The Australian hunk revealed: "I was talking with my older brother the other day and his daughter was running around the house with a Thor action figure; he wanted to pull the batteries out of it because she keeps pressing the button and making it speak, 'I am Thor!' or, 'The mighty Mjolnir!' It does nothing but make me laugh, it's great."
