They seemingly have it all – good looks, a gorgeous young family and a laid-back life in idyllic Byron Bay on the NSW North Coast.
But life for Aussie heartthrob Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky may not be as picture perfect as it appears.
Sources say the pair could be the next celebrity couple to call time on their marriage, and with their relationship on the rocks, insiders say Chris and Elsa are almost living separate lives.
“They’ve decided they need space, and they’ve been taking a little break from each other,” a close friend reveals exclusively to Woman’s Day.
“Hopefully it will be a case of absence makes the heart grow fonder, but they definitely appear to have some issues that need to be sorted out. It has raised a few eyebrows among their friends.”

Those in the know started to suspect something might be awry when Elsa jetted off to her native Spain last month, taking their kids – India, four, and two-year-old twins Tristan and Sasha – along with her.
The 40-year-old actress looked thrilled to be taking a long break to visit family and friends while Chris, 33, remained in Australia filming the latest Thor movie.
Chris and Elsa were last seen together on September 3 with their children in Byron Bay.
