Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: The Dark World characters share a passionate kissing scene at the end of the film. But Portman told the New York Daily News that there’s a reason the scene was so steamy— she wasn’t in it! Instead, Hemsworth’s real-life wife, actress Elsa Pataky, threw on a wig and filled in for Portman.
“It was for reshoots and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film,” Portman explained. “And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate. It was such a perfect solution, wasn’t it,”
