'Thor' stars at world premiere in London

Natalie Portman thinks Chris Hemsworth has great "chemistry with everyone."

The 'Thor: The Dark World' actress, who has a 16-month-old son, Aleph, with her professional ballet dancer husband Benjamin Millepied, has praised the Australian heartthrob, 30, for making their intense working environment more fun and thinks he is one of the best actors in Hollywood.

Speaking at the world premiere of the new action movie at the Odeon in London's Leicester Square last night, the 32-year-old beauty said: "I think Chris has chemistry with everyone he meets. He's the nicest, most professional, best actor."

She added: "He's very easy to be around. It's definitely not something we needed to work at and I think that says so much about him. He's a great guy."

But it seems Chris can't quite believe he has so many fans, as he was almost rendered speechless by the warm reception he received at the screening.

He said: "I love shooting in London. I've done a number of films here now and to be back with this film that we started three years ago to this kind of reception is a dream come true."

The duo were joined at the red carpet event by Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgard, director Alan Taylor, and 'The Avengers' director Joss Whedon.

Other stars at the screening included 'The X Factor' 2013 contestants, Al Murray and Dynamo.
