Chris Hemsworth Pays Off Parents’ Debt
Chris Hemsworth has paid back his parents for their years of support and sacrifice with a cash surprise.
The Thor star, along with actor brothers Liam and Luke, grew up in a working class home in Australia with their mom Leonie, an English teacher, and dad Craig, a social services counselor, and he recently decided it was time to give his folks a little financial breathing room.
“He (his father) called my brother Chris back and said, ‘I don’t know how to feel,” The Hunger Games star recalled. “(He said), ‘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…’ 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.”
