While researching for an upcoming movie role, the hunky actor visited a prison and said it was eye-opening to say the least - but mostly for the prisoners.

On Friday night's Graham Norton Show on BBC One, the Aussie star spoke about him being invited to a prison and thought he could blend in by wearing a baseball cap.

But the warden forbade it and he had to let his long flowing locks blow with the wind as he made his way through the cell blocks.

"The warden said 'You can't wear your hat,' and so on, and I said, 'OK no worries.' And I thought, 'Oh s**t, they're going to know who I am.' Then I thought, 'No, they don't get Thor in here, they're not going to watch movies,' and, I don't know, I'd never been to prison. I assumed that."

"And the moment I started walking through the cells...I just start getting heckled," he laughed.

"It's like, 'Yo yo, Thor's here, man. Yo Thor's here, yo Thor, Thor! Where's your hammer man?' And I'm trying to blend in, doing 'research,' and I'm just getting heckled left and right. 'Yo come spend some time in my cell, baby!'"

Hemsworth is busy promoting his new role in In The Heart of the Sea about a man stranded at sea after his boat is destroyed by a whale. He lsot 33 pounds for the role and described his diet as "crazy".

"Sometimes when ‘cut’ was called you would literally pass out from exhaustion," adding it was "the most physically challenging thing to do."
