Natalie Portman Cast In 'Thor' Because She's Impossibly Short

I love this clip from The Graham Norton show for several reasons. 1) Natalie Portman claims that she was cast in Thor because the juxtaposition between her and Chris Hemsworth’s physical stature made Thor look huge (the evidence demonstrated bears that out); 2) because Portman and Hemsworth are just as awkward and chemistry-free here as they are in Thor; 3) because Katy Perry, who is sitting on the guest couch along with Paul McCartney, looks positively bored because she is not being talked about in that moment, and 4) the not-so-subtle blow job gag Graham Norton made with the Thor action figures.
