It’s been more than a decade since Kate Ritchie and Chris Hemsworth stared side by side in the iconic soap Home and Away.
But it’s obvious that the actors have remained close friends over the years.
Kate, 42, was one of Chris and his brother Liam’s popular guests at a star-studded ’80s-themed bash in Crown Sydney on Saturday.
Kate made a fashion statement in a black printed T-shirt and a bright pink lipstick while posing alongside a friend in a picture she shared with Instagram.
She crippled her hair for the party that celebrated the 37th anniversary of Chris’ personal assistant, Aaron Grist.
Aaron has known Chris since high school, and is likely to have seen Kate at home and away in Chris’s years.
They were also joined by Hollywood actors Matt Damon and Idris Elba, who wore the same matching collection of Adidas trackpants and jackets as Chris.
Kate and Chris were co-stars at Home and Away from 2004 to 2007.
The Thor: Ragnarok Star has identified Kate, who is now hosting a Nova FM radio show, as a ‘talented, beautiful woman.’
In the meantime, she called her pal ‘beautiful on the inside’ as he was on the outside.
The actress has been a member of the Hemsworths for more than a decade, and also goes to lunch with Chris and Liam’s friends.
Kate recently spent a romantic vacation in Byron Bay with her boyfriend, John Bell, 25.
Chris, Elsa and Liam are mostly based in Byron Bay, but have travelled frequently to Sydney for filming engagements.
Thor: Love and Thunder started production on January 26th, with Matt Damon joining the cast last month.
Elsa also shot Carmen in the neighbourhood, directed by Benjamin Millepied.
