While Chris Hemsworth may be one of Hollywood’s top hunks today, he wasn’t raised in a world of fame. In fact, Hemsworth had a childhood filled with wonderfully average happenstances, only proving how much hard work he put in for his place in the film industry. This is what the star was like before being thrust into the spotlight.

The Hemsworth Brothers’ Beach-Centric Upbringing

Chris Hemsworth grew up in Australia under the guidance of parents passionate about supporting and educating children. He spent his early days occupying himself with surfing, swimming in the ocean, and bickering with his now-famed brothers, Liam and Luke. While his sibling rivalry isn’t far off from that which any set of relatives experiences, he had some wild childhood experiences early on.

Chris’s Epic Aussie Outback Childhood

While Hemsworth’s heart was drawn to the beach, his earliest memories spring from the Australian outback. Spending his childhood with “crocodiles and buffalo,” Hemsworth spent time bouncing around the different scenic routes in Australia before his family finally planted their feet in Victoria. By then, the actor seemed to have developed a zest for adventure, and his goals seemed to constantly be shifting.

Hemsworth teased himself over the fact that his dreams for the future were incredibly inconsistent as a teenager. “My mates would laugh at me…each week I had a different goal,” he explained, sharing that he wanted to be everything from a football star to a fashion designer. Luckily, his older brother, Luke, began to guide him towards the film industry– although his fame wasn’t instant.

A Quick Big Break: Chris’s Thrust Into Hollywood

Despite struggling with some sibling conflict and a lack of job offers, Hemsworth stuck out the lull in his career, and it certainly paid off. All at once, the actor was cast in three, significant films: Cabin in the Woods, Red Dawn, and Thor. Now, the star is one of Marvel’s most prized, handsome heroes, and one of Hollywood’s greatest catches.
