Sam Worthington’s lady, Crystal Humphries, had no idea he was famous

Sam Worthington

When Sam Worthington walked the red carpet for the UK premiere of Wrath of the Titans on March 29, he had a new accessory in tow; that is, Sam was proudly showing off his (sort of) new girlfriend, Crystal Humphries. She’s a pretty thing, and as a bartender, she’s a civilian. A story in this week’s Star will even have us believe that she had no bloody idea who Sam Worthington was before he asked her out. Crystal just thought he was some relatively handsome dude who frequented her bar, abut then a buddy of hers clued her into his actual identity. Kaiser was all “bitch please” because Crystal is Australian and may have been predisposed to be more aware of a famous fellow Aussie than, say, myself, who probably wouldn’t recognize Sam Worthington in a lineup. The guy is just so bland looking! Here’s Star’s story:

Sam Worthington

Wrath of the Titans‘ Sam Worthington and his girlfriend of less than a year, Crystal Humphries, are already acting like a happily married couple. “He treats her like a princess,” says a source, noting that Crystal now lives with Sam, 35, in Hawaii and travels with him to film sets and premieres around the world. But when they met, while she was tending bar, Crystal had no idea that Sam was a screen idol. “He’d go in her bar a lot and eventually asked her out,” says the source. “A pal told her who he is. She was shocked!”

[From Star, print edition, April 23, 2012]

Ha ha. It sounds like Sam might be taking some cues from the Justin Bieber school of dating if he really treats Crystal like a “princess.” Sorry, I couldn’t resist bringing that up again.

I can truly buy that Crystal didn’t realize who the hell Sam was just by looking at him because he sort of blends in with the background. While I first thought this was due to him starring in the largely CGI-drawn Avatar, even Clash of the Titans and Man on a Ledge have done nothing to make him more recognizable in my eyes. I guess maybe I have Sam Worthington blindness, so I do believe this story, unlike if Matt Damon’s ex-bartender wife had claimed not to know who he was. Damon has a face, you know? Unlike Mr. DrawingABlank here:

Anyway, at least Sam can sleep slightly easier despite the fact that his latest girlfriend didn’t know he was in movies until someone informed her because now he has something in common with Kevin Jonas, who got married to some chick who cut his hair, Danielle Deleasa, who initially had no idea who the Jonas Brothers were either. Yep, that’s what every guy desires … to be like a Jonas.

    Pretty girl. Is that candy-colored hair the ‘thing’ now?

  2. mln76 says:

    I believe it the guy is bland as hell onscreen …. But I saw him once in person and he’s kind of hot, still when I look at photos nothing.

    • carrie says:

      true! he looks better in real(nice blue eyes and great voice) and i was surprised he’s so short(i’m as tall as him)

      • mln76 says:

        believe it or not he has some sort of magnetism in person which is what I found so sexy. Eventhough he comes off as so bland.

  3. lucy2 says:

    That’s pretty funny, a few weeks ago pajiba had an article about him being the most forgettable face in Hollywood. Even though he’s been in a lot of big movies, everyone kind of forgets he exists.

  4. Rose says:

    Haha ‘mr drawingablank’ …really made me giggle. I like that he dates normal girls.

  5. Carolyn says:

    She may not have known who Sam was…bet she’ll be hanging onto him now!

  6. Zelda says:

    Katie Perry take note: This is how you use crayon colours in your hair.

  7. MrsBarneyStinson says:

    That is one hot man! 😉

  8. Ariya says:

    I really think he just doesn’t photograph well, because in terminator and clash, he was all kinds of sexy.

    • VV says:

      Yeah! When I saw him in Terminator I was truly glued to what was happening to him and his character. I thought he played the part well even if the story and movie itself were ‘meh’.

      He is hot in more beef cakey roles.

    I always wonder how famous a celebrity has to be for you to notice them in real life. I pay a lot of attention to celebrity gossip (obviously) but if I saw one walking around without an entourage or anything, I wonder if I’d recognize them.

    • Vicky says:

      I have to agree with you. I lived in Vegas for years and I walked right by Paris Hilton and didn’t notice until my friend said “Yeah, that is Paris Hilton”. There are alot of very skinny, tall, blondes in Vegas. They all look alike.

  10. Jezi says:

    He is all kinds of hotness! Sorry but he has something on screen that makes you drool.

  11. Sammi says:

    I was in NYC yesterday and Derek Jeter was sitting behind us during dinner. I got excited but my dinner companion (cousin in law) didn’t get how i recognized him or why he was important because “no one watches baseball anymore.” She’s 21 so I cut her some slack but he is so attractive! anyway, so I can see people not recognizing celebrities if they don’t follow them.

    • Esmom says:

      My 12-year-old son’s head would have exploded. He still watches baseball and idolizes Jeter even though he’s been told he’s over the hill.

  12. HoustonGrl says:

    He reminds me of someone…I just can’t think of who it is…

  13. Ari says:

    She is so cute!!! Good Job, Sam! (and yer a fox too)

  14. The Original Mia says:

    I believe her. When Sam was going for the Zach G look, he looked like a bum. She probably thought he had a nice voice and pretty eyes.

  15. Jayna says:

    He is so bland on screen. His co-star, 59-year-old Liam Neeson exudes more hotness.

  16. Esmom says:

    In the one shot where you see him in profile he looks like Eric Stoltz…Earlier generation bland guy extraordinare.

  17. ryan says:

    Whenever I read “Sam Worthington,” I picture Sam Huntington. That’s his name, right? The Jungle 2 Jungle kid?

  18. sup says:

    he looks like ewan mcgregor with the beard. slightly

  19. Serenity now says:

    I tell ya, you got to see him in a small produced Aussie version of Macbeth. His hair is dark an longer. A bit emo-ish but he is hot. He also portrays Macbeth very well. I have seen it a few times even some of the teenage girls (& one confused male) in my English classes agree with me.

  20. Ally says:

    Ha, not surprising. I couldn’t pick some of the new crop of male ‘stars’ out from a lineup. (Chris Evans? Helmsworth? That John Carter guy?)

    There are catalogue models with more memorable charisma.

  21. Susan says:

    I find him highly attractive and not at all bland. But then I’m a white woman who would probably be considered bland also by the author lol

  22. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I need to bartend they are all marrying actors apparently. I can believe it. Even if I ever saw a famous actor I’d assume it was a look alike.

  23. Tiffany says:

    I saw The Debt the other day and I believe that he has the chops and the longevity to stay in this business. So he is not recognizable on the street. So what. When it comes promotion time for films he will be out there and people will know him. I think that he is alright with that.

  24. Veronica says:

    One time i was at the aiport in Toronto picking up my bags and there was about 3 or 4 big fit black dudes standing there waiting for bags and I thought to myself theres some fit boys, they kinda look familiar but naaah who the hell do I know like that? Then later on the trolley to my other flight some girls said did you guys see 50 cent?

    Long story short can totally see how out of their element stars wont be recognized.

  25. Emily says:

    I call bullshit, he’s been in a few things in Australia before he went over to Hollywood. Not anything major, but I knew who he was without seeing anything he’d been in.

  26. Jackie says:

    I believe her, I still dont know who he is!!!

  27. blenheim says:

    yeah right….
