Adrien Brody began dating Spanish actress Elsa Pataky in 2006. For Pataky’s 31st birthday in July 2007, Brody purchased her a 19th-century farm that was remodeled to look like a castle in Central New York state. Brody and Pataky were featured at their New York home in a 35-page spread for HELLO! magazine in October 2008. The pair broke up in 2009.
Adrien Brody is one of those actors that you don't typically think of when you consider heartthrobs. However, he certainly has appeal, beside the fact he is a phenomenal actor. He's played many superb roles, but I especially adore him in "A Matador's Mistress". True story of this Matador's (Manolete) short life, and the heart-wrenching romance with Lupe Sino (Penelope Cruz). He is soft-spoken, and puppy-dog stricken with her. It is sad to watch, but he plays it so well.
