As the older brother of `Hunger Games` star Liam, and the younger brother of actor Luke, Chris, 28, admits he was the one that chatted away to his mother like a daughter whilst growing up on a farm in Australia.
He said: "My mum always used to say to me that, out of her three boys, `Chris, you were the girl`. "I`d speak to her about far more things than [my brothers] would and far more things than she needed to hear about, too. I was a chatty kid."
The `Thor` star - who is expecting his first child with actress Elsa Pataky - believes his three years on Australian soap `Home and Away` gave him the best training possible ahead of his move to Los Angeles in 2008.
He explained to OUT magazine: "I was able to make mistakes, and no one gave a s**t about me. "You come to America, and, if you do a big TV show, then you can be overexposed, or old, before you`re new. You get the positives from an Australian soap without the negatives."
Chris was closely followed Stateside by little brother Liam, 22, whose career is proving to be just as successful.
Chris joked: "I`m reminded, now that my little brother`s working a lot, how much more interesting he is. So I give him a punch when I see him."
