10 Celebrities Who NEED To Guest Star On 'The Muppets'
The latest small screen version of Jim Henson’s creations is coming to ABC, debuting this Tuesday, September 22. The Muppets have always been known for their celebrity cameos, and this iteration looks to be no different. Simply titled “The Muppets,” the show is a mockumentary about the behind-the-scenes production of “Up Late with Miss Piggy,” a fictional talk show airing after “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Elizabeth Banks and Tom Bergeron are appearing as themselves on the premiere, and plenty more Season 1 guests have already been announced. That still leaves room for plenty more cameos, so here a...

Elsa Pataky
Chris Hemsworth's supermodel wife Elsa Pataky was the talk of the town on Monday at the premiere of his latest movie, "Vacation."

The Spanish model, 39, wore a flesh-tone lace dress as she accompanied her husband, 31, to the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, CA, for the film's premiere.

Hemsworth plays Stone Crandall, the sexy weatherman husband of Audrey Griswold (Leslie Mann), and he had to wear a prosthetic you-know-what in a tight pair of underwear for one scene in the film.

He told E! News that filming the scene was a bit "embarassing," but it wasn't about him.

Chris Hemsworth showed off his solid abs as an adult film star on Saturday Night Live.

The Thor star joined cast regulars Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong in a recurring skit in which the two play air-headed former porn stars who now do commercials for various products. Hemsworth joined in as porn star Dong Juan De Dark Hole to help the girls out with a Dolce & Gabbana commercial.

"I'm American, but after my manhood was torn off in a recumbent bicycle, they had to replace it with a wiener from a Spanish dude," he says. "But relax, he was already dead."

What Was The Best Of 'SNL' With Chris Hemsworth?

3/8/2015 11:30am EDT
Saturday Night Live
It might just be pointless to give a thesis statement to an episode of “SNL.” Any detectable patterns may have just been accidental. When the host and musical guest do not bring in a whole lot of baggage, that truth becomes emphasized. Chris Hemsworth was host two months before the release of the next “Avengers” movie. Zac Brown Band have new music, but they are not dominating the mainstream conversation. This was certainly an episode that happened. There were highlights, there were lowlights, and it will lead to a multiplicity of opinions. Here’s one: it was cray-cray.

Hemsworth lampooned his roles in Thor, The Avengers and his overall good looks in one skit after another, surprising both the in-studio audience and at home viewers with his ability to make fun of himself.

As Thor, Hemsworth made a joke of himself in a skit alongside Bobby Moynihan, where the action hero was being interviewed by a reporter after defeating Ultron. "I'm at like an 11 right now!" Thor exclaimed of his excitement of winning the battle.

Chris Hemsworth Fails At 'Dirty Dancing' Highlights ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

Watch Chris Hemsworth Fail At 'Dirty Dancing' In This Week's SNL
Chris Hemsworth is perhaps best known as the actor that plays the powerful Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Thor's superhuman strength is clearly make believe, it's not unfair to expect that Hemsworth himself should be able to handle at least a couple strong man tactics, right?

Well, if the new hilarious promo clips for this week's Saturday Night Live are any indication, then maybe not. SNL's own Kate McKinnon found out the hard way when she asked this week's host to lift her up in the air "Dirty Dancing" style.

Chris Hemsworth and Jimmy Fallon
Chris Hemsworth was a guest of Jimmy Fallon's on Tuesday night's "Tonight Show," and the two stars battled it out in one of the show's recurring games, "Water War."

The game pits Fallon and his guest against each other with five glasses of ice cold H2O and two decks of cards. The game of "War" is played, and whoever has the higher card in each hand gets to dump one of the glasses on his opponent.

The winner gets to drench their opponent with a giant water cannon once all their glasses are empty.

Hemsworth took an early lead, but the host went on a quick roll after that.

The 10 Fittest Male Celebrities In Hollywood
Chris Hemsworth has problems most men would envy. For example, he put on so much muscle while he was preparing to play "Thor" that his costume didn't fit.

The Australian star told the Los Angeles Times in 2011: "I got the part and immediately started looking at the comic books, and the guy is 500 pounds or something and looks like Schwarzenegger. And I thought, 'OK, I'm not gonna get to that.' But I have to get bigger. (The filmmakers) kept saying 'Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can.'"

The "Thor" costume was altered to fit his new shape, and movie execs ordered Hemsworth to g...

Hollywood's Hottest Celebrity Siblings
Hollywood is full of sexy celebrity siblings who share the spotlight, often in the same discipline.

Sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles have both demonstrated their musical chops over the years, but Beyonce is by far the bigger star. However, Solange has made a dent in the fashion industry and is often watched for her clothing and hairstyle choices.

The Hemsworth brothers stormed Hollywood in recent years for their work in popular film franchises such as "The Hunger Games" and "The Avengers." The Australian-born brothers will likely continue to produce box office hits in years to come.

Hollywood's Hottest Shirtless Men
Usually it's the women who are objectified in Hollywood, but the men are fair game too! These guys are hard working actors, singers, and athletes who either take time to work out for their six-pack abs or just let nature take its course.

Professional dancers Val and Maskim Chmerkovskiy (pictured above) make sure they're in good shape for "Dancing With The Stars." The two brothers, who were born in the Ukraine, obviously work hard for their physiques.

Some male stars spend a lot of time bulking up at the gym, while others are slim and trim. Check out our gallery of seriously shirtless cele...

Star-Studded Oscars Presenters Revealed - See The Full List
Robert De Niro, Sidney Poitier, Brad Pitt, and Kerry Washington are among the Hollywood stars set to present awards to their colleagues this Sunday at the Academy Awards.

While we don't know which awards they will be presenting, we can make some educated guesses. It stands to reason that Daniel Day-Lewis will be presenting the Best Actor award, since he won it last year. The same logic points to Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence presenting Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively.

The Oscar producers have hinted at a "hero theme" this year. Neil Meron told EW, "... we have...

Portman explained to the New York Daily News: "It was for re-shoots, and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn't get there because I was working on my own film. And so they put his wife in my wig and costume - that's why it was so passionat...

Chris Hemsworth doesn't want to bare all on screen. The Rush actor has admitted he was anxious enough about showing off his butt in the James Hunt biopic, and he doesn't want to strip off fully for the camera in the future.

The 30 year-old actor told MTV News: "I had enough trouble and fear and anxiety getting the backside out let alone, no it won't be out there."

Although Chris wasn't entirely comfortable with flashing his bottom in the movie, he knew it was something he had to do for his role as the Formula 1 star.

He insisted: "It wasn't my idea. It was on the page. It's an indication...

'Rush' Is One Hell Of A Ride

9/19/2013 8:00pm EDT
'Rush' directed by two time Academy Award winner, Ron Howard ('A Beautiful Mind', 'Frost/Nixon') is supposedly, based on a true story.

I say supposedly, because like many 'true stories', there's a great deal of 'not so true' stuff thrown into the mix.

'Rush' written by Peter Morgan ('Frost/Nixon) depicts the intense rivalry between two Formula One race car drivers.

The flamboyant, English playboy, James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, 'The Avengers, 'Thor') and his opponent, the overly controlled, Austrian, Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl, 'Inglorious Bastards) 

Hunt was the bad boy of racing.  When ...

Chris Hemsworth has already played a god and an iconic "Star Trek" captain and he's just 30 years old.

The actor was born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, on Aug. 11, 1983. Both his older brother Luke and younger brother Liam are also actors. He got his big break in his native country on the soap "Home And Away," which he starred on for three years.
