Watch Chris Hemsworth Give Rihanna's 'Work' a Very Dramatic Reading

The 'Thor' actor makes the nonsensical lyrics of Rihanna's hit sound like something written by Shakespeare during his appearance on Nick Grimshaw's BBC Radio 1 show.

AceShowbiz - Chris Hemsworth recently visited BBC Radio 1 as he continued to promote his new film, "The Huntsman: Winter's War". In addition to talking about the movie, the actor gave a dramatic reading of Rihanna's latest hit, "Work", during his appearance on Nick Grimshaw's breakfast show.

In a video uploaded to BBC Radio 1's YouTube channel, the Australian hunk sits in front of a microphone while holding a sheet of paper with the lyrics. He looks so serious and tries not to smile as he reads the nonsensical chorus, making the lyrics of RiRi's highly-danceable track sound like something written by Shakespeare.

"I just lost myself in that," Hemsworth jokingly said after Grimshaw praised his performance. "It just drummed up a whole lot of feelings, emotions and past experiences. Makes you just want to get to work."

"Work", a collaboration with Drake, is the first single lifted off Rihanna's latest album, "Anti". The song is currently spending its sixth week at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100.

Meanwhile, Hemsworth's "Huntsman: Winter's War" is hitting U.S. theaters on April 22. The sequel to 2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" will also star Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Sam Claflin among others.
