Chris Hemsworth's First Job As A Teen Was Cleaning Breast Pumps

A teen's first job is usually a paper route or a stint at a fast-food chain but Chris Hemsworth has revealed he joined the workforce with a much more unusual profession.

The 'Men In Black: International' star joined Jimmy Fallon and 'Silicon Valley' actor Kumail Nanjiani for a round of True Confessions on 'The Tonight Show' and started the game off with a story that definitely seemed like an intricate pile of lies.

"My first job was cleaning out breast pumps," he told the pair with a straight face.

After being quizzed by the puzzled Nanjiani and Fallon, Hemsworth said he was 14 at the time and that the role occasionally involved repairing breast pumps as well as cleaning out the dried milk from the contraptions.

He said that pharmacies would rent the pumps out to mums and they'd come back to him at the unspecified workplace "covered in milk" where he'd then get to work with a toothbrush to scrub them clean.

Kumail argued that the tale had to be true because, otherwise, Hemsworth would be a bit of a "psychopath" for inventing such a specific lie.

But Jimmy was convinced that there was no way Thor's job as a teen involved scrubbing dried milk, and the pair eventually agreed that Hemsworth had been fibbing.

"It was the truth!" giggled Hemsworth, explaining that the gig was at a Fisher & Paykel type company "that makes fridges and breast pumps".

Nanjiani then made a very good point, questioning whether the mothers who once sent their dirty pumps back for cleaning had any clue that international hunk Chris Hemsworth was the one gently scrubbing their milk away.

"Can you buy them on eBay?" Nanjiani jokingly asked.

It's proof that everyone has to start somewhere, so if you're a teen dreaming of a career in Hollywood, remember that you might have to scrub some breast milk along the way to make it to the top.
