Teenager Returns Thor's Wallet And Gets A Massive Reward

When 17-year-old Tristin Budzyn-Baker stumbled across a wallet filled with cash in a Los Angeles restaurant, he had two choices.

He could keep it and not say anything, or he could return it to its rightful owner.

Luckily, he chose the latter. Good choice, because the wallet belonged to Chris Hemsworth - aka the actor who plays Thor.

He appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show where he recounted the tale. He said: "I looked up at my mom and was like, 'ma, do you know who this is?'


"'We found Thor's wallet!'"

He tracked down Hemsworth and returned the wallet - including all of the cash and cards. Well, obviously. Once you realise the wallet you've found is Thor's you aren't going to chance slipping a few 20s in your pocket.

Hemsworth, however, was pretty shocked. He said: "I expected it was going to be empty, and all the cash was in there."


Anyway, he was so thankful, he got Tristin (a boy scout) on the show where he gave him a wad of cash (amount unknown) and a letter of recommendation from himself for the Eagle Scout award.

Not only that, publishing service, Shutterfly, rewarded him with a cool $10,000.

Not bad for doing the right thing, ay?
