Chris Hemsworth revealed he would be taking a break to spend time with his family days after revealing he had high risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

The Thor star, 39, told Vanity Fair he decided to take a “time off” after filming a confrontational episode about death in his new Disney+ documentary series Limitless.

“Doing an episode about death and dealing with your own mortality made me go, ‘Oh my God, I’m not ready to go yet,'” he said.

“I want to sit and be in this space with a greater sense of calm and gratitude. And then you start talking about kids and family…’

Chris explained, “It really triggered something in me to want to take some time off. And since we finished the show, I finished the things that I was already committed to.

He said he decided to have a “good chunk of free time” with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children – India, 10, and twins Sasha and Tristan, 8.

It comes after Chris discovered he was genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s disease, which led him to confront his “own mortality” while filming the show.

After taking blood tests for the program, he was told he was “between eight and ten times” more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than the general population, as he is one of two to three percent of people with two copies of the APOE4 gene.
