Trying to maintain a healthy work-life balance can be hard for anyone, even if you possess superpowers on the big screen. Chris Hemsworth is opening up about his family life and how his wife Elsa Pataky wants him home more -- and how that's a reality he's not ready to face just yet.


In GQ Australia's November issue he reveals how much success has taken a toll on his marriage -- causing wife Elsa to sacrifice more than he has at times.

"My wife and I fell in love, had kids, didn't really see each other for a few years, then fell back in love," the 34-year-old heartthrob admits in his magazine interview. "In terms of work, she's certainly given up more than I have."

Chris also confesses his wife would love for him to be home more. But with his budding career -- avenging as Thor, or Star Trek–king across the galaxy -- that doesn't seem to be in the cards ... at least for right now.

"She'd like me to step back and be at home with the kids more, and of course, I want that, too," Hemsworth mentions to GQ. "But I feel like I'm at this crucial point in my career -- I've just got to set up for longevity or I'll slip off."

Though Chris likely won't be slowing down his career anytime soon, he is working to keep things on track with his wife, especially since they have three young kids (daughter India, 5, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, 3) and, well, you know how that goes (#thestruggleisreal).

"Once you have children, every instinct and every moment of your time is consumed by that," the dad of three divulges. "You've got nothing for each other, so make sure you have date night even if it's once in a blue moon, because most of the time you're just too tired and you'd actually prefer to sleep."

Hopefully things will continue working out for this couple -- and become more balanced if and when Elsa feels overwhelmed holding down the fort. Sadly, we've seen one too many celebs call it quits due to their schedule's demands.
