According to Fandomwire, Chris Hemsworth has been making a name for himself in Hollywood at a rapid pace, but he is not immune to the ups and downs of being in the limelight. Like many other actors, Hemsworth has his likes and dislikes when it comes to interviews and media coverage, and he recently opened up about a particularly upsetting experience he had.
Despite his growing fame, Hemsworth remains committed to promoting fitness and health, and he has put a great deal of effort into developing and maintaining his impressive physique. However, this dedication to his physical appearance has also led to comparisons with one of the most iconic action movie stars of all time: Arnold Schwarzenegger.
When asked about these comparisons in an interview, Hemsworth expressed his disappointment and frustration at being reduced to a mere physical specimen, rather than being recognized for his work as an actor. He explained that he had chosen scripts and projects based on their strong narratives and talented casts, rather than simply their emphasis on action and fighting.
Hemsworth also noted that he was a fan of movies that blended genres and incorporated multiple themes and elements, rather than those that focused solely on one aspect, such as action or romance. In his view, this approach allowed for more depth and complexity, and made for more compelling and engaging films.
“I got asked the other day, did you always want to be the next Schwarzenegger? And I thought, that’s what you’ve got from what I’ve done? I was really disappointed, like I thought, you know, that I’d chosen these scripts and loved them because they had real actors in them and real story and heart, and sometimes with films the action overshadows anything else.
What both of them have though, I feel more so than ever, is that we’re combining themes in movies, it’s not much that it’s either an action film or a romance film or a comedy, it’s like, all these films now have all these themes colliding together and creating these big adventures
Despite his differences with Schwarzenegger in terms of their respective approaches to acting and filmmaking, Hemsworth acknowledged that they both shared a passion for creating big adventures and telling stories that resonated with audiences on a deep level. And while he may not have wanted to be compared to the action movie legend, he remained committed to pursuing his own unique vision and carving out his own place in Hollywood.
