Chris Hemsworth - Chris Hemsworth Bored By Film Computer Training

Chris Hemsworth was glad he has made it as a movie star after taking tiresome lessons in computers for his new film Cyber.

The Australian actor sat down with a technology lecturer to get to grips with his role as a hacker in the new Michael Mann thriller.

After several hours of staring at a computer screen, Hemsworth was thankful he didn't opt for a desk job in real life.

He tells Details magazine, "I did two months (of lessons). This computer teacher with a Ph.D. from Ucla would come into this little room and give me lessons in Unix commands (shortcuts) and whatnot.

"It was exciting the first day or two, then I was like, 'Oh no, this is why I didn't take a desk job'. I can't say I can hack into your Swiss bank account, but I can pretend to."
