LONDON: Rachel Weisz sees acting as a ‘kind of escapism’. The ‘Disobedience’ star admits her chosen career gives her an escape from who she is. She told CBS’ Sunday Morning: ‘’I think acting is a kind of escapism from who you are.’’
Meanwhile, the 48-year-old actress wants to ‘’take more risks’’ in her career.
She shared: ‘’I don’t really feel that risky. I feel I have got to be more risky. I’ve decided now I intend to take more risks.’’
In her most recent movie, Rachel was involved in an on-screen lesbian relationship and says the experience of sharing intimate scenes with another woman was ‘’lovely’’. She explained: ‘’I’m always spending time with men in fictions, so for me it was just really unusual and lovely. As a woman, you’re often the object of the man’s desire, or he’s the object of yours, but I felt like there was something just so different about the female gaze.’’
