Chris Hemsworth’s family fears

Chris Hemsworth doesn't let anything scare him.

In the world of movies, the actor often plays bold characters such as Greek God Thor and fearless racing driver James Hunt in Rush.

He's been married to Elsa Pataky since 2010 and last year their daughter India was born, which has changed his outlook on life.

"I can't think of anything that really scares me..." he mused to German magazine Bravo.

"But since I'm a daddy, I keep worrying about my family and whether they're OK when I'm not there."

In his spare time, the star likes to go surfing, especially when it's windy and the waves are extra high.

However, it can lead to accidents, with the Australian actor even saving someone's life in the past.

"I like [stormy weather] because the beaches are nice and quiet," he explained.

"This guy looked like he was going to drown, so I jumped in the water, swam over to him and pulled him onto land. It was like Baywatch!"

Chris, 30, is the older brother of 23-year-old Liam Hemsworth, who appears in the popular The Hunger Games franchise.

They're a family of achievers, and Chris is a big believer in never giving up.

"Never let anyone tell you you can't do something!" he advised.

"I've always looked at it this way: I'm a boxer! I get into the ring and I fight. I never give up!"
