The two stars who intimidated Chris Hemsworth

CHRIS Hemsworth - who, along with Pratt, Evans and Pine, make up the famous Chris club - recently revealed which of his namesakes he was most nervous to meet.

"The first time I really met Chris Pratt - and went on set with him and the Guardians - I was weirdly shaken," Hemsworth told Elle for their September issue.

"I don't know why. He's just so charismatic. And good at what he does.

But Pratt, 38, who recently announced his split from wife Anna Faris, wasn't the only star who intimidated Thor - Cate Blanchett did as well.

"She calls you on your s**t straightaway, which is intimidating," the actor said of his Thor: Ragnarok co-star, 48.

"There's quite a feeling of wanting to impress her. She's like, 'I'm a human being. Act normal'. Before you know it, you're drinking and telling stories and cracking jokes. She has a wild sense of humour."

The Avengers star and father-of-three also told the mag he worked as a babysitter when he first moved to Hollywood and that, unlike Evans who shaves his chest as part of playing Captain America, Thor's powers come from his hair extensions.
