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.

Rachel Weisz Covers 'Esquire UK' April 2013

Rachel Weisz gives a sultry stare on the cover of Esquire UK‘s April 2013 issue, on newsstands March 7.

Here’s what the 42-year-old Oz the Great and Powerful actress had to share with the mag:

On not discussing her relationship with Daniel Craig: “There are lots of people involved, including children who are getting older. And they didn’t choose to have us as parents. I genuinely just don’t think it’s very fair on them to have their parents talk about stuff.”

On the potential to play a Bond villain: “I’d like to! I wouldn’t say no. I’m not a snob about entertainment.”

On not being a typical Hollywood actress: “Some of the material I’m attracted to is not… it’s just not commercial. Which means it’s really f**king interesting, you know? It’s off-centre. It doesn’t fit in a genre.”

The full interview appears in the April issue of Esquire UK, on sale Thursday (March 7), and is also available as a digital edition!
