Despite that fast break, Hemsworth almost quit acting and moved back to Australia after 'Star Trek'.
He was turning heads, but the roles weren't exactly pouring in.
"I was ready to pack it in and come home.
It was like, 'This is killing me.'"
In life, it's hard to know when enough is enough.
The same, of course, can be said for the world celebrity.
For some celebs, packing it in is unthinkable,
even though more than a few fans wonder why some semi-famous faces don't just fade away.
You're 52 years old,
and it's not being talked about enough that hey man, hey gal, it's not over.
If you want it so bad, if it's in you,
maybe it's not time to take up golf or pack it in.
Maybe it's time to actually triple down
and really focus on your 7 p.m. to 2 in the morning.
