Rachel Weisz: I Wanted to Play the Bad Girl in 'Oz'!

Rachel Weisz and her six-year-old son Henry hold hands as they make their way to his school early Thursday morning (March 14) in New York City.

The 43-year-old actress recently gave and interview to STV where she talks about her role in Oz the Great and Powerful.

“Well, I’ve never played a good one,” Rachel said. “I’ve not played a witch before, this is my first witch.”

“But I wanted to be the bad girl…she’s manipulative, she’s cruel, she lies, she cheats, she wants the throne, she breaks her sister’s heart… the more evil she is, the more fun she has. So I thought that was just a really good character,” Rachel added.

Oz the Great and Powerful is currently in theater!
