Actor Chris Hemsworth is taking a much needed break from Hollywood.
Fresh from 12 months of back-to-back filming, Hemsworth told The Daily Telegraph that he wanted to spend more time with his family.
“This year I probably won’t shoot anything,” he said. “I just want to be at home now with my kids.”
Hemsworth, 35 has three children with his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky: seven-year-old daughter India Rose and five-year-old twins Sasha and Tristan.
“They are still young and they are aware when I leave more than before,” he said.
Hemsworth had a starring role in Avengers: Endgame, the final movie in the Avengers franchise, which shattered box office records when it was released last month.
He has three further films due for release this year: Men in Black: International, a spin-off of the 90s/00s Will Smith vehicles also starring fellow Avengers alum Tessa Thompson; science fiction film Dhaka, on which Hemsworth is also a producer; and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, the latest movie in Kevin Smith‘s View Askewniverse.
Despite his decision to take a step back, the Thor star is still expected to hit the promo rounds for his upcoming movies, including Down Under Cover.
The film, which focuses on male strippers, sees Chris once again shedding his clothes to show off his impressive physique. While the majority of the actor’s fans will be thrilled to see him getting naked again, one person who’s not so keen is Elsa.
“She’s just sick of it. She’s like, ‘Just put your clothes on,'” Chris said of his spouse’s reaction to his shirtless scenes during an interview on today’s the Kyle And Jackie O Show.
“It’s not nearly as exciting for her. Or at all.”
