Pataky had to be in a top physical condition to play an army lieutenant in ‘Interceptor’ so her ‘Thor’ star husband has been helping her get in shape and enjoying workout sessions together.

“As you know, I’m always training and keeping fit because I like to have a toned body. But for this role, I had to take things to a whole other level,” Pataky told HELLO! Magazine.

Chris is thrilled because we’re training together more often now. He’s giving me lots of great tips.

I’m now doing more weight training, because I needed to boost my physical strength…I needed to be very agile too. It was very tough.

Even when her training has been “tough”, Pataky who has an eight-year-old daughter and seven-year-old twins, she is keen to keep the routine when the project ends.

I feel great. This is a very intense training – and once we’re done with the film, it’s not something I’ll keep doing.

It takes up too much time – time that I prefer to spend with the kids.

Chris is a fan of the darker hair his wife is sporting for the role in the new movie.

The director wanted the character’s hair to be a little more chestnut and I was happy to oblige. Actually, Chris likes it.

This new role Pataky is going to play is a dream come true for her as she has always “really wanted” to be in an action film.

I play a really strong woman, physically, and mentally – a real fighter, a lieutenant in the US army, with a real sense of duty.

It’s an action film, from start to finish. I’d always really wanted to be in an action movie.

– Elsa Pataky
