Most people think Elsa Pataky is famous for dating Adrien Brody and having plastic surgery. But that was a while ago now. Now she’s famous for dating Chris Hemworth from Home and Away (he’s playing Thor in upcoming film, Thor) and having plastic surgery. Twelve months is a long time in Hollywood.

The Spanish beauty, whose daddy is a biochemist and who studied journalism at the Universidad de San Pablo but decided to pack it all in for a role in Snakes on a Plane, might be a little bit more famous next year.

Ha. Told you. Where were we? Yes, Elsa Pataky. The 34-year-old is all set for her role in Fast Five, the fifth film in the Fast and the Furious series, alongside Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster and Ludacris. Bet you it’s shit.
