Early life and education
The social services counsellor Craig Hemsworth and English teacher Leonie (née van Os) Hemsworth welcomed Christopher Hemsworth into the world on August 11, 1983, in Melbourne. After Luke (born 1980) and before Liam (born 1990), both of whom are actors, he is the second of three boys.
His paternal line consists of English, Scottish, and German ancestry, while his maternal grandfather is a Dutch immigrant and his maternal grandmother is Irish. He was raised in Bulman, Northern Territory, in the Outback, and in Melbourne.
Before his family relocated back to the Northern Territory, he finished secondary school at Heathmont College. He then moved to Phillip Island a few years later.
Parents and family
Craig Hemsworth, Chris Hemsworth’s father, was a social worker. Leonie Hemsworth, a teacher of English, is his mother. Both of Chris Hemsworth’s brothers are performers.
His younger brother Liam Hemsworth is a Hollywood performer best known for his part in “The Hunger Games” film series, while his older brother Luke Hemsworth is also an actor from Australia. Of the three brothers, Chris is the middle child.
In 2002, Chris Hemsworth made his acting debut in modest roles on Australian television programmes like “Guinevere Jones,” “Neighbours,” and “Home and Away.” His portrayal of Kim Hyde on “Home and Away,” which he portrayed from 2004 to 2007, helped him earn some notoriety in Australia.
Hemsworth relocated to Hollywood in 2009 in order to advance his profession. He originally had trouble finding employment and thought about going back to Australia, but he eventually got the part of George Kirk in the 2009 movie “Star Trek.” Despite the limited size of his job, it gave him exposure and opened up other opportunities.
His major break came in 2011, when he was chosen to play the title role in the Marvel movie “Thor.” Hemsworth’s performance as the superhero was lauded, and the movie was both a commercial and critical triumph.
He later returned to play the same character in two sequels, “Thor: The Dark World” (2013) and “Thor: Ragnarok” (2017), and also in a number of other Marvel movies, such as “The Avengers” (2012), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015), “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018), and “Avengers: Endgame” (2019).
Hemsworth has acted in a number of blockbuster films in addition to his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including “Snow White and the Huntsman” (2012), “Red Dawn” (2012), “Rush” (2013), “In the Heart of the Sea” (2015), “Ghostbusters” (2016), “Bad Times at the El Royale” (2018), and “Men in Black: International” (2019).
Early in 2010, Hemsworth started dating Spanish model and actress Elsa Pataky. In December 2010, they got married. India Rose, a daughter, was born to the couple in May 2012, and Sasha and Tristan, twin males, were born in March 2014. The family relocated to Byron Bay, New South Wales, in his home country of Australia, in 2015, leaving Los Angeles behind.
Thalison Soares is the Brazilian ju-jitsu instructor for Hemsworth’s kids, and he frequently takes them to regional competitions.
By 2023, Chris Hemsworth’s net worth is estimated to be $140 million.
