‘Thor’ interpreter reveals how his successful Hollywood career has endangered his marriage to actress Elsa Pataky, whom he married in 2010 and has three children.
Chris Hemsworth began his acting career playing small roles in Australian television series, but it was not until 2011 that Hollywood surrendered to his feet, thanks to his interpretation of the mighty God of Thunder Thor. Since then, he has become one of the highest-paid actors in the film industry and, to the rhythm of the Marvel saga, everything in his life does not stop growing. Now, at age 34, the Australian recognizes that his successful career has complicated on more than one occasion his relationship with the Spanish actress Elsa Pataky(41), with whom he married seven years ago in a surprise wedding and with whom he has three children.
Being a known face is not always easy and it is well know to Chris Hemsworth, who has been linked on various occasions with women of all kinds. The last one, a tall and dark girl who accompanied him on his visit to Barcelona to promote “Thor”, his last film.
Last week the actor gave an interview to Australia magazine in which he claimed to be aware that his wife has given up more job opportunities than him in order to ensure family stability, a circumstance that negatively affects his day to day.
“My wife and I fell in love, we had children, and we did not see each other for several years, but we fell in love again. In terms of work, she has had to give up more things than I have. She would like me to be at home longer and I also want to, but now I am in a very crucial moment of my career. ”
The actor, who moved with his family to Los Angeles from his homeland to disconnect from the stifling atmosphere of Hollywood. “You stop being a person. You stay empty because you live in the world of appearances, on and off the screen, “he has reported. As already confessed in an interview with EL PAÍS in April 2016: “If it were not for Elsa, my life, my career, would be completely different.”
The super hero in fiction also tries to be with his family, combining his role of father with that of husband. The actor said:
“When you have children, all your instincts and all the moments of your time are consumed by them. You do not have anything for the other person, so you have to make sure you have a romantic date every now and then, because most of the time you’re too tired and you prefer to sleep.”
Hemsworth and Pataky, who were married in Indonesia in 2010 a few months after meeting in translation classes, are the parents of three children: five-year-old India and three-year-old Sasha and Tristan twins.
The actor claims that their relationship has not been a path of roses, they have suffered both sides ups and downs in the relationship, but nevertheless always manage to get ahead and many times thanks to their children. An unshakable sentimental bond that is reinforced every day thanks to the energy of the three little ones.
Both Hemsworth and Pataky are very active on social networks – he with 11.5 million followers and she with 1.4 million. On their profiles they record their love and even use them to settle any rumors about their relationship, as he did the actor last year when some media claimed they had separated.
