Isla Fisher and Elsa Pataky’s Friendship
Isla Fisher, the 44-year-old actress has been vacationing in Byron Bay with her husband Sacha Baron Cohen and the Hemsworth family. And it seems that her and Elsa Pataky, 44-year old Spanish actress and also Chris Hemsworth’s wife have developed a great friendship. But if we look at it closely, Isla Fisher and Elsa Pataky’s friendship was bound to happen sooner than later.
Bonding over the little pony Akoha
Isla Fisher, recently, shared photographs from the Hemsworth’s farm. She also tagged Elsa in the picture. The photo showed a smiling Isla standing beside a newborn pony, Akoha, which Elsa helped deliver in December, at the Hemsworth’s property. The little foal was born in the middle of the night.
“Don’t worry, we were both tested before we took this pic,” Isla captioned the photo. This made Elsa comment, “Little Akoha!!”
Birth of Akoha, the baby horse
At the time of the birth of the pony, Elsa shared a clip of herself delivering the baby horse alongside her kids. “What an amazing experience to share with my kids. Welcome to the family little Akoha,” she captioned the video at the time.
Other things in common between Isla Fisher and Elsa Pataky
Other than their mutual love for the pony Isla Fisher and Elsa Pataky also have a lot of other things in common. Both the actresses married their significant others in 2010 with Isla Fisher marrying 49-year-old Sacha Baron Cohen, and Elsa Pataky marrying Chris Hemsworth. The actresses also have three children who are roughly of the same ages.
Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen have been vacationing in Byron Bay recently after the couple moved to Sydney, Australia from Los Angeles sometime around the end of 2020. The couple also attended Chris and Elsa’s space pirate themed New Year’s Eve party, which was hosted at Liam Hemsworth’s $6.5 million mansion nearby, according to Daily Mail.
Isla shared a photo of herself in a costume for the party on Instagram, captioning the picture, “C’mon 2021 it’s time to zap Covid #thankf**kforthevaccine #happynewyear”
Isla Fisher and Chris Hemsworth are also former colleagues, with both of them appearing in the same Aussie drama, ‘Home and Away’ albeit during different timelines. Even then, Isla Fisher kept in touch with her ex- co-stars.
Both Isla Fisher and Elsa Pataky had dreamed of moving to Byron Bay one day as the actresses revealed in respective interviews.
In May 2018, Isla Fisher revealed to marie claire Australia, “I have this secret fantasy of slowing down, moving to Byron Bay, getting off the grid and sitting on the sand with a Vegemite sandwich.”
Similarly, Elsa Pataky opened up about her ambitions to Vogue Australia in January 2020 saying, “My goal was always, when I have kids, to be in a place that’s not the city. I want them to grow up in nature, because I crave that… My dream was always to have a farm and horses. When we were trying to find a property, I had to have a place where I could have horses and my kids could be with them and enjoy that, too.”
So it seems that Isla Fisher and Elsa Pataky bonded after reconnecting with each other in Byron Bay, and it is a friendship that seems quite promising in the future!
