Bloopers That Make Us Love Chris Hemsworth Even More

Chris Hemsworth is one of those rare actors who can do it all. The Australian star excels at action—he's the mighty Thor of the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe—but he can also handle fantasy (those Huntsman movies), comedy (the Ghostbusters reboot), drama (Rush), and even horror (The Cabin in the Woods). This versatility means that Hemsworth makes a lot of movies, and like all of us, he's allowed to have a bad day at the office every now and then. All those long hours on set nailing take after take can make even the biggest movie stars get a little loopy and fall off their game. Unlike your goof-ups at work, the results of Hemsworth's mishaps have been caught on film for all the world to see—and we've taken the liberty of rounding up some of the funniest examples for your amusement. Here's a look at some bloopers that make us love Chris Hemsworth even more.

The Avengers - Juggling act

Mjolnir, Thor's mighty hammer, is unmovable by pretty much everyone except the god of thunder himself. It's probably the most famous object in Norse mythology, and certainly the most famous tool in comics this side of Captain America's shield or Batman's utility belt. But it's not real, of course. The one Hemsworth carries around in all those MCU movies is just a prop. It's also incredibly lightweight—as this blooper shows, Hemsworth can toss it around and juggle it quite easily. Okay, maybe not "easily," because he can't get a handle on the thing, bobbles it a few times, and then drops it.

Thor: The Dark World - Do a little dance

It's both ironic and hilarious when what's supposed to be among the strongest, most tenacious, unbreakable objects on the planet breaks in half and reveals itself for what it is: some flimsy stuff cobbled and glued together. The prop department at Marvel Studios just might need to invest in some sturdier materials, or just some better hammer glue. In this blooper, Mjolnir takes some battle damage and falls apart in Hemsworth's hands. Fortunately, the actor turns the problem into an opportunity—to dance! Hemsworth improvises a little dance routine, twirling the broken hammer like a dancer would do with a cane in an old movie musical.

Thor: The Dark World - Uncontrollable cape

The three most defining characteristics of Thor, or at least as he's presented in the Marvel movies: he's got that powerful hammer in his hand, long blond hair rests on his head and shoulders, and his red cape ripples in the wind behind him. Well, two out of three ain't bad—because one of those things can't always do what Thor wants it to do. On the set of this standalone Thor movie, Hemsworth's most temperamental co-star was that cape. It unpredictably flew every which way, even slapping the star in the face.

Thor: The Dark World - Case of the mumbles

This emotionally climactic moment from The Dark World is supposed to be tender, powerful, and serious. Hemsworth is supposed to tell Natalie Portman's character, Jane Foster, that "no matter what happens" everything will be okay, et cetera, et cetera. Despite the seriousness of the emotionally climactic moment, Hemsworth can't get his lines out...or even keep a straight face.

The Huntsman: Winter's War - Suspended action

Hemsworth plays the Huntsman in the two The Huntsman movies. They're action-packed adaptations of the Snow White folk tale, collected and popularized by the Brothers Grimm in 19th century Germany. They're actually set sometime long before that—the movies have a strong Medieval, fairy tale vibe. At any rate, it's long before the dawn of mechanical flight. That means Hemsworth has to put the acting on pause for a while when filming is interrupted by an extremely loud airplane flying overhead and drowning him out.

The Huntsman: Winter's War - Horsing around

While Hemsworth had to wait out an airplane during the production of Winter's War, he also got stymied by a more primitive form of transportation. In these bloopers, Hemsworth's scene partner is a horse. But his trusty steed just can't be controlled. In one outtake, the animal wanders off, and all Hemsworth can do is wave goodbye. In another, when he actually wants the horse to move, the animal won't budge at all.

Ghostbusters - The man's on fire

Before the cameras roll, actors get their scripts and carefully memorize their lines. Preparation is important for a good performance of course, but familiarization with the material is especially important for comedies—if actors don't know what's coming, they're going to laugh through and ruin every take. But what if everybody improvises? There are going to be some giggle-filled outtakes is what. Paul Feig directed the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot. He encourages actors to try out ideas that pop into their heads during filming, and he even throws out suggestions himself. Feig fed Hemsworth some lines in this take, and they're just too funny for him to repeat with a straight face.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Get down

Hemsworth maintains a pretty chill vibe on the sets of those Marvel movies, as do his co-stars. Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America) seem to be having just as good a time as Hemsworth making ridiculously fun superhero movies. This outtake captures the three heroic actors goofing around on set, talking about their love of dance, and showing off their almost-synchronized moves.

Thor: Ragnorak - Just your average guy

It's not quite a blooper, but Hemsworth starred in a short Thor film that presented the character (and actor) in a whole new light. To drum up interest in Thor: Ragnorak, or maybe just to exploit the comic chops Hemsworth revealed in recent comedies like Ghostbusters and Vacation, Marvel screened a comedic mockumentary at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con. It depicts Thor in less-heroic, more everyday-type situations, such as enjoying some "me time," volunteering at a school, and bothering his new roommate, an Australian office worker named Darryl.
