克里斯-海姆斯沃斯阿爾茨海默氏症的風險促使演員休息演戲

赫姆斯沃思了解到,他有兩個基因ApoE4的副本,一個來自他的母親,一個來自他的父親,這使得他患這種疾病的可能性比那些沒有兩個基因副本的人高8到10倍。

"這不像是我被遞上了辭呈,"海姆斯沃斯說,但他補充說這個消息 "真的觸發了我想休息一段時間的想法"。

"如果你看一下阿爾茨海默氏症的預防,預防措施的好處是它會影響你的餘生,"他說。

"這都是關於睡眠管理、壓力管理、營養、運動、健身。這都是一種相同的工具,需要以一種一致的方式來應用。"

他解釋說,他沒有被診斷出患有阿爾茨海默氏病,但已被警告過風險的增加。"他說:"這不是一個預先決定性的基因,但它是一個強有力的跡象。"十年前,我認為它更多地被認為是決定性的。"

赫姆斯沃思說,該系列的最初計劃是讓他在鏡頭前接受所有的基因測試結果--但系列創作者達倫-阿羅諾夫斯基在他們得到結果後私下告訴他。

隨後,這位奇蹟明星被允許選擇從劇中刪除任何有關阿爾茨海默氏症的內容,但他決定將他的阿爾茨海默氏症的遺傳風險包括在內,以提高人們的認識和理解。

"他說:"我擔心的是,我只是不想操縱它,把它過度戲劇化,使它成為某種虛偽的搶奪同情心或任何娛樂的東西。


Hemsworth learned that he has two copies of the gene ApoE4, one from his mother and one from his father, making him between eight and 10 times more likely to develop the disease than those without both copies of the gene.

"It's not like I've been handed my resignation," Hemsworth said, but added the news "really triggered something in me to want to take some time off".

"If you look at Alzheimer's prevention, the benefit of preventative steps is that it affects the rest of your life," he said.

"It's all about sleep management, stress management, nutrition, movement, fitness. It's all kind of the same tools that need to be applied in a consistent way."

He explained that he had not been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, but had been warned of the heightened risk. "It's not a pre-deterministic gene, but it is a strong indication," he said. "Ten years ago, I think it was more thought of as determinant."

Hemsworth said the original plan for the series would have seen him receive all his genetic test results live to camera - but series creator Darren Aronofsky told him privately once they got the results.

The Marvel star was subsequently given the option of removing any references to Alzheimer's from the show, but decided to include his genetic risk of Alzheimer's to improve awareness and understanding.

"My concern was I just didn't want to manipulate it and over-dramatise it, and make it into some sort of hokey grab at empathy or whatever for entertainment," he said.
