The fame from being an Avenger hasn’t changed actor Chris Hemsworth. When the franchise kickstarted back in 2011 with the original Thor movie, Hemsworth went from being Liam Hemsworth’s older brother to an overnight superstar. Within the next ten years, he landed two more solo installments of Thor, along with appearing in all the Avengers movies. Ahead of the most anticipated release of his upcoming Thor movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, the actor proves that he is as funny and kind as ever.
The Off-Screen Persona
It seems that Chris Hemsworth replicates Thor’s adorable personality mixed with a charming comedic presence in real life, too! His cast mates have described him several times as genuinely kind. Even with his growing stardom, Hemsworth’s co-stars still see the same old guy in him, who debuted with the cape and hammer 11 years ago. Actress Natalie Portman, who previously played Thor’s love interest, Jane, is coming back with a new twist in this latest installment of the franchise. According to her, Hemsworth still maintains his work ethic and sincere kindness, amidst all his grand success and popularity.
The Future Possibility
Chris Hemsworth has reprised his titular role once again under the direction of Taika Waititi in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. It’s the follow-up to the popular 2017 movie, Thor: Ragnarok, the first Waititi-directed movie in the franchise. There has been a rumor that Thor: Love and Thunder is going to be the last Thor film as more than five solo films would be highly unusual for any Avengers offshoot. But, the enthusiasm of both the actor and director seems to say something else. Waititi and Hemsworth are reportedly very interested in a potential new storyline for future Thor movies, hinting at least another film in the series featuring Hemsworth as the fan-favorite God of Thunder.
There is a brave entrepreneur who launched a line of plant-based makeup rather than using fossil fuels. In June, this very entrepreneur was the recipient of an $8.2 million offer from the venture capital team of L’Oréal. The original collection of the product line includes 12 liquid eye-shadows that are long-lasting, 3 eyebrow mascaras, and 3 waterproof mascaras. 21 lipsticks were then added to this list.
An Expensive Change
The long-wear makeup demand constitutes one-fourth of the makeup market. It has a valuation of $12 billion. There is a vital ingredient that is used in them called isododecane. This ingredient can be obtained and synthesized from the plants but the cost is 100 times more expensive than using crude oils.
A Change is Coming
Luckily for Global Bioenergies’ Marc Delcourt, a company that is looking to use isododecane for cleaner jet fuel, now has a new client – L’Oréal. This cosmetic giant has also been looking for this very chemical in the pursuit of reducing the use of fossil fuels in the cosmetics industry. Delcourt even mentioned in an interview with Bloomberg that cosmetics will be the first industry to stop using oil-based products and lead the world towards greener choices.
The cosmetics are 90% made from plants and olive oil, vegetable waxes as well as isododecane. They will be placed in plastic that is recycled and the packaging will be made from cardboard, with the inclusion of aluminum glass and cases. This will be a great change from the usual line of products that are never in tandem with the green cause. The change has begun and the hope is that soon, every other brand will follow suit. L’Oréal is taking a huge step, and in the right direction, and is surely spearheading the cause of sustainable choices. If things go well, then it will not be long before buying 100% crude oil-free makeup becomes a common practice.
