She’s the wife of a superhero, but mother of three and celebrated actor, Elsa Pataky is no sidekick. In our June issue of marie claire Australia, the Spanish native reveals her latest role in Netflix’s new film Interceptor and why she is making a strong play for her husband Chris Hemsworth’s longstanding title of the family’s action star.
Relishing the opportunity to role model the reality of a working mother for her kids, Pataky says her daughter India was particularly impressed with her mum’s toughness on-screen, especially as she and her brothers have grown up watching their dad be the family’s main action star.
“I loved being able to show [India] that nothing can stop you just because you’re a girl. You can be strong, you can do whatever you want. It used to be difficult to get these roles, but now it’s opening up. It was such a good opportunity to show her that.”
