Extreme hottie alert!
Australian hunk Chris Hemsworth proved he is quite the sight for "Thor" eyes (forgive the pun) as he emerged from the ocean following a recent bout of surfing.
The 34-year-old father-of-three was spotted enjoying some down time on the beach in Byron Bay, Australia last week with his father Craig who, by the way, is also great shape. Like father, like son!
And when it comes to beach life, Chris just can't get enough.
On April 28, he was back at it again, showing off his surfing prowess during an outing with some pals.
We're no experts, but after studying his fine form, it looks like Chris continues to have some serious surfing skills.
The Aussie actor, who is married to Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, recently told Australian news outlet news.com.au that he doesn't let the obvious risks involved with surfing in Byron Bay—where he lives with his family—stop him from doing what he loves.
As he explained, "There's a lot of shark activity where I am and certainly you think about it a lot more than I ever did in the past, but you're in their backyard and that's the risk you take, but there is something going on and I think more research and education needs to be put in to it to understand why."
The actor also told GQ Magazine, "I've surfed a couple of times where I've been pinned under a reef and I'm right at the end of my breath, and there's nothing else you want to see more than the surface," Hemsworth revealed. "I've surfed most of my life and without a doubt there's been sharks in the water when I've been there. I've never seen a shark, but there's no doubt there would've been one around," he added.
Still, it's pretty clear Chris is in his element when he's riding a wave. It feels like home to him. When Esquire magazine asked him what comes naturally to him in life, the actor's response is fitting. "Surfing," he says. "I'd nearly always rather be surfing."
The actor also spoke to Wonderwall recently about what he isn't willing to do, and that's losing weight for a role. After dropping 33 pounds in four weeks for his role in the 2015 survival-drama "In the Heart of the Sea," which is based on the real-life story that inspired Herman Melville's novel "Moby Dick," he says he can't do it again.
"I don't think I'd lose it again, no, because it's just too exhausting," the 32-year-old father of three told Wonderwall.com at a press junket for his film "The Huntsman: Winter's War" at Universal Studios Hollywood in April 2016. Plus, he added, "It's not very much fun to not eat."
We couldn't agree more!
