With a fortune of $130 million, Chris Hemsworth is a multi-talented Australian actor and model. Chris Hemsworth has established himself as one of Hollywood’s top leading men thanks to his role as “Thor” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As an actor, he has demonstrated his versatility and variety by taking on projects that push him outside the boundaries of his superhero character.
As a Child
‘Chris Hemsworth‘ was born in Melbourne to an Australian mother and an English father on August 11th, 1983. In addition to Chris’s two older brothers, who are actors, he has a younger sibling. Chris Hemsworth was raised on cattle stations in the Australian Outback, where buffalo and crocodiles surrounded him. After that, his family returned to Melbourne, where he finished his secondary education. He and his family then relocated to the Northern Territory and Phillip Island.
Initiation of Professional Career
As a child actor, Chris Hemsworth appeared in numerous Australian television shows. “Marshall Law” was one of the shows he appeared in, along with “The Saddle Club” and “Guinevere Jones.” When he auditioned for a role on “Home and Away,” a popular Australian soap drama, Chris Hemsworth took a huge step forward. In the end, he was cast in 171 episodes as a recurrent character. In 2007, he voluntarily departed the show because he wanted to take on new challenges.
Even though “Home and Away” helped Hemsworth gain a reputation and allowed him to hone his acting skills, breaking into Hollywood was a whole new experience for him. Hemsworth had to learn a lot about the Australian television industry from scratch because of the lack of familiarity between the American film industry and the Australian television sector.
Matt Damon had previously turned down the role of James Kirk’s father, George Kirk, in 2009’s “Star Trek” — a job he had previously turned down. Hemsworth’s brief appearance in the film piqued the interest of many moviegoers, even though he appeared for only five minutes. Acting in “A Perfect Getaway” that year followed his early triumph. “Ca$h” cast him in a new role in 2010. Everyone predicted that he’d soon become an A-lister in Hollywood at this time.
They had it right all along. When he first played Thor in 2011, Hemsworth had his most significant role to date. With his first appearance in “The Avengers,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Avengers: Endgame,” Chris Hemsworth shot to Hollywood stardom.
Outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hemsworth has also had a lot of success. This is a list of the films that have received critical acclaim for Hemsworth. Red Dawn, Blackhat, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Huntsman: Winter War, Ghostbusters, and Men in Black: International are just a few of the other films in which Hemsworth has acted.
Hemsworth will appear in two additional films, “Extraction” and “Thor: Love and Thunder,” shortly.
Chris Hemsworth started dating Elsa Pataky in 2010. This was the year they tied the knot. They went on to have three children and moved to Australia from Los Angeles.
Chris Hemsworth is one of the highest-paid actors in the industry. Chris Hemsworth’s roles in “Rush” and “Thor” brought in a combined $58 million for him in 2013. Chris made $30 million between June 2016 and June 2017 through his different businesses. He made $65 million between June 2017 and June 2018. Chris made $75 million between June 2018 and June 2019, putting him 24th on Forbes’ list of the highest-paid celebrities.
Investing in Property
Chris spent $4.8 million on a Malibu property near Point Dume in 2013. Three years later, Chris sold this house for $7 million, which was $500,000 more than he had asked for. Paul Hogan, another well-known Australian athlete, sold the property.
As previously mentioned, Chris spent $15 million building a massive estate in the coastal town of Byron Bay, New South Wales, back in Australia. This property is now valued at around $30 million. A 160-foot rooftop infinity pool is part of this 4-acre property. Bowling lanes can be found elsewhere in the house. They reportedly spent $500,000 just on the landscaping.
As recently as November 2021, Chris is said to have purchased 1,300 acres of land in northeast Tasmania for $15 million. There are two miles of ocean frontage on this property:
Worth After Deducting Debt
The role of ‘Marvel Comics’ superhero Thor made Chris Hemsworth an international star when he starred in the Hollywood blockbuster “Thor,” which made him famous around the world.
In 2011, he got his big break with the critically acclaimed blockbuster ‘Thor.’ He resumed his role as Thor, the crown prince of Asgard, in the sequel to “Thor: The Dark World,” which was released in 2015.
Chris Hemsworth’s net worth is over $130 million as of 2022.
