Natalie Portman admits it's "flattering" to win critical acclaim for her work.

The actress won the Best Actress prize at the 2011 Golden Globes for her role as troubled ballerina Nina in 'Black Swan' and says it's great both the audiences and critics are enjoying her performance.

She told BANG Showbiz: "It's obviously very flattering. Especially to be named in The Company of the actors and the films that are being recognised this year. It's exciting to be in a film that people like in a year of good films. But at the same time the real rewarding thing, apart from the work itself is audience reaction which has been so overwhelming. It's really exciting to hear people, well the most fun is to hear people debating their different takes on what the movie is about and what's real and what's not real and just to see people engaging in it so passionately is just you're greatest dream when you are making a movie."

Natalie - who is expecting her first baby with fiance Benjamin Millepied - says that although it was a huge honour for her to win the role of Nina, she admits she would never go to the same lengths as her alter-ego to get a job.

She said: "I don't know that I'd kill for a role! I don't think anything is quite that important. But yes of course there are things you really feel are right and this is an Example of a role that I was very, very honoured to have the opportunity to do and excited by the chance to challenge myself in this way."
