Watch: Chris Hemsworth's huge arm muscles have brought scrutiny on his legs

Chris Hemsworth's right bicep has become a meme after he shared a picture of himself online in which his upper arm appeared the same size as his seven-year-old child.

The 37-year-old Thor star posted a picture of himself on Instagram walking down the street, holding hands with one of his seven-year-old twin sons.

Hemsworth's upper-arm muscles are so huge they appear bigger than his son's head, while his calf muscles appear to be average size, and therefore dramatically out of proportion.

His older brother - 40-year-old actor Luke Hemsworth - teased him by commenting: "Bro?! You’ve been skipping leg days again?!"

Hemsworth captioned the picture: "Holding my little man’s hand and asking him the age old question. 'What do you want to be when you grow up?' 

"'Dad I wanna be Superman'. Lucky I have two other kids."
