Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett have weighed into the debate on the refugee crisis, calling on governments to increase their foreign aid during a Facebook Live video from their Queensland movie set.
The pair, who are both filming the latest Thor movie on the Gold Coast, appeared live for 30 minutes on the UNHCR — UN Refugee Agency Facebook page last night, where they asked fans to sign the UNHCR’s #WithRefugees petition.
The petition, which has close to 1 million signatures worldwide, calls on governments to “act with solidarity and shared responsibility” to the refugee crisis and will be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly high-level summit next Monday.
In the video, Hemsworth acts as the interviewer questioning Blanchett, the UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, about the time she spent with families in refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan. Take a look below:
Chris’ Thor co-star, Tom Hiddleston won the Best Actor prize at the UK TV Choice Awards which was held in London. Tom is currently filming Thor: Ragnarok in Australia so obviously couldn’t make the ceremony, but he still took some time out to accept the gong for his acclaimed role in The Night Manager.
But while Tom was filming his acceptance speech, his camera time was hijacked by his co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba. Take a look at the hilarious hijinks below:

Have you ever wondered whether Chris Hemsworth could actually be as incredible as he seems? Well, the Ghostbusters cast is here to confirm it for you. During the group’s appearance on The Graham Norton Show, they couldn’t stop gushing about their handsome costar.
Melissa McCarthy told a hilarious story about the time he started singing, and when Kate McKinnon suggested that he probably doesn’t even have boogers, Leslie Jones chimed in to say that if he does, they “probably taste like cornflakes.” Watch the women’s incredible Chris Hemsworth commentary below.

Three new TV spots for the upcoming reboot, Ghostbusters have been released. Directed by Paul Feig, Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth.

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris and Tom Hiddleston Discuss “Captain America: Civil War”
Following Thor’s decision to leave Earth at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have been split right down the middle, and The Avengers have been disassembled. Meanwhile in Asgard, Loki sits on the throne as Odin in disguise, so nothing is currently as it seems! However, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston had plenty to say about the events of Captain America: Civil War during an appearance at Wizard World Philadephia over this past weekend.
Asked how they believe Thor would react to finding out The Avengers went to war with each other, Hemsworth said: “I’d be like, ‘Sort it out, idiots. This is silly.’ I don’t know. I’m not sure how that story’s going to go when Thor comes back. But I think it will come as quite a shock that they all aren’t getting along—having a bit of a tiff.” Hiddleston then interjected by going full on Loki and adding, “When I came down to Earth, I brought you guys together. Now I’ve left and you’re fighting each other. Sorry. So sorry.” When Hemsworth suggested that, “Loki’s going to come back and lead them all,” the crowd ate it up as you can see below. That would be quite something to see play out, eh?
Given Loki’s history with Thanos, there’s a very good chance the God of Mischief will end up factoring into Avengers: Infinity War in some way, and him going out a hero would actually work really well (just look at Siege). We’ll just have to wait and see, but Thor: Ragnarok will no doubt drop some more hints about how both of these characters will factor into that movie when it’s released next year.
Sony Pictures has released another official trailer for the upcoming comedy, Ghostbusters. The second trailer features more Chris as “Kevin” the receptionist. Directed by Paul Feig, Ghostbusters is scheduled to hit theatres on July 15, 2016. The film also stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Take a look at the trailer below and head over to the gallery for the latest additions.

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris Discusses His Himalayan Scare
Chris Hemsworth has fought all kinds of gods and monsters on the big screen as Thor, but in real life, he recently faced a much more dangerous enemy: altitude sickness. Hemsworth told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday that his job involves so much traveling that he and wife Elsa Pataky rarely take vacations. However, they did make a recent trek to the Himalayas.
Standard procedure for such mountain-climbing requires spending a few days at various height milestones to allow bodies to acclimate to the higher altitudes and lack of oxygen, but even this didn’t really work for Hemsworth.
“We went to 2000 meters, then 3000, and I honestly started to kind of lose my mind,” Hemsworth said. “Just completely irrational, overly sensitive to the most trivial sort of silly things.”
According to Hemsworth, his wife started to notice something was wrong. He protested he was fine, though eventually the sickness became impossible to ignore.
“My breathing is getting worse, like Darth Vader meets Daffy Duck,” Hemsworth said. “She eventually ignores me, runs and tells the guards. They come in, take one look at me and say ‘get him off the mountain.’”
Turns out Hemsworth hadn’t acclimated well to the higher altitude. After getting a breathing mask and flying back down the mountain via helicopter, everything turned out fine, but it was a close call.
“Apparently the oxygen in my lungs, the next day would’ve been oxygen in my brain, and then good night,” Hemsworth said. “We wouldn’t be sitting here.”
“Maybe it’s because you’re so handsome,” Kimmel said. “You’re not meant to be up in the mountains away from others, you’re meant to be down amongst the people, bringing joy to their eyes.”
