Jane Foster takes the lead. In a few days – on July 13 – the fourth installment of Thor, entitled Thor: Love and Thunder, will be released in theaters. Episode in which the Nordic god’s companion becomes a superhero in turn. “Before, Jane was a courageous scientist, whom Thor had to save in case of danger. Now she is on her own,” rejoices her interpreter, Natalie Portman in the columns of Télé 7 Jours this Monday, July 4. And to develop: “When she fights alongside him, they form a formidable team, but Jane also has poignant motivations, very interesting to interpret”.
But for this new Marvel film, Natalie Portman who inherits Mjolnir, the famous hammer of Thor, had to transform physically. “Usually, actresses go to the gym to stay lean and toned, but here I had to work ten months to change my build and build muscle,” she told our colleagues. Helped by a trainer and stuntmen, the actress has been transformed. Above all, she “loved learning to [se] fight”. A role that caused a sensation with his children: Aleph, 11 years old as well as Amalia, five and a half years old. “They thought it was cool, but what really excited them was seeing me play against the alien Korg, their favorite Marvel character!”, she laughs. And to launch in a burst of laughter: “It is he who allowed me to earn points with my offspring!”
What Natalie Portman thinks of Chris Hemsworth
While she was absent from the third episode of Thor, Natalie Portman took pleasure in returning to this franchise. And to give the answer again to his playing partner, Chris Hemsworth. “I am flabbergasted by his talent! Chris goes effortlessly from a dramatic scene to moments of delirious comedy”, explains the companion of Benjamin Millepied. So much so that turning this shutter was not easy, since she had to prevent herself from laughing out loud. “He invents such funny lines! I held myself back so as not to burst out laughing in the middle of the shots…”, she confirms. “Amazed by what he was doing”, Natalie Portman had to “focus on not being a mere spectator”. Something to make the mouths of fans…
