Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman will find it hard to relocate to Paris, France with her husband Benjamin Millepied next year (14), because she loves everything about living in Los Angeles.

The Black Swan star admits she treasures the years she has spent in Tinseltown and she always looks forward to discovering new arts around town.

She tells Marie Claire magazine, “I just really, really love it here. 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…”

However, Portman will have to leave her adopted home behind when she moves to the French capital, where Millepied has accepted a job with the Paris Opera Ballet, and she reveals the news took her by surprise.

She says, “When Ben asked me if I wanted to go to Paris, I freaked. Everyone dreams of living in Paris.”

The couple wed in August, 2012, three months after welcoming their son, Alef.
