Vanity Fair Italia has dug up shirtless photos of Chris Hemsworth from his pre-Thor days (right), back when he was starring in Australian TV shows. At the time, Hemsworth's bod was long and lean and he sported a neo-shag hairstyle that made the 6’3” actor look a bit like Gary Barlow during Take That's heyday.

For much of the globe, the brawny version of Hemsworth is the one we first swooned over. But version 1.0 is nothing to sneeze at either. And since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we’re wondering which you guys prefer: Long and lean or big and beefy.
