“Fat Thor” was the talk of Hollywood when Avengers: Endgame premiered, but Chris Hemsworth says the Asgardian god’s full figure actually freaked out his kids.
In an Extra interview alongside co-star Tessa Thompson promoting their new film, Men in Black: International, Hemsworth was asked an obligatory question about fat Thor, saying that he got a hilariously mixed reaction from his children.
“They hated it,” Hemsworth tells Extra. “Not the movie. They really didn’t like me being like that. They’re like, ‘When does he change back? What’s he doing then?’ I say they hate, I think they just they were quite shocked. Actually no, my daughter afterward was like — I said, ‘Which did you like better?’ and she’s like, ‘The fat one.’ And I sad, ‘Oh really?’ And she goes, ‘Yeah, it’s funny.’ But she didn’t think I’d want to hear that. I was like, ‘No, I like that version of him too.’ But initially, they were like, they didn’t really know what to do it with it. But afterwards they were like, ‘Oh, that’s kind of fun. It’s cool.’ I think they just wanted to see the hammer and the flying and all the cool stuff.”
Avengers: Endgame is now playing in theaters. Upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 2nd.
