‘Tidelands’ star Elsa Pataky shares her Spain-inspired style picks


In the past two months, Elsa Pataky has jetted to San Sebastián for a film festival, Santorini on a girls’ trip and Morocco with her family. The 42-year-old model and actress, best known for the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, shares these adventures with her 2.4 million Insta followers. But home base is Australia’s Byron Bay, a beachfront haven where Pataky and husband Chris Hemsworth (the 35-year-old hunk of “Thor” and “Avengers” fame) are raising three children, ages 6 and under. The Madrid native got her start on Spanish dramas and promotes tourism to the country. She broke out in “Snakes on a Plane” and next stars in “Tidelands,” Netflix Australia’s first original series, a thriller about a tribe of humanoid sea creatures (out Dec. 14). The globe-trotting beauty shares the boho-chic treats that keep her on the move.

“Virgin olive oil is one of the staples in my kitchen. Wherever I go, I always have some at home — always a Spanish brand! My children love having a piece of toast with olive oil in the morning.”

“I know there are a lot of books about Frida [Kahlo], but Susana Vidal captures the complex personality of this exceptional artist from a different angle. A clear example of female empowerment, the painter has shown that feminism and femininity can coexist.”
