Are you ready to say ‘awwww’ for about ten minutes? Don’t say yes unless you really are, okay? I just need to know that you’re prepared to hear an adorable story about Thor: The Dark World. And it’s one that surprisingly doesn’t involve Tom Hiddleston, so don’t get your hopes up in that department.
This one is about Chris Hemsworth, he who is blessed in all things attractiveness and did something really cute and sweet on camera. I haven’t seen Thor, but apparently at the end, Chris leans sensually down to kiss tiny pocket human Natalie Portman as the music swells and the day is saved in the background. (That may be a spoiler, but I have no ideas. And also if you clicked on a post talking about what happens at the end of Thor in the title, I think you know what you’re up against.)
But anyway, this kiss is deep and long and passionate, and in a recent interview for The Daily News, Natalie told us exactly why. Apparently it wasn’t her that Chris was kissing in those final moments of the film — it was his real-life wife and mother of his adorable baby, Elsa Pataky!
“It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film. They put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate.”
So sweet! I kind of love it. Even though Natalie totally negged herself inadvertently when she said ‘that’s why it was so passionate’. I’m sure you’re a good actress too, girl! You spent the whole movie making us believe that the two of your were in love. Well not me, because I didn’t see the movie…but other people, probably!
Regardless, I think this is super cute, and just the sort of caper that Ryan Gosling and I will pull when we are married one day and his costar is unavailable to fly to Hong Kong to film new edits.
