Chris Hemsworth’s a well-known name in the movie industry. Not only has the actor been in various blockbuster movies like Avengers and Thor, but he is also ranked as one of the sexiest men to ever grace the screen according to People Magazine.
The hunky actor was named 2014’s sexiest man alive by People magazine, beating the likes of Idris Elba and Chris Pratt.
Chris Hemsworth’s Wife
From his hunky looks to his baby blue eyes, Chris has become quite popular with the ladies, but sorry to burst the bubble, the actor is married and has been married since 2010. Yes! He is married to his longtime sweetheart Elsa Pataky.
Chris met his love through mutual acquaintances at the beginning of 2010 and the two tied the knot by the ending of the year. Elsa Pataky is also an actress. The Spanish star has also dabbled into modeling and film production but is best known as an actress in films like Fast Five, Fast and Furious 6, Furious 7, and Snakes on a Plane.
Chris has been known to gush over Elsa from time to time even though the two have been married for quite a while now. During an interview with TV Week, the actor said, “each week I find something different, more I love about her. It continues to grow which is a great thing.”
He explained that being with her was so easy and that it just made sense for the both of them to tie the knot barely a year after they met.
Chris Hemsworth’s Family
Chris and Elsa wasted no time in starting a family after they tied the knot, the two have three children together. Their first child and daughter India Rose came in 2011, barely a year after they were married. Twin sons Tristan and Sasha followed.
Since becoming a household name, he and his family have moved back to Byron Bay, Australia. He explained that he felt no need to stay in Los Angeles any longer because his successful career offers a certain amount of ease in securing future roles.
Chris Hemsworth’s Daughter
Being that India Rose is Chris’s first child, there is quite an attachment between father and daughter as the little angel practically stole her father’s heart. He has been spotted on many occasions carrying her around as he ran errands or went about his daily business.
When she turned 4, Chris specially baked her a dinosaur cake and yes, the video and cake tweet went viral. Above all, however, Chris genuinely enjoys spending time with his little princess.
Chris Hemsworth Brothers
Known as some of the sexiest brothers in Hollywood, the Hemsworth brothers grew up in Melbourne Australia. The three brothers, all actors, are the only children of their parents Leonie and Craig Hemsworth. Chris is the middle child of the bunch, his elder brother Luke is popularly known for his role in the TV Series Neighbours, and Liam, the youngest is best known for his role in The Hunger Games film series.
Even though Chris and Liam bring in the big bucks and are the most popular actors in the family, a lesser-known fact is that the eldest Luke was the first to start his acting career and thus paving the way for his brothers.
Blockbusters and Being Named the Sexiest Man Alive
Chris Hemsworth is most known for his superhero role as Thor in The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Both Chris and his castmate Tom Hiddleston auditioned for the role of Thor, Chris got the role and Tom was chosen to play Loki.
The movie Thor raked in $449.3 million, and made $181m in the year it was released, 2011, making it one of the highest-grossing superhero movies of all time. This blockbuster thereby catapulted Chris to stardom. The millionaire actor has an estimated net worth of $71million.
Aside from the box office success of his superhero movies, the actor is known for his celebrity status as one of the sexiest men alive. The 2014 publication of People’s magazine named the actor as its sexiest man alive. The actor has however worked really hard to earn this hunky role, as the actor gained 20 pounds of lean muscle for Thor! Apparently, when beating the bad guys, Thor has to be in the tiptop shape most bodybuilders dream of.
About being named the sexiest man alive, Chris said he had a chuckle about it with his wife, saying that it earned him bragging rights at home. “I can just say to her, ‘Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don’t need to do the dishes anymore, I don’t need to change nappies. I’m above it. I’ve made it now,” the actor told People Magazine.
