Venice is a city famed for its winding canals, striking architecture, and beautiful bridges. Or at least so I’ve heard – I consider Bognor Regis as an exotic vacation.
Venice is also home to some of the most aggressive, demeaning trash talk you’ll ever see Hollywood A-listers partake in.
As part of Joe and Anthony Russo’s annual fantasy football league, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Pom Klementieff took out her anger on her fellow Avengers co-star, Chris Hemsworth, with the help of Simon Pegg.
And if that doesn’t already sound beyond perfect, brace yourself for the cherry on top that is Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson’s cameo. (Ironically, I don’t like cherries, so that analogy doesn’t really stick, but whatever.)
During production on Mission: Impossible 7, Pom sang – in a video directed and shot by her co-star, Simon – “You think your balls are the greatest, but I’m going to smack your bottom.
“Give up your fantasy, Christopher. Your musculature is quite pathetic; your hammer is teeny tiny; I am the best of the Avengers.
“I’m going to make you shrivel up. You’ll be extremely embarrassed,” continued Pom. “Like when Captain America accidentally posted an intimate photograph of his genitals.”
I can only imagine how awkward it’ll be on set of Thor: Love and Thunder… Personally, Chris, I do think your balls are the greatest, so if you want me to replace Pom and play Mantis, I’m game.
