Since debuting as Thor in 2011, Chris has starred in seven Marvel movies. His latest, Thor: Love and Thunder, is due out in 2022.

Chris has already confessed to Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he had stolen some Thor’s hammers over the past decade for personal use.

He said in 2018 that he had at least five hammers hidden at home.

Chris and his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, have been married since 2010 and share three children, daughter India, nine, and twins Tristan and Sasha, six.

The family resides in Byron Bay, a city on the east coast of Australia.
