the actor Chris Hemsworth will be taking a much-needed break from acting to focus on his family, after it was revealed that he has a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer’s disease.
Hemsworth is currently promoting his new Disney+ series no limitsIn a recent episode, he met a doctor who revealed his condition. Hemsworth, 39, said Vanity Fair “His complex contains two copies of the APOE4 gene, one from his mother and the other from his father, which studies have linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease,” the doctor explained.
This means that he is eight to ten times more likely to contract the disease. His grandfather was also diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
“[The experience] “It really sparked something in me of wanting to take time off,” Hemsworth said. “And ever since we finished the show, I’ve been completing things that were already contracted to do.”
He added, “Now when I finish this tour this week, I’m going home and I’m going to have a good bit of time off and I’m just going to lay down.” “Be with the children, and be with my wife.”
He added: Look, if this is an incentive for people to take better care of themselves and also understand that there are steps you can take – then great.
