Natalie Portman: Why Chris Hemsworth’s Wife was My Body Double for ‘Thor’ Love Scene

Want to hear something crazy? Chris Hemsworth’s actual real-life wife Elsa Pataky was Natalie Portman’s body double during the steamy kissing scenes in Thor: The Dark World.

How crazy is that? It's not even acting at this point! Wait, does that make us pervs for having seen it?

Natalie herself told the New York Daily News that she couldn’t make it to the reshoots (where the kissing scene was going to be filmed) so Elsa was like, “I’ll do it.”

“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. And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate,” Natalie revealed.

Thanks to a wig and some camera angles, the scene worked out perfectly.

“It was such a perfect solution, wasn’t it,” said Natalie.

The scene in question occurs after the credits roll, when Thor comes back to Earth and kisses Natalie/Elsa on her doorstep.
