One hunky huntsman
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.
