Netflix Drops Date For Extraction 2 As Chris Hemsworth Plans For Health Break
On June 16, Netflix will release Extraction 2, the latest film starring Chris Hemsworth. This news follows reports that the actor plans to reduce his workload after receiving a concerning health diagnosis.
Hemsworth discovered his predisposition to Alzheimer’s while filming an episode about death for his Disney+ docuseries Limitless. Bloodwork for the program revealed that he is “between eight and 10 times” more likely to develop the disease than the general population.
As a result, Hemsworth has adopted a healthier lifestyle to reduce his risk.
He told Vanity Fair, “For me, the positive of it was like: ‘Right, if I didn’t know this information, I wouldn’t have made the changes I made.’
“I just wasn’t aware of any of it, so now I feel thankful that I have in my arsenal the sort of tools to best prepare myself and prevent things happening in that way.” Hemsworth’s biggest fear is forgetting his wife Elsa Pataky and their children due to Alzheimer’s.”
