Taika Waititi caught the Internet’s attention after he appeared to engage in some “Love and Thunder” with “Thor” star Tessa Thompson and Rita Ora.
Paparazzi photos surfaced in June of the “Thor: Love and Thunder” director smooching both Thompson and Ora in public, and both women kissing each other. In a new interview with Sydney Morning Herald, Waititi addressed if he was upset by the images going public.
“Not really,” the director replied. “I think in the world of the internet, everything goes away pretty quick.”
“And also, ‘is it that big a deal?’ No, not really. I was doing nothing wrong,” he asserted. “It’s fine.”
Marvel senior executives were reportedly upset with the photos and reprimanded Waititi.
