Because now I need a tumblr just to reblog and post all my Tom Hiddleston things. There are too many :)
Well it has something to do with self-esteem.
Hiddleston said that when they were shooting the fight scene, “Joss [Whedon, the director] came over and said, ‘Guys, I’m just not really buying it. You need to sell it more. You either need to hit each other harder or you need to react bigger.’” As they readied for the next take, Hiddleston took a moment to confer with Hemsworth. “I said to Chris, ‘Dude, just hit me. Just hit me because I’m protected here and it’s fine.’ He’s like, ‘Are you sure?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, it will look great. Just go for it.’”
Cameras then started to roll, and Hiddleston said, “[Chris] really went for it and he’s just pummeling me in the chest and elbowing me in the face and Joss came back after that take and went, ‘We got it. It’s great.’”
I asked Hemsworth about his reaction to actually hitting his costar. Hemsworth chuckled and recalled there was a moment when Hiddleston doubled over a bit when a body blow connected. He told me, “I turned to the crew and I said, ‘He told me to do that! You all heard that.’”
