London: Hollywood actress Natalie Portman believes beauty is boring and admits she can`t understand why people are so obsessed with their appearance.

"Beauty can be a hindrance, especially if that`s the only thing that matters to other people. I`m also aware that being considered attractive can be a huge factor in getting work in my profession," quoted her as saying.

"Beauty can be boring if you`re with a guy who is focussed on his looks or your looks all the time," she said.

"I know a lot of male actors who are totally obsessed with creating a certain look," she added.
