Chris Hemsworth on prioritising family at home in Australia

Australian heartthrob Chris Hemsworth sits down for an exclusive interview with MiNDFOOD as he discusses, family, fan encounters and his flash Byron Bay home.

Chris Hemsworth on prioritising family at home in Australia

Chris Hemsworth, you live in Byron Bay but you’re also globe-trotting from set to set. Where do you feel the most comfortable?

I feel comfortable at home because people are kind of sick of me in Australia, which is nice. And places where I don’t visit too much there tends to be a little more attention and that can be nerve-wracking.

Any memorable fan encounters?

Well, I’ve had some interesting fan mail sent to me. I was sent a shirt, which was nice but then I realised it had been worn before – it still had body odor on it! (laughs)

Both you and Elsa work all over the world. How do you schedule everything with three little kids?

We’ve been lucky that things have fallen in a sequence where we weren’t working at the same time for any great deal of time. But the older the kids get, the trickier it is. My focus becomes more about whether I can shoot at home. I ask questions like, ‘Can I get this project to shoot in Australia as opposed to various spots around the world?’ The kids are planted in Byron Bay, so we have to figure it out.

You’ve been building that house for a while now?

Yes. That’s always fun, isn’t it? (laughs). I think the vast majority of divorces happen between that period of building a house, so I’m thankful we’ve survived that! It’s been interesting deciding tap ware, couches, all sorts of things that I never thought I’d be bothered about.

You lived in America for several years. Did you experience any language issue?

(laughs). You know thongs are not the same thing, right? A thong is not a pair of flip flops in America, as it is at home, as you know. So, my dad was staying at the Beverly Hills hotel. He was checking out and realised he’d forgotten something so he ran back to the reception desk where a group of people were checking out, and he was like, ‘Mate, I’ve just left me black thong in the room. Can you go grab it?’ (laughs) And the whole room went like ‘Argh!’ (gasps). And I was like, ‘Dad, that means something different in America!’ (laughs)
