There are lots of things we'd like to see Chris Hemsworth do and dramatic readings of things that don't really need dramatic readings in his exquisitely deep voice is definitely one of them. Luckily, someone else had that idea while he was promoting his new film The Huntsman: Winter's War. During an interview for BBC Radio 1, he was asked to do a reading of Rihanna's "Work." We could listen to Hemsworth read directions about microwaving, so this was a downright pleasure.
Hemsworth read in a serious brooding tone, "Work, work, work, work, work, work / He said me haffi / Work, work, work, work, work, work! / He see me do mi / Dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt! So me put in."
Once he was finished, Hemsworth said, "I lost myself in those." The host of the show said, "It's like I was at the Globe [Theatre in London] watching Shakespeare." “It just drummed up a whole lot of feelings, emotions, and past experiences,” Hemsworth joked. “It makes you just want to get to work, doesn’t it? Hear that, kids? Get a job.” Watch the video of Hemsworth reading "Work" below.
The Huntsman: Winter's War comes out April 22.
