It seems the Australian heartthrob Chris Hemsworth is not only gorgeous but also a sweetheart. According to his personal assistant, Aaron Grist, who’s been with the actor since 2015, Chris has become a very close friend. Hemsworth even threw him a massive birthday party once, with an 80s theme, and a guest list that featured Hollywood’s most famous celebs.
And judging by the dozens of photos they keep posting regularly on social media, it doesn’t seem Grist has plans to leave his job with “Thor” anytime soon. And honestly, with his film career and family of five, Hemsworth sounds like he definitely needs the help.
Melissa Toubati – Meghan Markle
When you imagine being Meghan Markle’s personal assistant, few happy thoughts come to mind. You would think that handling the schedules and arrangements of an actress, a duchess, a mother, and a general person of interest would be a special kind of hell, and you wouldn’t be wrong.
Back in 2018, Melissa Toubati was the Duchess of Sussex’s P.A., but she quit after a short six months. Even with a salary of $80,000, Melissa said the job was way too stressful, and she often ended the workday in tears. It seems Miss Markle is a bit too demanding and anxiety-inducing.
Colin J. O’Hara – Matt Damon
Back then he had no idea, but taking on the position of a production assistant in the first film in the Bourne franchise changed life forever for Colin J. O’Hara. Starting off as a production assistant for the hit blockbuster “The Bourne Identity,” the man transitioned into Matt Damon’s personal assistant in 2002.
Things seem to be going well because the two are still working together. Colin manages Damon’s shooting schedule, day-to-day commitments, meetings, events, etc. In fact, he was by Damon’s side during the entire “Bourne” film series and every movie the actor has starred in ever since. Now that’s commitment!
Coco Schwab – David Bowie
Now, this is an assistant story for the books. Back in 1973, Coco Schwab answered an ad published by David Bowie’s management company – the rockstar needed a personal assistant, and she needed a job. As it turns out, Coco ended up working with Bowie for 46 years, until his passing in 2016.
Coco and David became like family; she saved Bowie’s life many times, helping him with his substance dependencies, severe depression, and the worst parts of the rockstar’s life. Bowie said in an interview once that he wouldn’t have made it without her. When he passed, he left Coco $2 million in his will.
George Koehler – Michael Jordan
You’d think that being one of the world’s most famous athletes, Michael Jordan wouldn’t have time to befriend anyone but his teammates. But as it turns out, the greatest basketball player of all time has a best friend, and it’s his personal assistant George Koehler.
Jordan met Koehler when he was working as his limo driver back in 1992, and the two have been inseparable ever since. In fact, many say that Koehler is one of the few people that can handle MJ’s tough character and super-competitive attitude head-on. He must be one special guy to have that kind of stamina.
