The Clean Cut: Boy Scout applauded for returning Chris Hemsworth's wallet

Posted April 24

What would you do if you found Thor’s wallet?

When actor Chris Hemsworth, who is known for his role as Thor in Marvel Cinematic Universe films, recently left his wallet on the table of a restaurant in what he called a “rough area,” he didn’t expect to get it back. But Tristin Budzyn-Barker, a 17-year-old young working toward receiving his Eagle Scout award, found the wallet and immediately returned it with a note.

“P.S. Mom saw you were on 'Ellen' this week and asked if we could have some tickets,” Budzyn-Barker wrote in the note.

Not only did Hemsworth invite the young man and his mom to sit in the audience of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” but he also gave Budzyn-Barker the cash from his wallet and wrote him a letter of recommendation for his Eagle Scout award. DeGeneres then rewarded the honest act by giving Budzyn-Barker a new wallet and $10,000 from Shutterfly to help him prepare to pay his college tuition.
