AceShowbiz - Chris Hemsworth is cementing his status as Aussie's most benevolent star. On Sunday, October 21, the actor famous for his portrayal of Thor in the Marvel movies uncovered that he and his friend Luke Zocchi had given a helicopter ride to one unsuspecting hitchhiker while they were on their way to his home in Byron Bay.
Through a video he posted on his Instagram account, the "Avengers: Infinity War" star and his pal revealed their plan to pick up a hitchhiker in Brisbane, Australia. "We're going to Byron, we'll give him a lift," he could be heard saying in the clip. Luke then chimed in, "Little does he know we're getting a chopper." A short while later, the two spotted musician Scott Hildebrand on the side of the road.
The duo were quick to welcome Scott to their car, and found out that the musician traveled all the way from Mexico. They continued on to document Scott's reaction as they told him that he will be flying with them to Byron Bay. When they finally arrived at the beach-side town, Chris bid him goodbye saying, "Alright Scotty, back to the hitchiking."
In the caption of the clip, the actor husband of Elsa Pataky noted, "Picked up a hitchhiker, wasn't a serial killer which we were stoked about and just happened to be a kick ass musician Scott Hildebrand @scotthilde 🤙👍#WelcomeToAustralia @[email protected]"
Scott himself has nothing but good words of the Hollywood star and his friend. Speaking to E! News about the once-in-a-lifetime experience, he gushed, "The experience was so cool and unexpected." He went on to boast, "They're so nice and I couldn't believe it was happening."
Despite his fame, Chris is trying to keep his head on the ground. He even admitted recently that he was grossed out by his wealth. "I remember saving up for a surfboard when I was younger," he explained in an interview with GQ Australia magazine. "It taught me so many lessons about appreciation and working hard for something."
