  • Elsa Pataky is the wife of Chris Hemsworth.
  • Elsa Pataky is one of the actresses who have portrayed multiple characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Pataky's shot in Thor: The Dark World was filmed in Hong Kong during re-shoots and Portman was unavailable, due to working on another film, so Pataky, wearing a wig, and shot from behind so that her face would not be visible, was used for the shot where Foster approaches Thor and kisses her.
