We all remember Chris Hemsworth’s wonderful acting as Thor, the god of thunder, storms and lightning, in the two movies based on the Marvel Comics. We also remember Natalie Portman as playing his human love interest and their sensual kiss at the end of the last movie.
However, Hemsworth didn’t actually kiss Portman in that scene. Since Natalie was engaged in another project at the time that producers wanted to film some more shots, she wasn’t able to be present at the filming of the additional scenes. Instead, the crew opted for Chris’ wife, Elsa Pataky. The 37 year old Spanish actress and model was dressed in Jane Porter’s clothes and was given the wig that Portman was supposed to wear.
The producers ended up using the scene with Chris’ wife in the final version of the movie.
