Teresa Palmer says being a mum is "1000 times better than Hollywood".

Australian actress Teresa Palmer is fast becoming a big Hollywood name – but it’s her role as a mum that she cherishes the most.

The 29-year-old’s son Bodhi turns two next month, and the Warm Bodies star recently told TV Week that being a mum was her “favourite thing”.

“He’s fantastic, 1000 times better than Hollywood,” she said.

“He’s just sunshine. It’s so beautiful being a mum. It’s my favourite thing, more than anything else in the world.

“I’m so jealous of my husband, who gets to spend time with him while I’m at work."

Palmer, who married actor and director Mark Webber in 2013, is planning to split her time between Adelaide and Los Angeles this year.

“I realised I need to stop saying I wish I was in Australia and just be in Australia," she said.

"Adelaide is very laid-back and chilled, so it’s just a nice contrast to the crazy life we lead in LA.”

Palmer is starring in Point Break which airs this week.

She said that she was breastfeeding Bodhi while filming, which was a "good excuse" to get out of doing the movies diving stunts herself.

Teresa has previously spoken about how becoming a mum has helped and not hindered her career, saying she had been offered more roles than ever before since Bodhi's birth.

She's also slammed the hypocrisy of highly-sexualised, lingerie-clad women featuring on billboards while images of breastfeeding mothers remained taboo.

It's refreshing to see a Hollywood star speak so openly about their family life - and we can't wait to see more of Teresa and her little family this year.
