AceShowbiz - Tessa Thompson has "never" eaten a hamburger. The 39-year-old star explained that while she isn't vegetarian, she hasn't even tried a hamburger, a staple for some, at any point "in [her] life". Speaking to Vanity Fair at the outlet's annual Academy Awards party on Sunday night, March 12, she said, "I've never had a hamburger in my life... I eat other things, I've just never had a hamburger. It's the only thing extraordinary that I can still claim."
Meanwhile, she also revealed she had only "recently" eaten an egg for the first time, but she wasn't enamored by the experience. She confessed, "I had never had one of those. I don't think they're great."
Although the reporter noted there are lots of ways to cook and enjoy an egg, the "Creed III" actress, who revealed she "love potatoes," insisted that was her issue. She argued, "That's the problem with them. It's like, pick a lane."
Meanwhile, Tessa, who appeared in "Thor: Love and Thunder" last year, previously admitted she never expected to get into acting. She explained, "I grew up in Los Angeles. I grew up in Hollywood on those very streets. I never thought I would be an actor. There were no actors in my family. I didn't know anybody on television or on a screen. But my dad, sometimes, or my mom would take me as a treat to go to Mann's Chinese or to the El Capitan Theatre across the street. And so then to be in a film, to see children dressed as a character that I play in a film, to remember my childhood self walking on those streets in Hollywood, going to see a film and be transported by it, I felt really overwhelmed actually seeing all of the kids especially, but the adults, everyone in costume and how enthusiastic they were. It's like beyond anything I could have ever dreamed that I would get to be a part of."
