Chris Hemsworth 'was snubbed TWICE by Leonardo DiCaprio in Japan'
- 4 months ago
Chris' personal trainer and friend Luke Zocchi told Nova 96.9's Fitzy & Wippa on Thursday that the actor was awkwardly brushed off by Leonardo DiCaprio in January 2014 during the promotional campaign for Thor: The Dark World.
After Nova's Sarah McGilvray confessed she was rejected by Leonardo, 44, when she asked for a photo, Luke couldn't resist in sharing Chris' own frosty encounter with the Titanic star.
'I have a very good story about DiCaprio. Can I drop it? Poor Chris! We were on a press tour, we were promoting Thor 2 and we were in Japan,' Luke began.
'We were staying at the Ritz Carlton and DiCaprio was there with his whole posse. There was like 10 of his crew there. And Chris was reaching out to his publicist going, "Get Leo, I want to have a beer with him", and then he never replied.'
Luke added that Leonardo dealt Chris another blow when he failed to acknowledge him in the hotel foyer several days later.
'Two days later I remember we were standing in the lobby, it was slow motion, I remember Chris waving, I remember turning, and then DiCaprio marching through the lobby and he just walks straight past!' Luke said, laughing.
'I turned to Chris and I'm just like, "Oh this is so awkward right now", and he's like, "Oh God". He just stood there waving.'
Chris' rise to Hollywood's A-list has been well documented over the years.
After departing Australian soap opera Home and Away in 2007, he landed his breakthrough role in 2011 superhero movie Thor.
He reprised the character in 2012's The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World a year later, and Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015.
