Hemsworth’s most famous and highest-paid role is Thor, the God of Thunder in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although Robert Downey Jr. is the highest-paid actor in the MCU, Chris Hemsworth comes second in line right next to his co-star, Scarlett Johansson. Despite Thor being his most popular and loved character, Hemsworth has also starred in some blockbuster hits like Men in Black: International (2019), The Cabin in the Woods (2012), Rush (2013), Snow White, and the Huntsman and Extraction (2012).

It is interesting to see how Chris Hemsworth has grown over the years and now become one of the leading men in Hollywood. Apart from acting, Chris Hemsworth has also been passionate about modeling and fitness, which have both been an important part of his journey.
Christopher Hemsworth was born on the 11th of August, 1983 in Melbourne, Australia. Next year, Hemsworth will enter the 40 club, but he is currently enjoying his last year being in his 30s. He has two brothers, Luke Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth, who are both well-known actors, and although it isn’t a competition, Chris is definitely the most popular among the three. Before Chris made his way to Hollywood, he was a huge part of Australian television. He played a role in the Australian soap opera Home and Away from 2004 until 2007.
Chris Hemsworth also appeared on Dancing with the Stars Australia but was eliminated six weeks later. Even after entering Hollywood, Hemsworth made sure he stuck to his Australian roots in as many ways as he could. In 2009, Hemsworth was a part of two movies, Star Trek and The Perfect Getaway, which kickstarted his career in Hollywood. However, Hemsworth struck a pot of gold in 2011 when he was cast as Thor for the first installment of the Thor movies. He was then a part of the Avengers movie in 2012 and the rest is history.
If you take a look at Chris Hemsworth’s Instagram, you can tell that the man is happily married and has some of the cutest children. Hemsworth is married to Elsa Pataky, a Spanish model, and actress. This lovely couple has been together since 2010, and have three children together – India, Tristan, and Sasha. Although Chris has had several opportunities to live in LA with his family given his work schedule, he was keen that his children grow up in Australia, just like he did. Elsa and Chris have some very sweet moments documented on social media through their posts and stories, and it is heartwarming how supportive they have of each other. Hollywood actors are usually frowned upon for not being able to maintain a married life, but Chris has proven them all wrong.
However, Elsa wasn’t the only one that Chris dated since he became an actor. Chris briefly dated Isabel Lucas, an Australian actress, and his co-star on the Australian soap opera, Home and Away. Other than these two ladies, Hemsworth hasn’t been part of any rumors or been linked to any actresses or co-stars since 2010!

He did an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair where he talks about life, death, and how moments are simply fleeting and that he wishes to take some time off to be with his children and his wife. The internet has shown him nothing but endless support for this decision and we all wish him nothing but the best, and of course, good health.
Chris Hemsworth might be taking a break from movies and shows for a while, but that doesn’t mean he won’t return to them in the future. We still believe there’s a lot in store for Hemsworth, especially in the MCU, because he truly is irreplaceable. Hemsworth’s energy, sense of humor, and zest for life are truly a breath of fresh air, and he is the gift that keeps on giving!
