“It definitely helps you get into character, and it’s definitely changed the way I move. You walk differently; you feel different. I mean, it’s so wild to feel strong for the first time in my life” – Natalie Portman in a Vanity Fair interview pic.twitter.com/vKmeqBWHpw

“It was really fun,” she said as quoted in the report. “I worked with a trainer, Naomi Pendergast, for, I think it was, four months before shooting, and then obviously all the way through filming.”
She added: “We did a lot of weight training and a lot of protein shakes — heavyweight training that I haven’t ever done before.”
The actor said admitted to having never aimed to get into such a physique.
“It was very physical, so it was a lot of both agility work and also strength work,” she said.
Thor: Love and Thunder tells the story of Thor who seeks the help of Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to battle Gorr the God Butcher to save the gods.
Chris Hemsworth will reprise the role of Thor in the upcoming film. Natalie Portman will be seen as Jane Foster / Mighty Thor. Tessa Thompson will appear as Valkyrie.
The film, based on the comics by Stan Lee and Jason Aaron, is directed by Taika Waititi. He has co-written the film alongside Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Stan Lee and Jason Aaron.
It is a joint production by Victoria Alonso, Louis D’Esposito, Kevin Feige and Todd Hallowell.
