Chris Hemsworth’s kids think their dad’s job is kind of boring

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky

Chris Hemsworth’s three kids are mostly unimpressed by their movie star dad’s body of work, and it’s kind of heartening to realise that even big celebs are fodder for their kids’ eye-rolls.

No big deal

Chris just did an interview with ETonline, sharing a more detailed glimpse into family life – for our entertainment. How nice of him!

If you’re playing at home, you will know that the Thor star is married to The Fast and the Furious alumna, Elsa Pataky, and the couple have three kiddos together – a 5-year-old named India and 3-year-old twin boys, Sasha and Tristan.

Chris revealed his kids totally have a handle on what he does for work, but only one of his kids shows the slightest bit of interest.

“I come home from work and one of my boys in particular is like, ‘Did you fight the monsters, Papa? Did you hear the monsters?’ He knows Thor.” Chris explained.

The other two, they’re just not impressed!”

“They’re like, ‘Yeah, my dad’s Thor, whatever!'” Chris revealed.

“At least one of them likes me. One out of three’s pretty good,” he laughed.

 Anyone who has tried to explain the value of their work to their kiddos can probably relate.

“My wife’s kept me healthy”

Chris credited wife Elsa with keeping him in a positive mindset as he’s become more successful – and become the focus of more media and public scrutiny.

“We all need to be tempered and kind of reeled in occasionally by our significant others. My wife’s kept me very healthy over the years,” he told ETonline.

“She’s great at just kind of being incredibly optimistic that it’ll work out. I’m not pessimistic, but I’m certainly cautious at times or kind of concerned, ‘Oh, what if this happens, or this, or this?’ And she’s like, ‘It’s fine. You’re on a good thing,'” he revealed.

The actor-dad says when he’s under pressure, his wife is quick to remind him to enjoy the ride.

“She makes me enjoy it, you know. She makes me kind of just go, ‘You’ve worked your a** off. Now have fun. Enjoy it!'” Chris said.

Wise words indeed.
