Here's the Scoop...

How cool is your dad? I wonder how Chris Hemsworth's kids would answer that question.

Chris Hemsworth shared a video Wednesday of his kids watching Thor: Ragnarok.

The 34-year-old Australian actor was all smiles in an Instagram clip as 5-year-old daughter India and 3-year-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha sat engrossed by the film.

The video shows Hemsworth give a thumbs up as his kids watch the movie, which opened in theaters in November. The actor plays Thor in the film and other movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"Just downloaded Thor Ragnarok and the brainwashing has begun, soak it up kids," he captioned the post. "#fatheroftheyear #thorragnarok #thor @taikawaititi @marvel."

Hemsworth shares his kids with wife Elsa Pataky, who can also be seen in the clip. He said in an interview with Good Morning America in October that his children were more interested in being Wonder Woman than Thor for Halloween.

"I said, 'That's awesome, but what about Thor?' At the same time they went, 'No.' I went, 'Who's stronger?' They said, 'Wonder Woman,'" he shared. "I'm happy to play second to Wonder Woman."

Hemsworth also said his twin sons have very different personalities.

"One of them is just a complete nutter and full of life," he said. "The other one's way more calculated and sort of cautious, I guess."

Hemsworth will reprise Thor in Avengers: Infinity War, which opens in theaters May 4.

It's got to be cool to have Thor for a dad, right?

Be Well,
Steve

James Gunn defends Chris Pratt's 'prayer' tweet to Kevin Smith
Filmmaker James Gunn has defended his Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt for sending prayers on Twitter to Kevin Smith after the director suffered a massive heart attack.

Pratt was met with backlash from some commentators on Twitter who noted that prayer would not be able to help Smith, similar to how social media users have told politicians that praying is not enough in the wake of mass shootings.

"So I just read Chris Pratt's tweet to Kevin Smith saying he would pray for him & made the mistake of reading the comments, many of which go off on Chris for saying he'd pray. I think people misunderstand the backlash against 'thoughts & prayers,'" Gunn said on Twitter as part of long response discussing the matter.

"There is nothing wrong with sending someone positive thoughts & prayers. But when this is coupled with inaction when action will benefit the situation, it's empty, If you're offering Parkland shooting survivors prayers, but are unwilling to deal with the problems of gun violence in this country in a practical way, those prayers are empty," he continued in reference to the recent mass shooting in Parkland, Fla. at a high school.

"But no one expects Chris Pratt to shoulder doctors out of the way and perform heart surgery on Kevin Smith. Nor does Kevin need Chris to pay his medical bills. So I think his prayers are appreciated, and about all he can do," Gunn said before noting how prayer and meditation have helped him throughout his life and career.

"If I am ever sick I will gratefully accept any of your thoughts and prayers. And will not be as grateful for some random fan knocking down my doctor and performing his own brand of kick ass surgery on me. Love to you all. Have a great week," Gunn concluded.

Smith announced on Monday that he was recovering in a hospital after suffering from a massive heart attack after performing a new standup special, Kevin Smith Live! at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, Calif.

"Kevin we don't know each other too good but I have loved you since Clerks and I'm praying my ass off for you cause I believe in the healing power of prayer. Can you please pray with me people!?" Pratt said at the time.


Actress Stacey Dash to run for Congress in California
Stacey Dash filed paperwork Monday to run for Congress in California's 44th district.

The 51-year-old actress best known for her role in 1995's hit comedy, Clueless, has become a popular conservative commentator over the past few years and will run as a Republican in the heavily Democratic district south of Los Angeles currently represented by Democrat Nanette Barragán.

The district voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, 83 percent to 12 percent.

However, since teasing a run on Feb. 9, Dash has tweeted criticisms of the Republican Party, including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and President Donald Trump, and its response to gun violence.

"We have a billionaire sec. of education who is against public school we even have a president whose children did not go to public school and there are cries from the federal government to fix this shooting problem?" Dash tweeted on Feb. 15.

So far, Dash is the only Republican candidate in the primary for the 44th district.

Monday night, Dash tweeted that a formal announcement is coming.

"For those mocking for the district I live in...open your minds. It's time to for me to put up or shut up and I want to serve great people," she wrote.

Which singer gave a surprise performance at the Calif. mudslide benefit show?

Katy Perry gave a surprise performance for first responders and survivors of January's deadly mudslide in Montecito, Calif., during a benefit concert.

Perry, a native of nearby Goleta, performed hits including "Roar" and "Firework" at Sunday's One 805 Kick Ash Bash fundraiser at the Bella Vista Polo club in Summerland, Calif. More than 2,000 people attended the concert, People magazine reported.

The benefit concert's lineup also included Katharine McPhee, David Foster, Dishwalla, Wilson Phillips and Ellen DeGeneres. The event raised $2 million for survivor relief, emergency services and equipment.

"The news has moved on, but we have not moved on," DeGeneres said.
