And yet, the 22-year-old actor doesn't see himself as a sex symbol. "I don't consider myself a heartthrob in any way," Hemsworth told reporters at The Hunger Games premiere in L.A. Monday. "I'm just pinching myself. I'm truly fortunate to be a part of this whole process."
Hemsworth, who walked the red carpet with girlfriend of two years Miley Cyrus, added: "I'm trying to take it day by day and I'm constantly pinching myself. I just feel like I am part of a crazy ride right now."
The actor said he hopes fans "like" the film, in theaters March 23 -- but not because of his involvement.
