“Thunder God” Chris Hemsworth and his 7-year-old wife Elsa Pataky have been together for 11 years. The famous and wealthy couple is an admirable symbol of a happy marriage.
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky got married in 2010 after less than a year of dating. When the couple got married, Chris Hemsworth wasn’t really as famous as he is now. Chris Hemsworth got married at the age of 27 and his wife was 34 years old at the time and the Australian actor said he felt it was completely right to get married early.
In an interview with Elle magazine in 2010, Chris Hemsworth said: “From the first time we met, we felt compatible. She was fun. She was outgoing, had a good sense of humor and attitude. Her enthusiasm for life, she has a lifestyle that is worth studying.”
Nearly two years after the wedding, the handsome actor and his wife welcomed their first daughter and two years later, Chris and his wife had another set of twins, two boys. Being a father of three, Hemsworth says, is a great thing for him. “Having a baby is the best thing. You can spend hours with your baby.”
Since 2015, Hemsworth and his family moved from Los Angeles, USA to live in Byron Bay, New South Wales in Australia, the actor’s hometown. Chris Hemsworth said, Hollywood is a favorable place to develop his career, but that place is too noisy. He and his wife wanted their children to live a peaceful life, so they brought them back to Australia to live in the hope that they would have a relaxed life like other children.
Since marrying Elsa Pataky, Chris Hemsworth’s career has gone up as fast as “the kite meets the wind”. He first received the role of God of Thunder in 2011 and the film was so successful at the box office that the producer continued to make sequels in the following years.
Chris Hemsworth has become one of the highest paid actors in the world. He appeared in the list of the highest paid actors in the world voted by Forbes magazine in 2014, 2018 and 2019. In 2019 alone, the Australian actor’s income is estimated at 76.4 million USD.
While Chris Hemsworth’s career flourished, Elsa Pataky retreated to be a solid rear for her husband. The actress of the film Too Fast, Too Dangerous spends almost all of her time taking care of her family and three young children. From a star specializing in appearing with flashy images in events, Elsa Pataky is now very simple in everyday life.
“When you have kids, suddenly your career isn’t as important as it used to be. When you become a mother, you change a lot, you grow up, you look at life differently and learn a lot.” .
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have been married for 11 years and as the beautiful actress shared, over time, she and her husband have grown up together. “We have grown together. A marriage is not simple, but we have both turned out well because we love each other very much even though my husband and I are both very strong personalities.”
The 45-year-old actress added that her marriage is not always as rosy as people think. “It’s funny how people think we’re the perfect couple. Things aren’t always rosy, everyone goes through ups and downs and we continue to work hard to keep this marriage. I think you should always try to maintain and develop your relationship. Things are not easy and I choose to always promote the positive sides of others.”
