Though the results are not a guarantee of an Alzheimer's diagnosis, Hemsworth says they make him “8-10” times more likely to develop the disease. “It really triggered something in me to want to take some time off,” Hemsworth told VF in an interview. “And since we finished the show, I've been completing the things I was already contracted to do.

Now when I finish this tour this week, I'm going home and I'm going to have a good chunk of time off and just simplify. Be with the kids, be with my wife.” The Aussie shares three children with his wife of 12 years, Elsa Pataky.The actor also revealed that there was a discussion about whether or not he should share his results on the show or keep them private.

Ultimately, he made the decision to film his results in the hopes that they might inspire someone else to get the test so that they can be better equipped to take preventative measures. “If this is a motivator for people to take better care of themselves and also understand that there are steps you can take—then fantastic,” Hemsworth says he told the producers. “My concern was I just didn't want to manipulate it and overdramatize it, and make it into some sort of hokey grab at empathy or whatever for entertainment.” Despite his results, Hemsworth underscores that he is not quitting acting altogether, but he may be more selective with future projects.
