After getting beefed up in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, Natalie Portman has certainly reached the right physical conditioning to take on a challenge in the wild with Bear Grylls. However, the actress has limits when it comes to the British presenter’s survival techniques.
Portman was invited by the Grylls program to explore the southern Utah canyon region in the United States. In addition to having learned to go up and down super steep rock formations, the Marvel star discovered how to get drinking water if one day you get lost in this landscape: filtering the drink with your underwear and then boiling it.
A clip from the program posted by the websites Entertainment Weekly and People shows the moment that Grylls teaches the kludge and despairs Portman. “Oh yes. We have water!” exclaims the former British Special Forces serviceman as he stumbles upon an earthy puddle on a stony path.
The ‘Black Swan’ actress asks – with a little laugh – if the adventurer intends to drink the dirty liquid. “Well, we should definitely do a pickup,” he replies. “Let’s filter it, boil it and then drink it.”
“This water is really full of dead flies and dirt and whatnot,” the presenter adds.
So Grylls gives filtering options. “We could use a sock. But you need your socks. [Dá para usar] underwear,” he says to Portman, who raises his eyebrows in disbelief and asks, “Are we going to filter the sludge water with underwear?”
Grylls confirms, pulls out a knife and starts cutting the waistband of his underwear. “Is the water clean after passing through your underwear?”, insists the actress, to which the presenter replies, laughing: “Well, which part of the underwear do you use?”
“Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh…” Portman says, shocked. “Do you need privacy? I’ll turn the other way.”
“I mean, [a água] it’s not going to be perfectly clean,” acknowledges Grylls. “That’s an understatement,” Portman counters.
While the British takes the piece of underwear and filters the dirty water, the actress makes an expression of disgust. “That’s disgusting,” she tells her.
On Twitter, fans had fun with the situation faced by the two celebrities. “Natalie Portman’s Perrengue”, observed a user of the social network.
Still another joked that Grylls was trying to “bewitch” Portman, as several countries know the magical tradition of straining drinks through underwear to create love potions. “Please someone tell Bear Grylls he is good enough to stop trying to poison Natalie Portman with contaminated water.” joked the netizen.
In another part of the episode, Natalie Portman appears out of breath while walking along a cliff. “It looks like a vertical wall,” he laughs.
“I mean, I’m sure if he [Grylls] is asking me to do it, I can do it. Isn’t it?” she concludes in the clip, which was shared on Twitter.
Several other celebrities have already been challenged in the ‘Celebridades à Prova de Tudo’ program, which was launched in 2014. Bear Grylls’ tested list includes names like Channing Tatum, Ben Stiller, Zac Efron and Cara Delevingne.
Currently, Natalie Portman is in theaters around the world with ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, in which she makes her debut as the Mighty Thor. Check out the trailer below:
