Chris Hemsworth Talks About Juggling Career And Family Time In New Interview

These days actor Chris Hemsworth makes it pretty clear that his priorities in his life has definitely changed since the birth of his daughter, India. The hot Hollywood actor opens up to Prestige magazine about how he is trying to juggle his career with his family life and being “over exposed.” Here are a few highlights of what he says:

On juggling work & family: “It’s tough, certainly. When you’re all in one place, it’s like a normal job. The hours can be inconsistent, but at least when you comehome at night, the family’s there. The toughest thing is the press tours and the travel, which fortunately is only a couple of times a year for a couple of weeks at a time. So the time I’m away from them can be minimal. What will become harder is if my wife and I are both working at the same time in different countries — that’s what we’re going to try not to do. But, sometimes there’s an opportunity that arises for both of you which you can’t say no to. At the moment we’re lucky; it’s early days for us anyway.”

Why he doesn’t do Twitter: “I think there’s a danger of being overexposed with that stuff. The mystery of who you are is what keeps people interested in wanting to see you on the screen. Also, it’s easier for them to believe you as that character if they don’t know too much about you. It’s hard not to be overexposed these days with the Internet, and especially when you do a tour for something like The Avengers or Snow White, where you’re contracted to do an incredible amount of press. Besides, I’d rather be hanging out with my family than updating to people I don’t know about what I had for lunch. Also, there are so many fake ones out there, which is pretty frustrating.”

What does he do in his spare time? “At the moment, hang out with my little baby. It’s fascinating watching her; every day there’s something different. Now she’s becoming more and more aware of the world and that’s incredible. Also I surf, train and see movies: regular stuff. My wife and I are pretty outdoorsy and adventurous; we like to keep moving.”
