Chris Hemsworth may be one of the biggest stars of Hollywood, but the actor decided to move his family back to Australia so that they can have a life out of the spotlight, with a little bit of normalcy.
The 32-year-old Thor star said it becomes suffocating to be in public eye always, reported E! online.
“I love what I do as an actor, but when you are surrounded by it constantly, it becomes a bit suffocating. It’s nice to have conversations with people and be a part of a community that doesn’t live and breathe that world,”
Hemsworth said. “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,” he added.
Hemsworth, who has three children with wife Elsa Pataky, 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 said.
