Natalie Portman Shows Some Skin, Looks Gorgeous In Marie Claire Shoot

Natalie Portman shows some skin in the November 2013 issue of Marie Claire magazine and opens up about her move to Paris.

On the cover, the 32-year-old rocks a red cutout frock that bares her midriff. Inside the issue, Portman stuns in a plunging, patterned gown.

She hasn't been seen on the big screen in two years, but her appearance on the cover of the fashion mag comes ahead of some big things, including the premiere of "Thor: The Dark World" on Nov. 8 and a move from Los Angeles to Paris.

The star is heading to the City of Light for her husband, Benjamin Millepied. There, he will direct the Paris Opera Ballet starting in September 2014, the New York Times previously reported. They are planning to move at the end of next year with their 2-year-old son, Aleph.

“I just really really love it here," Portman told Marie Claire of life in LA. "It’s one of the most exciting places to be in the world right now. It’s really central in terms of the arts. It feels like things are happening in L.A., you know? New York is more where art is bought than where art is made… I’m really lucky. When Ben asked me if I wanted to go to Paris, I freaked. Everyone dreams of living in Paris.”

She loves LA even in spite of the paparazzi.

"Like, I don't like this part of it," she explained to Marie Claire of being photographed. "But there are two parts to it. If you don't see them, then they're not interfering with the way you feel when you're at the park... If they make your kids afraid, then obviously that's a whole second layer to it."
