If it looked like Chris Hemsworth wasn’t just acting during his passionate kiss at the end of the credits on “Thor: The Dark World” – it’s because he wasn’t.
Co-star Natalie Portman revealed to the Daily News that due to a scheduling conflict she couldn’t reprise her role as Thor’s mortal girlfriend in time to film the scene. So a special stunt double filled in – Hemsworth’s real-life wife, “Fast & Furious 6″ actress Elsa Pataky.
“It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film,” Portman told the News.
“And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate.”
The Spanish-born Pataky, who has been married to Hemsworth since 2010 and is now pregnant with their second child, had been traveling with her demi-God and their daughter India at the time anyway.
With the assistance of a few trick camera angles, moviegoers were none the wiser.
“It was such a perfect solution, wasn’t it,” said Portman.
