Natalie Portman would love to live and work in the same place.

The jet-setting 'Thor: The Dark World' star is ''envious'' of her British co-stars who are able to live and work in the same city because more and more Hollywood productions are making use of London's production studios.

She told BANG Showbiz: ''I love working here in London and I'm envious of British actors and British crews because American actors, we end up like gypsies - movie to movie, moving cities every time. But you can have such a fulfilling, wonderful, rich career here between the theatre, the TV, and the film all in one place. It's pretty cool to get to live and work in the same place.''

The 32-year-old beauty - who has two-year-old son Aleph with her husband Benjamin Millepied - also said her mother Shelley Hershlag, who is her agent, often lends out family photos of her as a child to decorate the sets of her films, but joked her mum keeps using the same ones.

Speaking at the 'Thor: The Dark World' press conference in London, she explained: ''I guess the funny thing is that it is the same set of photos she always lends out for every movie I've done for the past 20 years. There's a lot of characters that shouldn't have the same experiences and family photos, but do. Also, all sorts of people have been Photoshopped into them - there's some interesting ones of me and Tobey Maguire from when I'm young, but not real, of course.''
