Chris Hemsworth told Vanity Fair that he is planning to take a good chunk of time off work once his press tour for the Disney+ series “Limitless” wraps. In the fifth episode of the series, Hemsworth meets with a doctor and it’s revealed that the “Thor” actor has a genetic predisposition for Alzheimer’s disease. As Vanity Fair reports: “His makeup includes two copies of the gene APOE4, one from his mother, the other from his father, which studies have linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.”

In Short

  • Chris Hemsworth is a part of Limitless.
  • He took some genetic tests where it was revealed that he has two copies of gene APOE4 in his genes which are linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • He has decided to take a break from acting to spend sometime with the family.

The episode dropped on Disney+ Hotstar on November 16 and showed Chris talking about his fears. “Our memories are supposed to last forever. They shape us, and make us who we are, the idea that I won’t be able to remember a lot of experience or my wife, or my kids is probably my biggest fear.”

Speaking to Vanity Fair about it, he said in a recent interview, “The show, which initially was an exploration of longevity and, of course, should be fun, became even more relevant and important for me, even more poignant than I ever thought it would be.”

Chris added, “It was a really good catalyst to dive into everything I needed to be doing in either the prevention front or the management front or however you want to classify it. It’s not a pre-deterministic gene, but it is a strong indication. Ten years ago, I think it was more thought of as determinant.”
