Natalie Portman has claimed that "feminism is misinterpreted" in Hollywood films because most roles for women are written by men.

The Oscar-winning actress suggested that because characters are often "just a fantasy of a male writer", the women can keep up with the men in a physical sense, but they don't have fully formed personalities.

At the premiere of Thor: The Dark World in Leicester Square, she told Sky News: "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 - whether it's weak and strong, just being human and being real, and not just being some fantasy of a male writer - is more feminist than 'she knows how to do kung fu'."
