Mark Ruffalo has earned himself a bit of a reputation – and not in a good way.

The Avengers: Infinity War star got slightly into trouble with Marvel bosses as a result of not checking his phone. Last October, Mark tried to do an awesome thing for fans when he attended the Hollywood premiere of Thor: Ragnarok — by live-streaming on Instagram.

All went well… until it didn’t.

The well-meaning 50-year-old placed his phone in his pocket. Without remembering to turn it off! The result was fans being treated to audio of the film’s first 20 minutes.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live with his fellow Avengers, all unanimously agreed that Mark is the most untrustworthy.

“My phone was just blowing up. I was getting these texts and I was like, ‘I hope my mom’s okay,” Mark says in his defence. “But I can’t check my phone in the middle of the theatre, that’s rude. Especially in my own movie.”

When bosses became alerted to the fact that their film was being broadcast for the world, they sent someone over, with the actor explaining, “She poked me and she said, ‘TURN OFF YOUR PHONE! YOUR PHONE IS ON, TURN OFF YOUR PHONE!’”

Let’s assume that from now on all telephones have been switched off for Avengers
