Chris Hemsworth paid off parents' debts

Chris Hemsworth paid off his parents' debts when he became a successful actor.

The 32-year-old star made the generous gesture before calling his father and telling him to check his bank account, Chris' younger brother Liam, 25, revealed.

He told The Independent newspaper: "[My father] called my brother Chris back and said, 'I don't know how to feel. Since I left home, I have had debts and I thought I'd be paying them off until I died and have this weight hanging over me, and now to have them completely cleared.'

"They are so happy now and able to spend more time with us. I would love to be able to do something for my parents like that."

Liam also revealed that he and Chris hope to make a movie with their older brother Luke, 34.

He said: "We have talked about it for a long time. I don't know what the movie will be, but possibly we will only get one chance to do it. We are waiting for the perfect thing.

"When I was 17, I did one episode of a show with my eldest brother Luke. It was a kids' fantasy TV series, and it was the hardest day on set I've ever had in my life, because if he wasn't on camera, he would be doing something that was just trying to ruin me while I was on camera. And so I think it would be so difficult to make a film with my brother."
