Chris Hemsworth compares Hollywood Walk of Fame tribute to childhood memory

LONDON - Chris Hemsworth has compared getting his handprints cemented onto the Hollywood Walk of Fame to a mock attempt as a kid.

The Avengers: Endgame star recalled the sweet childhood memory over the weekend, days after he and his castmates in the Marvel blockbuster received their sidewalk tributes in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old actor- who portrays Thor - tweeted on Sunday: "I remember many years ago carving my name into wet concrete on the sidewalk outside my grandmas place, little did I know that years on those skills would come in handy!"

"Honoured to share this moment with my Avenging mates on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."

The Bad Times at the El Royale star was joined by Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) and Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige in receiving the special honour.

Meanwhile, Hemsworth recently admitted he has no idea if he will ever play the Norse god again.

He said: "There will come a day. Whether it's now or in the future, I don't know. ... Who knows what the sort of future holds. I don't know, there could be remakes, sequels, prequel - who knows?"

Hemsworth first starred as the Marvel superhero in the 2011 movie Thor and has gone on to portray him in seven movies in total, including Endgame and called the role even more special than a "one in a lifetime" opportunity.

He said: "The people I met working on these films truly became family. It's not even once in a career, or once in a lifetime, it's sort of, I don't know, once in however many careers that something like this [happens].

"This has been a very nostalgic kind of vibe to this press tour and all of us quite often kind of pausing going, 'Wow, this will never happen again, not for us, and who knows if it will happen again in what generation.'

"I can keep talking about the kind of, how special it all is and the insanity of it but it's, I don't know, gratitude is something that I constantly feel about the whole experience."

However, Hemsworth recently admitted he will not miss Thor's "uncomfortable" outfit.

He said: "The suit keeps changing it does and each time it's not a comfortable suit either it's the most heavy, awkwardly constructed piece of clothing you can imagine. Obviously, there's a familiarity stepping back into the character but what's give me the most joy has been being able to recreate the character each time.

"And being able to show in particularly with Thor: Ragnarok to kind of really totally shift the direction of where it was headed."
