From 2011's Thor, Hemsworth went onto star in The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and most lately, Avengers: Endgame.

"She's normally like, 'Yeah, see you, daddy. Cool." [This time] she was like, 'Papa! Papa! Papa!' She doesn't always call me Papa, either."

Hemsworth then said: "I wasn't, like, sobbing, but..."
