Entertainment Weekly announced another year-ending list within their Best and Worst of 2011.  This time it is their 15 Breakout Stars of 2011 and Chris (The Huntsman) Hemsworth lands at #4.

#4 Chris Hemsworth (Thor)

He was days away from shooting the Marvel comic-book ensemble The Avengers last May when Thor — the movie that would ­introduce Chris Hems­worth as the ­titular ­superhero god — opened in ­theaters. Was he nervous? ''I could say I wasn't, but I'd be ­lying,'' laughs the 28-year-old Aussie. ''I had my ­fingers crossed, absolutely!'' Thor went on to gross a mighty $181 million, and suddenly the actor most ­remembered for his cameo as Captain Kirk's doomed father in J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek ­reboot was a bona fide star. By the time The Avengers wrapped, Hemsworth had been cast in two major projects for 2012: Snow White and the Huntsman, opposite Kristen Stewart, and Ron Howard's Formula One ­racing drama Rush. Work kept Hemsworth so busy he almost forgot to enjoy himself. ''It's only now that I sit back from it and I go, 'Oh, wow!' '' he says.
