Robert Downey Jr., aka Iron Man, had a hilarious reaction to meeting Chris Hemsworth, aka Thor, on the set of The Avengers.
Actor Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye, said during an interview with the Armchair Expert podcast that Robert Downey Jr. thought Chris Hemsworth was so tall and handsome that he suggested they attack him during his first day on the set of The Avengers.
“If you’ve ever played any sport, it was like joining a new team. I knew Robert Downey Jr., I knew Scarlett Johansson, I just didn’t know Chris Hemsworth.”
“He’s amazing, but we didn’t know, right? On the first day, we were waiting in our suits. It even looked like Halloween. We were excited but also feeling ridiculous.”
“I feel like we all knew each other to some degree, except for Hemsworth, because he came from Australia. He was the tallest, the most handsome. Downey Jr. said: ‘We have to break his legs. We have to get him out of here. This guy is very handsome. He’s too tall, too charming, fuck that guy.’”
In the movies, Chris Hemsworth returns for a new adventure as Thor
