On watching yourself onscreen: "I just recently saw a close-to-finished version of Thor. I was impressed. It is often difficult to watch yourself onscreen, especially 60-feet high. As an actor, it is an uncomfortable experience. But this is one of the first times I was able to get lost in it as an audience member. There were so many impressive elements—from the special effects to the story to the individual characters. I really had a great time."

On movies based on comic books: "You have these colorful and vivid worlds and they can either be amazingly entertaining or come across campy. Every superhero film has that challenge. Having someone like Kenneth Branagh direct [Thor] was a smart way to avoid any campiness. He really is an actor-director and comes from a Shakespearean background."

We always considered those gay urban legends about how to tell a man's dick size by looking at his nose or measuring the space between certain fingers to be a load of hogwash - and we've done the research.

Do we have your attention now, minions? There's a reason we're bringing this up (and it's not the reason you think).

There's ANOTHER gay urban legend that you can always tell who the straight guys are in the gym because they'll have overdeveloped upper bodies and underdeveloped chicken legs. There's a tiny grain of truth to that because the best asses in a gym almost always belong (quelle surprise) to the gays. Anyway, that was our first thought upon viewing these pics: "Welp. He's straight." Not that his legs look anything but fine to us. He is, after all, the man who inspired Thursday Thighs in the first place. It's just that they are considerably less pumped up than his upper body is, based on the last year's worth of pics. In fact, we think that may explain the styling here. His upper body bulk is mostly camouflaged by layering. Although, chances are he's scaling down anyway, because the more muscled an actor is, the more limited his career will be.

As for the fashion aspects, the clothes look good, but why is he looking suspiciously off to the left or right in every picture? It's making it feel less like an editorial and more like a tense hostage situation.
