Because of his Alzheimer’s disease, Chris Hemsworth, better known as Thor, is taking a break from acting.
His extensive testing for his upcoming Disney reality series Limitless revealed that he carries two copies of the APOE4 gene, one from each of his parents.
A similar diagnosis has been made for his grandfather.
According to National Institute on Aging Research, APOE4 is the “gene with the biggest risk for Alzheimer’s disease.”.
Since we finished the show, he said, “I’ve been completing the tasks I was already contracted to complete. After this week’s tour, I’m going home and taking some time off to simplify. be with my wife and the kids. “.
Chris is now determined to spend as much time as possible with his wife and kids. He is trying to break his habit of spending more time working than with his family after realising how much he spends working.
He said, “Doing a death episode and facing your own mortality made me go, Oh God, I’m not ready to go yet.”.
“Then you start talking about your family and children, and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, they’re getting older and growing up, and I just keep piling another movie on top of another movie. Before you know it, they’re 18 and have moved out, and I miss everything. “.
In the episode, Hemsworth’s physician tells him that the gene he carries doubles or triples his risk of developing Alzheimer’s. The actor didn’t want to emphasise this or imply that he had a diagnosis. He said I was given a version of the program where there was no discussion.
“No, look, if this inspires people to take better care of themselves and realise that there are steps you can take—great,” I told myself. My concern was that I wouldn’t twist it, overdramatise it, and turn it into an awkward attempt at empathy or something for entertainment. “.
Although he is taking a break from acting, it is not certain that he won’t come back. Currently in development are the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa and Extraction 2.
Hemsworth continued, “It’s not like I’ve been given my resignation. He’s using this downtime to think about what matters most to him. He declared, “You never know when your time is up, and you never know what tomorrow holds.”.
He continued, “The point is to live better right now, whether or not any of this information helps you live longer. “Your present self is significantly impacted by anything you do right now to improve your future self. “.
A long and healthy life is what we wish for this incredible performer!
