It’s rare to find someone who would go after Dwayne Johnson on social media due to his muscular mass and ironclad charisma. Who else except Thor would dare to (gently) make fun of the highest paid actor in Hollywood? No one. On his Instagram account, Chris Hemsworth has been having fun copying The Rock.
So in Thailand, the Australian actor went to a really small gym to do some training.
‘Morning everybody, we’re here in Thailand, look at this. I’m taking a leaf out of The Rock’s book and created our own little personal place of solitude. He calls his the Iron Paradise, so I’m working on a name. Currently I’m thinking maybe the Plastic Paradise due to the plastic-coated dumbbells. But no, plastic is destroying the planet let’s do away with that one. We’ve got some steel objects, Steel City? Hmm, kind of indicates criminal activity doesn’t it?’ jokes the actor.
Going further than The Rock
But what Chris Hemsworth actually does here, is call on The Rock’s motto.
‘The other thing that the Rock always says is be the hardest worker in the room. That’s great, but I’m gonna evolve on that and take it one step further. Be the only worker in the room, therefore by default, you are the hardest worker in the room. Ey? Simple as that.’
In his second video where he is in the middle of training, Chris Hemsworth also says ‘Dude, get out! Get out! No, no I can’t be the hardest worker in the room if I’m not the only worker in the room.’
This troll is all in good faith on Thor’s part, but it’s not the first time that the two actors have teased each other on social media. For Chris Hemsworth’s birthday, Dwayne Johnson posted a message saying he was the fourth best Chris in Hollywood, after Chris Pratt, Chris Pine and Chris Evans. As a response, the Australian posted a message when the Avengers took over Rampage as number 1 in the box office. And now all that’s left to do is wait for Dwayne Johnson’s response in this war of wits.
