One hunky hunts­man

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - E Guide Movies -

AUS­TRALIAN star Chris Hemsworth in­sists it would be pretty unattrac­tive if his Snow White and the Hunts­man char­ac­ter had black­ened teeth, as he talks about his look for the manly role.

Hemsworth plays Eric the Hunts­man in the up­com­ing fan­tasy film and has joked that some of the cos­tume ideas sug­gested for the char­ac­ter were way off the mark.

‘‘ He was a sol­dier pre­vi­ously and that was his back story. I thought, ‘ Maybe he’s trav­elled across this fic­tional world and trained with dif­fer­ent peo­ple’.

‘‘ I had this hook about the samu­rai, and that was where some of the in­flu­ences with the axe came in.

‘‘ Even the hair I wanted to pull back into a pony­tail, for a samu­rai feel again,’’ he told film in­dus­try web­site Col­lider.

‘‘ For the most part he was a dirty messy drunk. I don’t think he’d show­ered in a while.

‘‘ At one point there was talk of black­en­ing his teeth, and I was like, ‘ Hang on, if there’s got to be any kind of ro­mance in here, that’s pretty unattrac­tive’,’’ he laughed.

Hemsworth sports a tough leather en­sem­ble for his bat­tle scenes in the film.

The Phillip Is­land lo­cal will soon re­turn to Australia with Twi­light star Kris­ten Ste­wart to launch the much- an­tic­i­pated film.

The pair will walk the red car­pet at the Aus­tralian pre­miere of the film in Syd­ney on June 19 with di­rec­tor Ru­pert San­ders.

It’s not known if he will bring his wife, Elsa Pataky, and new­born daugh­ter In­dia.

The home tour will be a wel­come break for the ex Home and Away star, who is fast be­com­ing one of Hol­ly­wood’s most pop­u­lar lead­ing men.

His lat­est block­buster, The Avengers, has topped the box of­fice, earn­ing more than $ 1 bil­lion world­wide.
