Mark Ruffalo On How He Accidentally Live Streamed The ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Premiere

Thor Ragnarok The HulkMark Ruffalo, who — like Tom Holland — has a reputation for accidentally giving away Marvel Cinematic Universe spoilers, quite infamously streamed some audio from Thor: Ragnarok at the film’s premiere by means of butt-dial. Ruffalo finally breaks his silence about the incident.

When asked about the goof on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ruffalo explained that he knew that he left his phone on following an Instagram livestream of the premiere, but he mistakenly thought he had turned his Instagram stream off when he placed it in his pocket. Because of that, thousands of his Instagram followers got to hear audio from the movie. Ruffalo realized that he was getting a ton of texts during the show telling him that he was still streaming, but he didn’t check them until someone in-the-know warned him about what was going on:

“In all fairness, [the phone] was in my pocket, and [the internet] heard the first 20 minutes. When I knew, first my phone was blowing up and I was getting all these texts and I was like, ‘I hope my mom’s okay.’ But I was like, ‘I can’t check my phone in the middle of the theater, that’s rude, especially on my own movie. Then someone from Disney came up, a woman, and she poked me, and she said, ‘Turn off your phone! Your phone is on, turn off your phone!’ I thought I was going to get fired.”
