Chris is a Dad!
Thor welcomes his first daughter
Before he was Thor, Chris Hemsworth was tearing up the dance floor! American audiences know the actor for his more recent roles, he was already a star in his native Australia. Audiences there got to know the star in a more personal way on a certainly reality competition show.

With The Avengers continuing to dominate the box office, Celebuzz wanted to show another side to the big screen hero! Namely, his Samba side.

While he seems perfectly comfortable running around in a big red cape, he says dancing wasn’t really his thing:

“I wasn’t much of a dancer. You know, down at the pubs with your mates and a few beers having a dance is a little different than the ballroom. It doesn’t really translate,” he told Jay Leno.

Chris appeared on the 2006 season of Australia’s Dancing With The Stars. He actually didn’t do that bad, lasting about halfway through the competition. He was the sixth personal eliminated. Former AFL player Anthony Koutoufides won that year.

At the time, Chris was best known for the Aussie TV series Home & Away, which he starred on until 2007.
