Chris Hemsworth's Taking an Acting Break, and Maybe a Permanent Thor Break

Best known for playing Kirk’s dad in Star Trek’s 2009 reboot, the first Thor movie from 2011 supercharged his career like a bolt of lightning & he’s got a new action franchise, Limitless.

He got to know a “strong” genetic predisposition to develop Alzheimer’s disease as he gets older. 

Both of his parents have the APOE4 gene, which leads to an increased risk of memory-losing disease.

As a result, he’s announced a brief retirement from acting to spend time with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three kids.

“It really triggered something in me to want to take some time off,” said Hemsworth.

Even with this brief retirement, he told about the possibility of coming back to be Thor in the future.

He also said that he’d be fine if that possible, Thor 5 would serve as his last one.
