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.
In a new interview with the Irish Independent, Hemsworth details his older brother’s kind gesture, and the moment he told their dad to check his bank account. “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.”
