Chris Hemsworth didn’t waste any time lazing around after landing in Sydney on Saturday — the Snow White and the Huntsman hottie headed to Maroubra Beach for a surf! He was wiped out by the big waves, which apparently broke his friend’s surfboard, but the actor managed to keep a handsome smile on his face most times. And yesterday the hunk stripped shirtless for a dip in his hotel pool.
The trip home to promote his latest blockbuster is also a chance for Chris to catch up with Melbourne-based relatives — he has been spotted on the balcony of his hotel with his mum, dad and grandfather today — but he didn't bring along his newest family member, baby daughter India, and wife Elsa Pataky to Australia with him. On how fatherhood has changed him, he said, “Work all paled into the background as soon as I had a baby. She has taken up all of my attention in the best way.” Chris’ SWATH co-star Kristen Stewart is also in the country and made a low-key arrival at the airport yesterday. Together with their director, Rupert Sanders, the stars will walk the white carpet at SWATH’s premiere at Westfield Bondi Junction tomorrow night ahead of the film’s June 21 release.
