Thor star Chris Hemsworth opens up in the December issue of Elle about family life with wife Elsa Pataky and their three kids – daughter India, 3, and 1-year-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha – and his upcoming film.
On his family: “I can say that [my family] has certainly kept my feet planted firmly on the ground – I’ve been able to bypass a whole lot of garbage, traps that I could have fallen into. I had a taste of it when I was younger and on a TV show in Australia, and it wasn’t of great interest to me even then.”
On knowing Elsa was ‘the one’: “There was no light bulb moment. From the first time we met, we just made sense. She’s fun. She’s outgoing, and she has a sense of humor and a passionate attitude toward life, which is nice to try to keep up with.”
On his upcoming film The Huntsman, the prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman: “I wanted there to be more humor in it, and a sense of adventure; we didn’t want it to be too bogged down in being serious or self-important. It’s a love story, essentially, between the Huntsman and his wife, who’s played by Jessica Chastain, but it’s also a road-trip movie. They team up and take off, them and a couple of dwarves, on a quest.”
