Elsa Pataky confirms to Hola Mag that she’s pregnant with twins


Did you know that Elsa Pataky gives all of her exclusives to Hello/Hola! Magazine? True story. When Adrian Brody bought her a castle, Hello got the photos. When she sold her wedding photos (from her marriage to Chris Hemsworth), Hello got them. When she confirmed her second pregnancy, she did it to Hola. And now she’s confirming to Hello/Hola that she’s pregnant WITH TWINS. Oh, Elsa. You played this really well. I have to give you a slow clap.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky are expecting twins, HELLO! magazine’s sister publication HOLA! has exclusively learnt.

The Spanish actress, 37 and the Thor actor, 30, were last seen attending the 2014 Golden Globes awards ceremony over the weekend, making it Elsa’s first high-profile appearance since she announced her pregnancy.

Dressed in an elegant floor-length black Paule Ka gown, Elsa looked the picture of happiness with Chris on her arm. The couple beamed at the cameras, with Chris photographed tenderly touching Elsa’s baby bump.

Elsa, who is in her third trimester, is expected to give birth in spring. The twins will join toddler India Rose, who will turn two shortly after the twins arrive.

[From Hello]

Well, this sort of explains why Elsa went from looking slightly booby in September and then full-on crazy pregnant four months later. She expecting twins! What do you think – two girls, two boys or one of each? My money’s on two boys for whatever reason. Anyway… what else is there to say, people? Elsa is going to be around for a while. Elsa and Chris are going to be together for a long time. Elsa is going to get in with the Mother Mafia of Hollywood – Jen Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, those women will be her new friends. I imagine even Gwyneth Paltrow will mention Elsa in a Goop-letter.

PS… Tommy Hiddleston will be at least one of the twins’ godfathers, right?

    She got her claws into him good.

    (usually I think saying a woman has a baby to trap a man is gross, but Elsa has a looooooooooong history of famewhoring and trying to get men on the rise)

    • Spooks says:

      Wouldn’t the babies have only one godfather? Probably the same as their older sister, no?

    • Malificent says:

      Spooks, I think you’re thinking of guardians — friends or relatives who will have legal and custodial responsibility for all of the children in the family if something happens to the parents. Godparents have responsibility for the spiritual upbringing of the child — but that mostly ends up being an honorary position.

      I think some countries combine the two roles — when my aunt, who is not from the US like me, asked me to be godmother to my (much younger) cousin, she made the assumption that I would also be her guardian. So, we had to discuss that to make me her guardian in the US, we would also have to do a separate set of legal papers.

      • Spooks says:

        I’ve never even heard of guardians, I meant godparents in the religious sense ( but just on paper, they don’t really have any responsibility for the religious upbringing, they’re more like an aunt and uncle). My and my sister’s godparents are my mum and dad’s best friends ( conveniently, they’re married to each other) and we’re all really close, but if something had happened to my parents, my and my sister would be taken care of by our real aunts and uncles, because they’re family. Children always go to the family if something happens.

      • LeLe25 says:

        In my family the Godparents are like a second set of parents that are present for life milestones, provide a second web of support, and are responsible for caring for the children if something happens to the parents.

        I have never heard of godparents being assigned without the role of guardians (in the parents absence); I guess you learn something new everyday!

    • FLORC says:

      She has Adrian, but who else?
      For what it’s worth they do seem to be in love.

  2. Jegede says:

    Elsa Pataky’s litany of plastic surgery is so much that my Madrid friends look at pictures of her on the HW red carpet and do a triple take

  3. Anna says:

    Of course she sold the story to the same rag that published her EFFING SOLO wedding photos!!!

    And you’re totally right on GOOP. She and GOOP got well-acquainted at Sean Penn’s gala a couple of days ago, same table and all. She’s playing in the big leagues now.

  4. ali says:

    Slow clap and a hand stand! The smartest woman in hollywood. My guess is boy/girl. Perth and Penny!

  5. Relli says:

    Whoa I never realized how much older she is then him.

  6. blue marie says:

    Well played Elsa. I think it will be a boy and girl.

  7. T.fanty says:

    Hot damn, that woman is good at her job.

  8. Juliette says:

    Something about her makes me think she went to the doctor for those twins…

    • Size Does Matter says:

      I totally buy that. Ever notice the unusual number of celebrities with twins? Mariah Carey, JLo, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Marcia Cross… I’m sure I’m leaving some out.

      • Malificent says:

        With the exception of Angelina, all of the others were in their late 30s or 40s when they conceived. There is a slight natural increase in the chance for fraternal twins for older moms, although most of them likely had a fertility assist. Some, like JLo , were pretty open about difficulties getting pregnant. I think the only difference between the older-mom celebrity population and the regular population is that they are more likely to be able to afford cutting-edge or extended fertility treatments.

      • Cazzee says:

        Angelina Jolie used IVF to conceive her twins, also.

      • Maya says:

        @Cazzee: Angelina Jolie didn’t have IVF (Angelina confirmed that herself and said that if she did have IVF she will openly admit it because it’s nothing to be shameful about).

        Twins runs on Brad’s side so that is why they have twins.

      • V says:

        Are you all sure about this IVF to get twins for these stars? What woman would want to stretch out her skin so badly? With a single baby if you don’t gain too much weight you can snap right back in to looking normal. I highly doubt that with twins that is going to happen. I think the skin will be very stretch and woman is pretty vain.

      • Mel says:


        Having fraternal twins which is what Brad. and Angie have means she dropped two eggs and both were fertilized. It has nothing to do wth Brad having twins on his side of the family.

        Now if they were identical then he might have something to do with it.

    • Prim says:

      And if she did, that would have been no picnic and would have meant someone has issues with fertility. Not something to be snide about really.

      • Juliette says:

        Prim – You assume that she had fertility issues. I do not think she did. I think she had easy access to top-notch fertility doctors, and she doesn’t really have anything else going on these days. Why not have a bigger family, more cute photos, more fame and headlines for her and Chris. Heck, twins are practically a right of passage in Hollywood these days.

    • Lolo-ology says:

      It’s because she’s 37. Once you’re past a certain age, your odds of having twins skyrockets, and exponentially so, every year. I forget the exact age where that starts, though. But at her age, it’s not surprising at all.

      • Valerie says:

        I’ve read that, too. When you’re older your body starts shooting out as many eggs as possible to get rid of them.

      • Juliette says:

        Yes, but women over 35 are also more likely to seek the assistance of a doctor in becoming pregnant, which also contributes to the increased rate of twins in older moms.

      • Gine says:

        I didn’t know that! And now I’m a little worried, because I’m already 30 and am still not even close to being ready for kids yet…but I want them someday, and twins run in my family in a big way. I get exhausted just thinking about trying to deal with two babies at once.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Not entirely. There’s generally a boost year, somewhere around the late thirties, but overall, it’s the quality of the eggs that decline, leading to fertility problems. As long as one is mensturating, one is (most likely) still releasing eggs. If she was on something like clomid (sp?), her hormones were stimulated to drop more eggs per ovulation, which is a common route for women who are older and may not have a year to wait, trying the old fashioned way.

        And I’m not going to criticize anyone for taking the clinical route for babies they want. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Also, a lot of healthy and age-appropriate women have fertility issues after one baby. It’s more common than you would imagine.

      • Prim says:

        @Juliette, IVF even with the best doctors in the world, is a horrible experience. It’s not like you just order up a set of twins one afternoon while you read Vogue in a book lined Doctor’s office. You inject yourself daily, feel insane on the hormones and bloat up as drugs try to convince your body to stay pregnant. It’s awful and anyone, so called famewhores included, who goes through that has my sympathy. And there’s no way you can plan to have twins, you can try really hard to have them, but there’s no doctor in the world who can guarantee you’ll have twins, or even that you’ll get pregnant at all.

        Anyone who thinks it’s a rich woman’s opt out is just uninformed about what IVF is.

      • AG-UK says:

        Over 35 each month you either have an egg or you don’t or on certain occasions you have more than one egg hence the twins. I did IVF once and they put in 4 eggs and luckily one took $$$$ later and I had a son. I was lucky because I know many that have done 6x and nothing.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Yep…my aunt had to have injections on her butt for six months to conceive ONE child…..

      • kileyray says:

        Also important to note is that many pregnancies start out as twins but result in single births. I think it is around 25% IIRC. My second daughter was a twin but I lost one. Two heart beats at my first ultrasound at 8 weeks. Most are absorbed but in my case I miscarried one. It also happened to my cousin who was pregnant at the same time as me. They are discovering this more now since earlier ultrasounds are used to determine due dates.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Maybe she took fertility drugs. So what?

      • Tapioca says:

        I think the snark is directed not at people who NEED fertility drugs, but at people suspected of using them to have designer twinsies.

        It’s the difference between Adderall for medicinal purposes or weight loss.

      • Juliette says:

        @Prim , et al.

        I apologize for any offense I may have caused you regarding my snark. I was referring, as Tapioca put so eloquently, in the drug Clomid (not IVF) and the ability of women in Hollywood to have easy access to pills that solve their problems. Valley of the Dolls.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        I agree with Tapioca. There is no shade intended for people using whatever means necessary to help them conceive when that help is needed. But… they should be honest about it. Women see celebrities do it, so they think they can wait until 35 or 40 and then have a baby, but it often isn’t that easy.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Ok, thanks for explaining. I may be a little oversensitive about it.

      • christina says:

        @ Tapioca

        How do you know who has fertility issues and who dosent.

        JOL has twins in her family and Brad Pitt sister has a set od twins so its not a surprise that AJ and JLO have twins.

      • Prim says:

        @Juliette, sweet of you to apologise! No offense taken. I have a particular bug bear about hating on women who have taken fertility drugs. I guess unless someone has been through that process they don’t know how difficult it is to get pregnant. The rich are not exempt from fetility issues, sure they have more options in terms of getting help, but the process of getting pregnant via fertility drugs is just the same for everyone – it sucks and at the end of it you might have put your body through hell and still not have a baby to show for it.

        Thing about having twins that I’ve noticed as I have boy/girl twins, is that everyone remembers you. I doubt you could reel off the number of celebs who have children, but it’s easy to remember who has twins. The women over 40 who have twins are the lucky few, the exception rather than the rule.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        I took clomid with all three pregnancies and never produced more than one egg per cycle (which is unusual for someone with PCOS). Not only does it affect your hormones drastically (and make you an emotional wreck) but it also affects your cervical mucous and the acidity of your cervix (which usually means you must undergo IUI to become pregnant). I also injected myself intramuscularly with HcG to release my egg, and injected myself subcutaneously (in the stomach) with lupron to help with implantation. Not to mention all the humiliating pelvic and post coital exams and weekly ultrasounds.

        People may think that people wouldn’t put themselves through that kind of “torture” to become pregnant if you were able to do it without reproductive assistance, but some people do. I was quite disappointed to hear women tell me that they were at the reproductive endocrinologist because they wanted a child of a certain sex. Meanwhile, I was just hoping I could get pregnant.

        I definitely believe some of the celebrity twin pregnancies mentioned are the product of fertility treatments. Particularly Mariah Carey (who spoke of having a miscarriage and using progesterone to maintain her twin pregnancy). She also put on quite a bit of weight prior to becoming pregnant with the twins which is common with certain fertility drugs (particularly injectables).

      • Juliette says:

        @ Morticians

        I’m sorry you had such difficulties. Fertility issues are heartbreaking.

        From my understanding (and correct me if I am wrong!), not all Clomid users have the same side effects that you experienced. I do not know many women who talk openly about their fertility issues. However, a particular former coworker of mine got married, wanted to have two children, went to a fertility doctor for Clomid, conceived twins after 2 months, had a scheduled c-section followed by a tummy tuck and quit her job. All of this happened within 1 year. She proudly admitted to being “too posh to push” and to having “designer twins.” Obviously the woman was less interested in motherhood than she was in her overall image, and I was snarking on Elsa because there is something about her showiness that reminds me of my former coworker. There really are women who go to specialists just for twins.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        According to many women in the infertility forums, clomid caused mood swings for them too. Several people list the side effects of clomid as being similar to menopause (hot flashes, mood swings etc.). My reproductive endocrinologist told me that the likelihood of depression and/or mood swings increases the longer you’re on it and with an increased dose.

        I agree that certain people use fertility doctors for selfish reasons. I’ve seen a few women who wanted to select the sex of their baby and my endocrinologist offered to give me free IVF if I donated half of my eggs to a couple looking for an attractive donor. I asked if they were looking for someone who resembled the husband or wife and he said no, they were looking for a particular type of woman because they wanted to be sure they had an attractive child.

      • Prim says:

        @Juliette, sounds like the most offensive thing your co-worker did was use a lot of cliches. She used drugs to get pregnant. Got pregnant quickly. Had a c-section. Had a tummy tuck. Left work. All in the space of a year. Yeah, she sounds awful. I’m scandalized.

  9. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I agree that she’s definitely hedging her bets–if they split, imagine the child support she’s gonna get.

    But I’ll be nice—

    WOOT, WOOT! I love twins! I’m a twin, and on my mom’s side there has been a set of twins in every generation, as far back as we can go by…..my cousin just had my generation’s set of identical twin girls…

    • SallyJay says:

      I’m a twin too! I always love your comments, Virgilia!

      • Isa says:

        I’ve always wanted a twin sister. I also wanted to have twins (but didn’t want To be pregnant with them lol.) My grandmother had twin boys that died shortly after birth. I didn’t get twins, but I do have three beautiful children.

      • Aww, thanks! Are you new? I don’t recognize your name.

        I do want to have twins, if I ever get pregnant, but I always wondered how you juggle them, especially if you’re breastfeeding……

      • Isa says:

        I struggle with supply for one kid so breastfeeding two would probably out of the question. But I think the key is the football hold. I think it was Julie Bowen that posted a photo of her breastfeeding twins? It’s a good example. To me it would seem easier than formula feeding, how do you hold two bottles and babies at the same time?
        I would guess getting them on the same schedule is key. Or else you would be feeding, burping, changing diapers and getting one to sleep only to turn around and have to start on the other. Baby wearing and double strollers would be a must.
        My biggest fear would be pregnancy. Twins often come early and I would be afraid it would be too early. Plus pregnancy is uncomfortable with one baby as it is… Then delivery. Many are born by csection and I’ve had one, they’re not easy. Then you could be like one woman I read about. She delivered one twin vaginally and then had a csection for baby B. Bless her heart.
        It’s crazy I’m sure. But damn, twins are amazing, sweet and so cute!

      • mayamae says:

        I’ve had a friend who was overwhelmed by the thought of breastfeeding twins, so she chose to bottle feed. I have another friend with twins who breastfed relatively easily (her words). Her only complaint was, when in the midst of feeding both twins at the same time, her 2 year old daughter managed to turn up the TV to max volume, and she was forced to listen to it until the twins were done.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        My twin and I came three months early–we were about as big as coke cans….my grandma could hold us with one hand. We were in the NICU and on oxygen until about a month after we were born–they thought my brother was going to be blind when he was born (we both have really bad eyes).

        My mom had us naturally though–no c section. She was at the hospital and she felt something coming out–she thought she was about to poop–so she beeped the nurse and told her, and when the nurse looked, it was my head…

  10. Gine says:

    I have to say, she looks fantastic pregnant, especially for someone older (when it usually takes a bigger toll on your body).

  11. lucy2 says:

    A 2 year old and infant twins. They’re lucky they can afford help!
    She does seem to be a social climber, but now that there’s kids involved, I hope it works for them.

  12. mom2two says:

    As of mom of twins, I wish her all the best. But there is something about her that I just totally side eye. Like I have a feeling if these two ever split up-it would be UGLY. And she definitely wants in on the Hollywood Mommy Mafia.

  13. Mimz says:

    Wow we are good at hating on people wow!
    Anyway i have nothing against her, and if she had plastic surgery i cant see it, and i remember her from spanish TV a decade ago and looks the same…
    They just seem like a happy couple who are really all over each other… Good for them!

    And about her social climbing, there arent many hollywood celebs who dont do it, so i am also not going to hold that against her.

    Congrats to the parents!!

  14. Kt says:

    I think it’s nice that she consistently supports these Spanish publications. Seems better than selling her story to People! She’s loyal.

  15. Frida_K says:

    She done got him good, didn’t she?

    Bless her heart.

  16. Becki says:

    I had my twins first & then my son when my girls were just about to turn 2. It is ROUGH!! I wish her the best!! She looks FABULOUS for being pregnant with twins, her face isn’t even fat!!! I looked like H-E-L-L when I got into the third trimester, seriously, I was HUGE! Most twins come early, I wonder if hers will as well.

  17. Janie says:

    Question.. Did she get to keep the castle?

  18. OriginallyBlue says:

    I love looking at their pictures together. He’s all serious and cool and she is posing her ass off, like she is the star. She clearly has never met a camera she didn’t like.

  19. Prim says:

    As a mum of twins I wish her well with everything. Carrying two because it’s brutal on the body, the birth, for obvious reasons and the first year, because it’s mind numbingly exhausting. After that it’s the most wonderful thing and I hope it brings them a lot of joy.

  20. D'Oh! says:

    Could someone explain why this woman is regarded so unfavorably? I guess I’ve been out of the loop because I don’t remember ever seeing anything about her other than the relationship with Brody.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I was wondering the same thing. I know nothing about her, so these comments seem really mean to me, especially aimed at a pregnant woman, insinuating that she intentionally got pregnant to “trap” this guy. Wow. Did she kill somebody?

    • Gine says:

      Oh, she’s a fame whore harpy who fooled poor, innocent Chris into marrying her, or something. Just the usual, people assuming their celebrity crush is an angel and his significant other is a bitch even though they don’t actually know anything about what either of these people are really like or how their relationship works.

    • heidi says:

      she took Chris off the market is all I can come up with ; ))

    • Chickie Baby says:

      Great question! She doesn’t strike me as anything but a really pretty woman who has a super-hunky hubby and a great life with her family. (And she’s really stunning when she smiles!)

      All the haters out there should probably just not say anything tacky about her. If they don’t like her, what good does it do to criticize and pass judgement? If HER life has no direct impact on YOURS, then what the heck difference does it make to you what she does? If you can’t say anything nice, then leave it alone and just move along.

      • BendyWindy says:

        The entire premise of this site is nit picking the lives of celebrities. It’s what we do here. It’s ridiculous to try to take people to task for commenting on a “celeb” when that’s the whole reason this site exists.

        Something about this lady rubs me the wrong way, and I think Chris Hemsworth is overrated and not that attractive, so I’m far from jealous of his wife. Meh.

    • Jen says:

      She has a loooooooong history of dating men who are about to be famous, then dumping them for men who are higher up.

      And it really has nothing to do with jealousy, because I find nothing interesting or attractive about Chris Hemsworth.

    • Mela says:

      Just click her tag and look at past articles and comments. She’s been on this track for a very long time, jumping from successful man to the next for fame. Definitely check out how “in love” she and Adrien Brody looked at their castle photoshoot.

  21. Marianne says:

    I think its gonna be 2 girls.

  22. kibbles says:

    I love these comments! I usually skip posts about Elsa Pataky because I honestly have no idea who she is. I’ve never seen her movies and I only see her name on gossip sites. I finally decided to go through the Elsa Pataky archives and my, my…she should be teaching classes at university on gold digging and trapping the man you want! I wish I had even a tenth of her powers to get any man I want. I’ll give her major props. I would love to have her super powers. She’s pretty but from the comments I’ve read, she’s had a lot of plastic surgery. Well, just like Julie Chen, it worked in her favour. No way she would have gotten these rich and successful men to buy her a castle and marry her if she had looked like her old self.

  23. aquarius64 says:

    I think the slow clap is premature. It looks likes Elsa is working her way up the Hollywood social ladder (please explain why Gwyneth Paltrow is called GOOP). That Mother Mafia of Hollywood are accomplished women in their right (awards, business, etc.) That group may be fully aware of the stories about Elsa (porn past, up-trady dating, Adren Brody, and marriage) and may think she’s trash. Gwyneth could only be civil to Elsa because of Chis. Be honest, do you think Gwyneth would talk to Elsa if she wasn’t Mrs. Chris Hemsworth? If there were a divorce Gwyneth and company would have nothing to do with Elsa. Right now, Elsa is on the outside looking in despite her marriage. Until she is hanging out with these ladies outside an industry event, she’s an C/D list actress looking for a come up.

    Sorry the look on Chris’ face says the bloom is off the rose. Probably not keen about his wife’s reputation.

  24. Hiddles ex ThunderGod says:

    I think everything was particularly evident when they bought a new and bigger house.. what for if they didn’t want a brood of children?
    I feel sad to say this again, but IMHO Chris is headed Brendan Fraser’s path.. No career and no family after 15 years. That happens when you marry a gold-digger, sorry!

  25. GIRLFACE says:

    Wow I didn’t see all her plastic surgery before! Crazy. I think Chris is a little hotter than Brendan Fraiser hopefully that does something. But I never thought about him before, he did silently disappear.

  26. Penny says:

    Am I the only person who doesn’t think Chris has some amazing career ahead of him? He’s an average actor, he’s attractive but in a completely generic way, his personality is lacking…He’s got Thor, but he’s no RDJ, the character is the draw-card not him, he’s extremely replaceable. He was completely outshone by Hiddlestone in the Thor films, outshone by Bruhl in Rush…he’s not even one of those ‘just ok’ actors who steals the film with his screen presence.

    Other than the Avengers sequel, his upcoming projects aren’t particularly exciting (he’s going to be terribly outshone by Cillian Murphy and Ben Whishaw in the Ron Howard film) and he’s not even attempting to step out of his comfort zone. If he wants to get away from Thor, now would be the time to do a comedy, or a dialogue heavy drama, but instead he’s doing a Snow White sequel? I don’t think he’s exactly getting first look at scripts. I mean his career is fine, but people here talk like he’s just a few years away from being Hollywood Royalty, when really he hasn’t even got past the point where he could just fade away quietly after a few box office duds. I don’t get the hype at all. I’d much rather be Hiddlestone or Bruhl right now, those guys may never reach Pitt or Clooney levels of fame, but they’ll be doing interesting, varied work for as long as they want to. Chris could still end up making straight to DVD action movies forever if he makes a couple of average choices.

  27. Amy says:

    She’s in her third trimester with twins and she’s that small? Holy cow she’s in good shape. Lord help them when they have three under three at home, tho.

  28. Nene says:

    Oh man,this dude isn’t just a hunk but a ‘football’ stud.
    I swear at this pace he is gonna give Cristiano Ronaldo the ‘King of braces and hatricks’ a good run for his money.
    Anyway,I really have to say this,in as much as Elsa is maligned for whatever reasons,that doesn’t negate the fact that she sure looks good preggie.
    Chris looks miserable not at all like his usual self- still dieting for the movie role?
    Anyway,I can’t wait for him to bulk up once he starts shooting Avengers.

    Felicidades to them on the twins!

  29. Eugenia says:

    Chris has a little famewhore in him too. Wasn’t he on Dancing with the Stars Australia?

    I think he clearly draws the line at somethings like agreeing to have his photo in the wedding pics for Hola but he isn’t above playing the game to some extent. I think he is fully aware of who and what he married. And if he wasn’t, then he is a fool and deserves the fleecing he is most likely to get when it all comes off the rails.

    A part of me always found something about their union a bit fishy, but damned if I can put my finger on what their deal is, if any. There were introduced via a dialect coach and married less than a year later. Sounds like a whirlwind romance but he can’t recall the date he got married? Yet I remember seeing a youtube video of them in a hotel lobby presumably before their marriage and unaware they were being filmed and it looked a bit meh, no sparks. Like 2 acquaintances. Then I see photos of them hugged up, his dog tag with her name and # on them and I think they are cute and in love. So confusing.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      I think they are quite similar, to be honest. Chris came out of the blue in Thor and after two years he states he can take some time off to focus on his family life (he is that famous and rich already? Doh!), this really sounds quite pretentious.

      I don’t know if it is his behaviour or his wife, something is definitively off about him. I don’t even find him sexy, because it seems like he has no personality.

      I think my crush for Chris was shortlived… Bye bye Hemsworth…

    • V says:

      Don’t you remember the early stories about him? He was ready to go home as he was that lonely and he wasn’t doing so well in the business. I think that’s why she got her hooks into him so fast and furiously. He’s that kind of guy.

    I dont understand why Elsa gets this much flack for giving interviews about her private life. I mean so does other women in Hollywood – Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz etc. They all have done and still do give interviews after interviews about their personal lives, pregnancies, births, engagements, show business friendships, beauty advice etc -why arent they called famehungry celebs?

    • aquarius64 says:

      Elsa is a D list actress looking for a come up.

    • aquarius64 says:

      @thundergoddess – the PR optics would be very bad if Chris left Elsa while pregnant with twins, even if there is just cause. It could also be the reason for the mean-mugging. He may realize she will destroy him in divorce court and the court of public opinion if he leaves, as much as she courts the press.

      • Hiddles forever says:

        My guess is that his PR team will never allow him to leave Elsa. Because they are doing their best to sell Hemsworth as the family man (maybe it is a Thor strategy, as opposed to Loki/Hiddleston being the bad one). To be honest, is Hemsworth sexy? Handsome yes, sexy..not that much.

    • Penny says:

      Maybe because those women all have successful careers and are extremely famous in their own right, and they talk about this stuff when they’re promoting their work. Whereas Elsa is only getting to do interviews because she married a guy who’s not half as famous as any of the women you mention, and all she’s promoting is her private life. She’s not using a few anecdotes from her personal life to help sell a film or a book or whatever, she’s just promoting herself as the wife of a guy who was lucky enough to land a Marvel franchise. She has good hustle, but it’s all just a bit retrograde really.

      • Eugenia says:

        Hiddles forever, I so agree with you that Chris is handsome, not sexy. I have been trying to put my finger on why Chris doesn’t melt my Häagen-Dazs, and now I realize that is why. But I do enjoy looking at pics of him and reading the Remora comments. So fun.

        I don’t know if there is trouble in paradise but Chris has seemed rather somber of late. His eyes don’t see as twinkly. I thought at first maybe it was because he was hungry from his 500-600 cal diet, but it appears that movie already wrapped. Hmm…

        He is practically a guest star in his own Thor franchise. Can’t say I stan for Hiddles though either. Would be interesting to see how the franchise fairs with Loki, not that I hope it comes to that.

      • Hiddles forever says:

        I thought, at some point, that Loki was going out of the picture. I read on wiki he disappears for a while from the comics too.

        My main question could be:
        Is Hemsworth able to carry a Thor movie on his shoulders without Hiddleston? Because apart from the ability used to manage a hammer, Hemsworth in Thor seems not to have any goal or aim..or personality.

        I do enjoy to read the Remora thread, because it is a little like reading the Kardashian threads.. It is just gossip. Tacky is not famous or talented in her own right and it is quite curious all her PR manouvres to be in the picture.
        I don’t know how any of her fans can fall for the act “I am this holy mother and wife, I changed!”….

        Concerning Hemsworth… Goodness gracious, is that all the happiness he can convey to public? Two premieres, one red carpet and he seems like he has a dead body at his feet all time. Cheer up Chris. You reap what you sow.

    • BendyWindy says:

      All the people you just listed are famous actresses who have been in the business for decades and get acclaim for their own work, rather than being hangers-on who are only known for whom they’ve married. AND, lots of people badmouth Aniston, Roberts and Diaz.

  31. Talie says:

    She’s likes one of those Basketball Wives — got to respect the hustle.

  32. aquarius64 says:

    Twin announcement on YouTube:


    Chris does the bellycup on the red carpet, but the shot in the back of the limo – he wants to get out of there; she’s cheesing for the cameras.

  33. talullah rex says:

    I am Spanish and I remember several things about her: 1. Apparently she studied economy in one of Spain top universities (Icade) – I don’t know if she graduated though, and she was remembered by some colleages as stunning, brave and extremely goal-oriented. 2. She used to date a french actor and commedian who publicly mocked and humilliated her in public French TV, I remember pitying her; 3. I also pitied her when she appeared alone in her Hola wedding Reportage. I hope she has overcome her low self-steem issues and has a lot of happiness with her family. As we say in Spain, “the pain is in the sin”.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      People who aim for pity are usually not defined as having lowesteem issues.
      She is a gold digger, although not different from others in Hollywood of course. And might I add, I don’t think she is smart in a general way. Surely she is smarter than her husband.

  34. brincalhona says:

    I always wonder if these people who have so much surgery done – and deny it – think a) their children are ugly; b) that we can’t see the difference between their children’s features and their own; c) full stop.

  35. Vee says:

    Well, I don’t like her much, too many reasons to list at the moment, but he must love her, so that’s worth something. I just hate to see if she takes the sparkle from his eyes, or hurts him, (more like I would think of a brother or a son with someone who is a little, well let’s just say there is something about her….). Well, since he’s got her pregnant, I hope they have either two little boys, exactly like Chris, or one boy like Chris and one like Liam.
    I think she’s having at least one boy, but that’s my prediction because I’m hoping he gets at least one little boy out of the deal. Two would be awesome.

  36. Sal says:

    I can honestly say I don’t get the hate for Elsa nor people calling her a ‘social climber’.I’m obviously missing something. As someone who watched Chris on Home and Away where he first got into acting, I believe its actually the other way around. She seems like a nice, unassuming down-to-earth person and I wikki’d (wikkipedia’d?) her and as a person in tv, film and a Producer all before even meeting Chris, she seems to be the actual star and the accomplished one, he left HAA, went to LA and got lucky with a couple of films and lands a model, a Producer, film star and tv wife in Elsa. One wonders if he is using her vast connections and fame, as the Aussie newcomer to the scene. I can assure you that he was a nobody until he struck gold in LA. And I say this as someone who was a fan of him in HAA. Who is really using who/social climbing – I wonder.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      The fact she was famous in Spain doesn’t mean anything. The fact she is a social climber, neither, Hollywood is full of social climbers.
      To say that Elsa was more famous than Chris is a mistake though, because she never did anything relevant in USA. She is where she is now because she married a Marvel star, not because she was talented or beautiful or anything else.

      Anyway, she tried her ‘hand’ to various actors before Chris… Never heard of her before reading about Chris and I used to live in Europe, in a southern country. Her fame never went anywhere but Spain.

    • moot says:

      Uh no. In North America, Chris was definitely going someplace while EP was known as the one-time girlfriend of Adrien Brody whom he bought a castle for. She’s been running up her own press highlights long before Chris.

      Look at Chris’ face. Look at hers. Which one is looking more happy to be photographed? Who is leaning into whom?

  37. mimi says:

    never known her name before, and honestly when i did a bit of browsing, then some bikini’s pictures of Elsa, pop up.
    but, if she’s mature and has change the way her life in her youth, everyone will have the 2nd chance to be better or great.

    and she is very lucky girl to married Chris.

  38. Jazzy says:

    The fact that Elsa sold everything to Hola!… Well, that’s the only way she can give an update of her life. Spanish people (I am) couldn’t care less about Elsa Pataky, but I guess it’s what she has to do just in case she has to come back and work again.

    Also, I saw before a “If she had plastic surgery…” She HAD plastic surgery in the past (nose, boobs, cheeks, chin) so the Elsa right now is nothing compared to the old Elsa. You can Google pics of her while she was “acting” in Spanish tv series “Al Salir de Clase”.

    She is aware she’s got no talent, so she’s playing with her looks which is ok I guess. Chris is not the first one, Adrian Brody was there before, Olivier Martinez as well (Halle Berry’s), and a few Spanish/French celebs. There’s nothing wrong with that, but when you decide to go public with your relationships, people are going to give you their opinion.
    Penélope Cruz was kind of the same (it is here), but at least she’s talented.

    Not hate here, just don’t like her. Also, I’ve known some members of her family for quite a long time, and I know what I am talking about.

    She’s played her cards really well.

  39. aquarius64 says:

    I wonder if it bugs Chris that he is married to a woman that a lot of people apparently don’t respect?

  40. Jen34 says:

    I just googled her , and wow did she have work done. Eyes. Nose. Boobs. Maybe cheeks? She was cute before, though. I guess she didn’t think so .

    Hola magazine is kind of a joke, though. I lived in Spain for a few years and the magazine would do photo spreads on professional girlfriend types or just about anyone who could wear a bikini.

  41. moot says:

    Photo Assumption Chris Hemsworth’s face in all the photos with his wife: He’s slightly embarrassed she’s “trying” so hard when he doesn’t seem to give a damn about the carpet photos. Also, wondering if in his mind he’s thinking he should’ve spent as much time considering his options during the engagement as his brother did with Miley.
