Washington [US], November 20 (ANI): Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth, who is finishing the press tour for his new docu-series 'Limitless', has said that he will be taking "time off" from acting.
According to Fox News, while talking to Vanity Fair he said that after filming the final episode of his series that he'll be taking a break from acting to spend time with his family which includes wife Elsa Pataky along with daughter India and twin sons Tristan and Sasha.
He said, "Doing an episode on death and facing your own mortality made me go, 'Oh God, I'm not ready to go yet.' I want to sit and be in this space with a greater sense of stillness and gratitude."
"It really triggered something in me to want to take some time off. And since we finished the show, I've been completing the things I was already contracted to do. Now when I finish this tour this week, I'm going home, and I'm going to have a good chunk of time off and just simplify. Be with the kids, be with my wife," he continued.
Recently, while filming 'Limitless', Hemsworth learned that he is 8 to 10 times more likely than the average individual to develop Alzheimer's disease.
He met with longevity physician Dr Peter Attia in the fifth episode and underwent a series of genetic tests.
"We've got every blood test one can get. And you've got two copies of APOE4. A set from your mom and a set from your dad," Attia told Hemsworth.
As per Fox News, APOE4 is the gene that has the strongest correlation to the development of Alzheimer's disease; however, not much is known about it.
Hemsworth revealed during the episode that his grandfather suffers from the disease. "He either doesn't remember who we are, you know, his grandkids, but also even his own children, for years. It's heartbreaking," reported Fox News. (ANI)
