Chris Hemsworth says he’s never heard of the term thirst trap, even though he sure knows how to upload them.

If you’re unfamiliar with the saying, like the Thor star, has us covered with the definition: ‘A thirst trap is a sexy photo posted on social media to attract attention.’

But it seems the 36-year-old was unaware that his shirtless workout videos fell under the new millennial phrase.

Even if he shared one with the caption: ‘It was so hot my shirt literally burst into flames, luckily I was wearing my favourite pair of fire retardant shorts.’

When chatting to refinery29, the Avengers actor was quizzed over the term, saying: ‘Thirst trap? Thirst trap? What is that? Tell me, this is fascinating.’

And when he finally learned what it all meant, he promised to keep on delivering the pics.

‘Oh, so it’s like, you’re trying to play it down like it’s casual, but you’re doing like a,’ he said as he pointed towards a picture of his brother Liam holding a puppy.

Giggling at his new knowledge, he teased: ‘Thirst trap. Ok. We’ll try to get more of those going.’

Just recently, Chris’ wife Elsa Pataky opened up about their marriage, where she called it a ‘lot of work’.

The duo tied the knot back in 2010 and have since gone on to have three children together, seven-year-old daughter India Rose, and five-year-old twin sons Sasha, and Tristan.

Chatting to Hello! Magazine, the model said: ‘Chris and I got married very quickly, we had children very early, and we were young, so we’ve thrown every possible challenge at our marriage.

‘A marriage is constant work because that initial infatuation dies down over the years and you both have to work the rest of your lives to keep the love alive and become one person.

‘Of course there are lots of ups and downs and it’s a lot of work, but if there is love and respect for the other person, you can overcome anything.’

The star recently brushed off claims about having of having a ‘special’ secret to their marriage, when talking to Who Magazine.

‘Nothing is as easy and perfect as it looks,’ she said. ‘We have those moments where we shout at the kids and then we feel like horrible parents and we have to work at being a couple like everyone else.
