Chris Hemsworth's personal trainer reveals how the actor was snubbed TWICE by Leonardo DiCaprio
DiCaprio dealt Hemsworth a harder blow when he failed to recognize the 'Avengers' actor in the hotel foyer several days later
Chris Hemsworth might be one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but that hasn't saved the star from feeling a bit embarrassed every now and then. According to a recent revelation by his personal trainer, Hemsworth was apparently snubbed twice by a certain A-list star during a press tour in Japan several years ago.
Hemsworth's good friend and personal trainer, Luke Zocchi, recently spoke to Nova 96.9's Fitzy & Wippa on Thursday and revealed that the actor was awkwardly brushed off by Leonardo DiCaprio in January 2014 during the promotional campaign for 'Thor: The Dark World'.
Zocchi's revelation came after Nova's Sarah McGilvray confessed she was rejected by the 'Titanic' star when she asked for a photo, and that was when Zocchi couldn't help but share Hemsworth's own frosty encounter with the 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," he 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."
Zocchi also revealed that DiCaprio dealt Hemsworth a harder blow when he failed to recognize the 'Avengers' actor 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!" said Zocchi.
"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."
Only a couple of days ago, it was reported that Hemsworth had been shooting for a new upcoming Netflix movie called 'Dhaka'. For some of the action scenes for the war drama in India, Chris was seen surrounded by many excited fans, and the star even managed to take a video that he posted on his Instagram, with some of his over-eager fans being a part of the video.
Hemsworth captioned the video, "That’s a wrap for the India portion of our shoot, next stop Thailand. Can't say enough how grateful we are to the people of India for letting us run riot through the streets while shooting what I think could be some of the most intense and exciting action sequences ever done."
