Chris Hemsworth is one lucky guy. Not only does he have a beautiful family and a superhero physique that other guys would kill (and/or starve) for, but he also has a massive Hollywood bank account to boot.
Over the course of his career, the 36-year-old actor has gone from making a few scattered Australian TV appearances to playing a Marvel leading man and frequent action (and comedy) hero. But just how much money has Thor, God of Thunder, been able to rake in? Probably enough to buy himself a pretty nice place in Asgard, that's for sure.
Just to note: Net worth is always a tricky number to calculate—or rather, to confirm. Most figures below likely exist within a range and are not exact. Consider deviations of plus/minus $10 million. Which, by the way, is just insane. Don’t you wish sources could miscalculate your fortune by that amount?
We digress. Here's everything we know about Chris Hemsworth's net worth.
How much did Chris Hemsworth make for Extraction?
Let’s start with his most recent film, Extraction, a $65 million streaming endeavor that Hemsworth admits was his most exhausting movie thus far to shoot. It's also maybe one of the his cheaper recent films, far less expensive than Hemsworth’s last blockbuster Men in Black: International, which had a budget around $110 million.
While it’s hard to confirm exact salary per film, we know that one of Hemsworth’s most lucrative roles was as Thor in Avengers: Endgame, in which it was confirmed that he made $15 million. The film had a $320 million budget, making Hemsworth’s share about 4.6 percent. In Extraction, Hemsworth isn’t sharing the screen with A-list actors like Robert Downey Jr. and so probably takes home a bigger percentage cut. Somewhere just north of $5 million would probably be a conservative estimate.
But it took a while for Hemsworth to get to these heights.
Chris Hemsworth made $37 million in 2014.
The Australian actor began his career in his home country in 2002, where he made minor appearances on various television shows before becoming a series regular on Home and Away from 2004 to 2007.
His first big Hollywood break came in 2009, when he appeared as George Kirk, Captain Kirk's father, in Star Trek. He became a bonafide household name two years later, when he wielded his hammer as the leading man in Thor. The film made more than $65 million its opening weekend, and has gone on to gross nearly $450 million worldwide.
In 2014—the year after Thor: The Dark World hit theaters—Forbes reported that Hemsworth raked in $37 million, making him one of Hollywood's highest-paid actors of the year.
Chris Hemsworth made $27 million in 2015.
It may have been a dip from his 2014 earnings, but $27 million was still enough to earn him 15th place on Forbes' list of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood that year.
Hemsworth dropped off the list in 2016. But don't worry: He made a comeback.
Chris Hemsworth earned $31.5 million in 2017.
In 2017, Forbes named Hemsworth the 11th highest-paid actor in Hollywood. By that point, he had a host of Marvel movies under his belt, including Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Chris Hemsworth earned $64.5 million in 2018.
Yup, you read that right: In 2018, Hemsworth more than doubled his salary from the previous year, according to Forbes. It didn't hurt that Avengers: Infinity War shattered more box office records than we can wrap our heads around.
Chris Hemsworth's net worth is estimated to be around $130 million.
Some sources place Hemsworth's net worth around $131 million as of Spring 2020 with his social media accounts worth almost $47 million. (Online calculators estimate a single Hemsworth Instagram post could net the actor $100,000.)
Again, this is probably a liberal estimate and could be off by as much as $20 million in either direction. But still, what's $20 million to a god?
