Elsa Pataky takes up painting | Entertainment and celebrity news

Elsa Pataky and her daughter took up painting to relax.

The 45-year-old beauty – who has India, 10, and twins Tristan and Sasha, eight, with husband Chris Hemsworth – finds meditation beneficial when it comes to alleviating the stresses of life, and her new hobby had a similar soothing effect.

She told Australian magazine Marie Claire: “Meditation helps me a lot when I’m really stressed. Take care of children and take care of your husband and take care of you; it’s so stressful.

“I started painting with my daughter and I feel like it’s a kind of meditation.

“During the last vacation, we just sat down and painted.

“I think it’s such a good thing to find your passion. It kinda takes my mind off all this madness.

The ‘Interceptor’ actress thinks she’s most beautiful when she’s content and enjoying what she does, alone or with her family.

She added: “I feel more beautiful in the natural moments when I do my hobbies, my passions.

“I feel so happy that I think that’s what brings it all out, when you’re not stressed and you have those moments to yourself.

“I’m passionate about riding, so I love doing it. Or the times with my family; watching TV with my kids or whatever, doing yoga. Those little moments.”

Elsa recently launched her own skincare product, Purely Byron, inspired by her family’s move to her husband’s native Australia.

She explained: “The idea for Purely Byron started when I moved to Byron Bay. I felt this immediate connection to this incredible place. Its natural beauty, spirit and sense of community. There was just something amazing about it…

“I’m passionate about skincare and natural ingredients, so [launching Purely Byron Skincare] had started to enter my head.

“I found out about all the herbs Byron has here that are so powerful and so interesting. And then I met these two amazing professional women who helped me set it up.
