Natalie Portman talks Tom Hiddleston


When ELLE cover star Tom Hiddleston interviewed ELLE cover star Natalie Portman, she told him how much she enjoyed hitting him in the face while filming Thor: The Dark World ("Oh my god, it was so good"). He enjoyed it too, btw. "It was really fun" he told us. Who knew their tastes ran in that direction?

Now Natalie has expanded on her feelings for Tom, who was named Man of The Year at the ELLE Style Awards. Surprise surprise, they're pretty much in line with every right-thinking straight woman in the known universe (and the Asgardian one for that matter).

"Tom is wonderful," she says. "He plays Loki [the god of Mischief] and he’s just an incredible actor who finds so much humor in his evil. He’s also fun to be around, and he and Chris [Hemsworth] have a great rapport with each other. They’ve got sort of a brotherly thing. They really enjoy each other and annoy each other in a loving, joking way. It’s fun to be around.”

Portman has equally kind words to say about Chris, who plays epoymous hero Thor: "He’s really got the best energy. He is so enthusiastic about the work and so sweet to work with and so good."

Franky, that's one family we would sell our real one to be part of.

Thor: The Dark World is out on DVD and Blu-Ray now
