Portman called Hemsworth “a really nice person” and “thoughtful” since she joked that he normally “eats meat like every half hour.”
In a recent interview, Natalie Portman praised Chris Hemsworth for not eating meat before filming a passionate scene for their recent movie.
She called Hemsworth “thoughtful” and “really nice” for not eating meat before their onscreen kiss in the Marvel Cinematic Universe flick “Thor: Love and Thunder.
The actor made the comments on a Capital FM interview with Roman Kemp.
Portman said: “The day we had a kiss scene he didn’t eat meat that morning because I’m vegan. And he eats meat like every half hour. Like, that was so thoughtful.”
Co-star Tessa Thompson, also present for the interview chimed in: “I didn’t even know he could go without eating meat. He’s just like eating bison in the morning. That’s so sweet.”
While Hemsworth is a renowned meat eater, his personal trainer Luke Zocchi did reveal on “Today Extra” – an Australian news and talk show that Hemsworth has adopted a vegan diet while filming “Thor” and “Avengers” in the past.
In fact, Hemsworth’s younger brother, Liam, also went vegan in 2015 but later ditched the diet citing health reasons.
Portman on the other hand has been a long time vegan. She has regularly advocated the diet and used her influence and resources to support vegan businesses.
Earlier in march, the Oscar winner helped Boston-based vegan meat start-up Tender Food develop a whole range of vegan meats after participating in a $12m dollar investment.
Portman’s investment in Tender Food followed a similar investment in La Vie, a French vegan bacon startup.
La Vie successfully secured a total of $28.3 million. The funding has been touted as one of the highest Series A funding amounts in the French mock meat market.
Portman’s other investments include Oatly, mycelium leather firm MycoWorks, vertical farming company Bowery Farming, and Ark Biotech, which builds bioreactors and operating systems for producing cultivated meat at an industrial level.
