Elsa Lafuente Medianu (born 18 July 1976), known professionally as Elsa Pataky, is a Spanish model, actress, and film producer. Pataky is best known for her role as Elena Neves in Fast Five (2011), Fast & Furious 6 (2013) and Furious 7 (2015). She has appeared in the films Snakes on a Plane (2006), Giallo (2009) and Give 'Em Hell, Malone (2009). She also starred in the Spanish film Di Di Hollywood in 2010.


Pataky began dating American actor Adrien Brody in 2006. For Pataky's 31st birthday in July 2007, Brody purchased her a 19th-century estate in New York. Pataky and Brody were featured at their New York home in a 35-page spread for HELLO! magazine in October 2008. The pair broke up in 2009, and Pataky subsequently dated French actor Olivier Martinez that year.

She then began dating Australian actor Chris Hemsworth in early 2010, after meeting through their mutual representatives. Pataky and Hemsworth married over the Christmas holidays in 2010. They have three children: daughter India Rose (born May 11, 2012) and twin sons, Tristan and Sasha (born March 18, 2014).

In September 2012, Pataky won €310,000 in Spain's supreme court against publishing group Ediciones Zeta. In March 2007, Interviu magazine, owned by the Zeta, published topless photos of Pataky that had been taken with a long lens while Pataky was changing clothes during a photoshoot for Elle magazine. The Zeta group said it would appeal the decision.

In addition to Spanish, she is fluent in English, Romanian, Italian, and French.
