Have you ever imagined what the people around you will look like when they grow old? People do not usually do that because we never want our loved ones to grow old. But you will be surprised to know that Chris Hemsworth has taken the challenge and experienced something new in his project with National Geographic.
The Australian actor appeared in a show last year that unveiled many unknown truths about the human body. The 39-year-old actor appeared in a show as the subject, and one of the segments also featured his wife Elsa Pataky. But what happened in the show that brought the actor to tears and will leave you in tears as well?
Why did Chris Hemsworth go “Limitless”?
Last year was huge for Hemsworth as his ambitious Taika Waititi-directed project Thor: Love and Thunder were released. However, the film did not receive the massive amount of love it was expecting. Nevertheless, worry you not since there is something else Hemsworth stars in that did catch the public eye.

In 2022, the Thor star worked on a project with National Geographic which was named Limitless with Chirs Hemsworth. The show was undoubtedly as unique and “limitless” as its name. It reportedly reached our screens in November of last year. It challenges the limits of what we humans know about the potential that lies within the human body and its ability to age.

According to Your Tango, the ultimate goal of this docuseries was to “unlock our body’s superpowers.” The most emotional segment was when Hemsworth discovered that in near future he is prone to his biggest fear which is a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer’s disease. The irony is, Thor played by the actor himself is more than 1500 years old and he remembers everything just fine.
Chris Hemsworth will be taking a break from acting after learning he has a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer’s.
His makeup includes two copies of the gene APOE4, which studies have linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

However, his wife and the team came up with a plan where she dressed and got her makeup as an old version of herself. She later surprised Hemsworth with it, which made the actor cry. The most beautiful reaction he came up with was, “Still beautiful”.
The actor has decided to take a break from acting after being diagnosed with a possibility of disease. He has decided to spend more time with his family and has no plans of coming back whatsoever. Let’s hope the gene causing Alzehimer does not get dominant and we get to see Hemsworth as Thor for 1500-plus years.
What do you think of his wife’s overwhelming yet hilarious actions? Let us know in the comments below.
