Chris Hemsworth celebrated the LA premiere of Thor with brother Liam and wife Elsa. Even the god of thunder needs a little help from his family -- just ask Chris Hemsworth. The star of  "Thor" toasted with his nearest and dearest after the movie's Hollywood premiere Monday.

Chris' wife, "Fast Five" actress Elsa Pataky, was similarly attentive, rocking a white minidress and side ponytail and smiling and nodding at countless well-wishers clamoring to get to her husband.

Anthony Hopkins circulated among Peter Facinelli of "Twilight," Idris Elba, "Thor" cast member Kat DenningsAnton Yelchin, Rene Russo and an in-and-out Colin Farrell.     

Talk at the intimate bash ranged from the absence of "Thor" female lead Natalie Portman -- understandable, as she's in New York and will likely give birth any day -- to how young Liam original read for the starring role that went to Chris.

Not to worry: The younger Hemsworth landed himself a starring spot in "The Hunger Games." As far as his appetite for flirting goes -- Liam stuck with some younger male pals for a few hours, then headed out with Chris.
