Thor: Love and Thunder Star Natalie Portman Slams Shut Pregnancy Rumors, Hits Out Body Shaming

Thor: Love and Thunder star speaks out over the rumors that she is pregnant and she definitely has no time for body-shamers as the new wielder of the Mjolnir proves herself more worthy of picking up the mighty hammer of Thor.

Following the June 2019 announcement that her character, Jane Foster, will be handling the mantle of the new wielder of Mjolnir, Natalie Portman confirms her MCU return in Thor: Love and Thunder with Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, and Christian Bale's New Villain, Gorr the God Butcher.

Recently, Page Six posted paparazzi photos of Natalie Portman suggesting that the Oscar-winning actress went out with a baby bump in Sydney while en route to the set of Thor: Love and Thunder.


A strong independent woman that she is, Natalie Portman backlashed with a response saying that she is definitely not pregnant and that no one should comment on the body shape of any woman. Her words "Do better" slams shut the pregnancy rumors and pose a direct call-out to body shamers.

Various actors like Beyonce, Lizzo, Kourtney Kardashian, Lili Reinhart, Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, and more have since been calling out body shamers who notoriously comment on women's bodies and body types calling them either pregnant or something similar to that.

The love-interest-turned-superhero of Thor definitely proves herself even more worthy to wield the ever so powerful Mjolnir with her support in women who choose the be successful on their own right, in their own pace, in their own time.

Aside from being an award-winning actress since her epic adaptation of Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars Saga, Natalie Portman also holds a degree in psychology from Harvard University. Indeed, a beauty, brains, and confidence all in one strong woman.

Natalie Portman's Jane Foster will return for Thor: Love and Thunder in its theatrical release scheduled on May 6, 2022.
