Chris Hemsworth on Hollywood: 'It Becomes a Bit Suffocating'
Here’s what the 32-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On how Hollywood effects you: “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. 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.”
On his kids: “It’s no longer all about me, which is quite refreshing. Acting is the most self-absorbed world, where you are thinking about your feelings. How do I feel in this scene? How do I feel about that? You are constantly having to self-analyze or analyze a character you are playing, so you are internalizing and thinking, thinking, thinking about me. ‘Oh, I didn’t get that…and I wanted that one, and am I any good?’ It’s just a horrible, noisy conversation. Once the kids arrived, I was like, ‘Wow, this is what life is about.’”
On what he does every day at home: “[Wait} for my kids to come give me a hug and tell me they love me.”
