Another old interview of which i had only read bits before.
Here’s an extract ( I can’t help but notice that he cited Tom Hanks in different interviews for different reasons. I would love to see them work together!)
"It wasn’t just his mood that suffered. The other big impact the weight-cycling had was on his wardrobe, with designer casualties to make any fashion fan weep. "I just went through this with my stylist for the Avengers press tour and she said, ‘OK, you should have a bunch of suits from last year.’ I’m like, ‘Nope! None of them fit.’ Literally, I look like Tom Hanks at the end of the movie Big, when he’s a child again. I put on the suits and the pants completely fell off me, and the shoulders and the sleeves are down to my knuckles. So I’ve got 30 beautiful suits, Armani and Burberry and Gucci, that just doesn’t fit me, so I’ve got to work out what to do with them."
Chris’s other big project is impending fatherhood with his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky - something he’s incredibly excited about, although they’re letting the sex of the baby stay a surprise. They married in 2010 after reportedly being introduced by their mutual agent.
"I try not to get too detailed about how we met," he says with typical movie star wariness, before being unable to stop himself gushing about her. "But we’re married and having a kid, and I knew pretty soon that this was who I wanted to be with. I feel lucky to have met someone who - whatever’s going on in the work side of my life - is there with me to give me a hand, or keep me focused, or keep me…" On the straight and narrow, I venture. "That’s it! Keep me in check and she certainly does. She’s Spanish, she’s passionate, she’s fiery."
The couple have a loose rule to make sure they don’t spend more than two or three weeks apart. “You get to the two-week mark and it gets uncomfortable then, so you want to go home,” he says. “So far we’ve managed not to work at the same time, so let’s hope it stays that way. If I’m on one side of the world and she’s on the other, that’s not the healthiest scenario for a relationship.”
