World-renowned star actor Chris Hemsworth (39, Australia) is taking a break after discovering a high-risk Alzheimer’s gene in his body.

According to American media Vanity Fair on the 18th (Korean time), Hemsworth recently discovered the rare Alzheimer’s gene in a genetic test he received while filming the National Geographic documentary (USA) ‘Limitless’.

According to the media, he had both types of factors inherited from his parents. These cases are very rare, accounting for only 2-3% of the population.

The media said that this situation is very high risk, and the incidence of Alzheimer’s is eight times higher.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Hemsworth said, “I will prepare (for Alzheimer’s) in advance. Maintaining physical and mental health will prevent the onset of the disease for a long time,” he said, expressing his determination to “live life with gratitude and love as much as possible.”

He said, “After finishing this documentary, I will spend a lot of time with my wife and children at home.”

Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth married Elsa Pataky in 2010 and they have a 9-year-old daughter, India Rose, and 7-year-old twin sons, Sasha and Tristan.
