I’ve got a lot of thorns. I’m very thorny. I still think it’s important to question authority. I don’t want to smash things up just for the sake of it. But I like to question people who say they’re in charge. // Rachel Weisz

“The thing about acting is that I’ve never felt ‘Oh yeah, I’ve done that, now I can relax’ It’s a lifelong thing. It actually took me a while to relax in front of a camera, so I think as soon as that started to happen, things started to get better.”

“It is difficult to feel comfortable when you’re acting and you are naked. I was naked in my first movie, Stealing Beauty, and the director, Bernardo Bertolucci, sort of made me feel ridiculous even to be worrying about showing my breasts. In The Deep Blue Sea, my character has a passionate need for her lover. The director, Terence Davies, told me, ‘Rachel, I would like you to lick his back.’ My character needs to nourish herself through this man or she will perish. So I licked him. I was tempted to take a bite.”
