Fans Shocked To Learn Why Chris Hemsworth Is Taking A Break From Acting

Australian actor, Chris Hemsworth is taking some time off from acting after finishing the press tour for his new Disney+ docu-series “Limitless.”

Hemsworth, 39, explained to Vanity Fair that after filming the final episode of the “Limitless” series, he decided to take a break from acting to spend time with his family.

What brought about this change? It appears that the final episode of the series centered on mortality and death and something concerned Hemsworth enough that he decided he needs a long break.

Hemsworth explained, “It really triggered something in me to want to take some time off. And since we finished the show, I’ve been completing the things I was already contracted to do.”

“Now when I finish this tour this week, I’m going home, and I’m going to have a good chunk of time off and just simplify. Be with the kids, be with my wife.”

The “Thor” superstar has a daughter India, 10, and 8-year-old twin sons, Tristan and Sasha, with his wife Elsa Pataky, 46.

“Doing an episode on death and facing your own mortality made me go, ‘Oh God, I’m not ready to go yet,'” he continued.  “I want to sit and be in this space with a greater sense of stillness and gratitude.”

Hemsworth went on to say, “And then you start talking about kids and family and going, ‘Oh my God, they’re getting older, they’re growing up, and I keep slapping another movie on top of another movie.’ Before you know it, they’re 18, and they’ve moved out of the house, and I missed the window.”

During the filming of “Limitless”, Hemsworth discovered that he is 8 to 10 times more likely than the average person to develop Alzheimer’s disease.

During the series, Hemsworth met with longevity physician Dr. Peter Attia and he performed a series of genetic tests.

Dr. Attia explained to Hemsworth, “We’ve got every blood test one can get, and you’ve got two copies of APOE4. A set from your mom and a set from your dad.”

Apparently, APOE4 is the gene that has the strongest correlation to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

“The idea that I won’t be able to remember the life I experienced, or my wife, my kids, is probably my biggest fear,” Hemsworth shared in the episode.
