Husband and wife duo, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, are teaming up in a new content series with Swisse Wellness.
The five-part video series titled ‘Swisse – The Quest Continues’, is released alongside the brand's 50th anniversary. It will feature interviews with the pair, delving into topics such as the decision to move from the U.S. to Byron Bay, how they approach work and their focus on family and health.
"I do have a sort of all-or-nothing approach to things. The common thread between my training, nutrition, mindfulness, work, all of it now is about pushing the boundaries," said Hemsworth. "I don’t think there’s many people out there, who when training right, eating right, resting and being mindful – don’t feel happier,"
“That was one of the big things that influenced the decision to work with Swisse. They have a like-minded attitude to help people make healthier choices."
"I really appreciate the way that Swisse is pushing the boundaries and finding the best nutrients, but is still continuously trying to improve and evolve, and grow. I think that is what all of us can apply to our everyday life, plain and simple,” he said.
Swisse managing director for Australia and New Zealand, Nick Mann believes finding balance is the quest everyone is on.
“Sometimes we need to feel brave to make the changes that might bring balance to our existence. Chris and Elsa have taken, arguably, a much bigger step to find balance than most of us would ever think about making, but the positive result is unquestionable when you see them in the wild, natural beauty of Byron Bay," said Mann.
"We love working with Chris and Elsa and hope that these stories will inspire others, or even remind people to seek out those moments that bring joy and balance.”
The first short film released, below, features Hemsworth explaining his move back to regional Australia.
“My friends here aren’t a part of the business, so there’s new, refreshing, exciting conversations and I feel like I’m learning something. It’s a much easier way to find that balance and switch off from work."
“I have a huge appreciation for Hollywood and L.A. – it’s where my career started; it’s where I met my wife. (But) once I became busy with work, we had kids, it never really felt like home. It was very hard to detach yourself from work. I felt there was a lack of creativity within me – so we made a conscious decision to move back to Australia and here to Byron Bay.”
Of the five films being released, four will feature Hemsworth and one will star Pataky. The pair joined Swisse as global ambassadors in early 2019; a partnership born from a shared passion for a holistic approach to health and wellness, and continual development and innovation.
