Picks and Pans Review: Meet Thor's Divinely Handsome Star
The Aussie actor, 27, got ripped to play the Norse god and comic-book hero.
FIRST THING'S FIRST: HOW HEAVY IS THOR'S HAMMER?
I don't have the exact weight, but it needed to have some weight to it to dictate more powerful movements. Let's just say 200 lbs. to make me sound cool.
EITHER WAY, YOU'RE IN INSANE SHAPE.
I tracked down a great trainer, Duffy Gaver, who trained Brad Pitt in Troy. And every hour or two something was being consumed-and not pizza and hamburgers and fun stuff.
HOW DID YOU UNWIND AFTER?
I went to Indonesia and had lots of nasi goreng, which is like fried rice, and Bintang beer.
DID YOUR WIFE, FAST FIVE'S ELSA PATAKY, GO?
I went a few times and she came once. We like to stay active, and the surfing there is the biggest attraction.
DOES SHE ASK YOU TO LIFT MORE NOW?
If there's work to be done, she'd say, "Let's put that body to work!" [laughs] No. That sounds ridiculous.
