Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky were seen boarding a private jet together at Sydney Airport on Friday. The couple arrived on the tarmac in a black SUV, before climbing up the steps onto their chartered plane.
The 38-year-old Thor star stepped out in a pair of black jeans, which he paired with a black T-shirt. He also donned a short-sleeve black button-up shirt, which he wore open, and rounded out his ensemble with white sneakers and a beige baseball cap.
Chris carried a heavy-looking black backpack, and was seen chatting with airport staff as he stepped onto the plane. Meanwhile, Elsa, 45, stepped out in a pair of pale blue jeans, which she teamed with a pink, black and white patterned jacket.
The Tidelands actress also donned a pair of black and white sneakers, while her long blonde hair sat in loose waves around her shoulders. Chris and Elsa have been married for 12 years, and are parents to daughter India, 10, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, eight.
In an interview with GQ Australia in October 2018, Chris – who’s net worth is estimated to be USD$130million admitted he felt ‘gross’ about his wealth. ‘I remember saving up for a surfboard when I was younger.
The surfboard was 600 bucks and I saved up for a whole year with Dad’s help,’ he recounted. ‘I didn’t even want to surf on it for fear of damaging it. It taught me so many lessons about appreciation and working hard for something.’
Chris added that he didn’t want his children to be spoilt just because he now has money, and said he wanted to teach them the importance of hard work. ‘When I think about my kids, I don’t want them to miss that joy. Elsa and I talk a lot about how we instill that same appreciation and respect for things,’ he continued.
‘I don’t want them to feel like they’re privileged in any way. The fact that we have money and their parents are famous, that somehow they’re special, that scares me because we grew up with no money.’
Meanwhile, in an interview with Variety in June 2019, Chris admitted he’d been ‘running out of money’ before landing the lead role in the Thor franchise. He said he’d put extra pressure on himself while trying to crack Hollywood because he felt obliged to support his family back in Australia.
‘I wanted to pay off house, initially. That was my sort of thing,’ he said of his early years in the film industry. ‘I almost put too much pressure on myself. If I hadn’t taken it upon myself to take care of my family, I might have been more relaxed.’
