How Long Have Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky Been Together?

Amidst the Miley-Liam drama — and the constant tabloid tendency to share negative news — it’s easy to forget that some marriages in Hollywood have managed to stand the test of time. Overcoming the struggles tied to fame, paparazzi, differing lifestyles, and more, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have been together for quite a while.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky — one the face of Thor and the other a Spanish model, actress, and film producer — are quite the power couple in the industry. Hemsworth continues to land major movie deals, playing the leading man in various action-comedies, and he is set to star as Hulk Hogan in a biopic for Netflix down the line. 

Elsa Pataky attended Universidad CEU San Pablo, where she studied journalism and acting. After landing her first role, she left school to focus on her acting career and went on to appear in the Fast and Furious franchise, as well as the TV series Tidelands (among other projects). She was even named the highest-paid model in 2017, according to People Magazine’s ranking system. 

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky met in quite the ordinary fashion. Despite all the fairytale romances spewing from Hollywood, this story is more commonplace. The two were introduced by the talent agent William Ward, and their romance took flame like a wildfire. Within three months, they were vacationing together in Indonesia, and they got married while on the trip!

Supposedly, Hemsworth later shared that, because their families were together on the vacation, they figured there was no better time to do it, as such an opportunity would not present itself anytime soon again. 

Talk about knowing when it’s right. So, just how many years ago did a talent agent play matchmaker? 

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky wed in 2010

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky got married in 2010 over the Christmas holiday. Meaning, these two will soon approach their first decade as a married couple! That’s an accomplishment for any marriage, but especially one under public scrutiny. 

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have three children together. Their eldest daughter, Indie Rose, was born in 2012, and they have two twin sons — Trista and Sasha — who were born in 2014. And, we can guarantee that when mom and dad are out working, Liam steps up to babysit. Or, at least we can hope this is the case (with a little help from a nanny or two). 

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky should serve to remind fans, and those who follow celebrity couples, that not all Hollywood romances end abruptly. Not all Hollywood romances take to flame and burn out. Maybe Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have found the secret to success — living outside Tinseltown — for they manage to be doing just fine at their residence in Australia. 

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky may one day be the next Tom Hank and Rita Wilson; however, for now, let’s stick to celebrating their first decade together, which is right around the bend.
