Idris Elba and Liam Hemsworth are making Canadians jealous of Montreal

Temperatures may be dropping in Montreal but it's getting hot in la ville since Idris Elba and Liam Hemsworth came into town. 

Yes, you read that right: two of Hollywood's most desirable humans were spotted in Montreal in the last two days. 

Not together — that would have been too much facial symmetry to mathematically handle — but the actors have been respectively heating up the 514.

People have effectively lost their minds on social media since hearing the news, and are apparently on a mad hunt for 'Idris and Liam Do Montreal' content. 

One lucky fan snapped a selfie with Liam Hemsworth at the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport yesterday as he landed in the city from, judging by his Instagram account, Hamilton, ON. 

It appears he made a quick stop at Paramount as well (is that a falafel wrap or chicken shawarma in his hand?) where a staff member managed to get a photo. 

@idriselba came by for some hot ones today.

Just the day before that, Idris was spotted taking a photo at St-Viateur Bagel, effectively putting an end of the St-Viateur vs. Fairmount conversation (for today, anyway). 

Fresh and crispy fall in Montréal

By yesterday evening, Hemsworth had already posted an obligatory photo at Mont Royal, with the caption, "Fresh and crispy fall in Montreal." 

Fans are really having a good time with the whole affair: who needs real life interaction when you have Photoshop?
