There's no argument that the isolation that we're all going through is unprecedented. For some it may be working from home and for others it may be not working at all. Any leisure activities that we were involved in that included leaving the house are basically out and we're finding new ways to entertain ourselves. However, being stuck at home has a bit of a silver lining for Chris Hemsworth, because home isn't a place he's been able to spent a lot of time in recent years.
Between being the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Thor, and the other major Hollywood roles Chris Hemsworth has played over the years, the actor has been in high demand, and as such, he's been making one movie after another, with little down time in between. When he's not making movies, he's promoting those movies. While the actor tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that he's grateful for the opportunities he's had, including the travel that's involved, being forced to stop and actually spend time with his wife Elsa Pataky and family is not a bad thing. According to Hemsworth...
You don't have to be a Hollywood A-lister to understand the idea that it's really easy to get into habits with work, and Chris Hemsworth has been taking advantage of his celebrity to make a lot of movies. Those movies have meant good money for him, which is good for his family, but in the long run he hasn't seen them as often as he otherwise might. Odds are, if this whole virus thing hadn't happened, he'd be off someplace making another movie, but since he's not, he gets to spend time with the family and enjoy it.
If nothing else, it means Chris Hemsworth gets to talk about anything that isn't making movies. The actor told The Daily Telegraph that when you're as deeply into the industry as he was, everything was about work, and so now he gets to spend time with people who don't care so much about that, which has been a welcome break.
Chris Hemsworth probably isn't the only one who is enjoying being home, at least a little and in fact, Chris Evans recently said something similar. With so many people stuck on a forced vacation, sometimes the best you can do is look on the positive side of it.
