Avengers Star Chris Hemsworth Paid Off His Parents' Debt


Chris Hemsworth and his brothers, Liam and Luke, grew up in a loving, supportive household that was anchored by their loving mother Leonie, an English teacher, and their kind-hearted father Craig Hemsworth, a social-services counsellor. Leonie and Craig have spent over two-decades of their lives caring for abused and neglected children, which explains why Liam and Chris have used their fame for numerous charities and even became ambassadors for the Australian Childhood Foundation.

The Hemsworth' boys know they owe a lot to their parents and that is why it is so nice to hear that when Chris found success in Hollywood he made sure to use his newfound wealth to pay off his parents' debt. In a recent interview, Liam shared the moment in which Chris phoned their father and told him to look at his bank account.

"He [his 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 recalled to The Independent. "They are so happy now and able to spend more time with us, I would love to be able to do something for my parents like that."

Thor: Ragnarok will star Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk). It'll be directed by What We Do In The Shadows' Taika Waititi, based on a script by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle. Filming will take place in Australia and begin in June of 2016.
