Elsa Pataky was born and raised in Madrid, Spain.

Everybody–or anybody who cares to guess–seems to think Pataky is Catholic.12 I agree that if she is religious at all, Catholic is pretty likely considering she grew up in one of the most Catholic countries around.3 But the question is whether or not she’s religious.

Pataky doesn’t have a Twitter account as far as I could tell, so no help there. She doesn’t wear a cross out in public; she doesn’t send out prayers or count her blessings; and if she baptized her kid, the paparazzi never got its gossip-hungry paws on the event.

Maybe she has some Catholic relatives, maybe she went to church on Christmas and Easter when she was a kid, or maybe she didn’t. But it doesn’t appear that Pataky is religious these days. Or political for that matter.

Pataky doesn’t have a thing to say about politics. She’s either really good at keeping her private life private, or she doesn’t engage in the political process. The closest thing to a statement I could pull from Pataky was her support for a breast cancer charity.4 Not very political.

If you have any clues or facts for us to investigate regarding the religion or politics of this actress, please let us know in the comments. Cheers!
