I think it's better to think of them as images of Thor, rather than images of Chris Hemsworth per se. Should I ever, through improbable circumstances, actually meet any of these actors, I would want to be able to interact with them as themselves, rather than as any of their characters. So I find it good to maintain the mental distinction. (It helps that Chris Hemsworth in his own clothes without the hair and makeup looks rather different from Thor.)
With that framework, however you respond to the images is entirely within the realm of fiction.
