. Juggling his fast-paced career and loving family, Chris is a very busy man. On the red carpet, he always looks dapper and well-dressed, while casual and cool on his downtime. Definitely a guys' guy. Whether he's flexing his muscles on screen, turning heads at premieres and awards shows, or making jaws drop while out and about, Chris Hemsworth is a total hunk.
