Australian actor Chris Hemsworth is known for his role as Odin’s beloved son in the fictional world of Asgard. But according to his brother Liam Hemsworth, the “Avengers” star embodies Thor’s kindness even in real life.
As reported on Hollywood Life, Chris Hemsworth proved his superhero abilities by paying off his parents’ debt when his blockbuster movies made his name a big hit. This was confirmed by his younger brother, “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth.
Speaking to The Independent, Liam recalled an emotional moment when his brother Chris called their father to look at his bank account. His father was overwhelmed upon learning his son’s act of kindness.
“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.”
The 25-year-old “Hunger Games” star told the site that he hopes to do the same to his family.
“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,” Liam added.
The younger Hemsworth said that his upcoming film entitled “The Dressmaker” reminded him of his grandfather, Keith. He mentioned that his grandfather was a “very hard-working Australian.” Although he didn’t come from a well-off family, his grandfather was everybody’s friend.
The site mentioned that his grandfather’s hard-working personality was reflected in the Hemsworth brothers.
News.com.au wrote that the Hemsworth brothers are currently the ambassadors for the Australian Childhood Foundation. According to the foundation’s website, the organisation aims to make children “safe from the trauma of abuse, violence and neglect.”
“If you want to be a good person who adds to society, you have responsibility. That is something I take very seriously,” Liam Hemsworth told The Independent.
