RIS­ING star CHRIS Hemsworth has con­fessed to hav­ing fears about his A-list Hol­ly­wood ca­reer. The Rush star has shared his per­sonal pho­bias in De­tails mag­a­zine, where he was open about what he is scared of as far as his ca­reer is con­cerned.

Fears that work could dry up also forced the 30-year-old ac­tor to work flat out over the last few years, but he says now’s the right time to take a break with his wife Elsa and their daugh­ter In­dia Rose. Chris Hemsworth stars in

‘‘There’s a brief pay­out, and then the bar shifts again. I think that’s hu­man na­ture. It keeps you mov­ing for­ward, but it needs to be tem­pered a bit too.

‘‘I’ve been work­ing solidly for a cou­ple of years now, to the point where I have to slow down and spend some time with my fam­ily,’’ he says.

Rush is in cine­mas.
