[edit] Acting career With the success of Al Salir de Clase, Pataky received her first film offer, El Arte de Morir. Some of her subsequent films were co-productions with the UK and France, which introduced her to working in English and French. Pataky has appeared in over ten Spanish films and most recently crossed over into the French market with her co-starring role in the 2004 box office hit, Iznogoud. She also appeared in a supporting role in the David Ellis-directed film Snakes on a Plane (2006), alongside Samuel L. Jackson. She is currently receiving good reviews for her work in the Spanish film Ninette, helmed by Oscar winner José Luis Garci. [edit] Personal life Pataky enjoys rollerblading, snowboarding, and horseback riding. She is dating American actor Adrien Brody.[1] [edit] Quotes "I don’t think Sam [Samuel L. Jackson] liked the snakes very much. I think I was the only one who did. I love them! There was a room on the set that housed the snakes—we worked with at least 400 of them for the movie—and you could go and visit them whenever you wanted. So when I was waiting around the set, I’d hang out with the snake handlers." (This bio came from Wikipedia.com)
