Rachel Weisz Prefers Making Independent Movies

Rachel Weisz heads to the gym for an early morning workout on Monday (March 18) in New York City.

The 43-year-old Oz the Great and Powerful actress recently said that she prefers making independent movies over big budget studio films.

“Some of the material I’m attracted to is not commercial. Which means it’s really f–king interesting, you know? It’s off-center. It doesn’t fit a genre. I’m not trying to sound like I’m unaware. I understand that it’s a business to some extent,” Rachel said.

“But I also think that with independent film, the stakes are not that high. There are things that as big-business-slash-small-art. This cocktail would have been low-business-slash-high-art. It’s about creativity rather than merchandising,” she added.

all the “serious” actors prefer independent over big budget movies.

@Red:

You can’t blame them. Most of the big budget films are not very good in terms of their script. Look at Oz, Rachel is the best thing about it while James Franco and Mila Kunis crap over everything in that film. Rachel along with Michelle Williams were the only actors who cared about their performances and both of them mostly do independent films.

Thank god Rachel Weisz was in Oz, because with out her performance the movie would have been unwatchable. Rachel was dun sassy and grand. Too bad she had to share the screen with James Franco, who looked high through out the film and Mila Kunis, who gave the worst acting performance of the year so far. With out Weisz’s performance, I would have walked out of the movie theater. That’s how bad Franco and Kunis were.

Makes sense. The script for Oz was terrible but she chose to be part of it anyway, so acting is a business to some extent. She’s right. She has to pick up the pay check and throw her hands in the air once in a while.

STARS COME OUT FOR ‘THE FLICK’

It must have been couples night at the Playwrights Horizons theater Saturday. Film-star couples Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal took in a performance of the three-hour play “The Flick,” which is fittingly about a movie house.

@maurice:

Jealous of real beauty? Not surprised.

@Walking deadman:

Oz was terrible. Rachel gave the film one of its few good performances.

Men dont get jelous of beautiful women fool, that photo is nasty and if it wasnt captioned rachel weisz no one even look twice,

@Brenda:

no offend, there are many beautiful women but Daniel Craig used to date strangely looking chicks like Satsuki, Heike and in the end he married boring Rachel who looks like the type he can go to the gym, then come home and have a beer,she is like his best buddie and that’s boring. Of course it’s not all about beauty but Daniel never had a happy hand in picking a good looking and interesting woman in one. None of these women made his toes curl, they were the ones who fell for him.

@maurice:
LOL.. it’s true that pic isn’t flattering! Her silly hat doesn’t help matters much

@Premium:
he was with each of them for a long time so they must have been doing something right.. until the next one came along. I don’t think that tying the knot with Rachel will make any difference to his wandering **** syndrome!

@lots:

Lots, we get it, you have a personal problem with Rachel. Going to everyboard and crying about her is not going to get people to agree with you. And stop writing under different names to pretend people agree with you.

And yes, Lots+Primium= same person. You can find a similar conversation on the other boards.

@Jessie:
The only person crying is you, if you can’t comprehend that some people have similar opinions that differ from yours, then you must be a serious weirdo
