Chris Hemsworth covers the May 2012 issue of Out Magazine. In his cover story entitled Chris Hemsworth: Of Gods & Men, he speaks on his early struggles after his move to Los Angeles from Australia, being called the “girl” of all of his brothers by his mom, his relationship with good friend Channing Tatum, and much more.

On being called “the girl” out of all of his brothers:

“My mum always used to say to me that, out of her three boys, ‘Chris, you were the girl’…I’d speak to her about far more things than [my brothers] would and far more things than she needed to hear about, too. I was a chatty kid.”

On the good advice he received from Channing Tatum:

Channing made a good point about audiences these days having ADHD. You can’t keep away for too long. Stars are pumped out. We live in a different age. The movie is a lot bigger than the star. There are plenty of guys you can throw into action roles, but you have to capitalize on it.”

On being worried that his size in ‘Thor’ will lead to typecasting:

“Being that size, you are very quickly stereotyped. Clearly, you can’t be talented if you’re that bulky. He’s going to be a meathead, you know? You do wonder if you’ll be restricted and not allowed to do anything else. But what it gives you far outweighs those negatives. Kenneth Branagh, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins — this was not your average blockbuster superhero thing.”
