In November 2022, Thor star Chris Hemsworth announced that he was taking a step back from acting after he found out that he was at high risk of Alzheimer's disease. He discovered this on an episode of his National Geographic docuseries titled Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, which is streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.

After the revelation, Chris spoke about his fears on one episode of the show, saying, “The idea that I won’t be able to remember the life I’ve experienced, or my wife, my kids ― this is probably my biggest fear.” 

So, his wife, Elsa Pataky, decided to do something unique to comfort her husband. To confront his aging worries, Elsa dressed up as a 87-year-old woman – complete with prosthetics, a wig and professional makeup – and went on a date with Chris. The Marvel actor had no idea about the plan and was only told that he would be meeting an elderly fan. The actor looks visibly surprised when he walks into a restaurant and finds that it is his wife who is waiting for him at the table. They then go on to dance and have a good time together.

Watch a clip from the episode of Limitless with Chris Hemsworth here:

Chris' emotional reaction to seeing his considerably older wife and his instant reaction – calling her "still beautiful" – has been winning the internet. 

The comments section is flooded with emotional replies such as, "Ok I’m sobbing", to "Oh my God! That is so sweet. I hope nothing ever happens to Chris; he is a lovely man." One user also commented, "This is absolutely beautiful and a perfect example of true love ❤️".

Limitless with Chris Hemsworth is available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
