I am a feminist, says Chris Hemsworth

London: "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth says he considers himself a feminist and has praised his parents for the "positive influences" they have made in his life.

The 32-year-old actor says his mother instilled a "lot of respect for women" in him and has praised her and his father for the "positive influence" they have made in his life, reported Radio Times.

"My mum's a big feminist. I think that my views on things, as far as respect for women and so on, came from my mum. My dad has a very balanced and respectful view on a lot of things too. They were huge positive influences in my life," he added.

And Hemsworth is thrilled to be starring in "The Huntsman: Winter's War" because it features a number of strong female characters played by the likes of Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron.

"I think the balance has been tipped for a long time heavily in the men's direction. There are seven to eight male superheroes and one female in there. This is the opposite."
