He is to grace cinema screens all over the UK from April 27th 2011 onwards, but Thor actor Tom Hiddleston has revealed his father did not want him to become an actor.

He plays Loki, Thor's evil brother in the Marvel comics movie adaptation, but told the Scottish Daily Record that his dad James was not keen on him pursuing this kind of career when he first mentioned it as a 13-year-old.

"We had arguments about me doing something as insubstantial as acting," he admitted.

Fortunately, Tom followed his dream and eventually, after he played Winston Churchill's son in a BBC drama, James was convinced he had been wrong.

"He was crying and said he was really proud of me," Tom commented.

Thor also stars Natalie Portman and Sir Anthony Hopkins, who told Collider recently that his costume for the film was so heavy that it really tied him out.
