‘Thor: Love And Thunder’ Premiere: Chris Hemsworth On Thor’s “Adolescent Quality”; Natalie Portman’s “Wild Ride” & Christian Bale’s Fingernail Challenge

Published

on

For fans of Taika Waititi’s take on Thor in Thor: Ragnarok, the premiere of the writer-director’s latest MCU go-round, Thor: Love And Thunder, has been a long time coming. But it seems there may be yet more to come. At the Hollywood premiere on Thursday, its star, Chris Hemsworth said he hopes to continue the role for more films, especially if he can carry on working with Waititi.

“I’ll do it until someone says get off the stage. I love it,” he told Deadline.

Thor is the only MCU character to have four films focused on him. However, executive producer Brian Chapek said somewhat cryptically, “Well I would say he’s the only person so far to get four movies. That’s not necessarily a hint, but it’s not a restriction either.”

Hemsworth’s explanation for the fans’ continuing love for the character was, “There’s an adolescent quality to him, a sense of adventure. And a sort of fun immaturity.”

And, he added, it’s these alluring qualities that exist within Waititi too.

“[Working with Waititi] it’s something different each time, something fresh. And he’s a dear friend. He has the same sort of immature quality I was talking about. In the best way possible.”

For Natalie Portman, reprising her role as Jane Foster, she really appreciated Waititi’s reimagining of the character. In this latest installment Jane has become Thor, hammer and all, plus she’s 6ft tall and muscular.

“Taika imagined this change in Jane and it was a really great proposition that he had to join his wild ride,” Portman said. “It was amazing to get to be challenged with that because I don’t think there’s many people who would cast a 5ft 3 woman as a 6ft character, so it was great to be able to get to imagine how someone who’s that big walks through the world, certainly not the same as me, always looking up at people, who always feels like a kid in every situation.”

For Christian Bale though, his character’s look proved more than a little challenging. In fact, his villainous character Gorr the God Butcher’s long nail extensions almost incapacitated him.

“It rendered me completely incapable of everything. I was pathetic,” he said. “I found myself thinking things like, ‘I don’t think I can walk because I’ve got long nails.’ It affected my brain. I was like, ‘I can’t eat, I’ve got long nails.’ I was trying to type. I couldn’t do anything.”

Fans who saw the movie’s trailer have commented that Gorr looks like rocker Marilyn Manson. Pure coincidence though, because Bale said, “I hadn’t heard that. I was certainly influenced by the look of Nosferatu and I was influenced by another musician, Aphex Twin, and he’s got an incredible video called Come to Daddy, there’s a character in that that Taika and I both enjoyed and he was my reference, even though perhaps the children would have run to the exits screaming had we fully embraced that.”

Sarah Jessica Parker Says To Stop Calling Her “Brave” For Embracing Her Gray Hair, And It’s Opening An Important Conversation About Aging

Published

on

“I can’t spend time getting base color every two weeks. Can’t do it. Nope. Too much.”

In a recent interview with Allure, Sarah Jessica Parker opened up about having gray hair and how women are treated when it comes to aging.

The actor’s recently become associated with the “herringbone highlights” hairstyle, in which multiple shades are woven in between the gray hairs instead of hiding them completely.

But in the interview, she reflects on how images of her having lunch with Andy Cohen went viral last summer because of her hair — even though Andy also had gray hair and is only three years younger than her.

“Andy has a full head of beautiful gray hair,” she says. “But no one mentioned him, sitting right next to me. Not a soul. I’m not angry, it’s just an observation.”

“I try to not see it, but sometimes it penetrates beyond, you know, the blackout…And some of it confounds me because of the double standard that is so plainly illustrated.”

“It became months and months of conversation about how brave I am for having gray hair. I was like, please please applaud someone else’s courage on something!”

When it comes to aging and the obsession with wanting to look younger, Sarah says “I just don’t understand why I’m supposed to be spending that much time thinking about it. It’s not that I’m purposefully dismissive or delusional. But I don’t really ponder it.”

“I don’t think there’s a right or a wrong way to have a relationship with aging, living, time spent on earth. But mine is that there are a million things I want to do with my free time, and none of them have to do with preserving [what I look like] now, or trying to get back to 15 years ago.”

Lori Harvey isn’t letting her breakup with Michael B. Jordan keep her down!

Back in the beginning of June, Lori and the Black Panther actor reportedly called it off after dating for more than a year, according to a source for People. “Michael and Lori are both completely heartbroken,” the insider said. “They still love each other. They had great times together and brought out the best in each other.”

In November, the former lovebirds celebrated their one-year anniversary. Michael took to his IG story to share a series of photos with Lori, and he wrote, “Happy Anniversary. It’s been a year, crazy!!” One month later, he gushed about being in love and how it’s transformed his life. “There are roles that I passed on that I knew I didn’t have enough life experience to play. I was like, ‘What can I pull from?’ But I finally found what love was,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. Long story short, I think it’s just the timing of everything. It was the right time for me. Yeah. I’m happy.”

Lori appeared to co-sign the sentiment, as she opened up about the relationship for POPSUGAR’s Jan/Feb cover story, saying it’s important to start off as friends. “Always communicate. Overcommunicate, even, so you are always on the same page,” Lori said. “Also, be friends first. You know how sometimes you fight with your siblings and, of course, you love them, but you’re like, ‘I don’t even like you right now’? It’s important to always be friends whether you like the person.”

Meanwhile, Lori’s adopted father, Steve Harvey, might be a little crushed by the news after he gave the pairing his stamp of approval. “I don’t speak publicly about this type of stuff, but I’m happy for my daughter right now,” he gushed in September. “I really am. It’s the first time I’ve been happy for her [in a relationship]. He’s just a good guy. If he wasn’t, get him out of here.”
