Chris is very close to his family, who all live in Australia, where he also resides with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children, India, Tristan and Sasha. The actor, 34, has previously spoken about Leonie - a retired English teacher, who has also worked alongside her husband Craig for the Australian Childhood Foundation - crediting her for getting him his role in Thor, by reading the part of Odin for him ahead of the auditions. "She must have nailed it, because it got me back in the room," Chris explained to Vanity Fair back in 2017.
