Chris Hemsworth was always destined for Men In Black it seems, as the actor recalls pretending to fight aliens with his brother Liam when they were children.

The Thor actor is currently starring in Men In Black: International as Agent H alongside Tessa Thompson, making his debut in the beloved sci-fi franchise.

But it seems that Chris, 35, is actually pretty well skilled at fending off those pesky aliens thanks to he and Liams very imaginative childhoods in Byron Bay, Australia where they grew up.

The Avengers star told The Herald Sun that he fondly remembers being a kid in the backyard and pretending to fight aliens with Liam, 29, and their older brother Luke Hemsworth.

He added of joining the Men In Black universe: I love this world. I love sci-fi. It was also nerve-racking to take on something that had been done so well before, but I like the challenge and I have a great team.

The pair are one of Hollywoods favourite duos having starred together in Thor: Ragnarok, and Tessa only has praise for her co-star.
