Chris Hemsworth & Elsa Pataky’s marriage is not on the rocks, just FYI

Here’s my question: are Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky doing okay these days because they moved back to Australia? Or do we just perceive their marriage to be stronger because they are no longer living in LA, the hotbed of celebrity gossip? I don’t know. But I do think moving back to Australia was probably a smart move overall. The fact that Elsa isn’t pap-strolling on a weekly basis has probably strengthened their marriage, because Chris always seemed like he didn’t appreciate Elsa putting their life out there so much. Anyway, one of the Aussie tabloids tried to say that Chris and Elsa were having problems. So Chris posted the above Instagram slapping back at the rumor.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky won’t be Hollywood’s next big breakup – just ask the Thor star himself. When rumors that the couple’s marriage may be on the rocks surfaced, the Aussie actor wasted no time setting the record straight. Hemsworth, 33, shared a photo with his wife on Instagram, poking fun at the false rumors.

“Looking for a new wife according to @womansdayaus and other misleading outlets!” he captioned the snap of the duo on a boat with Hemsworth shielding his eyes to look out into the distance. “Honey you still love me right?!” The heartthrob even added his own hashtag: “#thanksfortheheadsup.”

A source tells PEOPLE that a report their marriage is on the rocks is not true at all and that they are still happily married. The marriage update was in response to a report by Woman’s Day Australia that the couple’s marriage on the verge of a breakdown.

“They’ve decided they need space, and they’ve been taking a little break from each other,” a source told the outlet. “Hopefully it will be a case of absence makes the heart grow fonder, but they definitely appear to have some issues that need to be sorted out. It has raised a few eyebrows among their friends.”

Hemsworth and the Spanish model wed in 2010 and are parents to 4-year-old India Rose and 2-year-old twin sons Sasha and Tristan.

So you believe them? I do. I think Elsa is in it for the long haul and I think… well, Chris is happy enough. He seems like a doting father and he loves his public persona of a heartthrob-family-man. I have a theory (completely unconfirmed, it’s more like “just a feeling”) that Chris has let his eyes wander a few times and Elsa in turn has turned a blind eye to it. So whatever works for them.

Ahora y siempre ! Always and forever!! 😉 @chrishemsworth

    Ha! I had no idea why this story was all over the place this morning. The Aussie tabloids ran break up rumours…no one else cared! 😂

    The stories about him having a wandering eye have been around for awhile. *Shrug*, she knows the game and how to play. He’s not and not going to be the big superstar some initially pegged him for, but it’s not like she’s in a position to upgrade and not sure he would bother. They’ll likely stay together.

      Interesting. I hadn’t heard any stories about him having a wandering eye –maybe I’ve been reading the wrong gossip! It’ll be interesting to see how these two go in the future. I’ve always been a little surprised by the fact that he got married so young and so quickly, but then, she definitely wanted an A-Lister!

    • SK says:

      Really? I’ve never heard this and I have friends in common with him – both in Aus and in Venice where they used to live. Ah well… Nothing people do would surprise me! I guess my take on it is that he wants what his parents have – a long-term stable and loving marriage and family. It feels like her hustle has settled a lot since they moved to Aus and she’s a lot more likeable. They seem like a cool family. Personally I would never want a relationship with a famous actor, musician or sportsman because it feels like almost all of them cheat (with rare exceptions like Hugh Jackman) – the culture of those industries is set up that way and they’re away all the time and women THROW themselves at them.

    Unrelated, i keep checking this website to see your take on the walking dead premier.
    Please do a story on it!! :)

    • GreenBunny says:

      Hahaha, I’ve been doing the same exact thing. I just click on stories to read while I wait for the CB analysis.

  3. Incredulous says:

    His upper and lower right arm look like two different arms frankensteined together.

  4. Moon says:

    Always wondered why they got together. And they got married fast. Seems like they have nothing in common

  5. Tiffany says:

    Replace Elsa with his career and I will believe it.

  6. Marty says:

    Why even bother to reply? Lower tabloids always run stories like this, and isn’t it a little disingenuous since Elsa has given many exclusives to Hola! magazine?

    Or is it only ok when the story is favorable?

  7. Cupcake says:

    Elsa’s leg looks so funny in that top picture. My eye keeps getting drawn to it. She’s gorgeous but seems insufferable to me.

  8. Sarah says:

    I get the impression that he loves his kids & being a Dad, a little more than he loves the traditional husband/wife dynamic

  9. inkqueen says:

    oh man kaiser when we will get Tom Hiddleston thread? It’s been a long time. :(

    • TotallyBiased says:

      Inky: go to the BC Dr Strange thread for a fix of Tom’s grey shoes–Bendy is apparently wearing them now.
      In other news, you must have seen the Boxtrolls trailer (I’m thinking GdT called in a favour there) and the press releases for Early Man, the latest Aardman production.
      Also evidently Kevin Feige, Taika Waititi, and Tom saw Dr Strange this weekend in Queensland.

    A friend of mine used to live near him and would always see him around and about. She said he was really very lovely and always said hi.
