Aussie actor and Avengers star, Chris Hemsworth, has been accused of irresponsible parenting after ignoring height restrictions on a Disneyland ride.

Aussie heartthrob Chris Hemsworth has been accused of being an ‘irresponsible parent’ after he told TV host Jimmy Kimmel that he had snuck his daughter onto a Disneyland ride news.com.au reports. After his daughter Isabella asked to go on The Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout ride, but was too short, Chris decided to take matters into his own hands…

Getting Creative

When she was told that she couldn’t go on the ride, Isabella became upset. “I took my daughter on it a couple of years ago when it was previously called Tower of Terror or something,” he told Jimmy. “She was really upset and I was like, nah, forget this. Come here.” Chris then placed two Snickers bars inside his daughter’s shoes, allow her to meet the height restriction of 114cm. The ride involves a rapid drop of 40m and reaches speeds of over 60km/h, with Chris admitting that the decision probably wasn’t one of his best parenting moments. “I was like maybe there’s a reason there’s a height sign!” he said.

Call Me Irresponsible

Chris’ Avengers co-star Scarlett Johanssen couldn’t believe the applause he received from the studio audience after sharing his parenting hack. “It’s wildly irresponsible and you’re all cheering!” she said jokingly. Even though the story provided plenty of laughs, Chris was quick to discourage other parents from doing the same. “We’re at the top and I’m looking at her and she’s strapped in and the seat is massive on her,” he said. “So don’t do that!”

While we think Chris’ solution was creative and hilarious, we definitely don’t think this is a hack you should try with your own kids! Unfortunately, Thor won’t be there to come to the rescue if you do…

Do you think that Chris was being ‘irresponsible’ to take his daughter on the ride? Share your thoughts in the comments.


  • She mustn’t have been far from the height requirement. Still, if something had’ve happened, you can’t go back in time.

  • Whilst this is funny it’s quite dangerous.

  • He acknowledged it probably wasn’t a good idea we all make decisions we wouldn’t with hindsight.

  • Safety rules are there for a reason – he was very irresponsible for doing it and even more irresponsible for sharing what he did and how he did it. Should someone be hurt by following his actions, I do hope he will speak out.

  • I don’t think it was a very wise move.

  • It probably didn’t actually happen and was just a funny story to tell.

  • Aw Chris, so you’re not perfect. I wouldn’t have done this… but clearly many would.

  • I think we have all been tempted to do this – but think the better of it. Shame Chris!

  • This was a bad judgement call. Luckily no one was hurt.

  • probably not the best thing in this case but I will say some of the rides have ridiculous restrictions in Australia.

  • Pretty silly thing to do especially as the limits are no doubt for safety reasons.

  • At least he realised he made a mistake.

  • I saw this interview and didn’t think much of it but seeing this article made me think about it and although I understand why he did it I would have never done this myself.
