Robert Downey Jr. Roasts Chris Hemsworth in Funny Walk of Fame Tribute

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Thor franchise star received this accolade, cementing his place among Hollywood’s greats. This recognition followed a mistaken belief years back when Hemsworth confused his handprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theater for a Walk of Fame star.

Hemsworth’s 2019 Confusion

According to an interview with Variety, Hemsworth, during the 2019 record-breaking release of Avengers: Endgame, misunderstood the ceremony commemorating the handprints of his fellow Avengers in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre. He thought he was receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at that time, only to be corrected by someone present.

Hemsworth was quoted saying, “I thought that was the Walk of Fame! So when we did it, I thought, ‘Oh cool, I’m getting a star.’ And someone told me, ‘No, that’s not what this is.’”

Significance of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Star

The Hollywood Walk of Fame has represented a significant Hollywood honor for over six decades, while the TCL Chinese Theatre has been in operation for over nine decades; both have long celebrated numerous Hollywood celebrities.

Securing a star on the Walk of Fame requires more than mere celebrity status though. Supporters must raise sufficient funds to pay for it, thereby implying the recipient’s significance as a star to garner such support in the first place. Recent recipients of this honor include Lenny Kravitz and Macauley Culkin.

Celebrating Hemsworth’s Achievement

Despite the initial mix-up in 2019, Hemsworth has now been rightfully honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony, attended by Robert Downey Jr. and Furiosa director George Miller, among others, was met with much enthusiasm. Hemsworth was visibly moved by the honor and struggled to express his gratitude adequately, calling it a dream come true.

The actor can currently be seen in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, which premiered on the same day he received his star.
