The Avengers star Chris Hemsworth feels the need for speed in Rush, the new Formula 1 film from Oscar-winning director/producer duo Ron Howard and Brian Grazer -- and ET's Mark Steines is first on the set of the epic action-thriller, based on a true story!
So, first and foremost, is Chris an adrenalin junkie? "I read something about the guys who do things like this and why, and it's a need to kind of feel like they're in the moment," explains the Aussie star. "When you're kind of flirting with death like that, you can't be anywhere else but in that position, and there's something very satisfying about it. … I think we all have elements of that. That's why we bungee jump or do stupid things."
