Tab creates fake drama between “Thor” stars Anthony Hopkins and Chris Hemsworth

“There’s already drama behind the scenes of the highly anticipated flick ‘Thor,’” claims the New York Daily News, adding, “and we hear it’s being stirred up by none other than Anthony Hopkins.”
According to the paper, Hopkins is “constantly trying to ‘direct’ Chris Hemsworth,” who stars as Thor. Hopkins plays Thor’s father in the film, based on the comic book.
A Daily News “source” says, “Anthony has not tried to hide his disapproval of Chris’ acting skills,” who the “insider” notes, “respects Anthony a great deal, and it looks like he’s trying to grin and bear all of his criticism.”
Still, says the tab, director Kenneth Branagh is “annoyed” with Sir Anthony.
So is there really more drama between the stars than in the film’s script?
Gossip Cop reached out to a Marvel rep, who called the Daily News’ article, “100% false.”
But that’s not all. We also contacted Hopkins’s wife, Stella Hopkins, who has been fielding calls for the legendary star. She told Gossip Cop the report was a “horrific, vile lie,” and that they are going to “talk to [their] lawyers.”
Stay tuned for the sequel.
