Chris Hemsworth Stuffed Snickers In His Daughter's Shoes To Ride Tower Of Terror
Chris Hemsworth was joined on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' by his 'Avengers: Endgame' colleagues Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., and Paul Rudd.
Appearing on the talk show to promote the highly-anticipated superhero flick, Scarlett Johansson chatted about the time the cast went to Disneyland to try out the 'Guardians of the Galaxy -- Mission BREAKOUT!' ride, revealing that Robert Downey Jr. refused to get on after he “almost yakked” on it during his kid's birthday a few weeks beforehand.
This prompted Aussie hunk Chris to remember a hilarious (and terrifying) anecdote about the time he took his six-year-old daughter, India, to the same ride back when it was called the 'Tower of Terror'.
"I took my daughter on it a couple of years ago when it was previously called the Tower of Terror or something," Hemsworth said, adding that India was too short to go on the ride.
"She was really upset," he said, "And I was like nah, forget this. Come here."
That's when he thought he had a brilliant plan to skirt the system...
"I grabbed a couple of Snickers bars and slammed it in the back of her shoe under the heel. I walked up [to the Disneyland staff], was like, 'What about now?' And they're like, 'Okay, in you come,'" Hemsworth said to rapturous applause from the audience.
ScarJo then chimed in, saying, "It's wildly irresponsible as well, and you're all cheering!"
Initially thinking his plan worked flawlessly, it wasn't long before he realised it may not have been his best parenting decision.
He admitted, “It gets worse,” adding, “We’re at the top and I’m looking at her and she’s strapped in and the seat is massive on her and I’m like ‘We beat the system, honey!’”
However, when the ride dropped at a swift speed, India wasn’t secure in her seat and he had to grab her so she didn’t injure herself -- or, you know, fly out of the ride completely.
“I grab onto her, she is screaming the whole way down,” he explained, adding, "I was like maybe there's a reason there's a height sign."
A shocked Robert Downey Jr. then exclaimed, "Maybe!?"
Luckily, India was fine and Chris learnt an important lesson about parenting and obeying the laws of theme parks.
"So, don't do that. She's fine, she's well. I'm her hero."
