Thor is putting down his hammer for a moment.
In order to spend more time with his wife Elsa Pataky and their children, India, 10, and the twins Tristan and Sasha, 8, the Spiderhead actor recently said he wants to take a break from acting. This shift in priorities was brought about by Chris’ paradigm-shifting experience while making his National Geographic documentary series Limitless.
In an interview with a magazine on November 17, he stated, “Doing an episode about death and facing your own mortality made me go, ‘Oh God, I’m not ready to go yet.'””
Then you begin to discuss your family and children, saying things like, “Oh my God, they’re getting older and growing up, and I keep piling another movie on top of another movie.” I missed the window, and before you know it, they’re 18 and have moved out.
Chris said that he felt “very triggered” and wanted to take a break after coming to this conclusion.
When, though, will he quicken his pace? Before the end of Limitless, Chris said that he had been following the terms of his contract. But this month,
“I’m going home, and I’m going to have a decent chunk of time off when I finish this trip this week,” he said. And just simplify; spend time with my wife and kids.
Additionally, Chris got more from Limitless than just a new outlook. Additionally, it gave him some important health-related information.
According to the website, Chris underwent several genetic tests, as depicted in the show, and as a result, he discovered that he has a higher than average risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.Chris recalls how it felt to learn that he has an “eight to ten percent” chance of developing Alzheimer’s in the future.
“I wasn’t sure what to think,” he admitted. “Am I meant to be worried?” I thought to myself. Does this concern you?
The gene isn’t “pre-deterministic,” which he eventually discovered; rather, it is a “strong indication” for him. The news ultimately increased the impact of the documentary for him.
The show, which was initially an investigation into ageing and, of course, ought to be entertaining, turned out to be even more pertinent and significant for him than he had anticipated. It served as a great catalyst for me to get started on everything I needed to do, whether it be on the management or the prevention front.
