A few days ago, Natalie Portman, who plays Dr. Jane Foster in Marvel’s Thor franchise, revealed on a British radio an unusual fact that Chris Hemsworth did for her before kissing in a scene from Thor: Love and Thunder.
She is vegan, and Chris follows a strict diet whereby he has to eat meat ten times a day to maintain his muscles but to record the kiss sequence, he skipped it: “The day we had a kiss scene, I didn’t eat meat that morning because I’m vegan. Maybe he didn’t eat it in case he had any ‘paluego’ left,. And he eats meat like every half hour. It’s not something that makes me mad or care, but he was being thoughtful. He was so considerate!”
According to Chris’s trainer, Luke Zocchi, in order for the actor to maintain his muscles, he needs about 4,500 calories a day, in addition to following a very intense and specific exercise routine.
In an interview for The Sunday Times, Nicole Portman stated that she had to bulk up for ten months to shoot the film: “It’s very unusual and wonderful that you’re tasked with getting bigger as a woman.”
