"But how?!" Chris Hemsworth shares stunning photo of ageless mum

"But how?!" Chris Hemsworth shares stunning photo of ageless mum

Chris and Liam Hemsworth celebrated their mum Leonie’s 60th birthday with a relaxed family get-together over the weekend. 

And proving that they are perhaps the most genetically blessed family in Australia, Chris took to Instagram to share a few photos of his mum, surprising fans after they learnt she was 60.

In the snaps, Leonie looked younger than ever as she wore a flower crown and stood alongside her movie star son.

Chris called Leonie “the greatest mum on earth” in the accompanying caption – and she scored a lot more compliments in the comments underneath, as dozens of fans expressed disbelief at her age, many saying she looked more like his sister.

"But how??" wrote one person.

“Are you kidding me?? … she is 60! No way … she seems to be your younger sis … omg,” commented another.

“Wait what?! She’s 60?? She looks so damn young!!” said a shocked fan.

This isn’t the first time the English teacher’s appearance has caused a stir among fans, as her appearance at a football game in 2018 had fans stunned at the good looks of the two senior Hemsworths.

Earlier this year, Chris opened up about what prompted he and wife Elsa Pataky’s big move from LA to blissful Byron Bay six years ago.

“You’re a little bit too much in the eye of the storm when you’re living in Hollywood,” he told GQ of the move.

“Living in Australia, it’s also easier to detach myself from work – and you get a bit more leeway to let a few emails and phone calls slide on by.”

He’d earlier admitted to feeling “suffocated” by his career while still living in Los Angeles.

“When you’re suffocated by the work, every conversation that you’re having and every billboard you’re seeing is to do with a movie or whatever around the industry. You lose perspective,” he said.
