Chris Hemsworth talks hellish journey

Chris Hemsworth has joked that his baby twin boys are too "lazy" to dress themselves.

The Aussie hunk is a proud father to daughter India and twin boys Sacha and Tristan with wife Elsa Pataky, who he tied the knot with in 2010.

Both stars having successful acting careers means the family often jet around the globe for work. But not every journey is smooth, as Chris realised recently.

“We actually flew from Australia to London [UK] the other day and door-to-door it’s about a 30-hour trip and it was kinda like the trip from hell," Chris recalled to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. "They were all sick and literally took it in turns to scream. Like one would kind of do it and look over and say, ‘I’m done you want a turn?' 'Yup.' And the whole cabin was... Yeah, wanted to kick us off."

He added that he doesn't know what people expect when parents bring their offspring on a plane, joking: "You gonna put them in a suitcase or something?"

Ellen came up with the humorous idea that there should be a separate plane especially for tots which flies alongside the aircraft carrying their parents, dubbing the proposal Baby Airlines.

Luckily for Chris the rest of fatherhood is a dream. His little girl is bi-lingual in English and Spanish thanks to her Mediterranean mother and puts her dad to shame with her knowledge.

The twins have some way to go though after only recently celebrating their first birthdays.

"I don't know what's wrong with them," Chris quipped when Ellen pointed out that they're too young to learn another language. "They can't even walk properly either. I have to dress them, they're a bit lazy."
