Th-woar! Topless Chris Hemsworth shows off his body as he takes a dip Down Under
Chris Hemsworth is back in his native Australia promoting latest film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
When the actor took a dip in the hotel pool, it was obvious he was no ordinary Joe.
After some splashing about, the action hero emerged from his dip fairly gleaming.
Mirror, mirror: Chris Hemsworth was quite likely the fairest man around at his Sydney hotel yesterday
The 28-year-old used the hotel”s pool and spa after a day spent surfing his native salt water beach Saturday.
The Aussie star was born in Melbourne, but met his family in Sydney while promoting the movie this weekend in the capital.

Plenty of exercise: Chris had a heavy day of surfing and swimming
While surfing in Maroubra, he was initially caught in a rip tide and wiped out.
He soon regained his sea legs, though, and charged through the waves in the eastern Sydney beachtown, his blond hair whipping across his face.
Grinning ear-to-ear as he paddled outin a wetsuit, it was clear to onlookers it wasn”t the first time out on the waters for Chris.

The muscled actor, who spent much of his childhood in a little Aboriginal community in the Outback, called Bulman, had only touched down in Sydney hours before hitting the surf.
And it was understandable why Chris could hardly contain his grin in between the rips. He certainly has a lot to be happy about.
In addition to catapulting to the topof the list of Hollywood”s hottest actors, Chris became a father to hisfirst child, daughter India Rose, just last month.
Sadly his absence from London means he will miss his first Father”s Day with his little girl and his wife, Elsa Pataky.
