"Chris would come home and say, 'How was your day?' And I didn't feel proud to say: I'm just a mum. But you should. Because it's the hardest but greatest job in the world."
Steering clear of her acting career since 2018, Pataky credits the extra time at home with her children as to why she’s not taking as many roles as she once did. “I really liked being with the kids,” she said. “I wanted to take them to school and pick them up every day. I just love that moment. I didn’t grow up with my parents [around] and I missed that so much, so I wanted to give that to my kids.”
She continued, “I love acting, but having balance is important to me. So if something comes along that fits into my life and lets me work close to home, then I’m happy to do it.”
