Just the prospect of one of the most beautiful women in the world, getting together and marrying one of the most handsome men, is exciting.
But you know that? A pair as such is in existence. Meet Elsa Pataky and her extremely handsome husband, Chris Hemsworth, or as the whole world calls him, “Thor.”
Before Chris Hemsworth
Now, I know that this is a very unconventional way to start things off.
They were wandering about in someone’s personal life the opposite way. But this way, you and all of the Pataky as well as Hemsworth fans know where the couple comes from.
Before Hemsworth, the Spanish beauty had her fair share of affairs.
Pataky’s first reported romantic affair was with Michaël Benayoun, an actor, singer, comedian, and much more.
Both shared very different backgrounds. While Senora Pataky was born in Spain, her beau Benayoun was born in France.
Pataky and Benayoun dated each other for about two years and ended their romance in 2006.
Shortly after her break up with French actor Michaël, Pataky found love with Adrien Brody, the “King Kong” star the same year in 2006.
Adrian Brody Bought A Castle
In 2006, Adrian Brody and Elsa Pataky began dating each other, and things grew very serious, very quickly.
Just into one year, Brody made up his mind of spending the rest of his life together with Pataky.
As a gesture of forever, Adrian Brody bought a Castle, a gigantic, real-life castle for Pataky so the couple could move in together.
Brody reportedly brought Pataky to the grounds of the castle, and when Pataky saw the castle and asked it was theirs, Brody said,
“Yes – welcome home.”
After buying the New York-based 19th century Stone Barn Castle, worth $650,000 in 2007, Brody and Pataky moved in together.
After that, Brody and Pataky did an exclusive spread for Hello! That was 35 pages turn.
Unfortunately, the romance did not last forever, as initially thought by the couple. In 2009, Brody and Pataky ended things together.
Even though the love failed, Brody did acquire a major real estate right in the middle of New York.
As of now, American actor Adrian Brody is dating London born fashion designer and actress Georgina Rose Chapman.
As for Pataky, she found the love of her life after Adrian Brody break-up.
Elsa Pataky Meets Chris Hemsworth
After break up from “The Pianist” actor Adrian Brody, Pataky found love with another famous actor, Chris Hemsworth.
In 2010, a talent agent by the name William Ward introduced Pataky and Hemsworth for some professional business.
Pataky fell in love with Hemsworth right when the couple spoke on the phone for the first time. She said,
“His voice is amazing! Before I met him, I heard his voice on the phone, and that was what I loved. He was probably making it even deeper.”
The Australian actor also stated how he felt that everything was just right with Pataky after they first met each other.
“From the first time we met, we just made sense. She’s fun. She’s outgoing, and she has a sense of humor and a passionate attitude toward life, which is nice to try to keep up with.”
Just three months after dating, Pataky and Hemsworth decided to get married.
Elsa Pataky Married Chris Hemsworth
Both Pataky and Hemsworth are of very extroverted and spontaneous nature. Both had introduced their families to one another and were looking forward to their relationship.
In December 2010, Pataky and Hemsworth went on a family trip to Sumba, Indonesia, with both of the families on board.
It was during that time when Hemsworth and Pataky agreed to the spontaneous idea of getting married.
The idea Hemsworth when they realized that both their families were on the trip and that would be a good opportunity while everyone was together.
“Honestly, we had both our families on holiday at the same time, just randomly, and we said this is a good opportunity with everyone together, so we just did it.”
On December 26, 2010, Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth married each other is Suma, Indonesia, in front of their family.
Because the wedding happened so quickly, that it did not give the couple any time to do legal modifications, like Elsa taking on the last name, “Hemsworth.”
According to Hemsworth, both of their professional life was very busy at the moment, and moreover, there were issues with passport as well.
Because of that, Elsa did not take Chris’s last name, although, according to Hemsworth, she wanted to.
Building a Family
Pataky and Hemsworth married each other after just three months of dating. It took the couple no time to escalate their relationship, and personally, I’m glad that they did it.
About one and a half years after their marriage, Pataky became pregnant with the couple’s first child.
In May of 2012, Pataky and Hemsworth welcomed their daughter India Rose.
About a year later, baby India had siblings on the way. In 2013, Pataky became pregnant for the second time.
In March 2014, Pataky gave birth to twin sons, Tristan and Sasha.
The whole family currently lives in Byron Bay, Australia.
Secret Behind Long Marriage – Pataky and Hemsworth
Pataky, who appeared as a cop who fell in love with Vin Diesel’s character Dominic in “Fast & Furious” installments, says her marriage isn’t perfect.
In an interview, Pataky revealed how she and Hemsworth constantly work on their marriage despite people thinking their marriage is perfect.
Elsa said that she and the “Avengers” actor have their ups and downs moment in their marriage.
In 2010, the only notable role that Hemsworth had done was in “Star Trek” as George Kirk.
After their marriage, in 2011, Hemsworth got the role of “Thor,” and that changed everything for the star.
Pataky said that she experienced all of Chris’s success and all the changes that came with it as well.
Hemsworth, on the other hand, feels quite the same. In an interview, he revealed how he grew a different kind of appreciation for his wife after she gave birth to their babies.
Both of them work relentlessly in their marriage to make it work. And so far, everything is on track.
Elsa Pataky Nude Photo Scandal
In 2007, a publishing group called Ediciones Zeta secretly captured a topless photo of Elsa. However, the problem here was that the publishing house used a long lens camera to capture the image.
During that time, Elsa was doing a photo shoot for Elle magazine and was changing into another set of clothes for the photoshoot.
While changing, the photographer captured the top nude picture of Elsa, and the group published it.
The “12 Strong” actress filed a lawsuit against the publishing house, and in 2012, the court made a decision in her favor.
Spain’s Supreme court awarded Pataky £250,000 or $310,000, citing invasion of privacy.
