Chris Hemsworth Reveals He Was THIS Close To Pulling Out Of ‘Ghostbusters’

When the all-female ‘Ghostbusters‘ film was released back in 2016, it sparked a lot of controversy, mainly from angry dudes online who thought women couldn’t possibly kill ghosts.

Chris Hemsworth played a clueless receptionist in the movie, and most everyone loved seeing his comedic side. Even the angry trolls liked his performance.

But in a new interview with Variety, Hemsworth revealed he almost pulled out of the movie at the last minute.

The night before I was shooting, I almost pulled out. Three or four weeks prior, Paul said to me, ‘I’m going to write up the character. Don’t worry.’ And then I got the script and nothing had changed.

Hemsworth’s agent set up a last minute meeting with director Paul Feig, and he assured the actor that there would be “a lot to do” via improvisation.

“I was really scared walking onto that set. I had no real plan, so I was just feeding off of them, and I just felt ridiculous. So I used that,” Hemsworth told the magazine.

By the way, he would have loved to film a sequel, and he’s still mad that the “online fanboys” slammed the movie online without giving it a chance…

That whole period I was like, ‘What ownership do you guys have over those characters? Oh, you watched the film, therefore you should have a say over where it goes?’ I thought it was very unfortunate and kind of disappointing.

  1. For a while, I tried to prepare posts for the blog but I was – and still am – too self-conscious about the possibility that the person sitting behind me might be spying on my words, which is the number one reason of my writer’s block even at work. When I manage to disregard the surrounding noise, you’ll find me reading a book (I’m currently into Murakami) but more often than not, my focus comes and goes as quickly as the misty landscapes through the window. Because browsing Instagram endlessly gets boring, I found myself a new hobby: podcasts (nope, I haven’t forgotten about music but I’m literally listening to it all day at my desk). Slowly but surely, they became my sweet escape from social media notifications even though, up til this day, I still think ads can’t get any weirder than recited in a podcast. So if you have yet to take the plunge, or if you’re simply looking for your next listen, here are my five favorite ones.
