USA.- fans of Marvel they were shocked to see Natalie Portman volume up for the next Thor tape, Thor: Love and Thunder. The 41-year-old wields the magical hammer Mjolnir and brings “Mighty Thor” to life for the fourth film in the franchise. The actress recently spoke that the production asked her to gain weight for the role.
In Black Swan, they asked me to be as small as possible,” she explained to Variety. “Here, they asked me to be as big as possible. That’s an incredible challenge, and also a state of mind as a woman.”
The actress worked with a personal trainer for more than 10 months before and during filming starting in the fall of 2020 to change her body. Natalie rebuilt her shoulders and arms and made them muscular. “To have this reaction and be seen as great, you realize, ‘Oh, this must be so different, walking through the world like this,'” she said.
When you’re little, and also, I think, because I started when I was a little girl, a lot of times I feel young or small or, like, the kind of person who pats me on the head. And I also present myself that way, that’s why.”
I mean, it’s always amazing to see yourself, even for a split second, in a Marvel movie, because you’re in places you’ve never been before. It’s like looking at pictures of a vacation you never took or something.”
About the bad reviews of Thor: The Dark World, launched in 2013, said they did not affect him. “I mean, I also had it with The Professional. She was critically butchered, and now, despite having been in Marvel movies and starwarsIt’s the main thing people come to me for.”
That and Star Wars are two examples of things that when they came out, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is a mess.’ And then 20 years later, actually 30 years later for ‘The Professional,’ he’s loved.” Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Russell Crowe, Tessa Thompson and the director Taika Waititi they also appear in Thor: Love and Thunder, which opens in theaters on July 8.
