Chris Pratt is singing his praise for Chris Hemsworth.

While in conversation with GameRadar's SFX Magazine, the actor, 42, talked about working with his Marvel costar, whom he described as being an actor unlike any other he's collaborated with before.

"I love being able to work with Chris Hemsworth," Pratt said. "He is like Thor in real life. He's the sweetest dude. Super funny. Works so hard."

Noting that it was "great" and he "loved every minute" of shooting the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder alongside Hemsworth, 38, in the star's home country, Pratt continued, "I'm so grateful that they brought us along. It was neat to see him bring this to Australia and shoot it there, with all of his fellow countrymen."

The soon-to-be father of three also praised director Taika Waititi, whom he described as "outrageous." Pratt added, "His style is so unique."
