Tom Hiddleston Describes the Time Chris Hemsworth Punched Him in the Face

The stars behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Loki and Thor have had some interesting moments while working behind the scenes, and a recent comment from Tom Hiddleston about Chris Hemsworth proves that.

In a recent appearance on the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hiddleston recalled a unique time when Hemsworth punched him in the face...literally.

Hiddleston explained how on film it's "all about angles," and how you're trying to get the angle of the story and you only have to do it once to capture the perfect moment. A scene in the first Avengers movie had Thor strike Loki across the face, but there was a certain head ornament getting in the way.

"I was wearing the horns which weigh about thirty pounds," Hiddleston said. "And I couldn't sell the...smack. So, I said to Chris, just hit me in the face."

Colbert and Hiddleston went on to joke about the comical moment, with Hiddleston confessing that he "went down" after the God of Thunder's "smack in the face" moment. Next, he admitted that on a Broadway stage, this type of thing happens live all the time. However, Hiddleston doesn't think he could handle getting hit in the face by Hemsworth day after day, making this a truly funny moment for him to confess.

Hiddleston is currently making his Broadway debut on the show, Betrayal, in New York City.
