Chris Hemsworth, 38, revealed Russell Crowe comforted him while filming nude scenes for Thor: Love and Thunder.
“He’s doing a great thing where he’s also naked from the waist down. It made me feel good,” joked Hemsworth.
The Australian actor appeared on The Project with Thor director Taika Waititi to talk about the new film.
“On the set we have an agreement. I was naked too,” Waititi quipped. Hemsworth revealed that he wore “just one sock” on set as a “modest piece of clothing.”
“He’s wearing a sock over one ear. That’s his thing. He thinks it’s a distraction,” Taika interjected.
Hemsworth recently shared that he’d been expecting a nude scene on Thor since the series began a decade ago.
“It took 10 years to do this scene, kind of a dream of mine,” Hemsworth told Variety. “The first time I played Thor, I took off my t-shirt and I was like, ‘You know what’s going to make this cute… 10 years from now it’s all going to take off.”
Waititi said he wanted Hemsworth to show off his incredible physique.
“I feel like we’ve all talked about it,” Waititi told Variety. “We had been talking about, ‘Yes, we have to show this body.’ My whole thing was like that, Chris works so hard, you gotta show that. Don’t hide it with all those suits and cloaks and stuff, it’s not fair!”
Thor actress Natalie Portman was also allowed to show off her physical transformation for the film after being asked to “go as tall as possible.”
“On ‘Black Swan’ I was asked to be as small as possible,” the Oscar winner told Variety. “Here I was asked to grow as tall as possible. That is a great challenge and also a great attitude as a woman.”
She explained that the physical transformation also changed the way she walked through the world.
“To have that reaction and be considered big, you’re like, ‘Oh, it must be so different, going through the world like that,'” she said.
“When you’re little – and I think so too because I started when I was a kid – I often feel young or little or like a patting person on the head. And that’s why I present myself like this.”
The action-packed Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters July 8th.
