“When you’re suffocated by the work, every conversation that you’re having and every billboard you’re seeing is to do with a movie or whatever around the industry,” Hemsworth, 36, told. “You lose perspective.”

“There’s not a single person [in Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia] that I interact with, or close friends of mine, that are really in the industry and so that’s hugely refreshing,” the actor said. “It’s great for my kids and my wife.”
