The Avengers star made a startling discovery of being predisposed to illness, but he explains that it is not the reason for his break.

When you look at Chris Hemsworth, you see a picturesque view of health. The Thor actor has become a physical fitness guru as the action star regularly posts training videos, gives advice on workouts and even released a fitness app called Centr. Hemsworth would even star in a show for Disney+ that explores the boundaries that people push to access the full potential of human physicality. This show is the National Geographic series Limitless. It was also in an episode of this show that Hemsworth discovered that his bloodwork displayed the APOE4 gene, which is linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s syndrome.

Around the time of this discovery, Hemsworth also announced that he would be taking a break from acting to spend time with his family, and the Extraction 2 star now clarifies that his comments were “sort of blown out of proportion” as many took it in a more tragic context. According to The Hollywood Reporter, his break is not specifically a result of the gene discovery. “I wanted to take off because I’ve been working for 10 years, and I’ve got three kids that I want to spend more time with,” Hemsworth told Entertainment Tonight.

Although, the discovery would put things in perspective for him. Hemsworth cites that the show made him “realize how life is just flying by, and I wanted to be still for long periods and more often.” He expounds, “The information about the predisposition…allowed me to make all the changes — whether it be nutrition, my training, my mental fitness. Which is the point of the series. The whole point for me was to give people access to tools, knowledge, information on how to live a better, longer, healthier life.”

Hemsworth’s Avengers co-star Tom Holland has also declared taking a break after he invested so much into his new show, The Crowded Room, which he claims was a challenge. Hemsworth insists that there are still plenty of projects that he is planning for the future. He is just taking into account how the projects would affect his health and assess what would be best for him. “I’ve been running from project to project for a long time, just to avoid being unemployed or that fear that it’s the last job you’ll get, you know? I wanna be more curated about the choices I make, things I immerse myself in or I’m involved in. I want to have greater value and work with great people.”
