Hemsworth recalled his visit to a prison on "The Graham Norton Show", which is hosted by actor Graham Norton, reports aceshowbiz.com.

He said that after looking at him, the prisoners were yelling: "Yo Thor is here! Yo Thor! Where's your hammer, man?"

One even said, "Come spend some time in my cell, baby!"

Hemsworth visited jail to do a research for his role in a film.

"We had to go in and basically see what the inside of a prison looked like, and speak with prisoners who were willing to talk to us," he said.
