If it's 5 a.m. and Chris Hemsworth has a movie to shoot that day, he may have already dunked his head in ice water and played with his three children. The gorgeous Australian actor (seriously, he is stunningly handsome in the flesh!) is just another hardworking father and husband.
When I chatted with him in NYC to celebrate his new campaign with Hugo Boss fragrances, it was weird how human this god of guy seemed. Just like any other 33-year-old husband and brother (you may have heard of Liam and Luke), he has to work hard to plan date nights with his wife (actress Elsa Pataky). Plus, his career is demanding — you can't sit around twiddling your thumbs to play superheros like Thor or The Huntsman.
As mentioned, Hemsworth can now add "dapper fragrance spokesman" to his résumé. He is the new face of Boss Bottled Tonic Fragrance Eau de Toilette Spray ($119), which smells as fresh as the cool blue bottle looks. The modern scent features notes of citrus (grapefruit, bitter orange, and lemon), spices (clove, geranium, and cinnamon), and woods. Ginger is the star spicy ingredient, giving it energizing aromatic benefits. Chris also stars in the fragrance's ads, dubbed the Man of Today campaign, featuring the rugged surfer in an elegant Boss suit against an urban skyline.
