‘I always tell women not to get scared [of] being muscly because it keeps everything up when you get older and everything starts sagging. So the only way to keep it up is the muscle,’ she said

The Thor star also shared a series of photos of his wife, including pictures of them together.

In an interview with news.com.au’s body+soul in December 2019, Elsa revealed the secret to her youthful appearance.

‘I always tell women not to get scared [of] being muscly because it keeps everything up when you get older and everything starts sagging. So the only way to keep it up is the muscle,’ she said.

The mum-of-three also credited intermittent fasting with helping her maintain a youthful glow, and said Chris’ mum, Leonie, 60, had been a huge inspiration.

‘The first person we knew who started [intermittent fasting] really strict was Chris’ mum, actually. She just looks amazing! She’s 60 almost, 59, and every year looks even better…’ she said at the time.

But despite her youthful good looks, Elsa added that she was loving being in her 40’s, calling it ‘the best age’: ‘I would never go back to my 20’s, I like this age. Like everybody says, your 40’s are like the new 20’s and I feel like this is true.’
