Natalie Portman couldn't make reshoots, so Elsa Pataky stuck a wig on.

Luckily for Mr Hemsworth, it was his wife.

“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,” she told the New York Daily News.

“And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that's why it was so passionate."

It was thanks to some cunning camera angles that the switch appeared to be seamless.

“It was such a perfect solution, wasn’t it?” added Portman.
