Natalie Portman might be Chris Hemsworth‘s costar, but Chris’ life partner, Elsa Pataky, got to give him an onscreen smooch!
Co-star Natalie Portman revealed to Daily News that due to a scheduling conflict, she couldn’t reprise her role as Thor’s mortal girlfriend in time to film the final scene of Thor: The Dark World. So a special stunt double cane to the rescue…Hemsworth’s real-life wife (and Fast & Furious 6 actress) Pataky!
“It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film,” Portman told the News. “And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate.”
The Spanish-born Pataky and Hemsworth married in 2010, and now they have a second kid on the way! Elsa was traveling with Liam at the time, anyway, so it just…worked out!
Kinda romantic…and fun!

Evan Rachel Wood speaks out via Twitter…in a GOOD way!
Charlie Countryman, the new film starring Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood, is going through a controversy with the MPAA akin to Blue Valentine from a couple years ago. Apparently, there is a scene in the film that involves pleasuring Wood’s character. And wouldn’t you know, the MPAA wants to slap Charlie Countryman with an NC-17 rating if the scene isn’t cut or re-edited. The director already tried to please the ratings board by editing the scene, and screened it for Evan. She was NOT happy about the new cut, saying via Twitter:
“After seeing the new cut of #CharlieCountryman I would like 2 share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a woman’s sexuality once again. The scene where the two main characters make “love” was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people “uncomfortable” but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered.”
“This is a symptom of a society that wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex, especially when (gasp) the man isn’t getting off as well! It’s hard for me to believe that had the roles been reversed it still would have been cut OR had the female character been raped it would have been cut.
“It’s time for people to GROW UP. Accept that women are sexual. Accept that some men like pleasuring women. Accept that women don’t have to just be f–ked and say thank you…We are allowed and entitled to enjoy ourselves. It’s time we put our foot down…Thanks for listening.”

Oh man, this rant is amazing, true and more of it is needed. Hollywood needs to knock off this particular brand of anti-feminist conservativism IMMEDIATELY. Thoughts?

In real life, Josh Hutcherson
could go another way…so, when asked which of his Catching Fire
costars he would go gay for, who do you think he chose?
I mean, Liam Hemsworth is an obvious choice, as are sexy new castmembers Sam Claflin and Alan Ritchson. But NO- Joshy didn’t choose any of these in fact, his choice is surprising and definitely sexy! Find out who, after the jump!
Who did Josh Hutcherson pick? Why the ABSOLUTELY sexy Lenny Kravitz, of course! Said Josh:
“I’d probably say Lenny. Only because, like, the cool, like, artist kind of thing. And he’s just rock and roll through and through. That is just… he’s got it goin’ on.”
Agreed, Josh. AGREED!
