Chris Hemsworth says he’s ‘failing miserably’ home-schooling his kids and using ‘bribery’ during coronavirus lockdown – The Sun

ACTOR Chris Hemsworth has admitted he’s “failing miserably” when it comes to home-schooling his children.

The star – who is quarantining at home in Australia with wife Elsa Pataky and their family – said his kids much prefer to spend time on YouTube instead.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel over video chat, Chris said: "I'm trying, I'm failing miserably.

"It's sort of four or five hours of negotiation and bribery and then maybe 20 minutes of actual work, if that."

Chris, 36, also said he’s struggling to understand his kids’ work.

He said: "Everything has changed since I was in school. I was talking to the teacher about it, the adding and subtracting and so on, it's not quite as straightforward now.


"There's all these new little tricks and so on, which I don't understand. So good luck me teaching my kids."

Despite his struggle, Chris has realized he can only do his best.

He laughed: "I've just relaxed into the idea that they're going to come out of this quarantine [with an] IQ a little under par. A little behind".

The actor has discovered a new hobby since going into lockdown – mowing the lawn.



He said: "I got this ride-on mower a few months back and there's something quite therapeutic about it and it may be just a few hours of escape from having to entertain three kids 24/7."

Chris – who plays Thor in the Marvel Universe and stars in Netflix’s new movie Extraction – moved to Byron Bay in 2015 with his family.

His $20 million mega-mansion has a whopping ten bathrooms, according to the Gold Coast Bulletin.

It’s believed his brother Liam is building a home nearby following his divorce from Miley Cyrus.

The Hunger Games star moved back to his native Australia when he split from the singer in August last year after 8 months of marriage.
