The final kissing scene for Thor 2: The Dark World was shot during retakes after the main filming was finished, but Natalie Portman, who portrays Thor’s love interest Jane Foster, wasn’t able to make it. ‘It was for reshoots and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film,’ the actress said. Since Natalie wasn’t available, Chris’ wife Elsa Pataky was asked to stand in, and the kissing scene was pulled off with the help of some tricky camera angles. “And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate. It was such a perfect solution, wasn’t it,” said Natalie.
I feel really bad for the sea lion that Seaworld forces to approach his/her natural predator.
Is it bad that I’m laughing extremely hard at how the orca just annihilates the sea lon in the 2nd gif?
all I can hear is NYOOM
You wanna know something cool? Recent studies of orcas seem to show that during the seal breeding season, they knowingly limit their intake of seals. In fact, there are documented cases of orcas gently grabbing seal pups and pulling them into shore to keep them safe from being eaten.
Why? You might wonder.
The case studies seem to say that the orcas know that no baby seals growing up means less seals next year. They are so intelligent that they’re aware of their own impact as a predatory species on their prey and actively work to conserve the number of that prey species for the future. Maybe we could learn something about moderation and conservation from these animals.
I’m telling you, orcas are smarter than us. And yet some people see no problem in treating them like circus clowns.
