Apparently Chris Hemsworth plays a hero on and off the screen. Hemworth’s equally handsome little brother and actor Liam revealed in an interview that Chris paid off all of his parents’ debts.
The Hunger Games star recalled in an interview with Britain’s Independent that his Thor star sibling called their dad one day and told him to take a look at his bank account.
“He [his father] called my brother Chris back and said, ‘I don’t know how to feel. Since I left home I have had debts and I thought I’d be paying them off until I died and have this weight hanging over me, and now to have them completely cleared,’” Liam said.
The 25-year-old actor added that Chris’s act of kindness left his parents “so happy” and has given his parents more time to spend with them.
“They are so happy now and able to spend more time with us, I would love to be able to do something for my parents like that,” he said.
Though Liam won’t be able to pay off his parents’ debt, he is taking his opportunity to give back. His is joining his brother as an ambassador for the Australian Childhood Foundation, which works with children how are dealing with or have dealt with trauma, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“If you want to be a good person who adds to society, you have responsibility,” he said. “That is something I take very seriously.”
Good for you Hemsworth boys!
