Chris Hemsworth says naked butt scene in Thor: Love and Thunder was a “dream” - “It was 10 years in the making”

Marvel’s mighty Thor goes half nude in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, which is hitting theatres in July. The upcoming Thor installment, which marks Natalie Portman’s return to the MCU, has a “dream” sequence of Chris Hemsworth who bares it all in the Taika Waititi-directed feature. “It was 10 years in the making that scene — kind of a dream of mine,” Hemsworth told Variety during Thursday’s Thor: Love and Thunder premiere at El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. “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.” As the outlet notes, when asked how the revealing moment came together, Waititi said it was important to him to highlight Hemsworth’s physique. “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!” The moment was teased in the film's trailer. The butt reveal scene also marks the first time a Marvel rating cites "partial nudity." However, it wasn’t the first time he had to bare it all on screen. “I had had that out in ‘Rush’ many years ago,” Hemsworth added. “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.” Thor: Love & Thunder is scheduled for a release on July 7 in India.
