Chris Hemsworth paid off his parents’ debt as a surprise

Chris Hemsworth paid off his parents' debt as a surprise

Chris Hemsworth is a really, really great son. According to his brother Liam, Chris paid off their parents’ debt. Not only did he do the grand gesture, but he did so without telling them, making it a wonderful surprise!

Huffington Post reports:

Liam explained that Chris called their dad to tell him to look at his bank account:

“He [his father] called my brother Chris back and said: ‘I don’t know how to feel. Since I left home I have had debts and I thought I’d be paying them off until I died and have this weight hanging over me, and now to have them completely cleared.’ They are so happy now and able to spend more time with us, I would love to be able to do something for my parents like that.”

And Liam’s not so bad himself. The “Hunger Games” star is an ambassador for the Australian Childhood Foundation, along with his big bro. Their parents worked with the organization to support children going through trauma, and now Liam and Chris are using their celebrity status to give the campaign an extra boost of star power.

“If you want to be a good person who adds to society, you have responsibility. That is something I take very seriously,” Liam explained.

What a great thing to do for his parents. Must be nice!

Chris Hemsworth covers ‘Vanity Fair’; Says he lost touch with reality in Los Angeles

Chris Hemsworth covers 'Vanity Fair'; Says he lost touch with reality in Los Angeles

Chris Hemsworth is featured on the Holiday 2015/2016 cover of Vanity Fair. Inside of this issue, he talks about auditioning for Thor, Los Angeles and the paparazzi.

On the topic of Thor, he said, “I had an audition with Ken [Branagh] that didn’t go very well. I remember walking out thinking, ‘Oh well, there goes that opportunity.’ Then one day Joss Whedon and Drew were reading the trades, and on the front was the final four for Thor. And they pointed to Liam and said, ‘Hey, is that your brother?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ And they said, ‘Why the hell aren’t you in the mix?’ And I said, ‘I didn’t get a callback.’ And they were like, ‘This is crazy.’ And I was like, ‘If one of us gets it, that’s cool.’ And they were like, ‘No way. That should be you.’ And when casting opened back up, Joss called Ken and said, ‘Give Chris another shot.'”

He went on to say, “When something costs $150 million and it doesn’t work, it’s your face, it’s your fault. And the character has fans. Are they still a fan or did you just make them never want to read the comic again?”

On the subject of Los Angeles, he said, “It will set you up to turn you into a complete narcissist. You just kind of lose touch with reality a bit here. You drive down the street and you’re constantly reminded of everything you’re either involved in or not involved in. It’s exhausting.”

When speaking of complaining about the paparazzi, he said, “But I’m not complaining. What was it that Jennifer Lawrence said? ‘I know everyone says you’re not supposed to complain about the paparazzi. Well, I don’t give a s**t. I’m f***ing complaining!’ But she can get away with that.”

Chris Hemsworth’s Kids Don’t Travel Well

Chris Hemsworth Takes a Walk with the Family

Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky recently took a family vacay with their three kids, but thea ctor said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that some of the time together were…not as ideal as you’d think.

“We actually flew from Australia to London the other day, and door-to-door it’s about a 30-hour trip,” the Australian hunk, 31, explained. “It was kind of like the trip from hell.”

Hemsworth’s three kids, India, Tristan and Sasha all are on board with each other…but not necessarily their parents.

“They were all sick and literally took turns to scream,” the Thor star continued to host Ellen DeGeneres of his brood. “One would kinda do it and then look over and be like, ‘I’m done, you want a turn?’ ‘Yep, Wahhhh!’ The whole cabin, yeah, wanted to kick us off… I don’t know what people expect though — you’re gonna put them in the suitcase or something?”

But when she’s not screaming in tandem, Hemsworth’s daughter India is actually an impressive child. Approaching her 3rd birthday, the little girl was raised bilingual by her Madrid-born mother and English-speaking father.

“My daughter is bilingual,” Liam Hemsworth‘s brother began. “Amazing, like, you walk in the room and if someone’s not authentically Spanish, she just won’t even have it. She’s like, ‘Nah,’ and goes back to English. Even if my mom or someone even attempts to speak in Spanish, she’s like, ‘That’s horrible. You’re butchering the language. Get out.'”

Good- so she can scream in English AND Spanish.  You sure that’s a good idea, Chris?
