Chris Hemsworth: “It’s awful, it’s awful. It’s so terrible,” he says. “My heart goes out to the women affected and I have huge admiration for the bravery and courage. And hopefully the truth will stop anything like that happening again, that’s my hope.”

It’s the elephant in the room. Publicists at movie junkets the world over are working overtime to make sure the talent aren’t quizzed about the accusations surrounding producer, Harvey Weinstein.  Understandably, they don’t want their clients put into an awkward position, considering all of Hollywood has worked with him at some point or another.

But when I tentatively bring it up with Chris Hemsworth, he delivers a very considered, thoughtful response though you can tell the Australian actor wants to tread lightly on the subject. Everyone does.
