With this in mind, Chris Hemsworth is the archetypal BOSS man for a new generation. His two-decade-long acting career, capped with ten years of Hollywood superstardom, ensures he ticks the box of professional success. Yet the Australian actor has never let himself be defined by his work alone.
While by day he might be Thor, Norse god of thunder, at home Hemsworth is a hands-on dad raising three children together with his wife, Elsa Pataky. He’s also an entrepreneur, with his own fitness and lifestyle app, and the face of our iconic men’s fragrance BOSS Bottled since 2017. A passionate surfer, he enjoys days spent at the beach, or in the great outdoors with his family.
Yet nature offers its own sense of perspective. In 2020, Hemsworth’s home in Byron Bay was close to the scene of that year’s dramatic bushfires – and just a few months later, his former home in Los Angeles was also surrounded by wildfire. The actor spent part of his childhood in the vast Australian Outback, and the fight to protect the environment has been important to him for years. It joins his work with children’s organisations in an impressive list of work and causes he’s publicly supported.
