Hollywood currently has an abundance of really good looking guys named Chris. There are so many of them that it's's honestly difficult to keep track. Which is the best looking Chris? Chris Hemsworth is not going to answer that question. During a recent interview, Chris Hemsworth was asked the unanswerable question comparing the good looks of Chris Pine, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, and himself. While the Thor actor answers the question without hesitation, the answer he gives isn't strictly fair. Apparently, the best looking Chris is Hemsworth's 12 Strong co-star Michael Pena.
The question from Xilla comes as a follow-up to when Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds was recently asked which of the three Marvel actors named Chris was the hottest. Reynolds couldn't choose either, making a joke about wanting "three scoops." While there are three major Marvel guys named Chris, Chris Pine is usually also lumped into the conversation. Hemsworth doesn't take the bait, shuffling the question off on his fellow Marvel actor, and non-Chris, Michael Pena.
The whole "Hollywood Chris" thing has become a running gag in recent years with the four white male actors who play leading roles and tend to have short light hair. They're not entirely interchangeable, but that's the joke.
For what it's worth, while Chris Hemsworth doesn't give a serious answer, he's made very complimentary comments about Chris Pratt, who he worked with on the set of Avengers: Infinity War. While he never made comments about Pratt's physical appearance, Hemsworth was clearly taken with the Guardians of the Galaxy actor. Maybe that would be the answer if he was being honest.
Marvel fans will have an easier time judging the answer to this question on their own when Avengers: Infinity War arrives, as it will put the three Marvel guys names Chris together for the first time. We know that Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt will share scenes together and while we don't know if Chris Evans will join them, fans shouldn't need a line up to make the call. Though I suppose your opinions on Captain America's beard may skew the results in one direction or another.
Until then, Michael Pena can enjoy his temporary status as the hottest Chris. Pena and Chris Hemsworth co-star in 12 Strong, in theaters January 19. Avengers: Infinity War arrives May 4. Chris Pine will be in a different Disney movie, A Wrinkle in Time, this March.
