Natalie Portman loves getting to travel with her work and particularly enjoys shooting in Berlin, Germany

Natalie Portman's favourite place to film a movie is Berlin.

The 'Closer' star has been lucky enough to film all over the world as an A-list star, and marks out the German capital as her absolute favourite place to make films.

When asked her favourite location to film, Natalie - who is moving to Paris, France, with husband Benjamin Millepied and their two-year-old son Aleph - replied: "I absolutely love Berlin. Madrid was amazing, working on 'Goya's Ghosts', I went to the Prado museum every day. And I learned to love Tunisia on 'Star Wars'. The first time we went it was very, very hot, so it was quite hard, but the second time, I just absolutely fell in love with North Africa. I also really love Santa Fe [in New Mexico, US] 'Jane Got a Gun' was shot there."

Natalie, 32, also hates sexism in the movie industry, and thinks most people get confused between feminism and being "macho".

She told Britain's Elle magazine: "The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you're making a 'feminist' story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That's not feminist, that's macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathise with."
