Chris Hemsworth, The Graham Norton Show


Chris Hemsworth is easy on the eyes, and that statement proves to be true for a wide variety of people.

The hunky star was a guest on British talk show The Graham Norton Show Friday, where he revealed that he's spent some time in prison! OK, well, not really.

Hemsworth did go to prison, but he didn't actually do anything to land him there. The actor explained he went for a visit to research for his film Blackhat, but what he experienced while behind bars is what makes this story so memorable, because whaddya know? Inmates can't help but admire his rugged good looks, either!

"I was researching a film, and we had to go in and basically see what the inside of a prison looks like, speak with prisoners who were willing to talk to us," he explained, adding that at the time he was still rocking his long, blond Thor hair in a ponytail, but attempted to go incognito with the help of a hat.

"The wardens said 'You can't wear your hat,' and so on, and I said, 'OK no worries.' And I thought, 'Oh s--t, they're going to know who I am.' Then I thought, 'No, they don't get Thor in here, they're not going to watch movies,' and, I don't know, I'd never been to prison. I assumed that."

SPOILER ALERT: Apparently, they do get Thor in prison.

"And the moment I started walking through the cells...I just start getting heckled," Hemsworth shared. "It's like, 'Yo yo, Thor's here, man. Yo Thor's here, yo Thor, Thor! Where's your hammer man?' And I'm trying to blend in, doing 'research,' and I'm just getting heckled left and right. 'Yo come spend some time in my cell, baby!'"

LOL! Well, can ya blame 'em?
