Even Pataky admits that she doesn't know everything when it comes to health, and her favourite part of creating Strong was being able to learn herself along the way.
"You have this opportunity to meet so many interesting people that have all this information," she says of the new book, which was released this week. "And you just sometimes want to share that and people that can get to that information, to be easy for them to know a little bit more. Even about the way of eating the carbs, what is good, what is not, what exercise is my favourite or the people are recommending right now."
Pataky now calls Byron Bay home, alongside her husband and three children. You may have heard of him? Australian actor Chris Hemsworth. It's here that Pataky gets to forget the madness of her entertainment life, and reconnect with what makes her happy.
"I always say, that it's just you with yourself, doing something that you are passionate about. And if it's outside and at the same time, it's doing some exercises, great. I love either of them, like horse riding is one of my favourite things, it's like a meditation for me. Or just having a little moment of yoga or meditation. I think it's just good, just a moment for yourself."
