Chris Hemsworth is best known for his role as the Norse god Thor in the “Avengers” movies. But outside of cinema, Hemsworth has had a hard time fitting in with the progressive left, who have slammed him for violating every progressive tenet, ranging from cultural appropriation to transphobia.
Unable to stop making politically incorrect gaffes, Hemsworth has now taken it upon himself to call for a woman to play the role of the next James Bond.
In an interview with W Magazine about the new film “Atomic Blonde,” the actor revealed that he would like to see Charlize Theron take on the role.
“She embodies every ounce of strength and nobility and dignity and integrity that that character should have,” he said, perhaps forgetting that as a character, James Bond embodies every bit of the “toxic masculinity” feminists complain about. He’s a womanizer, and a drunk, who has on multiple occasions expressed misogynistic views toward women or treated them as little more than sexual conquests who usually end up dead.
Several actors had been suggested to fill in the void left by Daniel Craig, who has said he’d “rather break this glass and slash [his] wrists” than perform as James Bond for a fifth time, despite being contracted to do so. Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba have been listed as potential candidates to play the character, though Craig is now expected to be back for the next film. “The X-Files and “The Fall” star Gillian Anderson expressed interest in the role of “Jane Bond,” if it was available.
“She’s smart as hell. She’s physically able. You know watching her in those fight scenes, doing it in high heels by the way and 8-foot long gown [in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’], was even more impressive,” said Hemsworth of Theron. “And I just think why not? It’s time.”
Theron told E! News said she was flattered by his remarks. “Wow, that’s just so insanely generous and nice. I don’t even know what to do with that,” Theron said. “That’s really sweet.”
There is little doubt that Theron has the acting chops to effortlessly deliver any character she portrays, but perhaps Hemsworth should take a step back and realize she might be better off playing a new character instead of slipping into the role of a character that’s been rode hard and put away wet.
