Elsa Pataky, 47, shows off her fit physique in a G-string swimming costume as she hits the beach with friends in Byron Bay – before returning to her car to discover a parking fine

Elsa Pataky showed off her incredibly fit physique in a very revealing swimsuit as she hit the beach in Byron Bay with friends on Wednesday. 

The Spanish actress, 47, who recently quashed rumours of marriage trouble with husband Chris Hemsworth, was all smiles as she enjoyed a dip during the girls-only outing. 

Looking fit and fabulous, the mother-of-three showcased her svelte physique in a rust-coloured swimsuit that featured a plunging neckline, backless detailing and cheeky G-string bottoms. 

She accessorised her look with bohemian-inspired pendant necklaces, bracelets and several rings, including what looked to be her wedding ring.

Elsa also tied her hair up in a messy ponytail and shielded her makeup-free visage beneath a pair of aviator sunglasses.

Unfortunately, Elsa’s beach day bliss soon came crashing down when she returned to her Range Rover and discovered she’d been issued with a parking fine. 

The sighting comes after Elsa and Chris were hit by split rumours. 

The couple, who have been married for more than 10 years, recently set tongues wagging that not all was well in paradise after they went on separate holidays.

A source close to the pair recently told In Touch magazine that despite maintaining a united front for their family and spending Christmas together, the duo have been growing apart for some time.

‘The status of Chris and Elsa’s marriage is a question mark,’ a source told the publication.

‘The separate vacations are a huge red flag, but it’s more than that. They’re still very much a united family, but they’ve drifted apart as a couple.’

The source claimed Chris wants to live a ‘simpler life’ but ‘Elsa wants more’.

‘They were the perfect husband-and-wife team for so long – both gorgeous, beautiful kids. Everything seemed picture-perfect. But things have definitely changed,’ they added.

The couple spent a significant amount of time holidaying separately last year, prompting fans to question if all is well in paradise.

Since fans raised their concerns, Chris and Elsa have well and truly poured cold water over the speculation, sharing several photos of themselves looking very happy during family holidays in Fiji and at the snow over the holidays.

The chatter first began when Elsa and the couple’s children put up the family Christmas tree at their Byron Bay mansion without Chris.

‘Haven’t seen you and Chris together in a while. Hope all is good,’ one follower commented underneath photos the Spanish star posted of the Hemsworth clan decorating the home.

‘Where is Chris?’ another worried fan wrote, as one pointed out the pair have been taking less photos together than usual.

Chris and Elsa tied the knot during the Christmas holidays in 2010.

The couple live in a $30million mansion in Broken Head near Byron Bay after relocating from Los Angeles to Australia nine years ago.
