By the hammer of Thor: Teen returns actor's wallet, scores $10K reward

Even Thor needs a hero sometimes.

When Australian actor Chris Hemsworth left his wallet in a Los Angeles restaurant, 17-year-old Tristin Budzyn-Baker came to his rescue.

"I looked up at my mom and was like, 'ma, do you know who this is?'" he recounted Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (H/TMashable). "We found Thor's wallet."

Instead of pocketing it, Budzyn-Baker tracked down Hemsworth and returned the wallet full of cash.

"I expected it was going to be empty, and all the cash was in there" Hemsworth said on Ellen, sitting beside Budzyn-Baker.

In return, the teen scored his family some tickets, a stack of cash from Hemsworth and a $10,000 reward from the publishing service, Shutterfly. Budzyn-Baker, a boy scout, also got a letter of recommendation from Hemsworth for the Eagle Scout award.

"Thank you for being such an honest guy," DeGeneres said.

Thor's brother, Loki, could not be reached for comment.
