Natalie Portman returns to Marvel’s beloved franchise in Thor: Love and Thunder. This time, she even slips into a superhero costume.

Natalie Portman (41) has taken on memorable roles throughout her career. In the 90s, the youngster, then only 13 years old, starred in “Léon – Der Profi”. She had her breakthrough role as Padmé in “Star Wars” episodes I through III. In 2011, Portman won an Oscar for her performance as ballet dancer Nina in Black Swan. For her latest film “Thor: Love and Thunder”, the Jane Foster actress slips into a superhero costume for the first time.

“It’s so lucky when you’re asked if you want to play a superhero. It’s an extremely rare opportunity for everyone,” the 41-year-old says in an interview with Spot News Agency. on news. In the first two “Thor” films, she played famed astrophysicist Dr. Jane Foster, who falls in love with Thor, the god of thunder (Chris Hemsworth, 38).

Natalie Portman Loves Taika Waititi’s ‘Sense of Humor’

Portman did not appear in Part 3 of the Thor: Day of Decision series. His return in the fourth installment was therefore something very special. “I loved ‘Thor: Decision Day.’ It’s one of my favorite MCU movies, if not my favorite. It was so exciting that Taika [Waititi] asked me if I wanted to be part of ‘Love and Thunder’.” Working with director Taika Waititi (46) has been a lot of fun. “I love his sense of humor,” admits Portman.

To represent the female version of the muscular Thor, Portman has prepared enough. For a few months, she worked with a personal trainer and supported her workouts with protein shakes. In the end, however, the actress of 1.60 m was a little duped. “There was a lot of cinematic magic involved, of course,” she openly admits.

Shooting in Australia was a privilege

The mother-of-two particularly enjoyed filming this time around. The film was shot in Australia. “I loved working in Australia. The people were so amazing and the teams were so amazing. The country is so beautiful, one of the most beautiful places in the world,” Portman recalled. It was a privilege to be able to travel to Australia during the pandemic – after all, the country was known for its strict entry requirements at the time: “When we were there, we lived an almost completely normal life together, having been in the United States, yes been locked out the whole time.”

Portman celebrated her birthday while filming. “I turned 40 while I was making the movie. Reaching this milestone as a superhero is truly a once-in-a-lifetime fortune. It was truly an incredible opportunity that I had,” the Hollywood star says gratefully. She also got to spend a lot of time with her kids on set. Waititi has created a “child-friendly environment” there. “My kids loved it. They were like, ‘Mom, can you just make movies like this?'” Portman laughs.

Natalie Portman soon to be a voice actor in an animated film?

The outcome for Portman is not yet known. However, the versatile still has some ideas when it comes to his film career. “I really want to make an animated film. I would love to do a dubbing there,” she enthuses. She also wants to do comedies more often in the future, but Portman says she hasn’t done much yet.

“Thor: Love and Thunder” can be seen in German cinemas from July 6.
