Chris Hemsworth was a ''daughter'' to his mother.

The Australian hunk - whose brothers are fellow Hollywood actors Liam and Luke - was always the most sensitive of his family and was never afraid to open up to his mum.

He said: ''My mum would probably say, 'Chris was always the daughter out of my three boys'. I was just far better at talking to my mum about things, while my brothers kept stuff to themselves.''

Chris married Elsa Pataky - with who he has 10-month old daughter India Rose - in 2010 and says his spouse is in control in their household.

He said: ''I'm lucky to have met someone who's there to keep me in check. And she certainly does...''

The 29-year-old star has landed lead roles in superhero films including 'The Avengers' and 'Thor' and admits he loves getting into character for the action-packed parts because he can feel like a kid again.

Chris explained to more! magazine: ''Don't get swept up in the size and scale of it all. As a kid, I ran around the house pretending to be a superhero, and now I feel very lucky to be doing it as a job.''
