  • "Thor: Love and Thunder" star Natalie Portman gushed about working with Chris Hemsworth.

  • In an interview, Portman said her costar didn't eat meat before filming a kiss because she's vegan.

  • Portman called Hemsworth "thoughtful" and "a very nice person."

Natalie Portman said that her "Thor: Love and Thunder" costar Chris Hemsworth was so considerate of her being a vegan that he purposely avoided eating meat prior to filming a kissing scene.

"He's really nice. He's really a good guy," Portman said in a new interview with costar Tessa Thompson for "Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp."

"The day we had a kiss scene he didn't eat meat that morning because I'm vegan. And he eats meat like every half hour. Like, that was so thoughtful. That's not something I'm angry about or care about, but he was just being thoughtful. He's a very nice person," Portman said.

"I didn't even know he could go without eating meat. He's just, like, eating bison in the morning. That's so sweet," Thompson, who plays Valkyrie in the film, said in response.

Portman and Thompson's comments were sparked by host Roman Kemp asking if Hemsworth, his "man-crush," has any flaws.

Thompson said that, even when the Australian actor is occasionally grumpy or hangry, "he's still sweet."

"Thor: Love and Thunder," which is now in theaters, shows the titular God of Thunder reuniting with Dr. Jane Foster — Portman's role — his ex, approximately eight years, seven months, and six days after their last encounter.

This time around, Jane becomes Mighty Thor when she wields his famous hammer, Mjølnir. The two characters team up, along with Valkyrie and Korg — played by Taika Waititi — to stop a new villain named Gorr the God Butcher, played by Christian Bale.

For the fourth installment of the "Thor" franchise, the studio asked Portman to work out and get as large as possible. In addition to weight training and cardio, she consumed copious amounts of protein shakes.

Meanwhile, Hemsworth, who's been playing Thor since the first film was released in 2011, put on even more muscle.

He achieved a larger physique by eating every two hours for a steady caloric intake and training twice a day, according to Bobby Holland Hanton, Hemsworth's stunt double.
