Chris Hemsworth Tries to Keep His Son Quiet During Interview, Tristan, 6, Crashes Instead

Working from home is no joke! Chris Hemsworth became like every other parent in quarantine when his 6-year-old son Tristan crashed his interview in hilarious fashion.

The moment began innocently enough with the actor, 36, trying to shush his son while he played off-camera. “My kid’s in the background,” he admitted during his Wednesday, April 15, video chat with Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.

Hemsworth laughed until Tristan joined him on-camera. The little one seemed unentertained, so he quickly exited.

The Thor star continued looking off; then interviewer Luke Darcy jokingly called him out for not being able to “keep his kids under control” amid the circumstances. “He’s looking at me, right?” he explained. “At the moment I’m giving him a little sort of ‘shh, shh’ — one of these ones — [he’s] doing more and more somersaults. He’s getting a little louder.”

Hemsworth attempted to carry on with the conversation but had to pause again after Tristan started throwing pillows, nearly knocking over his computer.

Hemsworth is quarantined with his family in his native Australia. Despite the conditions, he has found the silver lining in having quality time he has long wanted with the actress, 43, and their children.

“For so many years, kind of having schedules laid out in front of you. You know, I’d know exactly what I was doing most days for the next six to 12 months, and you try to find little holes in the schedule or pockets where you’re like, ‘OK, I’m gonna switch the phone off for this two weeks and have time at home and not travel this month or whatever,’” he said. “And then something would come up and then you’d be pulled in another direction, and so to have that, as you say, sort of forced upon you in a way, to find a positive out of that, I’m enjoying this sort of being in the moment.”
