Thor's son wants to be Superman, and Aquaman can relate

A big thank you to celebrities' children for keeping them humble. Chris Hemsworth, a.k.a. Thor, posted a photo on Instagram of himself holding hands with his son, who is dressed in a red cape, and wrote, "Holding my little man's hand and asking him the age old question. 'What do you want to be when you grow up' 'Dad i wanna be Superman' Lucky I have two other kids." Other superheroes sounded off in the comments, with Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) laughing at the irony. Jason Momoa (Aquaman) found the situation to be relatable: "yeah wolf wanted to be batman," he wrote, referring to his son. It seems that no matter who your parents are, there's always someone a little bit cooler.

Page Six claims Prince Harry's pants are on fire after he tells a nice little story about bike riding with Archie

Prince Harry is a big ol' LIAR according to Page Six, which reports that the Duke of Sussex has ridden a bike with his dad. Harry had told Oprah Winfrey back in March that one of the highlights of living in California — away from his toxic family and the even more toxic British tabloids — is "sticking [my son, Archie] on the back of a bicycle in his little baby seat and taking him on bike rides, which was something I was never able to do when I was young." Instead of taking this as an adorable story about how happy Harry's family is now, Page Six took it extremely literally by pointing out that there are "several photos" that prove Harry rode "on the back of his father's bike several times as a child." Egad!

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are now the PDA couple at the gym

Most people don't want to make eye contact with another human being at the gym, much less with someone they know, which is why the latest Bennifer update is a doozy! Apparently Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck went to the gym together in Miami recently, where they "kissed in between sets." As one onlooker told Entertainment Tonight, "They went to do their workouts with separate trainers, but were not trying to hide their relationship by any means." Look, we're all here for the Benniferenaissance, but don't they know that everyone hates the PDA couple at the gym? Folks, save it for the ballpark.

Johnny Knoxville somehow made it to 50

Jackass stuntman Johnny Knoxville is 50, a fact confirmed in a new GQ profile about his retirement from the comedy franchise. "You can only take so many chances before something irreversible happens," explained Knoxville, who's previously had part of his head scalped after being catapulted through a barn door, had his crotch smashed by a motorcycle's handle, and had an eye dislocated after going airborne on a brakeless sled — to name only a few of the more memorable injuries. "I feel like I've been extremely lucky," he added, "to take the chances I've taken and still be walking around." Just the news that he'd reached 50 at all surprised many fans; as one Twitter user wrote, "Johnny Knoxville making it to 50 after watching him do Jackass stunts for years only affirms my belief that anything is possible."

Someone stole Akon's Range Rover while he was pumping gas

If it happened to Akon, it can happen to anyone. In an unintentional PSA for gas station etiquette (pay attention, traveling New Jerseyans), the singer left his keys in the ignition of his Range Rover while he was filling up the tank in Atlanta on Monday, and someone hopped in and took off. "It only takes a second," warned the Atlanta Police Department's captain. Akon's phone was in the car which helped authorities track it down Tuesday morning, but the suspect is still at large. The perp might want to brush up on Akon's discography, as "Locked Up" might soon become particularly relatable.
