“Chris was not unknown but certainly not as well known as he is today”

Chris Hemsworth has become a fan favorite over the past decade! And he mainly has the MCU to thank for that! Especially since Thor: Ragnarok, he operates on an entirely different planet, movie after movie every year! It turned out to be so much more than Thor, having achieved excellence in action, comedy, and even a bit of drama at times! This is why Hemsworth’s net worth has increased shockingly over the past few years and his love and thunder co-star Natalie Portman can’t help but be jealous!

Chris Hemsworth received a whopping $20 million payday for Thor: Love and Thunder. That’s a $5 million increase after earning $15 million each in his last three MCU outings. And with the insane amount of hard work and popularity he brings to a project, $20 million seems like his regular salary now because he did the same for Extraction 2 as well. So, with those massive paychecks from Marvel and Netflix, his total net worth soared to $140 million.

Natalie Portman’s net worth

Compared to his Thor 4 costar, Portman made well below the 8-figure mark (under $10 million). You’d think someone returning for their final MCU outing would get at least half of what their co-leader did, but apparently that didn’t happen! It’s probably because of this huge pay gap that she initially didn’t want to return to the MCU in Ragnarok. She has starred in some major films since the late 90s and early 2000s (star wars Ep 1,2 & 3; V for Vendetta, Black Swan), yet an Oscar-winning actress like herself just amassed a net worth of $90 million.

It might seem like she’s a bit frozen about the massive rise of Hemsworth, who was relatively anonymous in the first Thor movie. But she was still quite grateful that her 39-year-old man Thor co-star managed to achieve in a short time. In her interview with IMDb, here’s what she had to say about Hemsworth:

” At first [Thor], [Chris] was kind of like that not unknown but certainly not as well known as he is today the actor who got that big role. And he was so nice, so talented, so hardworking. And now, after all that success and all that fame, he’s the exact same human. It’s one person’s dream.

Well, saved Nattie! Well saved!
