Chris Hemsworth & Elsa Pataky look thin, not pregnant in the Canary Islands


Elsa Pataky has been spotted!!! YAY. I’m telling you, I missed her during the Thor 2 promotional tour. She wasn’t seen at all. No red carpets, no clinging, no red carpet kissy-faces, no look-at-me theatrics. A red carpet without Elsa is like a red carpet without soul. Anyway, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa (and their daughter India) were spotted in the Canary Islands this weekend. According to Fame/Flynet, Chris and Elsa were seen at their hotel and then they went out to dinner with some “family members”.

Chris is in the Canary Islands to film In the Heart of the Sea, the apparently true story of the events that inspired Moby Dick. That’s the film that has Chris consuming only 500 to 600 calories a day to look like a starving sailor in the 19th century. He looks thinner, but it’s not a dramatic slimdown, at least not that I can tell. I agreed with many commenters – I don’t know why they didn’t just hire an already-slim actor to play this character.

As for Elsa… my theory about her absence being indicative of a pregnancy has kind of flown out the window. While she’s not wearing skin-tight clothes which definitively prove the absence or presence of a baby bump, she just doesn’t look pregnant to me in these photos. She looks the same. So why was she in hiding for the past few months? Is it possible that she’s made the decision to (GASP) tone it down? Please don’t, Elsa. I enjoy you! I want to see more of you! You bring me joy!

    The events that inspired Moby Dick? So this will be the most boring 3-hour movie of all time, yes?

  2. T.fanty says:

    Really? I think she looks massively preggo. Her boobs are huge.

    And, Miss Jane: I would rather CHemboy do a family dinner in his Moby Dick outfit than those sweaty gym shorts. What is wrong with your boy? And bonus eeeew for working out without socks.

    That said, he looks good with less bulk.

    • KatieKat says:

      Agreed. I’m not certain on how massively, but I do see preggo.

    • Anna says:

      She looks pregnant to me too, but in last week’s interview Chris said that Elsa has been working on a project in Hawaii for the last several weeks (thus no premieres), and India was with her.

      • LadySlippers says:


        A baggy top & skirt leave speculation WIDE OPEN. Because how she’s dressing isn’t putting the pregnancy rumours to bed. There are plenty of beach appropriate outfits that doesn’t have people think “Are you or aren’t you?” even if you’re not famous.

    • Tessa says:

      Me too. Huge boobs, no obvious waist in any of the shots, absent from her husbands events lately… I say pregnant.

    • ag-UK says:

      +1 yes and what is with the Flash Dance (oh what a feeling) top/dress off the shoulder..

    • j.eyre says:

      Uhm, I don’t know what you are talking about. I don’t see, nor have I ever seen, CHemboy in an all black workout outfit and coordinated shoes with no socks. It simply doesn’t exist because if he were walking to dinner like that it is inappropriate and frat boyish and if he had just finished or was about to workout – he would have socks on.

      And had I seen something like that, I am sure there would be a perfectly good reason for that… like he’s pregnant.

      • Anna says:

        I bet there are ankle socks. You can open your eyes and exhale.

      • V4Real says:

        Laughing at the possibility of Ankle socks. I don’t know if that makes it better or worse.
        In his first pic for a brief moment I thought I was looking at Liam.

      • T.fanty says:


        I’m not sure if ankle socks are helping here. Especially as they would likely be sporty ones, complete with neon racing stripes.

        You see, this is where being a CurlyFu-lovah becomes an advantage. As a Cumberbitch, I am well-trained to embrace a man’s sartorial ineptitude and see past – nay, joyfully embrace – the tragedy of an inappropriate outfit. I would see this and weep with joy that it’s all the same shade of black.

      • Anna says:

        Fanty et al –

        the dude is clearly coming straight from the gym. cut him some slack. plus, i’m surprised he’s even able to still get dressed at all, what with 500 cal/d diet.

      • j.eyre says:

        Yes, but Anna darling, that is another problem – he walks out of the gym and into a dinner with his family? Someone is paying money to eat there – they don’t want a gym rat beside them, regardless of his bedroom eyes. Now I have forgiven the Greater Hemsworth for many, many things – I do not give passes on fashion. You can be dressed ridiculously but not inappropriately.

        However, I did offer up last night that perhaps, since he is on his diet, he is not actually going to eat with them but remain outside the window and run in place as Remora indulges in her pregnancy cravings.

      • Anna says:

        How do we even know this was his dinner outfit? Maybe he popped in to change on the way!

        Also, 2nd baby? I might cry. Not happy tears.

      • j.eyre says:

        I know, darling, I know. That is why he is in Time-Out right now – for getting his wife pregnant AND that outfit.

        But we did prepare for this… and they do make beautiful babies. Plus, it means I won’t have to bear him any.

        ETA – Fanty thinks I am rationalizing but I said I did not see any shots of him at that dinner, he may just have been seeing them off.

      • Marty says:

        To be fair it’s simply some bad reporting. He’s actually leaving his hotel to get in the passenger’s side of a car. Seriously doubt he was going to dinner since his Dad and Remora weren’t with him. Or maybe that’s his parent’s hotel and he’s going back to his own?

      • j.eyre says:

        Yay Marty! I knew Marty would have the answer. And now, he may come out of the corner.

        Whew – I swear the Time-Out was killing me.

    • Miss M says:

      T.Fanty: I agree! When I saw the photos, I said: Pregnant!
      Boobs, face, glow, loose clothes (check!)…

      • Marty says:

        Really Miss M? I don’t see glow, I was thinking she looks kinda rough, like maybe morning sickness and lathargic.

      • Miss M says:

        @Marty: you’re right. She does look like she is going through morning sickness, but I still see the glow. I guess it’s because I find her stunning. OH well…

    • Mrs Tiggywinkle says:

      ITA, totally preggo.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      Eh, I don’t think so. Boobs look bigger than they are due to the strap in between them.

      Sorry. Do not want. She’s a leeeeeeeeeeech.

    • The Wizz says:

      Yep I vote preggo here

  3. Jackson says:

    She could be hiding a toddler under that sweater.

  4. blue marie says:

    Gotta tell ya, I didn’t really miss her.

  5. Liv says:

    Maybe she’s just a few weeks along and had morning sickness, because there’s no way that she missed the press tour otherwise!

  6. Denise says:

    I don’t see how these photos say ‘not pregnant’!

    Why do these celebs always have to have a nanny carrying their children when they’re right there? I don’t understand this, I would be so uncomfortable with someone else carrying around my daughter as I walked beside them. That’s all part of bonding with your child and spending time with them. It’s not a chore you pawn off on hired help!

  7. Marty says:

    What’s strange is that in the full set of these pics they actually aren’t together. He’s out with his daughter and parents at night, the photos above were taken during the day. Her boobs do look bigger though…

    Chris said ALL the men on the film are doing the diet. Speaking of no pics of Cillian Murphey on set with Chris? He looks so good in period clothing.

  8. Anna says:

    Since it says they went to dinner with the family , it could be a family member.

  9. eliza says:

    Nice purse strap across the boob to fuel speculation.

  10. Simmie says:

    That sweater is screaming preggers.

    There’s something about Chris that gives off a charismatic vibe although I don’t think any of his performances have lived up to the 5 minutes of Star Trek he was in. I’ll keep hoping!

  11. Kiki says:

    I think she looks like she could be hiding a pregnancy under that sweater. Granted, I’m biased because I don’t have a very high opinion of her, but I can’t believe she’d miss the opportunity to show herself off unless she had a veeeery good reason not to.

    Maybe she’s jealous that everyone prefers Tom Hiddleston/Loki to Chris/Thor?

  12. MAM says:

    That woman carrying the baby seems like Chris´s mother

  13. Violeta says:

    Ah oops I was hoping to see pics of Cillian Murphy as well, there are pics of him with Hemsworth on the set… Oh well…

  14. Patricia says:

    Maybe she is preggo, maybe she miscarried (hopefully not) a pregnancy, who knows? I am only about 6 weeks pregnant and already my tummy is bloating out, I feel like I have to hide it until I am ready to tell everyone. Maybe that’s the case – she is showing early so keeping a low profile until she is ready to announce. Total speculation and projection here lol.

    Chris’ face has really thinned out, I likey!!

  15. GeeMoney says:

    Elsa does look pregnant… with that said, that outfit is like, yeesh.

    Chris’s hair looks all kinds of messy here, but my co-worker, when she saw the pics, she said “Whatever! I’d still run my hands through it.”

  16. P.J. says:

    Idk…That big baggy (and super comfy looking!) sweater could easily cover up the sort of awkward, bloaty-looking early stages of pregnancy. (But honestly, would any of us seriously care if she were pregnant again?)

    Besides which, Elsa carried super tiny when she was pregnant with India. And does anyone else remember the pictures of her 5 days post-partum rocking skin tight pants and an equally tight t-shirt with a COMPLETELY FLAT STOMACH?? It was insane! If I hadn’t seen the so-called “controversial” bikini/water slide pics of her when she was about 6 months along (the ones on vacay with Matt Damon & his wife), I would have majorly doubted that she was ever even actually pregnant :)

    • LadySlippers says:

      Every pregnancy is different. And you’ll hear that ad nauseum with your second one too… lol

      I filled out immediately with my son and couldn’t wear normal clothes even before I found out I was pregnant. Now with my daughter, I dropped a ton of weight and wore normal clothes until about 5 months (but waddled almost immediately). So what one pregnancy is like, it can’t always be a benchmark for others…

    • lunchcoma says:

      It’s actually pretty common for a second pregnancy to show earlier than a first one.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Yep. Not personal experience but three of my friends found that and were shocked at how early they showed on their second.

        I think if this was someone else, I wouldn’t be so quick to speculate (and I hate all that bump watch crap that goes on) but given that she would NEVER miss major premieres such as Thor 2, all roads point to her being pregnant.

  17. pretty kitty says:

    maybe studio told tacky pataky to stay away to make hemsworth seem more available to his female fanbase. happens all the time. studio needed to make back a lot of money. it’s not like she’s angie jolie, most people will forget she wasn’t there if she wasn’t there until someone reminds us she wasn’t there..

  18. turningviolet says:

    Yes she definitely looks pregnant to me although that might be wishful thinking on my part – if only to see CH carrying a tiny baby around in his arms again. Those pictures always made me almost want to add a 4th child to my current brood (almost).

  19. Sheera says:

    Either a baby, or a BOOBJOB

  20. amilu says:

    She looks pregnant to me, too. *shrug*

  21. Kosmos says:

    If that is Hemsworth’s mother in “white,” then his father might be the one coming up from behind? By the way, I don’t think her breasts look that big, really….it’s a combination of the large knitted sweater top she is wearing, plus the purse strap cutting in between. The sweater alone certainly adds a lot of heft. Also, she may have implants, like everyone else.

  22. Charlotte says:

    Okay, I’m putting it out there…my brother is a ringer for CHemsworth. To the point where I’ve screengrabbed shots of Chris and sent them to my dad and he’s thought it was my brother.
    I get disturbed seeing pics of Chris. It’s freaky.

  23. Caroline says:

    She looks like she gained 15 pounds (if not more) or pregnant…

  24. ThunderGoddess says:

    Spanish newspapers all agree she’s pregnant although no official confirmation from Chris or Elsa’s reps……

    She seemed a bit plumper than usual at Rush premiere in London though, so that was in September… maybe she put on weight and she is ashamed? I wouldn’t be suprised she didn’t go to a premiere because she didn’t want to show herself that way (pregnant or not). She once said that before India she used to look at every eyelash she had… not even vain….

  25. GrannyPants says:

    Confirmation here that they are expecting baby No2
