It's hard to have body confidence around Thor.

John Krasinski stopped by Conan this week, where The Office star dished on getting in superhero shape to screen test for Captain America -- the role that ultimately went to Chris Evans.

"It was a big deal for me," the 36-year-old actor shared with host Conan O'Brien. "I love those Marvel movies, I love superheroes."

Krasinski explained that he was feeling pretty good about it all until, while putting on his suit, he ran into literal human statue Chris Hemsworth, who was in costume as his Marvel superhero, Thor.

"I was putting on the suit ... and I got about right to my waist," Krasinski said. "All of a sudden, Chris Hemsworth walked by as Thor, and he's like, 'Hey, mate,' and I went, 'I'm good. This is stupid.'"

"That's OK. I'm not Captain America, it's fine," the actor hilariously concluded.

Aww, John! You'll always be a superhero in our eyes!
