06 Chris Hemsworth’s ‘self­ish’ solo mis­sion

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - CITY | ENTERTAINMENT - IANS

Ac­tor Chris Hemsworth says he “self­ishly” asked his wife, ac­tor Elsa Pataky, and their chil­dren not to visit him on the sets of his film Bad Times at the El Royale, so that he could fo­cus on work.

The 35-year-old has three chil­dren — daugh­ter In­dia, 6, and twin sons Sasha and Tris­tan — with Pataky. “Nor­mally I come away with my fam­ily,” he says, when asked about bal­anc­ing work and fam­ily life. “We ar­rive in a city. I rush off to work, do my prep. Rush home, kids, fam­ily, my wife. Next morn­ing, up again, try­ing to fit in some train­ing. Rush home, feed the kids,” he adds.

But this pat­tern changed when it came to film­ing the neo-noir mys­tery, di­rected by Drew God­dard.“Elsa ended up hav­ing a job at the same time, so it was fine but I ac­tively chose to have it be a solo mis­sion. It al­lowed me to self­ishly fo­cus just on this char­ac­ter,” he ex­plains.

O Mfilm se­ries, shares that get­ting time off to be alone with his char­ac­ter helped him pre­pare well. “I would wake up and think, ‘I can ac­tu­ally go to work and think about the char­ac­ter’, and then I would come home and think about the char­ac­ter then, too. I just hadn’t been able to go to that place for a while,” the ac­tor adds.
