There is something about moving that whole world here that gives you a different perspective, “the Tidelands actress said in the February 2020 issue of Vogue AustraliaShe noted that her daughter was starting to get nervous with photographers in LA “I love nature and I love being outside, and I wanted my kids to have that freedom, so we decided to leave.”

“I feel like Hollywood eats you in such a way that it always feels like work,” she said at the time. “I think when you’re in it, you don’t even realize it, but when you get out, everything changes.”

Hemsworth, for his part, promised to take a short break from the Hollywood crowds in June 2019 so he could spend more time with his family. Almost a year later, he said he was still looking for the perfect “balance” in his life.

“I probably spent 15 years in what felt like a marathon, a constant workload,” he said GQ Australia in May. “So much of my energy is focused on that and when I had kids at the same time, I constantly tried to find the balance. I really longed for more rest and felt a clear need to slow down. ”
