Chris Hemsworth on seeing Thor’s butt in #ThorLoveAndThunder: “It was 10 years in the making that scene — kind of a dream of mine. The first time I played Thor I took my shirt off and I thought, ‘You know what’s gonna sweeten this…'” https://t.co/3aIXbiXW0C pic.twitter.com/kD2wsPN0zL

“It was 10 years in the making that scene — kind of a dream of mine,” Hemsworth said. “The first time I played Thor I took my shirt off and I thought, ‘You know what’s gonna sweeten this… a decade from now it’s all gonna come off.”
Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi also discussed Hemsworth’s big butt moment in the film, saying that Chris worked too hard to not show off his body.
“I feel like we had all talked about it,” Waititi said. “We had talked about, ‘Yeah, we gotta show off this body.’ My whole thing was like, Chris works so hard, you’ve gotta show it off. Don’t cover it up with all these suits and the cape and stuff, it’s not fair!”
In the same chat with Variety, Hemsworth also talked about seeing Natalie Portman as Mighty Thor for the first time, saying that it was “a little stab to the ego, but I quickly got over it and I was in awe of everything she had done .”
