Chris Hemsworth says it was an absolute 'dream' to train with Arnold Schwarzenegger

Chris Hemsworth says it was an absolute 'dream' to train with Arnold Schwarzenegger

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Thorminator.

Chris Hemsworth has officially made every gym junkie in the world jealous.

The Australian star and occasional Greek God ran into none other than the God of Gains Arnold Schwarzenegger at a gym in Brazil.

We don't know about you, but when we go to the gym we only ever run into people we want to avoid.

Like the girl you went to high school with that is now involved with some Facebook-related pyramid scheme.

Or the creepy guy that 'just so happens' to follow you around the free weights floor.

One thing is for sure, though, it's never The Terminator.

The two action stars were in São Paulo ahead of Netflix’s Tudum event on Saturday June 17.

And, according to Hemsworth, the coincidental gym meet-up was a dream come true.

The Thor actor took to social media to share the pinch-me moment with the rest of the world.

"Ya never know who you’ll bump into at the gym! What a dream to train with the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger," the The 39-year-old Australian heartthrob wrote alongside a happy snap of the two action heroes together.

Hemsworth later gushed on the Tudum red carpet to PEOPLE about the accidental run-in.

"It was kind of a dream come true," the Extraction star admitted.

The gym sesh was especially exciting for Hemsworth as he had recently missed out on meeting Schwarzenegger in person.

The two stars shot a promotional video for Netflix but were unable to meet face-to-face despite sharing the limelight.

The former Home and Away actor said: "We were on green screens in separate countries.

"So to work out with him, meet him… it was a pretty special moment."

Hemsworth added that Schwarzenegger was 'as gracious and kind' as he had hoped.

Aw, you guys. We feel a bromance coming on.

Hemsworth's latest project, Extraction 2, recently dropped on Netflix, while Schwarzenegger's series Fubar has just been renewed by the streaming service for a second season.

The Austrian actor hero made that big announcement at the very same Netflix event in São Paulo.

Schwarzenegger seemed just as chuffed as Hemsworth about the random meet-up.

He also took to social media with the same post-workout snap of Hemsworth and himself, smiling.

"First we get our pump, then we go pump up the fantastic fans in Brazil," the 75-year-old star wrote ahead of the Netflix event.

But that wasn't the only dreamy moment for Hemsworth that day.

The Predator star commented on Hemsworth's Instagram post to pump up the Aussie actor's ego... and his muscles.

Arnie said: "Look at how pumped you are. The delts. The triceps."


Which is what many in the comments section did, including the eldest Hemsworth brother, Luke.

He didn't even try to hide his envy after that, writing: "I’m officially jealous."
