From Mummy to Matriarch: Rachel Weisz’s Best Lines

Rachel Weisz, the British actress known for her roles in films like “The Mummy,” “The Constant Gardener,” and “The Favourite,” has always been a force to be reckoned with on screen. But it’s not just her performances that captivate audiences; her off-screen quotes are equally compelling.

Here’s a look at some of her most memorable lines, both from her films and her personal life.

1. On Camels and the Middle East

“I have absolutely no empathy for camels. I didn’t care for being abused in the Middle East by those horrible, horrible, horrible creatures. They don’t like people.”

2. The Art of Accents

“When I’m playing a character, I use the American accent. But when I go back to England, I just glide right back into Englishness immediately. Every actor uses a dialect coach. If they say they don’t, they’re lying.”

3. Superstitions and Shoes

“I’m a bit superstitious about certain things, like what shoes to wear. If I wear the wrong shoes, the whole day may go wrong.”

4. On Role Models

“I sometimes do worry that actors are people’s role models. Doctors and teachers, people doing really important things, get paid nothing. They should be our heroes.”

5. Faith in Audiences

“You know what, I have faith in people. I think people want to see something new and different. They don’t want to have it worked out in the first 10 minutes how it will end.”

6. On Fame and Celebrity

“I’ve never felt uncomfortable with my level of fame. I don’t get hassled. Maybe sometimes in a minor way, but New Yorkers are much too cool for that. You choose to be an actress, but not to be a celebrity.”

7. The Allure of Celebrity

“The celebrity thing… I don’t want to sound as if I absolutely don’t want it because that’s not true. There’s something alluring about it.”

8. On Los Angeles

“Los Angeles makes you feel ugly. I’m not going to pretend I haven’t secretly wanted to be super-skinny, because all girls do. But I have a woman’s body, not a boy’s body.”

9. Reflecting on the Oscars

“[Regarding winning an Oscar for The Constant Gardener] I was eight months pregnant. There was a huge amount of excitement, but also anxiety. I wish I’d worn a tighter dress that definitely showed I was pregnant.”

10. On Interesting Roles

“Some of the material I’m attracted to is not commercial. It’s very raw and passionate. It’s about creativity rather than merchandising.”

In conclusion, Rachel Weisz is not just a talented actress but also a woman of depth and insight. Her quotes reflect her intelligence, wit, and unique perspective on life, making her one of the most intriguing figures in Hollywood.
