Chris Hemsworth is planning on penning a memoir. The Thor actor made the decision after learning that he was at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. The disease is said to be genetic, and the actor is concerned that he will soon develop it. The Marvel star revealed that he made the discovery while shooting for the Disney+ series, Limitless. The Australian native further shared that he is between eight and ten times more likely to be hit by the memory loss disease. 

What Did The Sources Close To The Actor Say About The Memoir?

Speaking to an entertainment portal, sources close to Hemsworth revealed that the actor has been taking the idea of the memoir seriously, and has been working towards it religiously. The insiders shared, “His biggest worry was his family and knowing there would be a day when his kids would be looking after him. It's given him a much deeper perspective on life.” They further added, “Chris started jotting down ideas for his book after his 40th birthday last August.”

Moreover, the Avengers actor’s friend, too, commented on the memoir that seems to be in progress. He said, “Things weren't that serious until last week, when he hired one of LA's top literary agents. He doesn't want this to be another boring celebrity memoir.” The friend continued to say, “Nor does he have any plans to spill celebrity secrets, but he does want to talk about his role as a modern-day dad and staying healthy.”
