Chris Hemsworth’s wife isn’t happy when he uses her La Mer on his whole body

"Men In Black International" World Premiere

Chris Hemsworth has a contract with Hugo Boss – he’s the face of BOSS Bottled Infinite, their latest cologne. And much like Jennifer Aniston, Irina Shayk and assorted model-actress ladies, Chris Hemsworth will totally give interviews solely to rep his beauty/fragrance contracts. Chris sat down with GQ to chat about living in Australia, his favorite scents, sunburns and a lot more – you can read the full piece here. The best part is where he talks about using his wife’s La Mer as a full-body moisturizer. Some highlights:

What he packs when he’s traveling: “A toothbrush, toothpaste, beard trimmer, a bit of coconut oil, and a moisturizer. I steal various moisturizers from my wife’s section of the bathroom. A little cologne, and some deodorant. Some sunscreen, if I’m in some hotter climates, an outdoor place where I’m gonna surf. I usually have a whole bunch of surfboard wax if I’m going on a surf trip. That usually takes up most of the room in my vanity kit.

The products he borrows from his wife: “She uses a lot of La Mer products, which, you know, cost a small fortune, so she’s less than happy when I use that face moisturizer over my whole body. I found out the hard way when I used her $400 cream for a sunburn one time. That wasn’t the best option… My shoulders were sunburnt one time and I lathered up my shoulders with some La Mer products not realizing how expensive they were. She wasn’t really that impressed. It smells so delicious, I wanted to eat it.

How he uses coconut oil: “Usually just on my face. Especially when it’s really dry and I’m surfing a lot, spending a lot of time in the sun. It’s better for sunburn or dehydrated skin—and much cheaper—than La Mer.

His favorite cologne: “Nothing too overpowering, nothing too sweet. That’s why I like the Hugo Boss stuff. There’s a versatility to it that I’ve always appreciated, and it’s not just for one occasion. But I like to wear it sparingly. Not a whole lot. You want it to be subtle. I don’t like walking into a room and having everybody be aware of what cologne you’re wearing. So the earthier, more relaxed tones.

I bet Chris smells good, no joke. He looks like the kind of guy who would smell like the ocean and something earthy-yet-pleasant. Maybe that’s the next battle for “who is the Best Chris?” That’s one area where I think Hemsworth might win – out of all the Chrises, I bet Hemsworth smells the best. Then Chris Pine, and then a steep drop-off and then Chris Pratt. As for using La Mer as a whole body moisturizer… gotta spend that Marvel money somehow! Seriously, this was a better ad for La Mer than it was for Hugo Boss.

    First world problems honey

    • Lolamd says:

      exactly! but i do love him

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I love La Mer and would use whole line if I could afford it.

      • Enny says:

        If Elsa Pataky is buying that La Mer shit on her own, without her allowance from her husband’s Marvel paychecks, I’ll eat my own foot. 🙄

      • Nana says:

        And what’s the problem exactly? She was a successful actress from a well off family when they got together (which was before he hit paydirt with Marvel). For all we know she supported *him* early on in their relationship….

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      Blah blah rich white guy blah blah
      He is the least exciting film star I can imagine
      For some reason I believe he was typecast in Thor and that often Thor’s intelligence amd self awareness was too great a stretch for Hemsworth’s acting or personal abilities

      • Enny says:

        Oh, co-sign all of that. But Elsa Pataky married him knowing she’d be set for life. I have no problem with that. She doesn’t have to work, and she raises the kids, and that’s all fine. Feminism includes believing that women have CHOICES which may include more traditional gender roles. But I just can’t with her complaining about him using all her La Mer, as if she doesn’t know who’s buying it. I believe she plays an important role in allowing him the freedom to work at his lucrative job, and g-d dammit if she doesn’t deserve some overpriced moisturizer! But can we not with the pearl clutching about how much it costs, knowing that she’s not the one buying it? She’s at peak white privilege. Her well-compensated husband gives her sufficient funds to buy La Mer. When he used it up, I’m sure he bought more. But let’s call a spade a spade.

    Well I’ll give him credit for getting that cash. He added yet another flop to his “movie star” attempts this summer and it’s already rolled off his back…again. Although considering he’s doing Thor 4, I think he’s figured out that no one cares, unless he’s Thor. Self-awareness would be good…self awareness and fragrance contracts.

  3. Rae says:

    I used to find him so meh, then I saw him in Ragnorok with short hair, now I’m all over that man! Haha

    Elsa is a lucky woman…girl just needs to hide her moisturiser!

    • Arizona says:

      I was the same! I never saw the appeal and ever since the short hair in Ragnorak he makes my lady parts beep.

    • tealily says:

      YES! These are my same feelings. It’s like being in the same room as Taika Waititi makes him hotter. Bring on Thor 4! I still haven’t seen the first two and probably won’t.

      • Ashley G says:

        You should watch them if you care about the character but in all honesty they aren’t as good. #3 was fantastic, the comedy, it really was the best one. The other two are okay. He is super cute in a golden retriever way. But the whole Jane (Natalie Portman) character and relationship is boring. He’s best when he’s got a bit of comedy.

  4. Nev says:

    I heard years ago JLO uses La Mer as a full body moisturizer. If I won the lotto I’d definitely try it once Hahahahahah

  5. Digital Unicorn says:

    He’s very much a typical Aussie bloke, although he does push it a bit too much in the media.

    He’s my 2nd favourite Chris, a very close 2nd to Chris Pine.

  6. Arizona says:

    “He looks like the kind of guy who would smell like the ocean and something earthy-yet-pleasant.”

    YES. He’s super hot, charming, funny, seems very nice, and also looks like he would smell amazing. He’s my Best Chris, followed by Chris Evans who is closely followed by Chris Pine. And that’s it. That’s the end of my list.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      Swap Evans and Pine and you’ve got my list.

      Pratt was never on it as he ALWAYS struck me as a total douche-bro.

  7. Venus says:

    I have some Peter Thomas Roth water drench facial moisturizer I use on my body in the summer. It’s pretty great. Can’t afford LaMer, though!

    • Starkiller says:

      You aren’t really missing much-La Mer’s ingredients aren’t that impressive (mineral oil is the second ingredient in the cream). You’re paying for hype and a name, mostly.

  8. Sierra says:

    Forgot about Chris Evans 😱

    • Carolina says:

      Gasp!!~ How can you forget about Chris Evans? He’s the best Chris. God, I love him. Sorry, I am a major CEvans fangirl. I <3 him. 😂 Hemsworth and Pine are tied for second.

  9. Ashley G says:

    He has so much money why would his wife care? If I were him I’d be like don’t i pay for it?

    I’m surprised by the Pine love. I used to like him in Star Trek (also where I first saw Hemsworth and drool) but didn’t he have a relationship with that Olivia chick where he nudes and messages were hacked and released? After that I kind of got douche vibe from him. Nothing kills it more than douche vibe. But his eyes are pretty.

  10. A random commenter says:

    I know he’s not but he kinda sounds like an ad for coconut oil

  11. Bliss says:

    Nice ad for La Mer
