Chris Hemsworth covers Modern Luxury, explains why he moved his family back to Australia
Thor and The Avengers actor, Chris Hemsworth covered the April issue of modern luxury where he talked about why he relocated his family to Australia. He said he made the decision with his wife Elsa Pataky, to move back to Australia to raise their three kids – daughter India, two, and 12-month-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha.
“I love what I do as an actor, but when you are surrounded by it constantly, it becomes a bit suffocating,” he explained to the publication. “It’s nice to have conversations with people and be a part of a community that doesn’t live and breathe that world.”
“We were living shoulder to shoulder in the suburbs and thought that’s not how we want our kids to grow up. Moving to a kind of farm setup back here on the coast in Australia has been the best thing.”
Speaking of his kids, Hemsworth said having children helped him step out of the “self-absorbed world” of acting.
“It’s no longer all about me, which is quite refreshing,”. “Once the kids arrived, I was like, ‘Wow, this is what life is about.'”
He also explained that he no longer needs to live in Los Angeles to secure work, having established a reputation as a leading man in the movie industry.
