When Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth tied the knot in December, they gave the public a taste of their ‘secret’ Tennessee ceremony. The destined couple welcomed us into their private nuptials by way of Instagram, with three dazzling wedding photos posted on Valentine’s Day. But in February, by a stroke of luck, rare shots of the newlywed couple on their special day resurfaced when Chris Hemsworth’s personal wedding pictures were accidentally sent to a Swedish tourist. How did this happen, you ask?

Let us explain.

Chris apparently sent a roll of film with over 200 wedding photos to an Australian photo developing store. Twenty-one-year-old Elvira Nordström expected to receive snapshots from her recent road trip at her email address when she serendipitously received Hemsworth’s order instead. (Guests weren’t even allowed to take pictures at the wedding. When Miley and Liam's friend, Conrad Carr, posted snippets of the ceremony to Instagram, the couple weren't so happy.) So you can imagine Nordström’s shock when she found these never-before-seen goods in her possession.

What’s a fan girl to do? Thankfully, the lucky gal didn’t leak them to the public. "This girl put it up on her Instagram and said, 'Hey Chris, I've got your photos.' And someone then told me and I just ended up... [getting] a hold of her phone number, her contact, and called her up," Hemsworth revealed Wednesday on the British morning show, This Morning.

The 35-year-old was so relieved when he spoke to Nordström and said "she couldn't have been kinder." The email link was deleted right away from the recipient's phone and sent to its rightful owner. "She said, 'Don't worry. I'm not going to do anything with them. They're safe,'" he explained. "It was a big relief. There are a lot of different ways that could've gone."

The Avengers: Endgame actor also opened up more in his interview about the frightening debacle that almost cost his family their privacy. "I have this old film camera and I get them developed. I'm a regular at this spot and I have [been] for years," Chris explained. "And I was at the wedding and I was one of the few people who was taking photos and they said, 'Oh, where are you going to get them developed?' I said, 'Oh it's fine. I got this little spot and it's all good.' "

There are two important details we gleaned from this story: Chris Hemsworth is majorly old-school (who still develops his film?) and there are nice people out there who won’t sell out their celebrity crushes for money or attention.
