Chris Hemsworth bitten by a spider

Actor Chris Hemsworth is still recovering from a pre-Christmas encounter with a huge spider.

The Thor star, who was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive last year (14), was cleaning out his garage in Australia when he was bitten by the creepy beast.

He explains, "We have eight of the most deadly spiders in the world. The bigger they are, it tends to be less venomous and it was, like, the size of my palm and its legs kind of spread out from there.

"I was cleaning up in the garage and I felt it first and I picked up a bag and I felt this big furry thing and felt the bite. It bled (a lot), like it took a chunk out of my finger. It was a monster of a thing. Then I screamed a bit and a (said) few words we can't say on TV."

The spider bite proved not to be venomous, but left shaken Hemsworth bleeding for hours.
