Natalie Portman thinks Jake Gyllenhaal is "perfect".

The actress loved hanging out with the actor - who is dating Reese Witherspoon - while filming their new movie 'Brothers' and praised his sense of humour and hair care advice, but insisted she doesn't find him attractive.

She said: "Jake is the kind of guy who can do a spot-on impression of someone you work with that will make you giggle.

"He knows home remedies for distressed hair. He can build a cabinet from scratch. He plays guitar and has a great voice. Kids and dogs love him. He loves his mom and sister and girlfriend. He's perfect. Too bad he's ugly."

Jake also enjoyed shooting 'Brothers', admitting he had wanted to work with Tobey Maguire, who plays his onscreen sibling, for a long time to prove they are not identical looking.

He quipped: "People have very often said to me that I look like Tobey. To all those cab drivers in New York, I'm not Spider-Man!

"We really just made the movie so I could say I look a little different than Tobey."

Jake also spoke out about the attention he receives when out in public, insisting he will never complain as it comes with being an actor.

He said: "That's just a little part of this job. It's a part of the job, and there are days that are easier than other days. In terms of a funny guy jumping out of the corner somewhere and catching a photo of you, I can't say anything bad about it."
