Chris Hemsworth trained as hacker

Chris Hemsworth has revealed he took lessons in computer hacking for his new film Cyber.

The Thor hunk plays an IT expert in Michael Mann's thriller about American and Chinese forces working together to catch a high-level hacking ring.

Chris told Details magazine: "I did two months [of lessons]. This computer teacher with a PhD from UCLA would come into this little room and give me lessons in Unix commands and whatnot."

But the Australian actor admits his training has not left him able to hack other people's computers.

"It was exciting the first day or two, then I was like, 'Oh no, this is why I didn't take a desk job'," he confessed. "I can't say I can hack into your Swiss bank account, but I can pretend to."
