Elsa Pataky proves—yet again—that she should probably just live in swimwear in the latest issue of Women's Health U.K.

The mother of three opened up about how keeping fit is one of her top priorities and how she and hubby Chris Hemsworth help each other stay on track.

"Chris is a really good cook. Often, I'll put the kids to bed and he'll cook. He does really good meat and fish, amazing salads. And soups! When we're in London [when Chris was filming Rush in 2012], he had to lose weight and every night it'd be a new vegetable soup—he's really good at it!"

She added that being married to the world's sexiest man has its perks, but she doesn't let the title get to his head.

"It's funny when it's your husband. For me, sexy is the inside of someone. Of course I think he's beautiful and fit, but I will never tell him that because he will get too, how do you say, 'cocky'? He'll be like, 'What do you think of that?' And I'll say, 'Well, I've been the sexiest woman in Spain for a lot of years.' It's all just a joke, though."

Pataky also explained that she and her hubby encourage each other to be their fittest and use a healthy dose of competition to motivate one another.

"When he was training for Thor, he came home with this body fat measurer—you know, where you clip the parts where you accumulate fat? So it became a competition between us. If I had some far somewhere I'd be like, 'Grr, I'm working that part.' It's fun, it's just like a challenge, for no other reason than I like to challenge myself."

And if it means looking anything like her, challenge accepted.
