If you didn’t know, Natalie will be the first female to play the iconic character – and will not be going by “Lady Thor.”

“She’s actually The Mighty Thor. The comics had the female Thor when Jane becomes Thor, and she’s The Mighty Thor,” Natalie clarified.

“We haven’t started. More time to get jacked. Which I have not. I’ve got the carbo-loading down, but not the exercise part,” Natalie explained of the upcoming film schedule, which was postponed amid the global health crisis.

She went on to say she is “very excited” for the new film, which she said will begin shooting in Australia in early 2021.

“Obviously everything is weird because of pandemic time, who knows what’s happening. It will be exciting and I’m interested to see if I can gain muscle.”

She also revealed her favorite Marvel character: Tessa Thompson‘s Valkyrie, who will also appear in Thor: Love and Thunder.

“Major love for that woman,” she said of Tessa. Check out some photos of Natalie teasing the role with the iconic hammer…

Natalie Portman Pledges to Match Charity Donations Up to $100,000

Natalie Portman is celebrating her 39th birthday by giving back.

In honor of her birthday on Tuesday (June 9), the Oscar winner announced she would be matching donations to the A New Way of Life charity up to $100,000 in order to help women adjusting to life after incarceration.

“For my birthday this year, I will be matching donations to Susan Burton’s @anewwayoflifela, up to $100k,” Natalie wrote on Instagram. “I am in deepest gratitude for Susan’s work, which helps heal our broken world. Ever since I first read Susan Burton’s book Becoming Ms. Burton, I’ve been committed to supporting her organization A New Way of Life — which provides formerly incarcerated women with a safe place to sleep and a chance to rebuild their lives.”

Natalie went on to explain the organization’s impact and how it helps women rebuild their life after being released from prison.

“The vast majority of these women have children and are victims of sexual or physical assault,” Natalie continued. “Often, when they are released, they have no resources and the cycle of entrapment within the criminal justice system continues. While there are so many great organizations fighting for racial justice, @anewwayoflifela is Susan’s solution to ending mass incarceration and healing communities. Please join me today in supporting @anewwayoflifela if you’re able ❤️”

Find out why Natalie said she initially “feared” the defund the police movement.

Natalie Portman Initially Felt Fear from 'Defund the Police' Campaign, But Now Supports It

Natalie Portman is opening up about the first reaction she had when she heard the phrase “defund the police” and how she now supports the campaign.

“When I first heard #defundthepolice, I have to admit my first reaction was fear. My whole life, police have made me feel safe. But that’s exactly the center of my white privilege: the police make me as a white woman feel safe, while my black friends, family and neighbors feel the opposite: police make them feel terror. And for good reason,” the Oscar-winning actress wrote on Instagram.

Natalie continued, “Police are the 6th leading cause of death for black men in this country. These are not isolated incidents. They are patterns and part of the system of over-policing of black Americans. Reforms have not worked. Minneapolis, where George Floyd was murdered, is one of the most progressive police forces in the country, having undergone extensive anti-bias training.”

“I am grateful to the leaders in the @mvmnt4blklives who have made us question the status quo,” Natalie said. “And who have made us imagine, what a world could be like in which we invested in nourishing people; (in their education, healthcare, environment, shelter)— rather than putting all of our money into punishment. I’ve gotten to the age in my life, where if my gut feels uncomfortable, I take the situation as wrong. But this concept initially made me uncomfortable because I was wrong. Because the system that makes me feel comfortable is wrong.”

Natalie also shared some resources that you can see in the Instagram embed below.

Last month, Natalie shared a rare photo of her two children.

Natalie Portman Kicks Off CHLA's Make March Matter Campaign With Danielle Fishel

Natalie Portman has some fun with a group of children during Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ 5th annual “Make March Matter” fundraising campaign kick-off on Monday (March 2) in Los Angeles.

The 38-year-old actress joined Danielle Fishel at the event which raises awareness for the month-long initiative that empowers local businesses to rally community participation to raise $2 million in March in support of children’s health in Los Angeles and the Coachella Valley.

“I’m so grateful to the kindness of every single person that works here and the incredible energy here that is putting children first and serving our entire community,” Natalie shared during the event, while speaking of her connection to CHLA.

Danielle added that CHLA is where her son Adler was treated for Chylothorax, a rare lung condition.

“We never once had to worry about Adler’s care while we were here and for that we are eternally grateful. Adler is now 8 ½ months old and he is an absolute joy.”

Natalie Portman Responds to Rose McGowan Slamming Her Oscars Dress

Natalie Portman is reacting to Rose McGowan‘s criticism.

After Rose referred to Natalie‘s 2020 Oscars dress, which featured the names of female directors in protest of the lack of female nominations, as “offensive to those of us who actually do the work,” Natalie issued a response on Wednesday (February 12).

“I agree with Ms. McGowan that it is inaccurate to call me ‘brave’ for wearing a garment with women’s names on it. Brave is a term I more strongly associate with actions like those of the women who have been testifying against Harvey Weinstein the last few weeks, under incredible pressure,” she said in a statement.

“The past few years have seen a blossoming of directing opportunities for women due to the collective efforts of many people who have been calling out the system. The gift has been these incredible films. I hope that what was intended as a simple nod to them does not distract from their great achievements. It is true I’ve only made a few films with women. In my long career, I’ve only gotten the chance to work with female directors a few times – I’ve made shorts, commercials, music videos and features with Marya Cohen, Mira Nair, Rebecca Zlotowski, Anna Rose Holmer, Sofia Coppola, Shirin Neshat and myself. Unfortunately, the unmade films I have tried to make are a ghost history,” she went on to say.

“If these films do get made, women face enormous challenges during the making of them. I have had the experience a few times of helping get female directors hired on projects which they were then forced out of because of the conditions they faced at work. After they are made, female-directed films face difficulty getting into festivals, getting distribution and getting accolades because of the gatekeepers at every level. So I want to say, I have tried, and I will keep trying. While I have not yet been successful, I am hopeful that we are stepping into a new day.”
