Elsa Pataky says being a mum is the 'hardest work of all' in Marie Claire Australia 


Elsa Pataky says ‘being a mum is the hardest work of all’ as she discusses her new action movie while posing on the cover of Marie Claire Australia

Elsa Pataky has candidly claimed that being a parent is more difficult than starring in movies in the June issue of Marie Claire Australia, on sale from Thursday, May 13.

The 45-year-old, who shares daughter India, nine, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, eight, with husband Chris Hemsworth, opened up about the topic while discussing her lead role in Netflix’s upcoming action film, Interceptor.

During the interview, Elsa confessed: ‘Being a mum is the hardest work of all – and there’s no awards for that.

‘And then you do a movie and people are like, “Oh wow!” – it’s kind of nice to feel appreciated, and to have your own thing that makes you feel like yourself.’

Elsa’s husband Chris, 38, is best known for playing superhero Thor in the Marvel movies.

And after landing the lead role as Interceptor’s no-nonsense army lieutenant JJ Collins, Elsa has admitted she’s proud to be able to show her daughter that gender is no barrier when it comes to following your dreams.

‘It used to be difficult to get these roles, but now it’s opening up,’ she added. ‘It was such a good opportunity to show her that.’

In an accompanying photo shoot for the magazine, Elsa posed for the cover in a Yves Saint Laurent top which showed off her muscular arms and abs to perfection.

Her hair was whisked back into a tight bun, and she wore subtle bronze makeup to accentuate her striking features.

Elsa – who originally feared she was ‘too old’ to play such a physically intense role in Interceptor – endured ‘military-style training’ for six months before filming began.

She will lead the film as a soldier who must save the world when 16 nuclear missiles are launched in the United States.

Elsa’s husband Chris produced the action film alongside Kathy Morgan, Christopher Mapp, Robert Slaviero, and Peter D. Graves.

In March last year, Elsa told News Corp that she has been rehearsing moves for the film using a toy pistol at home with Chris and their three children.

‘I brought home a toy gun to practice with and was showing my kids a fight I have to do and they were really excited. Especially my daughter, who has two brothers who keep telling her ‘we’re stronger than you’ and she says ‘no way!’

The actress continued: ‘She can now see in what ways she can be stronger.’

The June issue of Marie Claire is on sale Thursday, May 13.
