The passionate kiss at the end of "Thor: The Dark World" wasn't really between co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, it was between Hemsworth and his wife, Elsa Pataky!
"It was for reshoots and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn't get there because I was working on my own film, and so they put his wife in my wig and costume. That's why it was so passionate," Portman told the New York Daily News.
Fortunately, Pataky was travelling with Hemsworth and their daughter, India, and agreed to stage the kiss. With some fancy lights and a wig, she looked pretty believable!
