Tessa Thompson dislikes some traditional fare.
The “Thor: Love and Thunder” star revealed Sunday night at the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar party that she has never eaten a hamburger.
She told a reporter for Vanity Fair:
“I’ve never had a hamburger in my life,”
When she was asked if she was vegetarian, Thompson answered, “No.”
Before joking, the “Passing” actress added:
“I eat other things, I’ve just never had a hamburger. It’s the only thing extraordinary that I can still claim.”
She also stated that she “recently” tried an egg for the first time. She, on the other hand, was unimpressed.
“I had never had one of those. I don’t think they’re great,”
When the reporter mentioned that there are numerous ways to eat eggs, Thompson responded:
“That’s the problem with them. It’s like, pick a lane.”
Thompson, who dislikes hamburgers and eggs, said she couldn’t get enough potatoes. She said:
“I love potatoes,”
Thompson’s remarks came shortly after the release of her new film, “Creed III,” in which she plays Bianca, the wife of famous boxer Adonis Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan. The “Black Panther” star also directed the franchise’s third installment.
Thompson revealed in a recent interview with Refinery29 that she and Jordan went to couple’s therapy in character to prepare for the film.
“The line sometimes between character and us get blurred because we bring so much of what we’re exploring personally to the characters in general. I’ll say it was an early experience in couples therapy for us both [personally], but it was as these characters, which is very weird. But I think it reminded us of our own personal lives that going to therapy, even when a relationship is good, can be a good thing if you’re trying to just sharpen communication and figure out how someone works. It’s useful in so many relationships.”
Thompson went on to say that over the “eight [or] nine years” they’ve been filming “Creed” movies, they’ve seen the various stages of each other’s lives and relationships and ended up talking about them in therapy.
“So therapy ended up starting at work and getting more personal. Also, it was a chance for us to really talk to a couples therapist and understand what are some of the things young parents who are trying to balance their own dreams and aspirations? What are the themes that you see? What are the things they might be up against? What might be their impediments to happiness or success as a couple? That was really fascinating also to hear from her and bring that into the stew,”
“Creed III” is currently in theaters.
