Natalie Portman is obsessed with cooking shows.

The 'Black Swan' actress - who has three-year-old son Aleph with husband Benjamin Millepied - relaxes by watching food programmes, but admits she is "too lazy" to copy any of the dishes she sees on screen.

Asked how she relaxes, she said: "Spending time with my family. I watch food television. Like, cooking shows.

"I don't cook the recipes, I just watch them. I'm very lazy."

And the 33-year-old star also loves surfing real estate websites, even though she isn't house-hunting.

Discussing her favourite website, she said: "Curbed.com - it's just real estate, but it's my secret habit."

Natalie began her career when she was just 12 years old in 'Leon: The Professional' and admits it was a very "glamorous" introduction to acting.

She told Red magazine: "It was so glamorous and everything was like an adventure.

"It was my first movie and I was the baby on set so everyone was really sweet. And just to spend all this time in Paris...

"At the weekends, my mom and I could go to the Rodin Museum and the Pompidou and the d'Orsay. I was exposed to a whole world that I wouldn't have had the chance to see otherwise."
