He may be one of Australia’s most famous faces but Nat Barr couldn’t help make a cheeky jab at Chris Hemsworth after he received a nod from the Queen.
The Thor star was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday 2021 Honours List on Monday morning, along with Sunrise sports presenter Mark Beretta.
Nat and her co-host Michael Usher, who was filling in for David ‘Kochie’ Koch, delivered an on-air tribute to Mark who was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for his incredible charity work.
Beretts, as he’s fondly known within the Sunrise family, has raised millions for cancer research through his annual cycling event, Tour de Cure, over the past 12 years.
And, as Michael reminded him, he’s in good company alongside homegrown Hollywood star Chris who was made a Member of the Order of Australia.
But as the Aussie icon’s name was mentioned, Nat decided to pull the comedy card and pretend to not know who he was.
“Who?” she quipped as the two men laughed.
Michael also jumped in to compare Mark with the muscled Marvel superhero, who was recognised for ‘significant service to the performing arts, and to charitable organisations’.
“Well, he’s Thor and you’re normally sore,” he chuckled.
Mark has achieved a staggering amount with Tour de Cure which he co-founded over a decade ago.
The organisation has raised over $70 million, funded 550 cancer research projects and contributed to 47 international cancer breakthroughs.
And despite going through a tough year due to the pandemic which say donations “dry up”, Mark was proud to announce that the charity as on track to raise around $11 million this year.
