And although Chris was catapulted into stardom thanks to the Norse god, he confessed that during the first years of his career, he was very anxious about auditioning for new projects.

Explaining that “some of that was detrimental,” but it forced him to work harder, making insightful research and constantly rehearsing to “have a strong opinion on the script.”

However he now admits that he is “too comfortable” after playing the same character, and wants to dig deeper, exploring different movie genres and maybe even landing unexpected roles.

“I like that reminder: you could slip and fall here, get it together. I think it’s a great motivation, feeling that uncertainty, having that little bit of fear knocking at the door,” he shared.

Chris also says that his family is his number one priority when it comes to deciding to be involved in new projects, so he is more interested in working in Australia, close to his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children, 8-year-old India, and 7-year-old twins Sasha and Tristan.
