Natalie Portman's Etiquette Struggles

Actress Natalie Portman says she struggles to get her head around French etiquette rules. The 'Black Swan' actress moved to Paris, France in 2014 after her dancer-choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied became the Paris Opera Ballet's director of dance. But following a recent move back to Los Angeles, Portman, 35, says she is pleased to be back on familiar turf, as she is never really come to terms with French social customs, reported Entertainment Tonight.

"I feel there's a lot of rules of politeness and codes of behaviour there you have to follow," she said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "It's a lot looser here (in the United States)." The Academy Award-winner added that Parisians have a very 'cool' demeanour, and she is very careful about what how she behaves in public.

In fact, she was grateful when a friend shared some advice with her so that she wouldn't be snubbed by disgruntled staff in boutiques. "A friend of mine taught me that when you go in some place you have to say 'bonjour' before you say anything else, then you have to wait two seconds before you say something else. "So, if you go into a store you can't be like, 'Do you have this in another size?' or they'll think you're super rude and then they'll be rude to you," she shared. In contrast, Natalie, who has a five-year-old son named Aleph, finds Americans are a little overly friendly. 'Everyone smiles a lot here. It's so nice. They're more cool in France. I didn't realise I got used to it until I got here and I was so surprised. Someone would smile at my child and I'd be, 'What a good person'. People are really lovely here.

I would say that etiquette are hard to follow but are quite beneficial too.

I think it is good to follow a common code of conduct but, when this etiquette thing makes you feel suffocated its always better to let go and be the real decent you.
