The actor shares how he’s transitioning into his 30s, after his 20s ended with his house burning down, surgery for a kidney stone, and the tabloids descending on his personal life. But with a new streaming series on Quibi – Most Dangerous Game – and training plan, the Aussie is feeling stronger than ever.
On the lessons from his 20s that he’s excited to bring into his 30s:
“Appreciating the little things. It’s something I always try to remind myself to do, especially in times that maybe things aren’t going the way I planned or the way I wanted things to go. Appreciating what I do have and searching for things that make me happy and things that make me a better person…”
On what he’s found during that search:
“Honestly, the past six months…I’d say exercise and fitness is a big thing for me to just feel balanced and levelheaded. I went into a job [Most Dangerous Game] at the end of last year that was extremely physical. I spent most of the project running and getting beaten up. It was just brutal. I leaned out a lot. Running is so jarring. Your knees, your ankles, your lower back. After that I teamed up with Jason Walsh, who owns Rise Nation in West Hollywood. We do high-intensity stuff, a mix of calisthenics, sled pulls, sled pushes, and lots and lots of free weights.”
On looking up to older brother Chris Hemsworth:
“I really look up to my brother Chris. I’ve worked with a lot of people that have been in really great positions in the past 11 years, and Chris has a stronger work ethic than most. He’s so focused. I’m thankful that I have him and am able to use his resources and his knowledge. I call him all the time
about scripts and get his opinion. ‘Should I do this? Should I do that?’ We’re looking to do a film this year together, which is like a big action-comedy thing.” Image courtesy of The Riker Brothers for Men’s Health. (source)
