If you thought Chris Hemworth's wife, Elsa Pataky, was going to let her husband kiss Natalie Portman, well, I did too, but apparently she didn't. New York Daily News reports:

If it looked like Chris Hemsworth wasn’t just acting during his passionate kiss at the end of the credits on “Thor: The Dark World” – it’s because he wasn’t. Co-star Natalie Portman revealed to the Daily News that due to a scheduling conflict she couldn’t reprise her role as Thor’s mortal girlfriend in time to film the scene. So a special stunt double filled in – Hemsworth’s real-life wife, "Fast & Furious 6" actress Elsa 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.”

I mean, I guess this sounds romantic and all, but what's the point of being a huge movie star if you have to kiss your wife at work? It's like being tired of eating cereal at home so you leave and go to a cereal restaurant. It just doesn't make sense. I mean, I like cereal. But sometimes I like cereal with a nicer ass than the cereal I have at home.
