Chris Hemsworth leaves LA for Byron Bay


Chris Hemsworth

Movie star Chris Hemsworth - famous for his performance as Thor - has moved back home to Australia so his children can have a ‘normal existence'.

The Australian actor and his Spanish wife, also a Hollywood star, Elsa Pataky recently bought a property near Byron Bay on the NSW north coast.
'We travelled so much anyway with work that our base didn't necessarily need to be in Hollywood so much anymore and it's just sort of chaotic with the paparazzi,' said Hemsworth. Accordingly, it was the “best decision” they ever made for their three children.
'We can walk straight down (to) the beach, we can have a normal existence and the kids have a hell of a lot more fun there than they did back in the States,' said Hemsworth.
Hemsworth's career is currently on the rising. He recently starred in Ron Howard's new film In The Heart Of The Sea, a true maritime story that inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick.
The 32-year-old actor confessed he has lost track of the number of scripts he is sent, but said he probably reads five or six a week. “You go through periods, certain seasons, when there's just a mad rush of films to get financed and set up,'” he said.
“A large percentage of what I get sent would be superhero-based action films but the ones you really want to do, in order to do something different, are the ones you've usually got to fight for and are a little more difficult to get made.”
Although he usually has the pick of the scripts, Hemsworth is humble enough to say a couple of his contemporaries would eclipse him. 'Leo certainly is probably top of the food chain along with Brad Pitt and then you've got Tom Hardy and (Michael) Fassbender,' said Hemsworth.
Hemsworth bought a $7 million Byron Bay home. The Australian-turned-Hollywood actor has spent no less than $7 million on a luxurious Balinese-style, seaside property near popular holiday spot Byron Bay. “Kooeloah” on Seven Mile Beach Rd in Broken Head spreads over 4.2ha and features a multi-level main house and multiple, separate villas.
The property has a total of 8 bedrooms and 11 barthrooms as well as a lap pool and a lagoon. The luxurious beach-side buy has taken place less than a year after Hemsworth and his wife snapped up their Malibu home for US$4.8 million.
The house is no doubt big enough for the Hemsworth and their three children, two of which are twin boys.
The Hemsworth haven't wasted any opportunity to enjoy what Byron Bay has to offer. They were seen on all loved-up at the 27th annual Byron Bay Blues Fest, on the New South Wales northern coast. They posted a photo to Instagram ahead of the Cold War Kids performance at the four-day music event. The Spanish actor captioned the post: ‘Byron/Enjoying' and added a number of hashtags to the snap: “blues fest en Byron”, “cold ward kids”, “music”, “love”, “partners night” and “yayyyy”.

Next film we're eagerly waiting for is Thor: Ragnarok release date: November 3, 2017 (USA).
