Chris Hemsworth has revealed he became so ripped before filming ‘Thor’ that his costume made his hands go numb.
The filmmakers might have regretted their decision to ask the ‘Star Trek’ actor – who could have been more suited to ‘The Incredible Hulk’ – to get “as big as you can”, because his costume was too tight.
He said: “I came back right before Christmas, just before we started the movie, and had a final sort of camera test and put the costume on and within a couple of minutes, my hands started going numb.
“I started getting pins and needles and you’d touch the skin and the blood wouldn’t return to that area so quick.”
Perhaps Chris’s buff physique may attract a few more women to check out ‘Thor’?
Or, maybe his description of the movie – which stars Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins – as having a “real sense of humour” could do the trick.
