Lennox Head gets own thunder god as Chris Hemsworth moves in

SOME may have thought the Icelandic gods had descended on Lennox Head of late, but it wasn't actually Thor, just Australian-born Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth.

Lennox Head business owners have been tight-lipped about one of Australia's hottest stars calling their village home for the past few weeks.

But Mr Hemsworth's extended visit to the beachside community has quickly become the area's worst-kept secret.

The star of such movies as Thor, The Avengers, Rush and Snow White and the Huntsman was, according to his Australian agent, "not giving interviews and taking a well-earned rest".

With sightings at the local fitness club and fish-and-chip shop, it seems he is making the most of his break.

There have also been sightings of Mr Hemsworth at Lismore.
