Hollywood Star Chris Hemsworth Stands Up For Soaps

Promoting his latest project, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, he talked to Variety about his respect for the comic book genre.

In fact, he took aim at actors/actresses who “bash” comic book films after being them and related it those same types of actors/actresses who got their start in soaps. Some often get their start in daytime drama, only to turn up there noses to this industry.

Hemsworth tells Variety, “Look, I grew up on a soap opera, and it used to bother me when actors would later talk about the show with guilt or shame. Humility goes a long way. One of the older actors on Home and Away said, ‘We don’t get paid to make the good lines sound good, but to make the bad ones work.’ That stuck with me.”
