Chris Hemsworth: Time drags without family

Chris Hemsworth says it feels like a "lifetime" every time he has to leave his family behind.

Chris Hemsworth says it’s “heartbreaking” when his daughter misses him.

The actor is kept busy with exciting movie projects, most recently starring as a computer hacker in Blackhat.

Usually his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children, two-year-old India and 11-month-old twins Tristan and Sasha, are able to come along on shoots. But when they can’t, it’s very hard for the 31-year-old.

“This film was the first time I didn’t take my family with me and those weeks seemed like a lifetime now my daughter is two and a half,” he sighed to British newspaper Metro.

“My boys don’t understand it yet but my daughter now says, ‘Where is he? Where is Papa?’ and that’s heartbreaking. I don’t want to do that very often and make a real effort not to.”

Chris takes his work very seriously and visited a prison in order to speak to real-life hackers. While there he also had contact with other inmates, with the crimes ranging from petty theft to murder. It wasn’t always an easy experience.

“We walked through the cell blocks at one point and I was being heckled quite viciously. It was intimidating,” he admitted.

“But I did have a blond ponytail, pulled back in a bun…”

It’s not just his acting skills the star is admired for; he’s also gained heartthrob status and was voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive last year. However, it’s a title he doesn’t take too seriously, joking it’s “downhill from here” and that he plans to let himself go now.
