Chris Hemsworth receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, 'Avengers' co-star Robert Downey Jr roasts him

Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was surrounded by his wife Elsa Pataky and was photographed at the ceremony with two of their kids — twin sons Sasha and Tristan, 10 — as he was given his star on the iconic Hollywood pathway. Their daughter India Rose, 12, was also in attendance at the ceremony but opted out of photos.

Although it was a happy occasion, it didn’t stop his longtime ‘Avengers’ co-star Robert Downey Jr. from marking the occasion with a public roast of everyone's favourite ‘Thor’ actor. Robert Downey Jr. asked their Marvel buddies Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Evans to describe Hemsworth in three words, reports ‘Variety’.

Their answers had the audience laughing. "What is Chris Hemsworth?" Downey asked.

Renner said, “Absurdly, annoyingly amazing."

Ruffalo came in strong with a “friend from work”.

Scarlett got to the heart of it with a “sensitive leading lady”.

On a more serious note, Downey lauded Hemsworth for being one of the most remarkable people he knows.

As per ‘Variety’, Hemsworth received his star the day before the opening of his latest movie, George Miller’s ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’. Downey said he “cannot wait” to see the movie and predicted “this is going to be the film of 2024.”

"I wrote all of my comments myself, which is why they are going to be quite insightful and brilliant," Downey continued.

"Beyond the cape and the hammer is a contagious Aussie charm. You are a remarkable human being. You are a legend. Chris is a bit daunting to describe. He’s very elusive because of the pretty packaging. However, upon further inspection…down under…he has a true wit and depth of soul and it has been my sincere pleasure to know you. You keep us Hollywood folk on our toes because you’re just a real deal," he added.

In an interview with Variety to celebrate his Hollywood star, Hemsworth admitted that he thought he was getting the honor years ago in 2019 when the cast of “Avengers: Endgame” was asked to put their handprints in cement outside the legendary TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

“I thought that was the Walk of Fame! So when we did it, I thought, ‘Oh cool, I’m getting a star.’” Hemsworth said. “And someone told me, ‘No, that’s not what this is.’ I went along with it like I completely knew what was happening. It was kind of afterwards, I was like, ‘So, where’s the star?’
