‘It’s all gonna come off’: Chris Hemsworth Reveals He Wanted The Naked Thor Scene Since the First Movie

Chris Hemsworth wanted to do a naked Thor scene since the first movie. One of the most talked-about scenes in the trailer of Thor: Love and Thunder is the one where Thor is stripped naked in front of a full arena. Though pixelated, the naked Thor scene is something that has turned into a sensation. The trailer includes a shot in the naked scene where a number of ladies pass out, and fans have quite a similar reaction to it. As it turns out, it is the actor himself who asked the director to add the scene.

Chris Hemsworth has a body to swoon over and there have been scenes included where the actor is seen shirtless a number of times over the years. But as it turns out he wasn’t happy with just that. He told Variety, “It was 10 years in the making that scene — kind of a dream of mine,” he 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.'”

Even Taika Waititi seemed fond of the idea and pushed hard to have the scene included. In an earlier interview, he shared, “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!” The actor also talked about it being bigger than the last time he did for a 2013 movie, Rush, “In a Marvel film, it was a very large screen, it was a very big pair of cheeks, and, I don’t know, I had seen it before.”
