Australia Chris Hemsworth honoured on Queen's Birthday for service to performing arts and charity
'I've Photographed Stars From Nirvana to Kobe Bryant—Here's What I've Learned'
The joy of this life is that I've been able to meet all these people. I shot Brad Pitt before Thelma and Louise came out. He was the nicest guy in the world. It was the same with George Clooney and Jennifer Aniston. I could drop names for days of people I shot before they became big stars and names of people who didn't make it. The difference between them is that the successful ones were genuinely good people to begin with. George Clooney and I used to play basketball, and he didn't take himself too seriously. He just wanted to be an actor.
