To portray Formula One racecar driver James Hunt in the new movie Rush, Chris Hemsworth had no problem learning how to drive a car zipping at nearly 100 mph. The one thing that scared him the most? Filming his first nude scenes.
“It was more daunting than the racing!” Hemsworth, 30, told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Cinema Society and Ferrari screening of Rush in New York. “To take your clothes off in front of 100 people and cameras was something I wasn’t comfortable with. To be honest, it was embarrassing.”
