Natalie Portman Revealed She Felt Like She Didn't Fit In on 'Thor: Love & Thunder' Set

While speaking with Vogue Australia, Natalie revealed that since her costars, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, and director Taika Waititi, had all worked together on the previous film, Ragnarok, she sort of felt like an outsider.

“It’s so strange when something is very familiar but also, you’re kind of the new kid,” she shared. “Because Chris and Tessa and Taika had worked together on Ragnarok, and so successfully and so it was like they were all reuniting and I was this newbie in there trying to figure out how to fit in.”

Natalie continued, “But also they’re just the nicest people, and also I know Chris and Tessa so well from previous work together, and also I had done Thor movies twice before. So there was a lot of familiarity and comfort in that world too, but it was this weird mix of being the veteran and the newbie at the same time. I was there at the beginning. But at the same time, you’re the outsider to this group.”

She also revealed the one co-star that her favorite scenes were with – Tessa!

“There’s this love and partnership that we have in real life that I think comes into our scenes together,” Natalie said. “And to see that kind of sisterhood reflected on screen, I think, mirrored our real experience on set, where it was such a nice thing to be able to look to my girlfriend and be like, ‘What’s happening here! I’m feeling this, are you feeling that too?’ Just someone you can laugh with and talk things over with in your workplace.”

In another recent interview, Natalie opened up about bulking up for her role.

Thor: Love & Thunder will open on Friday, July 8.
