I typically refer to Chris Hemsworth in one of three ways: as the Not-As-Hot Hemsworth, the Third (Sometimes Second) Best Chris, or Taika Waititi’s Less Attractive Friend. This week, to me, he’s just the guy who played third wheel to new besties Taika and Angelina Jolie at the Golden Globes. When Lainey wrote about Chris’s seating arrangement at the Globes, she called it the “best gossipy table.” Apparently, there has been some gossip to come from this table. According to Ellen, people have been speculating about Chris and Angelina because his wife wasn’t there.
Chris Hemsworth and Angelina Jolie. HA. Are these people new? If you were paying attention during Thor: Ragnorak, you know that Hemsworth is actually a really talented comedic actor. I don’t think Taika Waititi would hang out with him so much if he wasn’t funny IRL. So, it’s not surprising that Chris’s response to the Angelina Jolie rumours made me laugh.
“See, you've done what the internet has done, which is you've cropped out my real date.”
Who are these monsters who would crop Taika Waititi out of a photo? Chris’s quip that his wife, Elsa Pataky, is more threatened of Taika than of Angelina is hilarious, and accurate. These guys are obsessed with each other and I’m obsessed with them being obsessed with each other. The real third wheel on Sunday night was Angelina Jolie.
As for when we’ll get to see this bromance on screen again, Chris Hemsworth says he and Taika Waititi have been “visualizing” Thor 4. Thor: Ragnorak felt like a natural end to the series but hey, if Taika’s on board, I’m on board.
Chris Hemsworth is currently promoting 12 Strong, which comes out next Friday (my birthday!). Here’s Hemsworth arriving at Jimmy Kimmel Live!. How a guy wears his pants is really important to Lainey. For me, it’s how he rocks a white t-shirt. He’s wearing a terribly ill-fitting white t-shirt and it’s distracting from how well he’s wearing his pants and everything else. He still looks GOOD though. Fine, today he gets to be the Second Best Chris.
