She added: ‘But apparently it’s still okay in 2021 for anyone to speculate and comment on a woman’s body shape whenever they want? Do better.’

A rep for the actress also told Daily Mail Australia that reports of her being pregnant were ‘not true’.

In the photos, Natalie was wearing a loose tank with blue tights, runners, and a navy blue baseball cap.

She protected herself from COVID-19 with a blue face mask before grabbing an icy drink.

Thor is only just starting to take shape as filming began at Fox Studios in Sydney last month.

The blockbuster will see Natalie’s character, astrophysicist Jane Foster, take up the mantle of Thor after transforming into a female version of the Norse god.

‘It’s going to be really silly and funny and great,’ Natalie recently said of the project.

Explaining how she was approached for the film, she told ET last year how exciting the project was to her.

‘They came to me with the idea and said, ”we have this idea for you that was a storyline in some of the comics where Jane becomes Lady Thor,” and I was like, ”this is very exciting!”

Natalie was absent for 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, but was a key player in the first two Thor films in 2011 and 2013.
