Chris Hemsworth was actually kissing his wife in Thor: The Dark World’s kissing scene


This is a slight spoiler if you haven’t seen Thor: The Dark World. And if you haven’t seen the movie yet, what are you waiting for?

During the end-credits scene, Jane Foster sees Thor transported back to Earth. They both walk towards each other and share a very passionate kiss. It turns out that Chris Hemsworth wasn’t kissing Natalie Portman. The lucky gal is actually his wife, Elsa Pataky, who can be seen playing Vin Diesel’s love interest in Fast Five.

I know what you’re thinking, “Is Hemsworth’s wife so jealous that she only wants him to kiss her in movies?” There’s a good explanation for that. The scene was actually a pickup shot, and since Portman wasn’t near Hemsworth for the shoot, they had Pataky wear a wig that resembles Portman’s hair.

“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,” said Portman to the Daily News. “They put his wife [actress Elsa Pataky] in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate.”

I have to say, Chris Hemsworth is a lucky Norse god.
