Chris Hemsworth - Chris Hemsworth Is A Cautious Driver

Actor Chris Hemsworth was out of his comfort zone playing motor racing ace James Hunt in new movie Rush as he hates driving fast.

The Australian heart-throb steps into the Formula 1 legend's shoes in the film, which tells the story of Hunt's track battles with his arch rival Niki Lauda in their 1970s heyday.

But the role was a tough one for Hemsworth to pull off - he hates travelling at speed and even urges his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, to slow down when she is at the wheel.

Hemsworth tells British magazine Seven, "(Our car) has a babyseat and surfboard in the back, it's a pretty mellow thing. I go, 'Slow down, what's the rush, there's a red light.' She says, 'Shut up, when did you become a driving instructor?'"
