Actor,Chris Hemsworth has achieved a lot in his career but now the Thor actor would like to take a step back or in his words “Simplify again”
The 39-year-old discussed with Vanity Fair;
“In order to get into this business, there’s a desperation to it. There are a lot of nos, the odds are against you, so you need to be obsessive about it. And then you get to a point of achieving those things and the obsessive nature is still there. That’s when it gets a little troublesome. That’s when I think you’re running past what you’ve thought was the dream scenario.
“I think I just want to, day by day, simplify again.”
“I think it’s enjoyable when I’m rested and I’m prepared.
“When I’ve gone from one to another straight off the back of each one, then it’s exhausting and you kind of forget why you’re doing it. I’m excited to do things in a more limited sort of – not limited, what’s the word? Curated. In a more curated way.
“I felt a sense of guilt when I would say no to a film before. There was a part of me that was like, ‘Who do you think you are? You’ve never had this opportunity and here it is! You’re going to let it go and pass you by?’
“Now I’m much more comfortable saying no and much more at ease with it all. I’m very thankful for that. I’m glad I’m not having this conversation 20 years from now and my kids have grown up and left my home.”
Good for you Chris.it’s funny how they finally get everything they want and then talk about living “simple”.
Hemsworth also revealed he has a 8 to 10 chance of having Alzheimers;
“It’s not a pre-deterministic gene, but it is a strong indication. Ten years ago, I think it was more thought of as determinant.”
“Yeah, there was an intensity to navigating it. Most of us, we like to avoid speaking about death in the hope that we’ll somehow avoid it. We all have this belief that we’ll figure it out.
“Then to all of a sudden be told some big indicators are actually pointing to this as the route which is going to happen, the reality of it sinks in. Your own mortality.”
Chris is keen to not over-dramatise his health situation. But the movie star – who is best known for playing Thor in the Marvel films – is also determined to safeguard his health.
He said: “If you look at Alzheimer’s prevention, the benefit of preventative steps is that it affects the rest of your life.
“When you have preposition to cardiovascular heart disease, cancer, anything – it’s all about sleep management, stress management, nutrition, movement, fitness. It’s all kind of the same tools that need to be applied in a consistent way.”
He shared that he also plans to discuss his health issues with his children;
“One day I’m sure I’ll bring it up. They probably want to test themselves and [find out,] ‘Are you in the category that’s going to be sensitive to this or not?'”
