Chris Hemsworth has only one person to thank for his role in Rush…his wife.
HipHollywood sat down with the Thor actor during the press junket for Rush, where he revealed that his wife, actress Elsa Pataky, was instrumental in helping him get the part.
“I sent an audition tape in which my wife filmed for me and was the director”, explained Hemsworth. “She kept sorta pushing me, going no, no I don’t believe it, no that’ not it… and finally we got the one we liked and sent it.”
Directed by Ron Howard the film focuses on the rivalry between Formula 1 race car drivers James Hunt (played by Hemsworth) and Nikki Lauda (played by Daniel Bruhl).
Rush is in theaters September 27th.
