Kids say the darndest things!

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have their hands full with daughter India, 4, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, 2. When Chris appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday to promote Universal Pictures' The Huntsman: Winter's War (in theaters Friday), Chris said his three kids "get along, absolutely," although India is starting to pick up on their differences. "Siblings kind of have their moments," he said. "My daughter is kind of envious of my boys at the moment."

"She came to me the other day and she was like, 'You know, papa, I want one of those things that Sasha and Tristan have.' I'm like, 'What do you mean?'" Chris recalled. "She was like, 'You know, the things in between the legs that you have.' I was like 'Oh, um...Well, you see, girls…'"

The 32-year-old-actor was caught off-guard. "My brain's like, 'How do we handle this?' I was like, 'Girls have breasts.' 'I don't want breasts!' I was like, 'OK. Um...' She goes, 'I really want one.' I was like, 'A penis?' She was like, 'I want a penis!'" he said. "I was like, 'Oh, OK. Um...'" After some thought, he decided now wasn't the best time to have that talk. "I was like, 'You know what? You can be whatever you want to be.' And she goes, 'Thanks, dad!' Runs off to the playground and that was it," he said. "I'll have to pick that conversation up in a few years time."

"You'll have to see if she brings it up again because she probably is just envious of it now," host Ellen DeGeneres said.

"There'll be a pill for it in a few years," Chris joked. "She can probably have one. She can grow one."

Ellen fired back, "I think there is a pill for that, actually. I think a lot of men take that pill."

Cute kid stories aside, Chris also told Ellen that he can't wait to show India his latest movie, which stars Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron. "It's a very modern take on the fairy tale world. It's not the damsel in distress being rescued by the princes. It's me being rescued most of the film by these very powerful women. I thought, 'Wow, this is something I want my daughter to see,' which is women [who are] in charge of their own destiny. They're not waiting for the prince to rescue them. They can take over the world or lead armies and so on," he said. "It was great, and I think there's not enough of it, and there should be more."
