Chris Hemsworth Opens Up About Family Life In Australia

'We can have a normal existence'

Chris Hemsworth might be hot property in Hollywood right now, but the Aussie hunk is a family man at heart.

The 32-year-old opened up about relocating his family back home, including wife, Elsa Pataky, and daughter India, 4, and twins Tristan and Sasha, 2.

“We can walk straight down to the beach, we can have a normal existence and the kids have a hell of a lot more fun than they did back in the States,” the Thor star told Woman’s Day of their new life.

The down-to-earth couple now call NSW’s Byron Bay home and are often spotted around town shopping and dining with their kids.

Back in March, the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ opened up about why they decided to move and how at home, he’s just ‘Dad’.

“It’s no longer all about me, which is quite refreshing,” he told Modern Luxury. “Acting is the most self-absorbed world, where you are thinking about your feelings… You are constantly having to self-analyze or analyze a character you are playing, so you are internalizing and thinking, thinking, thinking about me… It’s just a horrible, noisy conversation. Once the kids arrived, I was like, ‘Wow, this is what life is about.'”

“L.A. is a tough place to get around with kids,” he continued. “There’s not a whole lot of foot traffic. It was all about loading up the car and car seats. Here [in Australia], we just walk out the door and head to the beach down the street. It’s a much more simple life.”
