Chris Hemsworth & Natalie Portman: 'Thor' Covers 'FilmInk' November 2013

Chris Hemsworth and his Thor co-star Natalie Portman grace the November 2013 cover of Australia’s FilmInk magazine!

Here’s what the 30-year-old Aussie actor had to share with the mag about the movie:

On playing the character for the third time: “Obviously there’s a huge familiarity and comfort with stepping back into it, but you then hit a whole different challenge with not wanting to repeat what you’ve done, and ensuring that it’s an evolution. That’s a combination of working with the writers and directors and trying to track the story and make it something advanced to what you’ve done. It’s a bit of both, mate.”

On what’s changed about Thor this time around: “Previously, he was vying to be the rightful heir to the throne, and he was trying to prove himself worthy of that, whereas this time round, his responsibility and the weight of that position is now tested. He’s finally now in that position, or about to step into it, and it’s now put to the test – where does your allegiance lie? And your responsibilities – are they on Earth or Asgard? And there’s also the issue of the weight of the burden of the throne, as well as Loki’s involvement. You start to see a conflicted Thor. Loki is the last person in the universe that he wants to go to for help, but he has his back against the wall, and he has no choice.”

On whether Marvel keeps him in the loop: “Not really! I’ve found myself on set reading something on the internet going, ‘Hang on. Is this what’s happening this week?’ And they’ll go, ‘Yes, it is. Sorry that you had to find out this way!’”

    I like Portman and Hemsworth but they have little chemistry and Portman isn’t really right for this role. Still, I’ll watch this on DVD for the space opera/family melodrama angle on SF!

  • Ha

    @Smiley: I agree. I almost cringed when I saw Thor, Natalie Portman’s acting was not credible and they had no chemistry at all, to be honest. I still wanna see this sequel tho

    @Smiley: agree….Portman’s character needs to die in the second one…so the third is going to be better with Sif!!!

    Natalie Portman is not well liked. She is back to square 1 after her undeserved Oscar win. Which is doing supporting roles in franchises and crap indies. She got knocked up by her loser, no-name eurotrash boyrfriend who left his longtime girlfriend for her. People are always making fun of Gwenyth Palthrow for being snooty but Natalie is worse, since she is not classy at all. Atleast Gwenyth husband is A list like her and she has many A list pals. Natalie’s pals are all C list people like Rashida Jones and Natalies hubby is like Kim Kardashian in a way. He became famous for knocking her up and getting all these free perks he would have never gotten with just a regular, non-famous woman. He even defended her 5% dancing, claiming she knew how to dance as if she were dancing for 15 years. Stay in France with your eurotrash Natalie!

    @angelina: Not at square one she did do some movie ok. Natalie married who she wanted to marry and that enough for her . She has a career here not in paris if she decide to do it. She still love loves la and her hometown ny. And she didn’t wait to work like her co- star hayden did. Rachel doing the same thing and its not working. But Natalie is still a smart person to say the least. She has many A- list friends Rachel bilson is the one with no friends to say she is friends with. Just hayden when he comes to visit her and she run behind him when he leave to go to work. Natalie husband don’t run behind her when she rWhen he could been working. Now Rachel discuss that he work or he won’t discuss his work when he is around Rachel. Natalie do discuss her work and afraid to say so. She do have private time and you don’t see her all the time with him at all. Like Rachel did this summer and spring and fall. Hoping that hayden would let her in his move.Good or bad Natalie still have a career even if she move to paris which seem forever that her say that he has a job there. Don’t believe him at all. Hope to get to see this next month. Marriage is not on Rachel bilson mind still using hayden until she find someone like Natalie.
