They’re long-time pals who have been able to spend more time together thanks to their husbands filming the upcoming blockbuster Thor: Love and Thunder.

But on Saturday, Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky appeared a little downcast while heading on a brunch date with Matt Damon’s partner Luciana Barroso at Byron Bay’s Roadhouse café.

Elsa, 44, and Luciana, 45, were seen  sharing a number of comforting embraces as they sat down to enjoy a bottle of the popular health drink Kombucha.

The duo appeared to have a serious discussion as they sat at the table, before Elsa threw her arms around her pal and they hugged in the outdoor seating area.

They then shared a few smiles, before later enjoying a brief stroll down the street and embracing once again before going their separate ways.

For the outing, Elsa looked effortlessly chic in a turtleneck jumper, grey trousers and white trainers with a built-in wedge heel.
