Last week, Elsa Pataky didn't hold back when asked about her brother-in-law Liam Hemsworth's marriage breakdown with Miley Cyrus, saying that the 29-year-old is "a little bit down" and deserves "much better".
"After a relationship that you've dedicated ten years to, he's a little bit down, but he's coping well, he’s a strong boy and he deserves the best, I think he deserves much better," she told Hola!, seemingly confirming the Hemsworth family's view on Miley's latest antics.

But when asked again for more info on Liam's current state, Elsa, who has been married to Chris Hemsworth since 2010, shut the question down, saying she would "prefer not to talk about his private life."
While Elsa was a guest on Sunrise, newsreader Natalie Barr asked the actress, "Tell us, how is Liam doing?"
In response, Pataky briefly laughed and said, "Oh, Liam. Look he’s doing great, but it’s something I prefer not to talk about his private life."
"He’s the one to talk about it. He is happier, he has his family to go and stays with his brothers and best friends. So that's good, and he has spent some time with us," she continued.
Samantha Armytage responded, "That is good to hear. Wonderful."
Prior to her recent comments about Liam deserving better, likely aimed at Miley's recent high-profile relationships, Elsa and Miley were close and even got matching tattoos. Speaking of the singer with Entertainment Tonight in 2016, Elsa said, "She's amazing and my kids love her, and she has an amazing voice."
