Chris Hemsworth says Golden Globes photo made his wife an Angelina Jolie fan

By Emmy Griffiths

Chris Hemsworth has opened up about the seating arrangement at the Golden Globes - particularly his perch beside the one and only Angelina Jolie. While on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Thor star laughed off suggestions that the pair looked close in the snap, explaining that the guest on his other side was his actual date to the awards - Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.

"People were making a big to-do about you sitting next to Angelina Jolie. They were acting... just because your wife didn't make it, I guess she wasn't there," said Ellen. "They sat you next to Angelina and acted like it was some kind of 'thing'."

The father of three responded, "See, you've done what the internet has done, which is you've cropped out my real 'date.' There he is! That's our Thor 3 director Taika Waititi. And, look, Angelina is incredible and wonderful. I'm a fan, my wife's a fan, but she may be more threatened by that guy! His sense of humour and intellect and what he did with Thor 3 is bloody remarkable. And there's a definite love for one another."

He wrote: "Great night at @goldenglobes with my replacement date @taikawaititi and big thanks to my beautiful wife @elsapatakyconfidential for hangin with the kids while I played dress ups and pretended to be cool."
