‘He got out of the car and looked at me, and I basically said “I know you”‘, Mr. Leslie said on the Harcourts blog.
He added the elite Hollywood star was down to earth and friendly.
‘Chris was cracking jokes. I would say he is a very intelligent larrikin,’ he wrote.

Unfortunately, Chris did not end up purchasing the $3.2million lot due to zoning issues.
It follows Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky recently announcing their plans to build a second home on a massive 35-hectare site in Byron Bay, New South Wales have been approved.
The Hollywood couple were given the green light in August to build a ‘celebrity guesthouse’ next to their mansion.

Hemsworth purchased the land for $4.25million in 2019 and proposed $4.4million worth of works, bringing the finished property to $8.6million, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Detailed plans show the home will have two dwellings with a total of seven bedrooms; the primary mini-mansion will include five bedrooms while the second home will have two, each with its own ensuite bathroom.
Chris currently lives in a luxurious mansion in Byron Bay with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children.
