Tessa Thompson ‘never had a hamburger’ – and has a problem with eggs
Tessa Thompson has revealed that she has never eaten a hamburger in her life and has also revealed some of her more unusual food preferences.
The Thor: Love and Thunder Star attended the annual vanity fair Oscars afterparty on Sunday night (March 12), but didn’t line up for In-N-Out burgers with her peers.
She told Amelia Dimoldenberg, who reported from the party, “I’ve never had a hamburger in my life.”
Dimoldenberg seemed incredulous at the confession and asked if Thompson was a vegetarian.
She clarified that she wasn’t, adding, “I eat other things, I’ve just never had a hamburger.
“That’s the only exceptional thing I can claim.”
The 39-year-old actor added: “I recently had an egg and I’ve never had anything like it. I don’t think they’re great.”
Dimoldenberg, known for hosting her YouTube show chicken shop dateShe countered Thompson’s claim, saying, “Eggs are so cool. They’re so versatile, you can have scrambled eggs, you can have a boiled egg…”
But the Creed III Star said that what she felt was eggs’ versatility was exactly what was wrong with them.
“That’s the problem with them. It’s like, pick a track,” she said.
Fans took to social media to express their shock at Thompson’s food choices, with one person writing: “I’m worried about Tessa Thompson, she’s never had an egg or a hamburger. How?”
“I can see eggs but I’ve never had a hamburger, that’s wild,” said another.
However, Thompson confirmed that not all of her food preferences are controversial and she “loves potatoes.”
But some commenters pointed out that potatoes are also a very versatile ingredient and can be cooked in many different ways.
“I was thinking of potatoes when she said, ‘pick a trail’, lmao [sic]’ said one person.
Thompson recently starred in the newly released film Creed III as Bianca, wife of boxer Adonis Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan.
