Since I try to use tumblr as a Chris Hemsworth fan blog only, I usually only post interviews/features I find about his life and career that may be of interest to other fans. However, I’m stepping outside of that a little because I can’t stand gossip sites that bash on his wife or try to stir up things about either one of them that are not true, so I just wanted to throw this out there in response to this rumor about Elsa wanting to pose for Playboy. First of all, that rag (The Star) that is reporting this supposed ‘incident’ said it happened in L.A. in early May, which fans obviously know is crap since they were in London. Secondly, while we don’t know them personally, most fans of Hemsworth have seen him enough to find it pretty unlikely that he’d create a scene publicly in a restaurant, when he guards his private life so carefully. Thirdly, I want to give Elsa a little credit here too, because from reading her blog and seeing where her interests and heart is, it’s hard to believe that Playboy is high on her list of career goals either. Ultimately, it’s their business and their life and choices, but here is 2011 quote from an interview with Elsa that expresses her views on it pretty clearly.
You have posed naked in a magazine. Why did you do it?
I did a nude shoot for Elle because it was for an environmental cause about conserving water. I am confident in my body but nudity in films would depend on the script. If I appear naked in a sex scene I have strict boundaries. I wouldn’t do a gratuitous naked scene.
So, with that in mind, I’m gonna assume Playboy falls under the label of “gratuitous”, and take Elsa’s recent good advice from her blog to “not believe everything you read” when it comes to these gossip sites. :-)
You’re great suzacuz!
