Chris Hemsworth Says He’s a Feminist: “Oh Yeah, For Sure”

Chris says he believes in feminism and that his own mother has positively affected his relationship with other females.

C hris was asked the very dangerous feminism question in a new interview – not everyone gets it right – but Chris put together a pretty decent answer. He explains that his own mom is a strong feminist figure and he has a believe in balance between genders:

“Oh yeah, for sure. My mum’s a big feminist. I think that my views on things, as far as respect for women and so on, came from my mum. My dad has a very balanced and respectful view on a lot of things too. They were huge positive influences in my life.”

He adds that he has worked with many strong women in Hollywood and has been impressed with their strength. He believes things still need to change in the industry and he hopes his latest film ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’ is doing its part to promote stronger female characters:

“The strength of it was in these three women [Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron] and their performances, the heart and soul that they’ve blended through their characters. I think the balance has been tipped for a long time heavily in the men’s direction. There are seven to eight male superheroes and one female in there. This is the opposite. It’s exciting to be part of something like that. But it’s a funny conversation to even have, because of course it should be that way. Of course it should be equal.”

He’s been particularly impressed with Jessica Chastain:

“I remember the first thing she said was, ‘Do I get to kick ass?’ Jessica’s just bought such a live performance and character. [There’s] great fire and chemistry between the two characters, which is full of fun and it’s feisty. She’s probably the strongest one in the film, or the strongest out of the two of us. She’s great.”
