I Think A Lot About The Time Adrien Brody Bought a Castle for Elsa Pataky Then She Dumped Him For Chris Hemsworth https://t.co/hnuTYwCS0E— pajiba (@pajiba) December 9, 2019
Kayleigh Donaldson with Pajiba takes a trip down memory lane and recalls a minor celebrity love story from early 00's. In 2006, when Adrian Brody was the youngest man to ever win an Oscar, he dated Spanish actress Elsa Pataky. In 2007, to celebrate her 31st birthday, Brody bought her a castle in upstate New York.
In addition to buying her castle, Brody and Pataky were featured in a cheesy 35 page spread in Hello! magazine. Yes, 35 whole pages devoted to their love.
I am and will forever be obsessed by the time Adrien Brody bought a castle for Elsa Pataky, then they did a 35-page spread exclusive for Hello! about it, then she dumped him for Chris Hemsworth. pic.twitter.com/JAvBajk0yT— Kayleigh Donaldson (@Ceilidhann) December 8, 2019
That wasn't the only feature the couple did together. In January 2009, they did an another spread in Hello! Canada. This one was worse.
Worse they did a super inappropriate white saviour hello! feature with the photo caption “Actress Elsa Pataky walks along a road in South Africa surrounded by a group of smiling local children, who are mesmerized by her beauty and down-to earth affection.” https://t.co/yG7gdbn7z6— Bella Mackie (@bellamackie) December 9, 2019
The couple broke up in 2009. Brody kept the castle and made a documentary about renovating the castle.
For those who are wondering, Brody kept the castle, spent seven years renovating it, then made a documentary about it. Just in case you ever questioned why he did movies like Dragon Blade. pic.twitter.com/429xlOac5H— Kayleigh Donaldson (@Ceilidhann) December 8, 2019
In 2010, Elsa met and later married Chris Hemsworth. She was able to trade in a castle for an Ikea. Adrien is rumored to be dating Georgina Chapman, fashion designer and owner of Marchesa.
