It all started in the first Avenger movie where Thor had to strike Loki across the face. Although Hiddleston was wearing the infamous Loki horns which weigh about 30 lbs. With so much weight on his head, it was difficult for him to sell the scene. Hence to make the shoot appear more real Hiddleston requested Hemsworth to hit him for real which he regrets to date.

Talking about this at the Stephen Colbert Late-Night Show, Hiddleston said “Actually, there was a scene in the first ‘Avengers’ movie, where Thor had to strike Loki across the face and I was wearing the horns that weigh about 30lbs. I couldn’t quite sell the hit, the smack, so I said to Chris, ‘I think you should just hit me in the face’. It was a terrible idea, and I went down like a stone.”

This incident sheds light on the efforts and commitment shown by the actors to nail a scene even if it means taking on some calculated risks for the sake of authenticity.
