There’s something kind of wonderful about Chris Hemsworth, isn’t there? His obvious good looks and beefy body aside, he just seems like a sweet, funny guy who relishes his work and adores his wife and three kids. It’s all-around qualities like that that score a dude the Sexiest Man Alive title.
The actor, who is currently promoting The Huntsman: Winter’s War (a.k.a. The Movie That Broke Twihards’ Hearts Forever), revealed a hilarious tidbit about his four-year-daughter, India Rose, while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. India Rose is probably going to be mortified in a few years but for now, it’s adorable.
“My daughter’s kind of envious of my [two-year-old twin] boys at the moment,” he said. “She came to me the other day and said, ‘Papa, I want one of those things that [my sons] Sasha and Tristan have … the things in between their legs.”
First off, Papa? We can’t even. Secondly? Amazing.
Hemsworth wasn’t sure how to handle the situation and tried telling his daughter, “girls have breasts,” but she snapped back, “I don’t want breasts! … I really want one … I want a penis!” Girl, you have no idea.
Things could’ve gotten super-awkward but Chris came up with the perfect answer that proves he should teach fellow daddies a course in how to talk to their kids.
“You know what? You can be whatever you wanna be.”
Damn right. And you know that’s not a load of BS from Hemsworth, who noted that his Huntsman co-stars, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt, were not just attractive but also intelligent, talented women. He adds that his character, the titular Huntsman, is “rescued by these very powerful women” and that he wants his own daughter to live in a world where women are “in charge of their own destiny and they’re not waiting for the prince to rescue them and they can take over the world.”
OK, forget fellow daddies. Can Hemsworth teach the rest of the world how it should be? It’d be a much better place if we all had his mindset.
