“I just really, really love it here,” Portman tells Marie Claire November’s magazine about her life in Los Angeles. “It’s one of the most exciting places to be in the world right now. It’s really central in terms of the arts. It feels like things are happening in L.A., you know? New York is more where art is bought than where art is made.”

She adds: “I’m really lucky. When Ben asked me if I wanted to go to Paris, I freaked. Everyone dreams of living in Paris.”

The 31-year-old Oscar-winning actress also talked about her ” Thor: The Dark World ” costar Chris Hemsworth for whom she has only nothing but words of praise.

“Chris is, like, one of the greatest people in Hollywood,” she says. “He’s the kind of actor who’s so charismatic he must be tired when he goes home.”
