Q&A with Chris Hemsworth, The Newest BOSS BOTTLED Global Fragrance Ambassador
BOSS sits down with actor Chris Hemsworth to discuss his grooming habits, personal style, and his new role as the BOSS BOTTLED ambassador.
Do you have a grooming regime?
My wife always reminds me to take care of my skin and use plenty of moisturiser, as I spend a lot of time surfing in the sun.
What’s the one grooming product you could not live without?
It’s all about prevention, so a good sunscreen. I spend a lot of time surfing and the salt water and sun can be quite tough on my skin.
Top grooming tip if you want to look fresh instantly?
Occasionally, I’ll put my face in a bowl of ice water. It’s an old trick Paul Newman used.
Do you have a summer grooming tip?
I would say coconut oil is a great product to use during the summer. I think it’s all about protecting your skin, so wearing a good sunscreen is also helpful.
What is your style when you’re off-camera?
When I am at home I dress casually and usually wear a t-shirt and board shorts. We live next to the beach and spend most of the day swimming and surfing. However, I do love putting on a good suit when going to a red-carpet event.
Does your evolving fitness regime impact your style?
I’m shooting Thor Avengers at the moment, so I’m a little bigger than I would be normally. I have suits in a lot of different sizes because of this; some of them are for my normal weight and the others for my Thor size.
How important is fashion to you? How would you describe your personal style?
Growing up, I wasn’t very into fashion. However, since I started attending premieres, I realised how lucky I am to be able to wear beautiful suits. I’ve got to say I do love dressing up and going to an event; but at home a t-shirt and shorts would be my go to wardrobe, so I think my personal style depends on the situation.
You’ve been known to wear HUGO BOSS suits on the red carpet. What are the defining features of a great suit, in your eyes?
I think a great tailor is key in making a beautiful suit. It has to be well fitted and feel light on your body. I think there always has been a great sense of confidence that comes from wearing a perfectly fitted suit.
Tell us about your new role as the BOSS BOTTLED ambassador. How would you define the Man of Today?
The Man of Today campaign is all about representing the idea that actions speak louder than words. It’s something I’ve always tried to embody and live my life by. It’s one thing to say you’re going to do something but to back it up and do it is a whole other thing. It’s something that my parents bestowed upon me and something I try to do with my kids as well. It’s about honesty and integrity, which is a great message to be a part of.
Why did you choose to partner with HUGO BOSS?
BOSS BOTTLED is an iconic fragrance by a brand that’s been around for many, many years. So, to front the campaign and represent the Man of Today is a huge honour. I believe that success is about living a life full of integrity and honesty and compassion, and not about the material objects we acquire. So, I really identify with the campaign and the values it stands for. It’s how I like to live my life.
How do you feel about being the face of BOSS BOTTLED?
I feel great about being the new face of BOSS BOTTLED. It’s a huge honour and I really identify with the values that the Man of Today stands for. Life should be a journey of passion, honesty and integrity and be about having a greater awareness of your impact in the community and the people you interact with.
What does it mean to be a Man of Today?
I think being a Man of Today is all about acting with integrity, warmth, honesty and appreciation for those in your community. It is about being someone who lives by the idea that actions speak louder than words. A Man of Today is compassionate as well as passionate, he is ambitious and chases his dreams.
Why are values so important to you?
Integrity, honesty, and compassion are the values I was raised by, which means they are very important to me. The older I get, the more I realise the importance of having a sense of compassion. Having that attitude, being collaborative and staying open minded with a willingness to learn is what makes people want to work with you.
