·1 min read

Natalie Portman has no time for people commenting on any woman's body -- especially her own.

A recent article from Page Six speculated whether or not the Oscar-winning actress was pregnant, suggesting via paparazzi photos that she had stepped out with a baby bump in Sydney while filming "Thor: Love and Thunder."

When the piece caught Portman's attention, she didn't hold back in her critique.

"Hey, so I'm totally not pregnant," she wrote in her Instagram Stories, via People. "But apparently it's still ok in 2021 for anyone to speculate and comment on a woman's body shape whenever they want? Do better @nypost."

In July 2019 it was announced that Portman would be picking up Mjolnir, Thor's mighty hammer, and stepping into the spotlight in "Love and Thunder" alongside Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Christian Bale.

Before this, her character had been relegated to being the love interest of Hemsworth's Avengers member in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now she will become a superhero in her own right: the Mighty Thor.

"Thor: Love and Thunder" is currently scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2022.
