Scarlett Johansson compares Chris Hemsworth’s biceps to ‘Thanksgiving turkeys’ in insult match

Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth laid into each other during an insult hurling match on Radio 1 on Thursday. The pair were tasked with throwing catty remarks at one another while on the promotional circuit for new blockbuster Avengers: Endgame. Scarlett kicked things off by telling Chris he was ‘ugly – and everyone’s talking about it’.

Chris was sure to throw back: ‘Well, they say beauty is on the inside. And inside you is just awful.’ At this point, the Thor hunk lost it and burst into laughter – which was supposed to end the game. But the pair continued regardless. ‘You wear grandma cardigans!’ was Scarlett’s next insult.

‘What’s Black Widow’s superpower again? Owning little tasers?’ Chris shot back, referencing the actress’ Marvel character. ‘Chris spends more time in the hair and makeup chair than all of us,’ came Scarlett’s rebuttal. ‘What are you doing in there?’ Chris attacked her timekeeping, at which point she replied: ‘This has now gone beyond insults… we are now just airing out all our problems with each other.’

It didn’t stop there. ‘Can you spell your name? Because no one else can,’ Chris jibed. ‘That cut deep!’ Scarlett said back, before telling him his biceps ‘look like Thanksgiving turkeys’. Avengers: Endgame is poised to crush box-office with a predicted $850 million opening day weekend worldwide.


The flick, which is the final chapter of a story told across 22 Marvel films spanning 11 years – is expected to beat it’s predecessor Infinity War’s eye-watering $640 million worldwide opener, making it the largest debut in cinema history and putting it on course to make a staggering billion dollars in its first week. Last year, Avengers: Infinity War opened to $257 million in the US, and grossed $640million worldwide – the biggest global opening of all time.
