Chris Hemsworth net worth and salary: Chris Hemsworth is an Australian actor and model who has a net worth of $40 million. Chris Hemsworth is probably most famous today for the role of Thor, his net worth isn't just the result of his embodying the God of Thunder. After doing a little acting in Australia, he made his debut in America playing James Kirk's father in the 2009 Star Trek reboot. He then got a role in the same year's A Perfect Getaway. Both he and his brother auditioned for the role of Thor, but it was actually his brother who made the shortlist before director Kenneth Branagh decided to reevaluate previous contenders for the role. It was then that Hemsworth got the part, and even critics who hated the movie had to give credit to Hemsworth's wonderful performance. Since Thor, Hemsworth has been cast in the horror movie The Cabin in the Woods and the remake of Red Dawn. He was also cast as "the huntsman" in Snow White and the Huntsman. However, his most anticipated upcoming work is most definitely in The Avengers franchise, in which he will be reprising the role of Thor as he joins up with other super-heroes in an unprecedented cinematic event. In 2013 alone, Chris Hemsworth earned $58 million thanks to roles in Rush and Thor.
