Australian actor Chris Hemsworth says he has to â€œpretendâ€ to understand his wife Elsa Pataky when she tells their children off in Spanish because he is the only member of their household not to speak it fluently.
â€œTheyâ€™re fluent in Spanish. I speak one sentence. I pretend to (understand) my wife will tell them off and it sounds like â€˜dghdghdghâ€™ to my ear and Iâ€™m like, â€˜Thatâ€™s rightâ€¦ what did you tell them?â€™
â€œYouâ€™d think (it would be easy to learn). When I hear the Spanish directed at me itâ€™s usually in pretty unfortunate, controversial, aggressive situations so Iâ€™m just thinking, â€˜What is she saying right now and whatâ€™s my comeback?â€™ When weâ€™re fighting basically. Which is neverâ€¦â€ said Hemsworth, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
While Pataky has been teaching their brood her language, the actor, 34, has been spending time teaching their children how to surf.
After talk show host Ellen DeGeneres shared a video clip of him riding the waves with his daughter on his back, he said: â€œI occasionally get back problems and since Iâ€™ve started doing that itâ€™s got worse, 20 lbs of extra weight and you are getting choked out. I didnâ€™t think it would stick but theyâ€™re like, â€˜More, more, more.â€™
â€œThey surf, tiny little waves. Big surfboards make it easy. They love it and where we live is perfect to do that, they are water babies.â€
