Chris Hemsworth may be one of the most famous celebrities in Hollywood, but he’s trying to raise his family out of the spotlight and with at least a little bit of normalcy.
The 32-year-old covers the April issue of Modern Luxury magazine and opened up about his decision to move his family with wife Elsa Pataky, back to Australia.
“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.”
He continued, “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 says having children helped him step out of the “self-absorbed world” of acting. “It’s no longer all about me, which is quite refreshing,” he said. “Once the kids arrived, I was like, ‘Wow, this is what life is about.'”
In fact, when he’s not working, he says he’s at home, waiting “for my kids to come give me a hug and tell me they love me.”
