Hemsworth pranked by son on 35th birthday

CHRIS Hemsworth was pranked by one of his kids on his 35th birthday.

The Aussie actor shared a photo of his birthday cake on Instagram and revealed in the caption that he later ended up with icing all over his face.

"Immediately after this shot was taken my son viciously attacked me from behind (due to his ninja training) and slammed my face into the flaming candles," Hemsworth wrote. "I'll now be playing Deadpool if @vancityreynolds (Ryan Reynolds) pulls the pin."
