Chris Hemsworth claims Kristen Stewart experiences a “different sort of fame” because Twilight has “hysterical” fans.
The Australian hunk appeared alongside the actress in Snow White and the Huntsman. Chris feels relieved that despite appearing in hit movies such as Thor and Avengers Assemble, he can still maintain some normality in his life. The star has sympathy for Kristen, who hits headlines all over the world for both her career and private life.
“I think it’s a different sort of fame. With the utmost respect, Twilight’s certainly a teen audience… Sort of hysterical kind of fanbase, you know? Whereas Avengers is across all ages and people just love the films – and it’s a little different from what she experiences,” he told the latest edition of British magazine Empire. “I am, in my everyday life, most of the time, not looking like Thor. Whereas the character she played in Twilight and her walking down the street, they’re pretty similar – they’re both human and relatable.
“I think for that reason, it’s when the character is even more relatable and closer to who you are in your everyday life, the line gets blurred. The Avengers was a different thing and we certainly didn’t have hundreds of people outside our hotels like they do.”
Chris can go out without being swamped by fans if he isn’t sporting his famous long blonde locks. He shaved his head after shooting Thor and Avengers Assemble, but when his hair is longer and he has a beard he finds it difficult to remain anonymous in public.
“If I get recognised by people in the street, it’s to do with Thor,” he explained. “When I was shaved and had darker hair, it was like, ‘This is cool; I can get on with my life.’ Then my hair is blond again and I have the beard and it’s like I’ve walked down the street in a Halloween costume!”
