Elsa Pataky covers Women’s Health, steps out with baby India Rose: cute?

This is for all of the people who love (to hate) Elsa Pataky, otherwise known as Chris Hemsworth’s wife and mother of their daughter India Rose. Elsa has – from what I can see – a supporting part in Fast & Furious 6. That’s not what I would consider a major role or a major career-maker, but that role taken with the fact that she’s Mrs. Hemsworth means that Elsa is somehow important enough to cover multiple international issues of Women’s Health Mag. I’m including an English and a Spanish cover version – both feature Elsa’s butt rather prominently. It helps that she’s got a really nice ass. Damn. Her body is pretty great, if truth be told. She looks athletic and healthy.

Elsa told Women’s Health: “Exercise is like an addiction. Once you’re in it, you feel like your body needs it.” She says that to stay in shape, she does strength training twice a week, and then yoga or Pilates three or four times a week and then some boxing too. Incidentally, Elsa recently commented on the Miley Cyrus-Liam Hemsworth situation too – despite wide reports that Elsa was and is anti-Miley, Elsa told E! News, “We don’t want to get too much into their personal life; we just want them to be happy.”

The paparazzi also managed to find Elsa, India Rose and Elsa’s mom in Brentwood yesterday. I know, how absolutely shocking! I’m surprised Chris wasn’t talked into a pap session too, after all Fast & Furious 6 isn’t going to promote itself. India is such a cutie but I really worry that her mom has posed her so obviously on the sidewalk. Hm.

    Ugh that picture of that baby on the sidewalk and then the dirt on her knees makes me cringe!

    • Monie says:

      Even the baby is like “Bitch, get me off this nasty sidewalk!

      • anne o'neame says:

        Sometimes squirmy babies want to crawl, not be held or restrained in a stroller. Elsa looks frazzled. I sympathize.

      • Egg dart says:

        Oh come on! There are babies all over the world that crawl on the ground and end up just fine. Not a big deal. It isn’t as if the baby is in a precarious situation. My mom had four kids, all close together in age. It was a miracle if not a single one of us was crawling in the ground getting dirty. And I turned out fine. I actually dig the relaxed parenting here. Baby is squirmy, place baby on ground to help assuage the squirm. Return baby to stroller a little extra dirty and happy. Everyone wins. No freaking out about germs and dirt. If anything it might help the baby’s immune system. Some first world standards are annoying.

      • Wow says:

        Let the BABY crawl on the disgusting germ invested street- most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Yeah it will strengthen her immune system on after she develops some illness.

      • xxx says:

        Yeah… well I’d say the rise in germ-squeamishness in the developed world has corresponded pretty nicely with the rise of crazy allergies and asthma in children. Also first children are statistically more likely to develop things like asthma for the precise reason that their parents tend to be more hysterical about germs and dust the first time round, the kids don’t develop a good immunity, and thus they develop an adverse reaction. Hopefully she wiped India’s hands off before she put them in her mouth, but other than that… yeesh. It’s a bit of dirt. Get over it and yourself.

    • RobN says:

      I love that she did that. A little dirt and muck never hurt anybody and I love that she isn’t pulling out some stupid anti-bacterial wipe every time the kid gets dirty.

      Unhappy kid wants to be put down to crawl around, let the kid crawl around.

      • Niki says:

        Robn -there’s letting a kid be a kid and get dirty and then theres letting your child crawl on a filthy sidewalk where there is spit and god knows what else

      • Itsa Reallyme says:

        I agree with you RobN. The baby is at a squirmy age. You can see her crying while she’s being held. She wants to get down. She won’t die from crawling on the sidewalk. I think it’s refreshing to see that her mother let her get dirty and be a kid!
        FWIW, I happen to be a very protective mother and a bit of a germaphobe and I really don’t have a problem with this situation.

    • Talie says:

      I thought the same… get that kid off that dirty sidewalk, Elsa! Stop looking in the camera!

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I have to agree. No way should that baby be crawling around on a filthy sidewalk. That is not the same as your baby playing on the floor in your house.

        Also, the baby’s hands are on the filthy sidewalk, & then they’re likely to wind up in the baby’s mouth. Sorry to bring that up, but babies do that.

      • wellsie says:

        umm… ya, let kids crawl on grass in the park, for sure. but a grimy sidewalk? gotta draw the line somewhere. just not something you see everyday…

    • Yeah says:

      Nice why to get a staph infection

      • Maggie says:

        A person would develope a staph infection in the hospital far easier than on the sidewalk!

      • RobN says:

        Because the newspapers are full of stories of babies getting staph infections from dirty sidewalks. It’s almost an epidemic.

      • Megan says:

        Why take the chance? An infection at that age can be fatal. her bare hands are on the ground Beside the fact that we all know its going directly in her mouth she could be cut by anything down there. It’s irresponsible ppl need common sense

      • Wendy says:

        While I don’t wash my kids in disinfectant I wouldn’t put them or allow them to crawl into or onto an unclean surface.

        I think twice about letting my kids do certain things now. My two year old loved to go barefoot in the backyard and did get an infection which had her in the hospital for 3 days, it my not be an ” epidemic” but it does happen.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      … Isn’t that what vaccinations do as well? Get a little sick, immune system gets ‘stronger’. Why are you more shock and appalled that a child is crawling on the ground when people inject worse shit into their children annually?

      • bridget says:

        This sounds like an awful lot of people with no children chiming in. Its not rocket science. Kids don’t like to be contained. So what if she gets a little dirty, it’s probably not the first time and it’s definitely not going to be the last. If the sidewalk is the grossest thing she comes into contact with then they’re lucky indeed.

      • Tina says:

        Really the baby squirms she wants to get down, so what. If you can’t control a toddler what are I going to do when they become older. Push aside common sense and appropriate behavior so the child won’t make a fuss. The ppl saying this will be the ones being stared at when their kid throws them self on the floor with a temper tantrum

      • Really says:

        Yeah babies get exposed to dirt by putting things in their mouth and regular contact with people, and thats all the exposure they need.

        How anyone can make excuses for why its ok to put a child on a disgusting sidewalk is absurd. And the whole it’s ok she will build up her immune system sounds like an excuse for lazy parenting

    • Lulu.T.O. says:

      Exposure to dirt of any kind is very good for babies. The need to develop immunity, and that is an excellent way to do it. The fact.that babies touch everything and then put their hands in their mouths serves an important function.

    • Lex says:

      People always go a little nuts about the ground in America – like omg don’t walk anywhere without shoes on…
      What is on the ground in America?

      In Australia I am often barefoot!

  2. Anna says:

    How VERY interesting…now that it’s time for her to promote her own project, the paps know exactly where to find her showing off the baby even though she’s still C-list at best! And no Chris around to steal the attention, either. But I bet it’s all a happy coincidence, non?

    • marie says:

      I can’t stand this chick..

      • V4Real says:

        There is nothing appealing about her; her looks are average at most.

        Does anyone actually believe that the paps were just waiting for her to make a move so they could get shots of her? She has them on speed dial as well as payroll.

      • Anna says:


        I will be the one and only simultaneous Elsa h@ter/Elsa body admirer I guess 🙂

        I just got back from 2 weeks in the US where I ate and drank an obscene amount of …well, everything delicious. And pretty much didnt do anything else (except go see Iron Man and 2 Broadway musicals). Hello 10 lbs!

        That is to make a point that at least her body is a product of amazing discipline, in terms of nutrition and fitness. So I admire (and oh so envy) that.

      • V4Real says:

        @Anna I hope you had an amazing time in NY; I’m assuming that you were here because you mentioned Broadyway Shows. I know other states have shows as well but not quite like NY.

        Don’t get me wrong her body is ok but it doesn’t scream amazing to me. As much as I can’t stand Goop; I also think her body is ok. I just give a side-eye to these celebrities such as the two just mentioned who loves to talk about how they keep in shape and how hard it is to maintain their body image.
        It’s not hard at all when you can afford nutritionist, persoanl trainers as well as nannies, plus more time on your hands than the normal everyday working mom.

        Did you like IM3; did you catch that refereence to Goop with the Gluten free waffles? 🙂

  3. ShakenNotStirred says:

    Why does she have the baby on the ground?

    • Mia 4S says:

      Better shot for the pappazzi obviously. She’s using her child to promote her small role in a hit movie…from Universal Studios…which needs to keep Hemsworth happy to do a sequel to that awful Snow White movie. See? Oh no I’m sure she got the part on her own merits… 😉

  4. Jenna says:

    Yes, she has a nice body. And even a cute face (thank you plastic surgery, can I have your surgeon’s name please) but how in the HELL does her minor role in FF6 get her a magazine cover? o_O

    • Anna says:

      It doesnt. If you searched ‘Chris Hemsworth’ under Google News a couple of days ago, you got Perez Hilton’s link to the Women’s Health profile. The ‘candids’ with the baby appeared on The Daily Mail as “Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky attempts to teach their daughter …” etc. Notice a pattern?

    • Mia 4S says:

      See my post above; Universal Studios is keeping Hemsworth happy. Warner Brothers gave Tom Hardy’s (ex?) fiancé a role in one of the Tom Cruise movies. A small service to their male leads to keep the little woman quiet and happy. It’s common…and kind of pathetic.

      • Anna says:

        My only counter to that delicious theory is that Remora got the Fast Furious franchise before Chris became a ‘thing.’ Siiiiiiiigh….. But she IS getting a bigger story in this FF6, when she could have been completely written out. So I will choose to think that at least that part is a more recent development and is a result of the Universal’s deal with Chris.

      • Mia 4S says:

        LOL, well there you go! Considering I had no clue who she was until recently I guess the pimping of her family to the paps was worth it! I’ve come up with a pretty hard and fast rule that if the only reason I know who you are is through pimping your children and relationships to magazines, you are lacking in talent, charisma, and are not worth my time. Goes for men and women.

        The roles and publicity for the wives/girlfriends thing definitely is true though. I started watching for it when someone pointed it out for me. You will see vice versa sometimes but fewer female stars are considered that valuable.

  5. Anna says:

    Also, I watched The Fast Five for the first time ever this weekend (the only one of those movies for that matter; I do NOT like cars but my BFF races so…I got sucked in) and OMG I was SO full of glee at how horrible an actress she is! I didnt want to talk sh!t about her acting before bc I’ve never watched her in anything, save for a few YouTube clips. But now – total vindication of snark!!!

  6. LaLa2 says:

    The baby looks just like Chris.

  7. Carri says:

    Well, after all the negative comments…I am going to follow up with a nice one. This woman is gorgeous! Her body is fantastic, looks strong and healthy.
    As for the baby on the sidewalk…whatever! You cannot keep them in a bubble. Babies move and want to move. Those dirty knees could be from the park for all we know. I am sure she cleaned her hands after.
    Women should support other women!! Not criticize all the time!!

    • Jennifer says:


      • CariBean says:


        She’s very pretty and the baby will be fine.

        Worry about your own back yard, holier-than-thou people.

    • Anna says:

      Women (and men) should support other women (and men) making good decisions. Endorsement that completely disregards merit and comes purely on the basis of gender (or race, or sexual orientation) only does disservice to the group you think you’re ‘supporting.’

      That said, I dont know much about parenting, but the whole thing just looks gross. Crawling around on the sidewalk looks – and has much worse connotations – than playing around on the lawn or a beach. There’s a reason we – children AND adults – wear shoes on the former, and usually not the latter two.

      By the way my views on the two issues above nothing to do with Pataky personally.

      But in this particular instance, this is a person who gets papped on purpose, inviting us to look, to judge, to comment. So here we are.

      • OhDear says:

        +1. I don’t have strong feelings about her, either, but supporting does not mean enabling.

      • Anna says:


        Ok, fine, but then there’s a question of context. You can support a friend dealing with a drug problem without saying drugs are ok, or you can support the troops while opposing the war they’re fighting in. But what exactly is her hardship here? That she’s being criticized for the way she chose to show off her [only famous bc of dad] baby in a pre-arranged paparazzi session? Wow, she REALLY needs our support.

    • Mia 4S says:

      @Carri, so women should support other women in carefully displaying their babies more clearly for the paparazzi to pimp their small roles and overinflated egos? Yeah….no

    • jaye says:

      I don’t know much about her aside from the fact that she used to date Adrien Brody and now she’s married to that hot piece Chris Hemsworth (upgrade!) but I do think she is a very pretty woman. Now, the baby on the sidewalk? I wouldn’t, but I’m a bit OCD about germs. And to the people saying that it’s not a big deal, I pose this question: would you let your baby eat a piece of food off that same sidewalk?

      • bridget says:

        You would not believe the things you see kids eat. So often with the Littles it’s less a question of ‘let’ and more a question of what you turn around and find them doing. It really changes how stringent you can be about stuff when you catch your kid eating goodness knows what from the folds of his car seat, or stuffing a handful of dog food into his mouth.

  8. manuela says:

    i cant and never can stand her
    no matter what she does

    • Jens says:

      Because you know that is exactly what she is doing? Pimping her baby. So the women can never take her child out, because they may get photographed, and she is then “pimping her small role”
      Get a life!!

      • Anna says:

        It’s because uber-A-listers like Brad&Angelina and Ben&Jen get photographed less with (or without) their kids than a barely C-list celebrity who has to nearly always be identified as someone else’s wife. Magical coincidence?

      • Mia 4S says:

        Oh for heaven’s sake of course you can take your baby out but look (really look) at the photos, think about the timing and the circumstances. You seriously can’t see it? Plus the site is CeleBITCHY not CeleKNEEPADS. I thought the idea was that people on this site could see through these kind of setups?

        I wouldn’t care either way about this woman (I can take or leave Hemsworth) but I need to get away from celebrity gossip because the obviousness of it is getting insulting.

  9. David99 says:

    Great bod!

  10. neelyo says:

    I clicked on this because I didn’t know who the hell she was and I wanted to find out. Sounds like she’s a Real Housewife who got lucky.

  11. Jennifer says:

    She’s beautiful, I just hate her haircut.

  12. don't kill me i'm french says:

    i can’t dislike her(she has a reputation to be only interested by famous guys)because i met her several times wen she dated Michael Youn (a popular french actor)and she was really nice with me

  13. Fai says:

    Question: Is her baby safely secured in the stroller?
    Also, I have no issue with letting babies go on the ground but seeing the car (yes, it looks parked, nonetheless) in the background implies that its a street; which would be unsafe, non?

    • JM says:

      My thoughts exactly – it doesn’t look like the baby has a five-point harness on which is pretty standard for a stroller – otherwise she could just slide down and out…

  14. serena says:

    Poor baby.. still I have to admit Elsa has a pretty damn hot body, sigh.

  15. s says:

    her body is crazy. I think she’s gorgeous.

  16. Agitation says:

    Who the hell is this besides the woman who stole my husband and why should I care?

  17. Reece says:

    Wait. She’s actually in a movie? What?

  18. megsie says:

    Her body is insane. Not too muscular, not too skinny, just right. She’s obviously committed to a heathy physique instead of the usual starved size 0 most of Hollywood worships. I can’t help but applaud that.

    As for the rest of it, while she may be greedy for fame, she is by all accounts I’ve yet read a genuinely sweet and friendly woman. So no criticism from me. If Chris is happy, God bless them.

  19. Alexis says:

    I don’t know enough about her to dislike her. All I know is that she’s beautiful. I even like her haircut.

  20. OhDear says:

    She looks like a cross between Princess (?) Diana and Ellen Degeneres. It’s probably the hair.

    Has she ever been papped on her own or has it always been with whoever she was/is in a relationship?

  21. madpoe says:

    Chris’ daughter looks happier in his arms.

  22. j.eyre says:

    I feel for her in those pap shots. She probably did set them up herself and little India was teething or having an off day and they didn’t turn out quite so well. She looks like all of us when our kid acted like that and that tugs at my heart-strings.

    Fortunately, since my heart strings are about as black and shriveled as my cold, dead heart – I can look at the last photo and hope she is jumping into the Pacific to find another shark to feed off of.

    • Marty says:

      I agree, but the SIDEWALK?! Getting passed how dirty it is, what about the gravel? Babies hands are softer and more delicate than ours, India could have cut her hands.

      Ok, that’s out of my system. Hi Miss J! Hope all is well with you my dear.

    • hoya_chick says:

      Lol! You are so funny! Where’s Eve? Has she given up the cause? Because I’m a convert solely on her dedicated posting on all things awful about tacky pataky. I did see her in the last Fast and Furious movie when it came out 2 years ago (I didn’t know who she was at the time she hadn’t gotten with Chris yet) and she was so terrible! And that movie is not about acting, so if you are the worst of all the bad acting that says something.

      Her ass looks great on the cover though!

    • j.eyre says:

      I hear you Marty – but I would let my kids suck on a table leg if it kept them quiet. I can b!tch about a lot of things but I may not throw any stones when it comes to mothering. And trust me, this breaks my heart because I am in a mood and could use to open up on some raw snark today and my darling Remora won’t even let me do that because she looks like she is ready to cry herself and I have just been there so many times.

      But since my mood has not improved and I simply must be bitchy about one thing (oh, who am I kidding); I distinctly remember looking at the NY shots and being surprised at how flat her tucas looked. So she does have a great butt in these shots – but is it hers? I am honestly asking.

      • Marty says:

        In real life I think it’s okay, but yes on the flatter side. But this is a cover and ofcourse they would use Photoshop. I think she has a cute butt for her size and body type, it’s just not something that I am “wowed” out like say her eyes. I know, I know, I must be feeling generous today.

  23. Dommy Dearest says:

    Um. What ass? She has the Hollywood standard of a great ass… There is nothing there. I’m not all for the Kardashian ass AT ALL. Jessica Biel, now THAT is an ass. Majority of these Hollywood actresses all have nothing going on back there, Elsa for sure falls into that category.

    Can we have Biel ass? Please. I don’t care how clingy or annoying she is, her ass deserves to be on a magazine versus the woman who played a cop in Fast Five and had all of five lines.

  24. Isa says:

    Is that her real butt? I mean of course it’s photoshopped but I just didn’t expect it to be so nice.

  25. Maggie says:

    Wow! This woman is gorgeous.

  26. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Is she the new Blake Lively? Holy crap this girl seems to make even the most sane commenters go batshit.

    Anyway, I know nothing about her and truthfully, I care nothing about her but now that I know how crazy everyone gets over this chick I’ll be clicking on future links. Pure entertainment.
    Bonus points for the predictable Mommy Police coming out to add on some extra judginess for good measure. Overall, an excellent post.

  27. Luxe says:

    I had no idea who she was before she married Chris, but that baby is seriously cute. I hate seeing babies on the pavement (germs), but she’s around walking age, so she’s probably resistant to the stroller and being held. I’m pretty sure she got cleaned up afterwards. The little dirt patches on her knees are too cute. My friend’s baby is the same way: trying to walk and he will do his best to get down.

    Don’t know anything about her (only that she’s dated high profile actors and people), never watched a movie, so I’m just here to see Lil India. I do look forward to catching up on the gossip about her 😀

  28. Relli says:

    Hmmm needs more cheetah print!

  29. Viv says:

    Ha! Ha! I came here for the comments.

    Even the baby doesn’t seem to care for her. I wonder if India’s always with the nanny or Daddy, and why she doesn’t seem too comfortable with Mom, except, of course, for those photo shoots to keep Mommy in her glory of wannabe fame.

    Not sure why Pataky would put the baby down on such a filthy sidewalk. ???

  30. I Choose Me says:

    Great body and I think she’s so pretty. That blond hairdo is really working for her. Too bad her personality (as reported) is not nearly as appealing.

  31. Audrey says:

    I think we have the same brand stroller. Except I have the 3 wheel version. It’s so lovely (quinny buzz)

    She’s such s famewhore though :/

  32. megsie says:

    “even the baby doesn’t like her”?? 😀 oh, c’mon now. Notice India’s pink splotchy cheeks? Poor baby is teething.

  33. Duh says:

    A baby this age should be strapped into a stroller. Doesn’t look like she is from the pictures.

    This is the same woman who came barreling down a slide from a Yacht into water when she was heavily pregnant. I’m just saying…

    BTW, Pataky has had so much plastic surgery. I wonder if the butt is even real as she has other implants. If it is real and it is actually from exercising, and it’s not photo-shopped, she looks great.

  34. Miss M says:

    Go, little India. Show your mom you are not sold for photo ops, ha! 🙂

  35. Jane says:

    Am I the only one who notices that when her gorgeous hubby holds the baby, she (the baby) is totally peaceful and happy, and when the mum holds her we get this? Makes you wonder…….

    • EscapedConvent says:

      No, you’re not the only one who noticed this! Of course, one never knows when a baby is going to get crabby & become a wiggle-worm, but she does look happy in the pics with her dad holding her!

      In the pic where she’s in her stroller, look at her little face! She looks just like her dad.

  36. truthful says:

    I don’t have kids but I get so flustered when they want to b put down but they can’t walk and they are wiggly.

    she is at that stage, look how she is holding on in her stroller, she’s ready to make a run for it, LOL CUTE!

    her mom is pretty and grandma is nice looking also with a cute lil outfit on.

    her daddy is a sex god

  37. amilu says:

    I am SO jealous of her body — especially in that last photo. I shudder to think about what my body would look like in mid-leap!
