Chris Hemsworth: I didn't have shoes

Chris Hemsworth didn't own a pair of shoes when he was a child.

The Australian star grew up in a remote area of the country and loves reminiscing about his early years. He spent them playing outside with his brothers, which was perfect.

"My dad and my uncle were mustering cattle. We, as kids, were just bouncing around with them. It was amazing. They were my earliest memories - what a great introduction to life. There are crocodiles, buffalo walking down the street," he recalled.

"You didn't own a pair of shoes. It's too hot. Your feet become like leather."

Chris was raised in an Aboriginal community called Bulman. He has nothing but fondness for the time he spent there.

"We were the only white kids at this little school of 40 kids. It was a beautiful thing and a privilege. It is a special part of the world," he told British newspaper The Times.
