SHE is usually seen in a bikini or boho ensemble but Elsa Pataky has showed off her tough side wearing leather on the set of a new photo shoot.
Pataky flaunted her flawless figure in a black mini skirt and biker jacket, teamed with blue booties as she posed on a Byron Bay street.
The Spanish beauty, 41, who is married to Chris Hemsworth, 34, is a huge fan of Australian label Spell, known for its hippie-inspired designs, but tried out the hard-edge new look for her latest shoot.
Pataky is currently shooting Netflix series, Tidelands, in Queensland opposite buff Australian actor Aaron Jakubenko.
It’s Netflix’s first original Australian series, described as a supernatural crime drama.
The series follows a former criminal as she returns home to a small fishing village.
When the body of a local fisherman washes ashore, she must uncover the town’s secrets while investigating its strange people that include half-humans called “Tidelanders.”
Pataky’s character Adrielle is described as “the darkly enigmatic and keenly intelligent leader of the Tidelanders; a woman unafraid to do anything to meet her ruthless ends”.

“At the same time, they are getting older and going to school so it is good to do something I am passionate about. I love to work. I feel really lucky having the opportunity to get back to work.”
Last week, Pataky and Hemsworth turned heads in Byron Bay where they packed on the PDA while at the beach with friends including Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso.
So how the mother-of-three keep in such incredible shape?
“An apple, a carrot, some celery with the green leaves, a lemon without the peel,” Pataky said of one of her healthy go-to meals, according to OK.
“Once it’s done, you add a few teaspoons of olive oil … Super good.”
