Chris Hemsworth Enjoys Being A ‘Superhero’ Dad
Fatherhood suits Chris Hemsworth well. The "Snow White and the Huntsman" actor became a first-time dad to daughter, India Rose, with his wife Elsa Pataky. According to "Us Weekly" reports, the 28-year-old Australian actor's first child was born in London. Hemsworth and Pataky wed in 2010 and announced the baby news at the beginning of this year.
It has been a great year for Hemsworth, who has scored a massive hit with the superhero blockbuster film "The Avengers" in which he portrays Thor. His other action film "Snow White & The Huntsman" is also set to become one of the year's biggest releases. With that, there is definitely no rest for this superhero heartthrob father as he juggles his time with career and family life. Hemsworth attended the world premiere of his new movie "Snow White and the Huntsman" with co-stars Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart in London and he was also present at the 2012 MTV Movie awards where the actor had a chat with Us Weekly.
Hemsworth has shared his insight on what he thinks the best part about fatherhood is. "Just her being here," he said, referring to his daughter India Rose. "It's certainly taken all my focus and attention away from work or what have you but that's the main thing on my brain right now. It's wonderful," Hemsworth revealed to Us Weekly.
As for changing dirty diapers, Hemsworth said that, of course, he does. "You don't change clean ones, do you?" he joked. The Australian actor said that he is really very happy in his new role as a father but also admitted that he is a little tired from the responsibilities.
In "The Snow White and the Huntsman" film, Hemsworth portrays a less paternal role as the huntsman who is sent to kill the fairy tale princess by the wicked queen. Directed by Rupert Sanders, the movie which stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen hits theaters in Australia on June 21.
