Chris Hemsworth Is Now Charging His Fans To Take A Selfie With Him
Chris Hemsworth may have a million dollar face but anything above £0 for a selfie is just too expensive.
Thanks to his performances in iconic films such as Thor and The Avengers, the 33-year-old Aussie actor has garnered a steady fanbase over the years. People love Chris Hemsworth in the same way that they love vanilla ice cream. He’s generally just everyone’s cup of tea.
So you can only imagine how much of sour taste it left in everyone’s mouth when the news broke that Hemsworth’s team will be charging fans for selfies and autographs.
Chris Hemsworth will be making an appearance at a comic book and gaming exhibition named ‘Sydney’s Supanova‘ later this month and fans will have the opportunity for meet and greet with him. The only thing is that it’ll cost them a pretty penny.
On the event’s website, an autograph from Chris Hemsworth is charged at about $200 (£119), whilst a photo goes for $210 (about £125). Whilst it can be assumed that this is a decision that has been made on his management’s behalf and not by Chris Hemsworth himself – the fact that fans will have to pay still essentially sucks.
The prospect of fans paying for such perks is not exactly a foreign concept in the entertainment industry however. Last April, Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones, Tudors) charged $80 for an autograph, whilst David Boreanaz (Angel, Bones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) has charged $100 in the past.
Although, with these numbers in mind, it does seem more apparent that Chris Hemsworth’s pricing is a little bit steep. If we consider the fact that most of his fans consist of young millennials, forking that amount over for a simple selfie (let alone an autograph) seems a bit nonsensical.
We vote that you all settle for a little bit of photoshop magic if you’re that desperate for a selfie with Hemsworth. We youngsters need our money for much more important things – like Netflix and Spotify… and avocados.
(Sorry Chris, but we just don’t need a photo with you that badly.)
