As Hemsworth revealed in the documentary, he recently learned that he was at high risk for developing Alzheimer’s. The documentary also revealed an incredibly personal moment he shared with his wife, actress and model Elsa Pataky, after receiving the news.

Because the disease could start progressing at any moment, Chris Hemsworth had a simple request; he wanted to see his wife grow old. So Elsa did what she could and hired a makeup artist to age her so that he has that image of her.

And the moment Chris and Elsa shared together has brought tears to so many people’s eyes. As one person on Twitter said, it was “insanely beautiful and sad as well but so romantic. Love wins always.”

You can watch a brief clip of the heartbreaking moment below:

Elsa and Chris are reported to have first started dating in 2010. In that same year, the beautiful couple got married during the 2010 holiday season.

The couple shares three children together, one daughter and twin sons. The Hemsworth family currently lives in Chris’s native country, Australia.
