Elsa Pataky on the February 2018 Cover of ELLE Australia Magazine

Elsa Pataky might have put her career in the backseat but she is not a forgotten actress. Elsa is the February 2018 cover star of ELLE Australia. On the cover which was shot by Georges Antoni, Elsa is wearing a MICHAEL LO SORDO jumpsuit and BULGARI jewelry. In the issue, she talks openly about choosing her family over her career, reveling in her quiet life, getting out of your comfort zone and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on Elsa's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand on January 25th. 

On how having kids changed her mind about her career:
It's interesting how you can be a successful woman who has been working her whole life, and then you have kids and suddenly your career isn't as important and you don't appreciate it as much, and you just think, 'What am I doing? I have been fighting all my life for this and now I don't know if I really want it? It's unfair in a way, because I don't think men go through that. But when you become a mum, everything that was important goes into second position. You change a lot, you mature, you see life differently and learn so many things.

On starting a family:
I think any time you start a family without knowing each other that much, it can be complicated... He was very young to be starting a family, and at the same time he was juggling that with his career and it was sometimes difficult, there was so much going on. But he was always trying to be the best dad and has never failed to make me feel like his family is the most important thing to him and [going through that] is how we've become so strong together.

On leaving your comfort zone:
I always tell people, don't be scared of moving out of your comfort zone because if you are, you'll miss out on so much life. Almost every person I've met who has had the courage to leave everything and have another experience, they have never regretted it. Just go, leave everything, who cares what is going to happen? You'll have to start again? Great!
