When they're not attending glitzy movie premieres or rubbing shoulders with Hollywood's elite, it turns out that Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky aren't too famous to get their hands dirty.
In a series of videos posted to her Instagram stories, mum-of-three Elsa revealed that she and her Thor star husband took a turn at volunteering a local Byron Bay school canteen after a shock stabbing on Tuesday.
In Elsa's videos, she and Chris were shown wrapping up sushi rolls for the kids and storing them away in containers before asking their fellow canteen workers how they did.
"Pretty good, not too bad," one joked. "Let's see how he goes on Friday!"
The Spanish-born actress captioned one of the videos, "Another dad to help in the canteen today!" and another "Always helpful to have a superhero in the kitchen," hinting at his latest role in the Avengers Endgame blockbuster.

But despite the fun in the kitchen, the area was rocked by a shocking crime the same day.
Reports have surfaced that Byron Bay Public School went into lockdown shortly after 7am on Tuesday morning after a teacher was stabbed.
According to the Gold Coast Bulletin, police say a 31-year-old woman stabbed Year Four teacher Zane Vockler with a pair of scissors and has been charged.

The Hollywood couple, along with their three children India, six, and five-year-old twin boys Sasha and Tristan have lived in the beachy town of Byron Bay since 2014 and originally moved to escape the paparazzi.
"I really wanted to be in a place where I'm out of reach to the media … and in Byron we just feel like locals," Elsa told news.com.au in 2017.
"People really respect us … and it's what I always dreamt of giving to my kids."
But they do have one disagreement when it comes to parenting that doesn't match the boho, chilled vibes of the northern NSW area.
"Everybody here, when they tell off their kids, they're like (mimics whispering), but we are totally opposite," Elsa told a local publication.
"We are loud and sometimes Chris gets really embarrassed. He's like, 'Stop it, everyone's looking at us.'"
