CHRIS HEMSWORTH is one of the most popular and sought-after actors in Hollywood.
Last year, Hemsworth reprised his role as Thor in Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” which made history as the biggest box office opening of all time with a $630 million worldwide opening weekend. He was introduced as Thor in the 2011 eponymous film directed by Kenneth Branagh and has since starred in six Marvel and Global Avengers franchise films which accumulated over 3 billion dollars worldwide. In April this year, Hemsworth starred in “Avengers: Endgame”, which set records in pre-ticket sales selling 5x the number of tickets sold for Infinity War and broke a box office record previously held by James Cameron’s “Titanic”, raking in over 2 billion globally.
Hemsworth was most recently seen in Sony’s “Men in Black: International” alongside Tessa Thompson. He will next be seen in the Netflix action-adventure feature, “Dhaka” with director Sam Hargrave which is set to release late 2019.
Adding to his list of accomplishments, in February 2019 Hemsworth launched CENTR, a personalized digital health and fitness program. The app brings the best hand-picked team of internationally renowned experts, including elite trainers, celebrity chefs, meditation teachers and well-being experts to help one achieve their ultimate fitness goals.
Hemsworth’s multifaceted career includes a starring role alongside Michael Shannon and Michael Peña in “12 Strong,” produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, which tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; and in Drew Goddard’s “Bad Times at the El Royale”, with Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson.
Born and raised in Australia, where he began his acting career, Hemsworth made his U.S. feature film debut in J.J. Abrams’ blockbuster “Star Trek,” playing the pivotal role of George Kirk. Additional credits include lead roles in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” opposite Charlize Theron and the prequel, “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” which included Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt. Hemsworth proved his comedic side in Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters,” alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones and in “Vacation,” with Ed Helms, Christina Applegate and Leslie Mann. He starred in Ron Howard’s Warner Brother’s drama, “In The Heart Of The Sea,” and collaborated with him again on the true-life drama “Rush,” portraying famed Formula One driver James Hunt.
An active philanthropist, Hemsworth supports the Australian Childhood Foundation.
