Chris Hemsworth’s accident

Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth, 31, accidentally stabbed himself when he was younger. The Thor star recalled an incident in his childhood where he mistook his hand for a fish while swimming. He explained: ”I remember the sales guy asking, ‘Well, what are you gonna use that [knife] for?’ I said, ‘Fishing?’ And that was the security test. Later, I went snorkelling in this swimming hole. Thought I stabbed a fish, but I stabbed myself in the hand instead. I still have a vivid memory of what that felt like. It wasn’t alarmingly bad, but it was like, ‘Oh, wow. I’ve just done something here.”’

Meanwhile, the actor also admitted that he has no ”empathy” for his younger brother, Liam Hemsworth, 24, despite being just as ”reckless” when he was younger. He said: ”I’ve watched Liam do things I did at his age, like being in relationships he shouldn’t be in, or being reckless just to prove a point. And I had no empathy. My mom had to remind me I was the same way.”

Chris praised his older brother, Luke Hemsworth, 34, for helping to save his career. He told GQ magazine: ”Back when I was still on the [Australian soap ‘Home and Away’], I became incredibly insecure and full of anxiety because I didn’t know if I was any good. Yet I wanted it so bad. I spent years being angsty, constantly telling people I wasn’t just part of a soap opera, that I was a real artist. And I remember Luke sort of snapping, telling me to shut up, that he was sick of hearing it.”
