Pataky likes to supplement her daily activity with ‘exercise snacking’ in addition to structured weights sessions multiple times a week. Exercise snacking, or ‘fitness snacking,’ as it sounds, entails doing several short periods of exercise throughout the day (think: a few bodyweight squats during an ad break or taking the stairs instead of the lift), which studies have shown to improve both strength and cardiorespiratory fitness, and in Pataky’s case, energy.

In terms of diet, the Spanish star prefers the long-heralded Mediterranean diet. Pataky, who is not one to follow fads, told Sunrise that she follows a healthy plant-based diet rich in vegetables, fruits, legumes, wholegrains, nuts, seeds, and olive oil for sustainability. Pataky is also one of a number of celebrities who practice intermittent fasting, with the actress revealing that it was Hemsworth who first introduced her to the time-restricted eating style, admitting that she was initially hesitant because she didn’t want to lose weight. Pataky swears by spending time outside and riding her horse Chester to reconnect with herself and what makes her happy.

Elsa Pataky Fast and Furious 

Pataky played Elena Neves again in Fast & Furious 6 (2013), Furious 7 (2015), and The Fate of the Furious (2017), the sixth, seventh, and eighth installments of The Fast and the Furious film series, respectively. Elena Neves worked as a patrol officer and Diplomatic Security Service agent in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Elena was recruited by DSS agent Luke Hobbs in his effort to track down then-wanted criminals Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner following the deaths of four DEA agents on a civilian train.

Elena, along with Hobbs, assists Dominic Toretto’s crew in stealing $100 million from corrupt politician Hernan Reyes when an attempt on her and the DSS agents’ lives is sanctioned by Reyes himself. Elena later becomes close friends with Dominic and his family and later relocates to Los Angeles to work in the Diplomatic Security Service with Hobbs. Marcos, her and Dominic’s son, is born in 2014. Elena and her son were kidnapped by a cyberterrorist named Cipher shortly after Deckard Shaw’s arrest in order to force Dominic to work with her.

Elsa Pataky Snakes on a Plane

Pataky appeared as Maria, a passenger traveling with her infant daughter Isabella in Snakes on a Plane, a 2006 American action film. Due to the film’s title, casting, and premise, the film received a significant amount of attention prior to its release, forming large fanbases online and becoming an Internet phenomenon. New Line Cinema incorporated feedback from online users into its production and added five days of reshooting in response to the Internet fan base.

The film was parodied and alluded to on television shows and films, fan-made videos, video games, and various forms of literature both before and after its release. The film received mixed reviews when it was released on August 18, 2006, in the United States and the United Kingdom. Despite the enormous Internet buzz, the film’s gross revenue fell short of expectations, earning US$15.25 million on its opening weekend. Before its home video release on January 2, 2007, the film had grossed US$62 million worldwide.

Elsa Pataky Tidelands

Pataky appeared as Adrielle Cuthbert in Tidelands, an Australian streaming television series. Tidelands is an Australian television series about a woman who returns to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay after serving time for a crime she committed when she was a teenager. She discovers secrets about the town’s inhabitants, some of whom are siren–human hybrids known as “Tidelanders,” the result of sirens’ sexual relations with marine fishermen. After Series 1 ends on a cliffhanger and most of the central characters are murdered, not all plotlines are resolved.

Elsa Pataky Di Di Hollywood

Pataky appeaed as Diana Diaz “Di Di” in Di Di Hollywood, a 2010 drama film. Diana Diaz works in a bar in Madrid; she aspires to be famous and travels to Miami. When she arrives, she meets Robert, and the two decide to go to Hollywood, willing to go to any length to become famous. She meets agent Michael McLean there. He changes her name to ‘Di Di’ and gives her false hopes of fame. But she soon discovers that he is only interested in using her as a beard for gay actor Steve Richards.

Elsa Pataky Give ‘Em Hell, Malone

Pataky appeared as Evelyn in Give ‘Em Hell, Malone, a 2009 American neo-noir action crime thriller film. Malone, an ex-private eye turned gun for hire, is hired to retrieve a suitcase from a building full of armed mobsters, but a violent shootout ensues, leaving Malone as the sole survivor. Suspicious of a set-up, he keeps the only notable item in the case – a small painted animal referred to as “the meaning of love” – for himself, prompting several parties in the employ of a local gangster – Whitmore – to pursue Malone in an attempt to decipher the meaning of the case’s contents.

After a series of violent encounters in which many people are killed, Malone confronts Whitmore, who admits he was responsible for hiring Malone and planted the toy – a keepsake belonging to Malone’s young son – to trick Malone into exterminating Whitmore’s criminal help, allowing Whitmore to become a legitimate businessman without fear of being tainted by potential loose ends from his criminal past. Malone murders Whitmore and calls his wife and son, who were presumed dead, but does not engage them in conversation. In the end, a title-over reads, “To Be Continued…” but no sequel occurred.

Elsa Pataky Thor: The Dark World

Due to a scheduling conflict, Pataky stood in for Natalie Portman during the post-credits kissing scene in Thor: The Dark World. Natalie portrayed Jane Foster, an astrophysicist and Thor’s love interest who Thor transports from Earth to Asgard after becoming infected with a mysterious energy.

Thor: The Dark World premiered on October 22, 2013, at the Odeon Leicester Square in London, and was released in the United States on November 8, as part of Phase Two of the MCU. The film was a commercial success, grossing over $644 million worldwide and ranking as the tenth highest-grossing film of 2013, but it received mixed reviews from critics.

It received praise for Hemsworth and Hiddleston’s performances, visual effects, and action sequences, but it was panned for its generic villain and lack of depth. Taylor later expressed dissatisfaction with the film, claiming that Marvel significantly altered it from his original vision during post-production. Thor: Ragnarok, directed by Taika Waititi, was released in 2017, and a fourth film, Thor: Love and Thunder, is set to be released on July 8, 2022.
