The marvel cinematic universe of Avengers officially came to an end with Avengers: Endgame. We’re all reeling from the after effects of it, and it’s certainly popular given the fact that it grossed millions of dollars on the premiere day. We’re surely going to miss our super heroes. In particular, Chris Hemsworth, the hammer – wielding God of Thunder. But you would be surprised to know that Hemsworth has struggled with his mental health. Thor may seem like the poster boy for health and fitness to the most of us but that is far from the truth.
Chris Hemsworth Talks About His Battle with Anxiety
It’s quite hard to imagine that Thor, a beautiful blonde God who’s fearless in the face of danger, would be facing mental health issues such as anxiety. While Hemsworth may seem like an invincible force, he sat down with Men’s Health to discuss his acting career. During the interview, Chris Hemsworth explained how at times he contemplated whether acting was made for him or not. It led to him doubting in his own abilities.
“I became more and more anxious, to the point where I couldn’t harness or use that energy.”
How He Overcame His Struggles
Chris Hemsworth further goes on to explain that he tried his very best to overcome his anxiety. Hemsworth told Men’s Health that,
“when you’re constantly self-analyzing, its ultimately a selfish endeavor…. the key is to look little deeper and analyzing it.”
Luckily for both Hemsworth and us, he’s past those struggling eight months he spent auditioning for Red Dawn. There are times where he has a hard time again but he is powering through.
Mental Health Is Important To Discuss
By speaking so openly about his Mental Health in an industry where toxic masculinity prevails, Hemsworth has shown a way in which other male actors can also talk about their mental struggles.
