The prospect of meeting Chris Hemsworth would have most people weak at the knees - and that's not because his Marvel character Thor can wield a hammer estimated to weigh a whopping 42 pounds.

So it's refreshing to hear the 6ft 3inch Adonis felt the exact same way when meeting one of his Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War co-stars for the first time.

'The first time I really met Chris Pratt—and went on set with him and the Guardians—I was weirdly shaken,' he recently told ELLE.

'I don't know why. He's just so charismatic. And good at what he does,' he added.

And while the Australian actor might share our crush for the Jurassic World actor, he admits he was more afraid of his Thor: Ragnarok co-star Cate Blanchett during shooting for the up-coming film.

He's just so charismatic. And good at what he does

'She calls you on your sh*t straightaway. Which is intimidating. You walk in and you're doing all the usual polite chats, and she's like, 'Chris, what are you doing? Really, that's the story you're gonna tell?' And you're like, 'Sh*t, I'm not going to get away with anything with this lady,' the actor says.

'She's Cate Blanchett, for God's sake!' he said. 'There's quite a feeling of wanting to impress her. She's like, "I'm a human being. Act normal".'

Yeah Chris, it's only Cate Blanchett for crying out loud. She's only won two Academy Awards and three Golden Globe Awards - what's the big deal?

Fortunately, it only took a couple of bad jokes and drinks to get on her good side.

'Before you know it, you're drinking and telling stories and cracking jokes. She has a wild sense of humour,' he gushes.

The actor - who is father to two children - also took the opportunity to open up about the pressures of living in Hollywood with a growing family.

'It's suffocating. It was getting tricky to leave the house because of the paparazzi. I just wanted my kids to have a different life—the outdoors lifestyle and camping and surfing that we had. Not to say you can't get that in California. But I feel if you're an actor, then it's hard to escape it,' he added.

Admitting he once worked as a baby sitter for his manager's children while starting out in La La Land as a budding actor ('I didn't really know what I was doing'), the star also opened up about how liberating it was to finally shed his blond Thor wig for his new superhero blockbuster.

In previous Thor and Avengers films, the actor previously had to wear extensions because that's where his characters powers come from.

'When I didn't have the wig on, I instantly felt like I could move and speak and react differently,' the 34-year-old actor told Entertainment Weekly's Fall Movie Preview issue.

'Once we aesthetically stripped a lot of that away, it allowed the whole thing to take on a different attitude. It felt like a completely different character, and that was hugely liberating and freeing as an actor because I had become a bit bored with myself,' he added.

Well, we could never tire of you, Chris.
