While Chris Hemsworth decided to take some time from Hollywood to focus on his family, we didn’t realise times were so tough he’s had to resort to selling horse poo to get by.

We jest, we jest – the Avengers star is merely creating a small empire outside his $20million (£10m) Byron Bay mansion back in Australia by selling manure.

That’s a nifty business plan.

Chilling at his beachside crib over the festive break, the Thor actor – who is estimated to be worth $130m (£98m) – advertised $2 (£1.07) bags of ‘horse poo’ – no false advertising there – and Chris himself was a personal salesman.

In a video uploaded to social media last week, the 36-year-old could be seen flexing those biceps as he carted off bags of the garden-loving stuff for punters keen to get some of the Hemsworth’s new business venture.

Packing them in the back of his pick-up, it seemed they’d cleared out the family stables – with Chris’s wife Elsa previously seen riding faithful steeds along the beach – with numerous bags of manure waiting to go.

At the sale site, a handwritten sign advertising the wares for a couple of bucks apiece also read: ‘Please don’t take sign,’ with the ‘please’ underlined several times to try and deter would-be thieves from nicking the famous dad’s ad.

It comes after Chris announced he’ll be depriving us of his devastating good looks and talent for, ooh, a solid ‘six to eight months’ so he can hang out with his family. Apparently his wife Elsa Pataky and their kids India, seven, and five-year-old twins Sasha and Tristan are more important than Hollywood film-making. Selfish, really.

Chris recently announced he was taking time out from Hollywood

‘I’m going to take some time off now – probably six to eight months – and just be at home,’ the star revealed on Australian breakfast show Sunrise.

Hemsy admitted he reached the decision earlier this year when he came to the end of the publicity tour for Avengers: Endgame.

‘I had a real, sort of, come down off the back of that press tour for Avengers and it was the most intense three weeks,’ he explained. ‘I realised that for so long I’d been sort of looking to the future and chasing what next… and then it hit me that, well, this is it.

‘The thing that I’ve worked for and dreamed of doing, and I’ve just got to enjoy this moment.’
