Chris Hemsworth is an Australian actor with an estimated net worth of $60 million. He was born August 11, 1983 in Melbourne. His mother, Leonie, is an English teacher. His father, Craig, is a counselor for social services. He has two other brothers. Luke is his older brother and actor Liam Hemsworth is his younger brother. He has wanted to be an actor as long as he can remember, and he certainly loved and appreciated the time he spent living and working in Australia where the way of life is so much different there than it is here in America. It was 2002 when he got his first acting gig on a television series with two guest starring episodes. However, it was not until he was able to play Thor in 2011. He had a number of successful runs on soap operas and other televisions shows, including the famous dance competition Dancing with the Stars in Australia where he was eliminated after 7 weeks.
It was becoming a Marvel comic superhero, though, that really made Chris Hemsworth famous. While his handsome features and his good acting are what make people want to get to know him a bit more, it was the body he worked so hard for to become Thor that really made women fall hard for Chris Hemsworth. It was also due a bit to the fact that his younger brother began to rise to success with his new girlfriend, Miley Cyrus, and his acting gig in the hottest movies of the decade, the “Hunger Games” franchise. Suddenly the entire Hemsworth family was well-known, and everyone began to notice both brothers. They instantly became hotter than any other actor in the business and everyone wanted a piece of them.
Chris Hemsworth earned the bulk of his net worth and his fame from Thor, but he’s been busy doing many other things, too. He is a philanthropic type of man with goals that allow him to work hard to earn money for children’s foundations, and he is a family man to the core. He married his wife, Elsa Pataky at the beginning of 2010. She’s a Spanish actress he was introduced to since they shared representation. It did not take them long to realize that they were in love and wanted to spend their lives together, so they married less than a year later in 2010. They welcomed a daughter in 2012 and then further grew their family when they welcomed twin boys in 2014.
Once again, Chris Hemsworth and his family have moved back to Australia. His career has taken off so well that he’s one of the most sought-after actors in the business and he no longer has to live in Los Angeles to make it to auditions. Now representatives and studios call him and he is able to have first dibs on a role before others. His success is only just beginning, too, so you can expect to see a lot more of Chris Hemsworth in the future. His acting is impressive.
