Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett have weighed into the debate on the refugee crisis, calling on governments to increase their foreign aid during a Facebook Live video from their Queensland movie set.
The pair, who are both filming the latest Thor movie on the Gold Coast, appeared live for 30 minutes on the UNHCR — UN Refugee Agency Facebook page last night, where they asked fans to sign the UNHCR’s #WithRefugees petition.
The petition, which has close to 1 million signatures worldwide, calls on governments to “act with solidarity and shared responsibility” to the refugee crisis and will be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly high-level summit next Monday.
In the video, Hemsworth acts as the interviewer questioning Blanchett, the UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, about the time she spent with families in refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan. Take a look below:
