On the eve of GQ's Men Of The Year Awards 2018, we spoke exclusively to the new Man In Black and the current ambassador for Boss Bottled fragrance, Chris Hemsworth, to steal all his tips for acing formal dressing
 
At this year's GQ Men Of The Year Awards a few weeks ago, the black-tie looks were out in force.
 
From Jeff Goldblum's gold lamé tuxedo, to John Legend's purple velvet two-piece and Chadwick Boseman's foamy pistachio-green number from Louis Vuitton, never before had the world's leading men looked so, well, fancy.
 
Another leading style light at the awards was Mr Chris Hemsworth. Currently filming the new Men In Black films, his hair was close cropped and he looked resplendent in a midnight-blue shawl-lapel tuxedo.
 
On the eve of the awards, our Style Director Teo van den Broeke spoke to Hemsworth about his plans for his outfit and to glean a few of his top formal dressing tips. Enjoy.

Chris Hemsworth Admits He Almost Lost Out Thor to His Younger Brother Liam Hemsworth
 
Few actors in Hollywood have as much of a sense of humor about themselves as Chris Hemsworth. If you need any proof, just look at the Ghostbusters remake and the criminally under-appreciated comedy Vacation. But most of the world has gotten to know him as the titular character in Thor. Though it may be hard to believe for a leading man as jacked as Hemsworth, the sort of actor who is as much of a fixture on muscle magazines as professional athletes, the role almost didn't go to him, but to his younger brother Liam. The way Hemsworth tells it, his audition had gone so badly, he didn't hear back from producers for months while his brother was called in several times for the part. Eventually, a little sibling rivalry kicked in, and, when he was finally called back, he scored the role. The rest, as they say, is history. In an interview for W's Royals portfolio, Hemsworth recalls his start in acting, and pokes fun at his brother's sometimes gratuitous Instagram posts.
 
So tell me my favorite story, which is when you auditioned for Thor because I would have thought that you walked into the room and they said, 'Okay. That's it. We're done. He's the guy. There can't be anybody better than this.' But that's not what happened.
 
I remembered reading the breakdown for Thor and it said, 'Must be over 6'3" and 200 pounds,' and so on. I thought, 'Oh cool. This is the one thing that sort of fits me.' Most of the time, I'd have to lie about my height and say I was a little shorter and so on. I'd only get cast or auditioned for the football player or something. So I thought, 'Great. This is up my alley.' I came into the audition with Kenneth Branagh and thought I nailed it and then never heard anything back. Months went by and then my brother, my little brother, Liam, was in Australia and sent a tape across and he got a call back, then another call back and then was down to the last kind of four or five people for it. I remember sitting in Vancouver, shooting Cabin in the Woods with Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon. Both of them were looking at the trades at this sort of top five guys for Thor and saying, 'Why aren't you in the mix here? What happened?' I said, 'I don't know. I blew my audition I guess.' None of those guys got it. My manager then called up and said, 'You know, he's got an older brother. Can we bring him back in?' So I did an audition in Vancouver in this hotel room with my mum reading Anthony Hopkins' part. She must have nailed it because it got me back in the room and that second audition was a lot different than my first one. I came in kind of with a little, I guess, motivation and maybe frustration that my little brother had gotten further than me. It's a little family, sibling rivalry sort of kicked up in me. Then it moved pretty quick from there. It was cool.
 
Then I heard another great story that you have to tell, that Natalie Portman couldn't make a re-shoot, so your wife, Elsa Pataky was Natalie.
 
That's right. We were in Hong Kong doing re-shoots for Thor and I was actually shooting something else at the time and then I had to do this re-shoot. So we got called in and I get to the studio. The director comes up to me and he says, 'So, basically, it's just final kiss of the movie. You have to kiss Natalie, but she's not here, so we brought in these girls.' He said, 'I know this sounds awful or whatever, but he said, 'Do you want to pick one? Who do you want to kiss?' And they had these young ladies who were all wonderful and I said, 'My wife's around the corner. Let's get her in and she's the same height and I won't have to explain to her what I've been doing at work from having to kiss someone else.' So she came in and that's the final kiss in that movie is between my wife and I.
 
Your brother was in this movie where he had clothes made for him, The Dressmaker. There's a totally gratuitous scene where he's just standing there basically naked.
 
For the whole scene. I know. Shameful. That was probably his idea.
 
Well, he just posted a picture of himself that's very revealing the other day.
I saw that. What did he say? He used ice baths and short shorts. I was looking for the hidden sort of message in there, Liam. That sounds like a Friday night after you've had a few beers kind of Instagram post, doesn't it? And you wake up Saturday and go, 'No, I didn't, did I?'

Elsa Pataky, Tidelands, Australian Netflix show
Elsa Pataky on her starring role in new Australian Netflix show, Tidelands
“The good thing about Netflix is it’s so international too—so I can have an accent!”
 
Elsa Pataky, the Spanish actress wife of Chris Hemsworth, has begun filming her first Australian starring role, in the first locally-made Netflix original TV series which began production in Brisbane this week.
 
Pataky stars as a “darkly enigmatic and keenly intelligent leader of the Tidelanders; a woman unafraid to do anything to meet her ruthless ends” in Tidelands, an eight-part supernatural series set in a mysterious small fishing village inhabited by a commune outcasts. She stars alongside Charlotte Best, Madeleine Madden, Aaron Jakubenko, Mattais Inwood, Caroline Brazier and Peter O’Brien. In an exclusive interview Pataky told Vogue Australia she was excited about working in her adopted homeland, and had chosen the role partly because it was being filmed close to Byron Bay where the Hemsworth family live.
 
Pataky, who has starred in The Fast and the Furious franchise and alongside her husband in 12 Strong, said she had taken a hiatus from acting to raise her children—daughter India, 5, and four-year-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha—but “of course acting is my passion”. Pataky, who is a proud female role model, said she was also drawn to the strong female characters in the series. “I am so excited about this project,” she said. “I said no to a lot of projects to be with my kids, but suddenly—and maybe it’s destiny—I started thinking ‘I want to go back to work’ and suddenly this project came. My agent called me and said ‘I have this project it can be great, and it’s shooting in Gold Coast and it’s the first Netflix show in Australia’. And I read the script ... and I loved the project, the character is just amazing, so interesting to play, and the whole show comes in a really good moment because it’s about women. It’s a great cast and has great young people and the leads are two very strong women.
 
“So it’s a beautiful story, and it’s a great role. And the good thing about Netflix is it’s so international too—so I can have an accent! For me it’s great, I shoot in Brisbane which is close to my house, so I can take the kids to school, and then go to work, it’s so convenient.”

Elsa Pataky on Her 7-Year Marriage to Chris Hemsworth
Elsa Pataky on Her 7-Year Marriage to Chris Hemsworth: 'It Was Sometimes Difficult'
Elsa Pataky on Her 7-Year Marriage to Chris Hemsworth: "It Was Sometimes Difficult"
 
Elsa Pataky knows a thing or two about how to make a marriage work. She recently spoke to Vogue Australias and opened up about her seven-year romance with Chris Hemsworth and how they "make it work." "We did everything very quickly – I don't know how we survived as a couple," Elsa said. "We were married and then a year after we had kids. It puts a lot of pressure on a marriage, but we came out good because there is a lot of love between us and we are very strong personalities but love each other so much. We make it work."
 
This isn't the first time Elsa has opened up about marriage obstacles. Back in January, the 12 Strong actress sat down with Elle Australia and opened up about her seven-year romance with Chris Hemsworth. The candid interview touched upon everything from how the couple made their relationship work on the brink of Chris's box office success to how she felt conflicted between motherhood and her career after becoming a mom.
 
"It's interesting how you can be a successful woman who has been working her whole life, and then you have kids, and suddenly your career isn't as important, and you don't appreciate it as much, and you just think, 'What am I doing? I have been fighting all my life for this, and now I don't know if I really want it?'" Elsa shared.
 
"It's unfair in a way because I don't think men go through that. But when you become a mum, everything that was important goes into second position. You change a lot. You mature, you see life differently and learn so many things."
 
As far as how the two managed to maintain a strong front throughout the years, Elsa got refreshingly honest and admitted they didn't. "I think any time you start a family without knowing each other that much, it can be complicated," she said. "He was very young to be starting a family, and at the same time he was juggling that with his career and it was sometimes difficult, there was so much going on."
 
So, who is Naomi Osaka? Here's what you should know about this 20-year-old U.S. Open tennis star that's carving her rightful place among the professional tennis elite.
 
The 34-year-old hunk, however, did keep his priorities in check. "He was always trying to be the best dad and has never failed to make me feel like his family is the most important thing to him and [going through that] is how we've become so strong together," Elsa recalled.
 
Just last year, the Thor star also admitted that his career put a strain on his marriage. "My wife and I fell in love, had kids, didn't really see each other for a few years, then fell back in love," he told GQ magazine in October. "In terms of work, she's certainly given up more than I have. She'd like me to step back and be at home with the kids more, and of course, I want that too. But I feel like I'm at this crucial point in my career — I've just got to set up for longevity or I'll slip off."

Chris Hemsworth One of the Highest Paid Actors in Hollywood
Chris Hemsworth on How Being One of the Highest Paid Actors in Hollywood Is Affecting His Family
Chris Hemsworth on How Being One of the Highest Paid Actors in Hollywood Is Affecting His Family
 
Chris Hemsworth is not only the physical embodiment of Marvel’s Thor, the god of thunder, a frontrunner in the celebrity Chris ranking, and one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, he's also a concerned, doting father of three young children.
 
The actor revealed in an interview with GQ Australia that his big Hollywood paychecks, however, do not always sit right with him as they pertain to his family. Hemsworth is a staple in the Avengers franchise, as well as Snow White and the Huntsman, which brought in $31.5 million in 2017. That massive amount of income even landed the actor on the Forbes list of highest paid actors for that year. Still, Hemsworth admitted that, with regard to the money, “I feel gross about it.”
 
“I remember saving up for a surfboard when I was younger,” he explained in his GQ Australia interview. “The surfboard was 600 bucks, and I saved up for a whole year with Dad’s help. I didn’t even want to surf on it for fear of damaging it. It taught me so many lessons about appreciation and working hard for something."
 
That memory of saving up for a big-ticket item and treating the object with respect is a feeling the actor said he wishes to pass on to his children. “When I think about my kids, I don’t want them to miss that joy. Elsa [Pataky, his wife] and I talk a lot about how we instill that same appreciation and respect for things,” Hemsworth said.
 
“I don’t want them to feel like they’re privileged in any way,” he said, even though, by the very nature of their father’s status as one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors and the perks that they are afforded due to his profession, Hemsworth’s children will live a privileged lifestyle. The actor admitted he is afraid of how their actions may be influenced by the amount of money their parents earn. “The fact that we have money and their parents are famous, that somehow they’re special, that scares me because we grew up with no money,” he said, recalling his upbringing in Australia with his brothers Liam and Luke.
 
Hemsworth also admitted that he thinks his concern for raising his children may have even cost him some roles in the past. “There are times when I’ve thought, Wow, because having kids is more important to me, some of my roles have suffered. There’re definitely a couple of films I could’ve put way more energy into but I was like, ‘No, I’d rather be with my kids,’ ” he told the magazine.

A Bun, also referred to as a “top knot,” is a hairstyle featuring a ponytail or bundle of hair prominently placed high in the back-center of the head.
 
Chris Hemsworth is, first and foremost, a father.
 
The Bad Times at the El Royale actor appears on the cover of GQ's September issue (on newsstands Tuesday), and in associate editor Lauren Larson's profile, he opens up about leaving Hollywood behind. Fed up with the paparazzi in L.A., and despite Elsa Pataky's initial reservations, Hemsworth's family relocated to Australia in 2014. "Both trips we did, it was like pouring rain. And she was like, 'I don't know what the big fuss is.' Then I said, 'Let's do a trip up to Byron Bay,' and we get off the plane and it's raining. I'm like, 'Oh, my God. I'm not selling it,'" Hemsworth recalls. "And she instantly went, 'No, there's something different about this place. It is a very special place.' She went, 'This could be it. It could be the best decision we've made.'"
 
Hemsworth and Pataky will sometimes share pictures of their children on social media, but the actors are careful not to show their faces. It's a delicate balance, Hemsworth says: "The social media side of it is just trying to work out: How do you keep up with the times?' You see that Sylvester Stallone has an Instagram account, and you kind of go, 'This is the world we're in.'" So, whenever Hemsworth does share shots of his kids, his 20 million Instagram followers go wild. As Taika Waititi, who directed Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok, explains, "In the few and rare times that he does, it's genuine. It's, 'Here's this amazing moment when my daughter was surfing!'" Plus, Hemsworth bristles at the notion he's "selling" his private life for likes. "The exploitation is something I'm very wary of. We've been offered things like, 'Advertise such-and-such and have dinner with your family," the 35-year-old actor says. "There's no way."
 
The point is, Hemsworth and Pataky want to retain control over how much of their private life they share with the public. And while the paparazzi attention has lessened since they relocated, it hasn't gone away entirely. For example, Hemsworth was recently out with his kids and the paparazzi appeared. Hemsworth ignored them—until one of his sons removed his bathing suit. "He's naked, and I look over, and they're still shooting. I ran over, and they knew. I just very pointedly and definitely said, 'Don't you dare,'" he says. "I was close to destroying the camera."
 
It wasn't always like this. In his early days in Hollywood, Hemsworth recalls, "I remember trying to be Colin Farrell. Thinking, 'People love the bad boy.' Going out and being sort of reckless. But no one cared. There wasn't the presence of paparazzi, nor the presence of social media, nor the immediacy of all these platforms." Thor—and the fame that came with it—changed everything.
 
Making movies is still an important part of Hemsworth's life, but it's not his end all, be all. "I really do feel a sense of ease for the first time in years. I don't mean that as an assessment of my achievements," says Hemsworth, who is currently filming the next Men in Black movie with Tessa Thompson. "I just mean I'm content with what's going on and relaxed and open about it."
 
But make no mistake: Hemsworth is still as competitive as ever.
 
Recently, at his daughter's school, Hemsworth competed in a dads race—and, to no one's surprise, came out on top. "There was just this wave of nirvana. I turn around, and I go, 'Where's my daughter? Where is she?' And she's like, 'Dad, did you win?' And I'm like, 'Did I win? You didn't see it?!' They gave me a sticker. A first-place sticker," he says. proudly. Pataky, who missed the race due to work commitments, enjoyed his enthusiasm. "I've never seen him so excited, not even about getting a big job. It was probably one of the best things that has happened to him in his life, which is funny, right?" the 12 Strong star says, laughing. "All the things he has achieved..."
