Chris Hemwsorth and Natalie Portman share a scene-time kiss in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder.’ Before shooting the sequence, the actor thought of his colleague by changing his daily diet.
Natalie Portman back in Thor: Love and Thunder
Thor: Love and Thunder marks the reunion between the Asgardian god and the Earthling Jane Foster. While we discovered their meeting in 2011 in Thorand that their union continued in Thor: The Dark World (2013), the scientist was sidelined in subsequent films. Whether in Thor: Ragnarok (2017) or other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) productions, the character was, at best, mentioned. But Natalie Portman therefore agreed to return for this new film directed by Taika Waititi and still worn by Chris Hemsworth. Small change all the same for the actress, since this time she obtains powerful powers and becomes mighty thor.
Together, and with Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), they must face the terrible Gorr (Christian Bale). But between two fights, Thor and Jane find time to explain themselves. It must be said thatafter eight years of separationthe former couple necessarily have things to settle.
Chris Hemsworth attentive to his colleague
As one might suspect, this reunion was marked by a kiss between Thor and Jane. Whereas in The world is darkness, Elsa Pataky had come to lend a hand for the same kind of scene (Chris Hemsworth is her companion in the city), this time, it is Natalie Portman who stuck to it. The actress also revealed (via variety) a fun anecdote about the filming of this sequence.
She explains that Chris Hemsworth thought of his colleague before kissing her and abstained from eating meat that day. The actor did this because he knows that Natalie Portman is vegan.
The day we had the kiss scene, he didn’t eat meat in the morning because I’m vegan. And yet he eats meat almost every half hour. It was very thoughtful.
A delicate attention from Chris Hemsworth, although Natalie Portman says she wouldn’t have had the slightest problem if he hadn’t changed his diet. Meaning that she has no no requirements to his colleagues on this.
It’s not something that pisses me off or even cares about, but he was just very caring. He really is a very nice person.
Even if we have fun, and beyond the fact that ecologically Chris Hemsworth’s diet is rather worrying, we imagine that this small restriction will not have been the most difficult test for him. In Thor: Love and Thunderthe actor presents himself again with an impressive physique. Which requires intense trainingas can be seen regularly on his Instagram account.
Thor: Love and Thunder is to be discovered in theaters from July 13, 2022.
