Chris Hemsworth says a punch in the head from Kristen Stewart bruised his pride "more than anything".
The Australian actor stars as Eric the Huntsman in fantasy film Snow White and the Huntsman. Kristen plays Snow White in the movie and Chris says the action-heavy picture had its downfalls at times.
The 28-year-old star has recalled a particular scuffle that left him being struck in the head by petite Kristen.
"We lived and breathed our characters. There were no sets or greens screens, it was all, we were out amongst the elements, snow-capped mountains and dark dense forests and lakes and mud and rain. Once we arrived on set, there was no running back to the trailer because we were on some obscure location," he explained to Collider.
"You're in the thick of it for the remainder of the shoot. It was great. There were a few bumps and bruises, one included Kristen punching me in the head, and various axe issues or horse issues. Nothing too serious - my pride more than anything."
Chris is famed for playing axe-wielding hero Thor. The star preferred his choice of weapon this time round.
"I had different axes of various sizes as opposed to the Thor hammer. It was far more practical than the hammer, the hammer was a pretty clumsy weapon to try and use. It's top heavy and short," he laughed.
"It was difficult. Whereas this was far more functional."
