It's not easy being Chris Hemsworth.

The poor guy not only had to strip down to show off his incredibly hot body in Vacation, but he also had to parade around in one scene in a pair of tight underwear stuffed with an enormous fake penis.

His character, a weatherman married to Audrey Griswold (Leslie Mann), is quite the stud.

"It was embarrassing," the Thor star told me last night at the Vacation premiere in L.A. "It was hilarious and probably more for other people than me…I was intimidated by that set and scene."

Co-directors and writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein revealed that Hemsworth had a say in just how large his faux manhood would be.

"We went to a room with him and he modeled a couple of options for us," Goldstein said.

"It was the weirdest couple of hours," Daley said.

And yes, they chose the biggest one.

Hemsworth remembered that day with a big smile. "It's part of character development," he said, adding, "We went bold, ya know—big and bold."

They sure did.

Ed Helms said he wasn't surprised by the mammoth prosthetic. "I knew exactly how big it would be because it was molded off of me," the funny man cracked. "That's how we do it, [but] I had no idea his abs would be that amazing. I actually washed my clothes on his abs."

So where is naughty prop?

Christina Applegate guessed, "The Smithsonian."

Vacation is in theaters tomorrow, July 29.
