Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky fast for 16 hours every day.

During an appearance on Spanish talk show El Hormiguero on Tuesday, the Spanish actress was asked about fasting, one of the practices she recommends in her upcoming lifestyle guide STRONG: How to Eat, Move and Live with Strength and Vitality, and she revealed the couple stay fit by going without food for 16 hours each day.

“My husband and I do 16 hours of fasting every day,” she said. “I think it’s the best anti-ageing trick, not taking anything in 16 hours to let your body rest.”

Describing the regime as “very healthy”, the 43-year-old explained that in Australia, where the couple and their three children have lived for years, they eat much earlier than in Spain.

Intermittent fasting has become quite a popular trend in recent years. The 16:8 plan involves fasting for 16 hours and restricting the daily meal intake period to eight hours. For many people, this means not eating anything after dinner and skipping breakfast.

Her comments have sparked backlash on social media, with one user writing, “It’s embarrassing, she is prompting people to have severe nutritional problems. This is anything but healthy,” and another posting, “Elsa Pataky giving health advice. In which university have you studied to recommend fasting and guide on tips to be healthy? Fake news is bad, but fake health news is dangerous.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Pataky shared that she prefers to exercise outdoors and gets in a workout while walking her dogs.

“What I mean is that why not take advantage of going to the beach to take the dogs to, instead of walking, go do leg presses and work the a*s,” she explained. “I do it very much, people look at you, but what else is it? That’s how you work glutes.”

Woody Allen has no intention of retiring from filmmaking despite the controversy surrounding him.

The Annie Hall director has faced a boycott in Hollywood since the rise of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements against sexual misconduct, with many of his former leading men and women vowing never to collaborate with him again and his most recent film, A Rainy Day in New York, being shelved following renewed child abuse allegations made against him by his adopted daughter Dylan.

However, Allen, who has repeatedly denied the allegations, remains undeterred by the controversy surrounding him and plans to continue making films until the day he dies.

“I have never thought of retiring,” Allen said during a press conference on Tuesday, according to reporters at Deadline. “Since I started, I’ve always tried to focus on my work, no matter what happens in my family or with politics. I don’t think about social movements, for example. My cinema is about human relationships, about people. And I try to have humour in them. If I were to die, I would probably die on a film set, which may well happen.”

The press conference was held in San Sebastian in Spain to launch the production of his new movie, which has a working title of Rivkin’s Festival.

The romance-comedy stars Christoph Waltz and Gina Gershon as a married American couple who go to the San Sebastian Film Festival. She has an affair with a French movie director, and he falls in love with a local Spanish woman.

During the press conference, Showgirls actress Gershon explained she was won over by the story, saying, “It’s a beautiful script; a dream come true… These are crazy times; one has to analyse the situation and decide how you feel; I’m delighted to be part of this team.”

Rivkin’s Festival, which also stars Elena Anaya, Sergi Lopez, Wallace Shawn, and Louis Garrel, begins filming in Spain on Wednesday.
