- Chris Hemsworth spoke about his love for Tom Hiddleston and Tom Holland in an interview with IMDb.
- Hemsworth said that it’s “impossible” to pick a favorite between his two Marvel costars.
- “Tom Hiddleston is like an older brother and Tom Holland is like my younger brother,” he said.
Chris Hemsworth, 38, said he can’t pick a favorite between his Marvel costars Tom Hiddleston, 41, and Tom Holland, 26, because he adores both.
“Tom Hiddleston is like an older brother and Tom Holland is like my younger brother,” Hemsworth said when being asked about his top Tom in the MCU during IMDb’s Burning Questions. “It’s impossible to pick between two of your mates. I don’t like that game – I love them both.”
Hemsworth and Hiddleston met through their roles as siblings Thor and Loki in the MCU. They first costarred in the 2011 standalone film about the God of Thunder, titled “Thor.”
In an interview with GQ in 2021, Hiddleston said that he “made a very fast and firm friendship” with Hemsworth.
“We were playing brothers in this enormous thing and it felt like we were brothers by the end, in some way,” Hiddleston said.
Hiddleston said that costarring in the movie with Hemsworth and becoming global stars at the same time created a bond between them.
“He was the only other person who understood what the experience had been like,” the British actor said. “He was the only other person who — when I came back and friends were like, ‘How was it?’ — it was always hard to explain and there’s one person who knew and that’s Chris. We’ve always shared that, really, because it’s kind of a life-changing moment for both of us.”
The two actors went on to costar in several more Marvel films: “The Avengers,” “Thor: The Dark World,” ‘Thor: Ragnarok,” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Meanwhile, Hemsworth met Holland prior to the young actor’s MCU debut as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. The two stars appeared in Ron Howard’s drama “In the Heart of the Sea.” The film was released in 2015, a year before Holland’s appearance in “Captain America: Civil War.”
Although Hemsworth’s character wasn’t part of “Civil War,” he and Holland later costarred in “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
In a 2019 interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Hemsworth said that he “did what he could” to help Holland land the role of the teen web-slinger.
“As they were casting him for Spider-Man, I did what I could do and made a call and said he’s one of the most talented people I’ve worked with and has such a big heart and appreciation,” Hemsworth said. “We have a great friendship, it’s a good mutual respect.”
