Chris Hemsworth takes a break from acting, risk of getting Alzheimer

Chris Hemsworth completed the Limitless with Centre challenge he set on Wednesday by taking an icy bath. In a social media video, the 39-year-old actor can be seen diving into a chilly tub of water.

Chris’s social media post

‘If you want to join me, find yourself an ice bath and try to stay in it for three minutes,” he wrote.

He quickly remarked that he needed to go to his “happy place” to get over the terrifying experience before getting into the bath. He made several jokes after that before sharing a story of diving in icy water on a cold day in Norway.

He swam in the chilly northern seas late last month to enhance his health and increase his wellness. He covered the full 250 yards for his brand-new Disney+ streaming show Limitless.

In the recording, Hemsworth referred to the fact that he could last 30 minutes in the water and even asked the person who has been keeping the timer to join him.

‘One of the biggest benefits from an ice bath is mood elevation,’ The Avengers star said. ‘I think it’s because, when you’re in here, you feel like you’re dying and when you get out you feel like you’re alive again.’ 

The friend did jump into the water with thirty seconds left to finish the task with Chris, even though he had previously in the video talked about having a person accompany him.

Why does Chris Hemsworth want a break from acting?

Chris told that he wants to take some time off from acting. ‘Doing an episode on death and facing your mortality made me go, “Oh God, I’m not ready to go yet”.

‘I want to sit and be in this space with a greater sense of stillness and gratitude. And then you start talking about kids and family…’

‘It triggered something in me to want to take some time off. And since we finished the show, I have been completing the things I was already contracted to do.’

Chr is Hemsworth, likely to have Alzheimer

Chris said now he wants to spend all his time with his family. It happened when Chris heard he has a genetic risk for Alzheimer‘s, which pushed him to approach his “own death” while shooting the series.

As he’s one of only two to three percent of individuals with 2 copies of something like the APOE4 gene, blood test results for the study indicated that he is “approximately eight and ten times” more likely to possess Alzheimer’s than the wider public.
