As it turns out, Hemsworth didn’t switch up his non-stop meat snacking routine for a fight scene, his workout montage, or even the moment where he’s disrobed by Zeus (Russell Crowe). He did it to support his co-star Natalie Portman.
In the film, Thor’s old flame Jane Foster (Portman) not only returns to his life, but is now wielding Mjolnir as the Mighty Thor. Seeing each other again in battle rekindles some old flames — they chat about how long it’s been in front of a literal house on fire — and they end up smooching later in the film.
Kissing scenes can look so romantic on the big screen, but sometimes later on, actors talk about how icky it actually was. Like when Eva Mendes told Oprah Winfrey about eating a tuna sandwich with extra onions and crushed Doritos before she kissed Will Smith in “Hitch.” Hemsworth has moved further up in the famous Chris rankings by doing the exact opposite. He didn’t eat meat before Thor and Jane’s kiss, because Portman is a vegan.
