Pataky and Hemsworth have been married for 10 years and the Thor actor recently revealed why his wife chose not to take his last name.

In an interview on the Kyle and Jackie O Show, Hemsworth said that Pataky wanted to take his name but it would have caused issues with her passport.

“I think that she actually wanted to do it. I think she still may,” he said.

“I think it was when we were coming back from America. We were living in Europe and deciding where to go. It was a complication of passports and so on,” he said.
