Handsome Chris Hemsworth turned 35 last month. The celeb’s milestone birthday prompted a social media outpouring of reactions from other famous folk. On the heels of the last teeth-clenching blog on ICE arresting immigrants on their 18th birthdays, I thought I’d take a lighter approach to milestones this week. C’mon it even has the Rock singing!
So, Hemsworth, who is perhaps best known for Thor in the Marvel movies (aside from being famously gorgeous), celebrated his 35th at home with his family (wife, Elsa Pataky, and their three kids, India Rose, Tristan, and Sasha). He also considerately shared a family selfie around the cake, captioned with the note: ““Immediately after this shot was taken my son viciously attacked me from behind (due to his ninja training) and slammed my face into the flaming candles…I’ll now be playing Deadpool if @vancityreynolds pulls the pin.”
The equally handsome and hilarious (and Canadian too) Reynolds responded.
Happy Birthday Handsome
Keeping the hunk Happy Birthdays going, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson sang and shared his customized version of the “Happy Birthday” song.
“Happy birthday to Thor,
You Australian man whore,
You’re the greatest Chris, that’s a fact,
After Evans, Pine, and Pratt.”
He also referred to Chris as an “Australian man whore” and dissed the handsome Aussie actor for eating birthday cake while the Rock was busy working out in his “iron paradise.”
Hemsworth took his ranking as fourth favorite Chris with good nature, noting he was glad to learn it from the Rock. He added: “Also my kids after seeing this said ‘dad are you friends with Jumanji!!!’. And now possibly think I’m cool. They expect you at each of their birthday parties in the coming years.”
Josh Brolin, Thor’s nemesis Thanos in the movies, also provided a song, but no word on whether he needs to be a birthday party performer in the future. Although Aquaman Jason Momoa commented on the tune, “U missed mine f***er.”
Hemsworth was also treated to a birthday ditty from Leon Bridges. I heard on Sirius Alt Nation that Avengers costar Tessa Thompson, a common friend of both Bridges and Hemsworth, arranged the ditty knowing that the American gospel and soul singer was a favorite artist.
Hemsworth’s brothers also chimed in with birthday wishes and funny photos of their bro. Liam, of Hunger Games, reminisced: “Happy birthday @chrishemsworth I remember the first time I ever threw a knife at your head, there was this look of pure fear in your eyes. You’ve come a long way from that scared little kid…proud of you. You’re my hero. Love u heaps and heaps.”
Hemsworth tagged his original post #bestbirthdayever but with all the celebrity love and hijinks it’s easy to imagine this one really did take the cake — thus far at least.
