Paul Rudd: ‘No point’ competing with Chris Hemsworth physique

PAUL RUDD has said seeing his Avengers: Endgame co-star Chris Hemsworth topless on set made him think: ‘What’s the point?’

Rudd, 50, who plays Ant-Man (above) in the superhero series, insisted he trained hard for his role, but working with Hemsworth made him realise he could not compete.

Thor star Hemsworth, 35, has previously shared the gruelling workout he uses to get in shape for the part of the Norse god of thunder.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show alongside Hemsworth, Rudd admitted his co-star’s body made him doubt himself.

He said: ‘I’d been working out really hard. I’d been eating really great for years and years, and then, when we were filming, I stood behind Chris just after we’d got out of our [superhero] suits and I thought, “What is the point?”

‘We’re basically comprised of similar materials but there is this [pointing at Hemsworth’s body] and then there’s Ant-Man.’

Avengers: Endgame is out on April 26.

Meanwhile, Kit Harington revealed to Graham Norton that he gave away the Game Of Thrones ending to an uninterested friend when it ‘got too much’.

Harington said he felt he had to get it off his chest.

The actor, whose alter-ego Jon Snow edges ever closer to securing the Iron Throne, said he told his pal James, who had started watching the epic saga but fell asleep during the first episode.

Harington, 32, said he was driven to divulge who would rule Westeros by the ‘intensity’ of having to keep the show’s ending a secret.

He told Norton: ‘The intensity of finishing something like this and not being able to tell anybody is so hard.
It got too much.’

Harington also admitted having anxiety dreams about GoT. He said: ‘There are some incredible sequences, but I’ve woken up in the middle of the night recently thinking, “What if, after eight seasons, we have mucked it up?”.’

The final series of Game Of Thrones begins on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV at 2am on Monday, repeated at 9pm.
