Scarlett Johansson behind the scenes of The Avengers
robERT LOOKS ReaLLY DRUNK LIKE HE HAS NO IDEA WHATS GOING ON AND JEREMY LITERALLY LOOKS EXACTLY THE SAME IN EACH PICTURE I’M LAUGHIGN
OMG JEREMY IS LIKE A WAX FIGURE. DYING.
In devising his character, one of the things I really struggled with is how sympathetic he had been in “Thor” and what a tragic figure he had been. But, in speaking through Goddard, resident expert on all things evil, he reminded me that he did throw himself into an abyss and that he has come out to the other side of it. And that enabled me to let him (Hiddleston) play the way Loki is traditionally played, which is … for fun. For him to have fun with what he’s doing and for the sadness, the texture that (Kenneth) Branagh had brought to the character to lay underneath it. Every now and then, his need and his resentment gets the better of his evil. But only occasionally in turns, very good at riding that line between truly spectacularly delightfully evil and believable. It’s very easy to go too far in a direction or another.
