It you thought that Chris Hemsworth’s package looked a little too good to be true in the new ‘Vacation’, that’s because it is! The hunky actor has revealed that he actually stuffed his underwear with a giant fake penis for the film saying, ‘We went big and bold.’
Whoa — we don’t remember THAT being in the original movie! On top of stripping down to show off his incredible abs in the new Vacation, Chris Hemsworth, 31, also forced paraded around in one scene in nothing but a pair of underwear that — get this — was actually stuffed with an enormous fake penis hand-selected by the actor himself! Looks like size really does matter in some cases.
The member in question comes into play mid-way through the movie, when Rusty (played by Ed Helms, 41) makes a pit stop to visit his sister (played by Leslie Mann, 43) and her well-equipped husband (Chris), the latter of whom carries on half-nude, almost oblivious to the size of his own monstrous package. “It was embarrassing,” the Thor star admitted to E! News at the Vacation premiere in L.A. on July 28. “It was hilarious and probably more for other people than me…I was intimidated by that set and scene.”
Thankfully, Chris did have a say in the size and feel of his character’s goods, as he reportedly worked with the film’s co-directors and writers, John Francis Daley, 30, and Jonathan M. Goldstein, 46, to find the perfect match. “It’s part of character development,” explained Chris, “We went bold, ya know—big and bold.”
Turns out the crew had no choice but to go with the biggest faux penis available, as Chris is well, just that hunky. “The morning we shot that sequence, we went into another room in the house we were shooting in, and Chris modeled the eight-inch and the ten-inch options for us,” Daley told Vulture in a separate interview. The eight-incher was quickly vetoed: “As big as it would seem, it did not look that big on him. I think it was just because Chris is such a big, hulking dude.” “He makes the normal-size penis look small,” Goldstein concurred. Hot dayum!
Much like the classic film on which it is based, Vacation sees the original star Chevy Chase, 71, return for more Griswald family fun, only this time, his son is the one leading his family on a vacation that they will likely never forget– yup, they’re once again going to Walley World. Of course, like that other vacation, things here go immediately and hopelessly awry. Not to give too much away, there are examples of bathroom harassment, inaccurate sexual education and – brace yourselves – a sewage bath. Thankfully, there is that swoon-worthy Chris Hemsworth appearance to look forward to — you know, just in case awkward family road trips aren’t really your thing.
Tell us HollywoodLifers — are you excited to see Chris and all of his manly glory in the new Vacation movie?
