Contrary to his fame, Chris comes off as a very down to Earth and humble man who is invested in his movie roles.
Chris Hemsworth recently shared some of his views with Vanity Fair. As an actor who has reached stardom in brief and deliberate leaps, Chris is humble and modest in the best way possible.

The actor started his acting career starring in the long-running Australian soap Home and Away. After three years of teenage training, Chris packed his bags and flew to Hollywood. He had a brief role in the remake of Star Trek as George Kirk. A role he does not treasure.
He talked about how the eight months he had spent were torturous for him and when he had finally made up his mind to return to Australia, he was cast in The Cabin in the Woods. The movie might not have brought him any star claim but it definitely accomplished his star potential in director Joss Whedon’s eyes.
So when Whedon was signed on with Marvel, he picked out Chris from the back over his younger brother Liam to be cast as the Norse God of Thunder, Thor. The rest became history as Chris’ face became known worldwide because of his hammer wielding, caped, long haired Heir of Asgard.
Chris told Vanity Fair that he feels like he has been in a movie. Living in L.A., he says, a person loses touch with reality and he felt that it was damaging to his family whom he shipped off to Australia recently.
Chris has kept himself grounded with movies that weren’t complete successes but have challenged him as an actor. His role in Rush as the spoiled, womanizing Formula One racer Hunt might not be the depiction of the actor in reality but he definitely did it with finesse and ingénue that might have gone wrong if not done properly.
His role as a hacker in Blackhat accomplished him as a great facial actor rather than just being a buff body that people identify him as. As the scope widens, the roles become more challenging. Chris is moving with those roles.
In his latest movie In the Heart of the Sea, where he plays the role of Owen Chase, a sailor stranded at sea after his boat was destroyed by a Moby Dick-style whale, Chris dropped major pounds from his buff physique.
He advised that no one should go on the 500 calories a day diet. He has done it to be true to his role. He is also going to be seen in the upgrade of Ghostbusters alongside Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Both comedic legends have sung praise of Chris’ comedic skill and improvisation that he impressed them with onset.
Chris has a great year coming ahead and many people are still waiting for Chris the role that will be tailor-made for him only and he will rise as the actor he has the potential to be.
