I’ve made a sum-up of the talk-shows Natalie went to those past days and weeks to promote Thor. Enjoy the HQs I’ve added to the gallery and a particular thank you to Luciana for donating most of the ones from Letterman.
Thor’s female lead, Natalie Portman, became Hollywood’s most bankable star after winning an Oscar for Black Swan. She talks nerves, motherhood and her Jewish faith
Natalie Portman is raving about working in Britain. “It’s amazing to see how robust the British film industry is,” says the actress, who recently spent several months in Surrey making her latest film, Thor: The Dark World.
“I think I’ve shot in England more than anywhere else in the world, between doing Star Wars, Closer, V for Vendetta, The Other Boleyn Girl and Your Highness. For Thor I stayed in Ascot, which was really beautiful.”
Now 32, Portman has been acting professionally since she was 11 and is accustomed to working with cinema’s brightest and best: George Lucas in the Star Wars prequels, Woody Allen in Everyone Says I Love You, Mike Nichols in Closer.
In 2011 she won the best actress Oscar for her complex portrayal of the deeply disturbed ballerina in Black Swan, and Forbes magazine recently named her the film industry’s “most bankable star”. Studio executives and her PR team treat her like royalty.
Absolutely stunning Natalie went to Berlin for the premiere of Thor: The Dark World (Kingdom for Germany) in her Dior Haute Couture white gown dress, enjoy the over 200 HQs I found and added to the gallery.

Although Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World offers a more expansive view of the world of Asgard, the role of scientist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and her intern Darcy (Kat Dennings) is expanded in turn, with the pair now having relocated to London.
Digital Spy caught up with Portman and Dennings earlier this week to discuss their Bechdel Test-passing relationship on-screen.
“All the [Marvel] films, and specifically Thor, have really strong female characters who have all their own stuff going on, their own spheres, their own jobs and interests,” Dennings mused.
Portman went on to speak about the new experience of working with Anthony Hopkins, with whom she didn’t share scenes in 2011′s Thor.
