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.

‘‘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.
