Tilda Swinton: 'I Don't Have a Career, I Have a Life'

Tilda Swinton hits the carpet at a screening of her new film Only Lovers Left Alive on Wednesday (March 12) at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York City.

The 53-year-old actress was seen earlier in the day out and about with her longtime partner Sandro Kopp.

Tilda recently chatted with Variety about if there are roles she seeks out in her career.

“My life is a weird combination of my friends throwing me opportunities, and me dreaming opportunities up. Then when something dovetails like this movie, when I was already thinking about mortality, a particular predilection of mine, it was very intimately sewn up with my own life,” Tilda said. “So the short answer is I don’t have a career, I have a life. I follow my life and the way I’m living it so no, I don’t have an exterior judgment on what would be good or bad for me.”

  • renee

    she is the coolest. i want to trade lives with tilda swinton. She is so regal and queenly. Just radiates “something special.” and looking beautiful, no matter what age. too bad she hates make up though. when she highlights her features, even a little, she looks fantastic. I’m a straight lady, and i just love her. why aren’t there more people like this? i meet such intellectually barren idiots !!
