London: Actress Natalie Portman believes feminism is misinterpreted in Hollywood.

The 32-year-old Oscar-winning actress was speaking at the world premiere of `Thor: The Dark World` in London’s Leicester Square and said that women`s roles are often just a fantasy of a male writer, reported Showbiz spy.

"I don`t think that`s necessarily feminist to see women like we see men in movies. Just having a range of different ways women can be... Weak and strong... Just being real is more feminist than `she knows how to do kung fu`," she said.

However, Portman revealed that she loves living in Hollywood.

"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."
