‘Thor’ star Chris Hemsworth is just as heroic in the real world as he is in movies, paying off his parents’ debts as soon as he became a big time star in Hollywood, his brother Liam Hemsworth revealed. Aw!
What a guy! Chris Hemsworth, 32, proved he is a real-life superhero by paying off his parents’ debts as soon as he made his fortune, his brother Liam Hemsworth, 25, said in a recent interview. Raise your hand if you want a guy like Chris in your life!
Since he landed in the US, the hunky Chris has starred in a string of blockbuster movies, including The Avengers, Snow White and the Huntsman and Rush, to name only a handful of his big hits. But that doesn’t mean he forgot where he came from, and more importantly, his folks.
Liam told The Independent: “[My 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.'”
Liam also said that he hopes to one day act just like his older brother. “They are so happy now and able to spend more time with us,” he continued. “I would love to be able to do something for my parents like that.”
What a remarkable gesture, and exactly the way you should treat your folks when you’re earning A-lister money! He reportedly has a net worth of $60 million! We salute you, Chris!
In all fairness to Liam, he’s the youngest in the family, and is doing pretty well in his own right. Liam’s latest movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 has soared to the top of every box office in the world, earning a mammoth $300 million worldwide since its release on Nov. 20.
