Gemma Arterton's Rachel Admiration
Gemma Arterton hopes her career emulates that of Rachel Weisz, who is able to juggle her working commitments with family life.
Gemma Arterton wants to be Rachel Weisz.
Despite a glittering film career of her own, the 24-year-old actress is in awe of her fellow British beauty and would love to be able to balance a film career and family life like her.
She said: "I'd really like the type of career Rachel Weisz has. I have a lot of respect for her, brilliant, talented, intelligent, a witty sort of woman. You know, she'll do a rom-com - not that I ever want to do a rom-com - but then she'll go off and do 'The Constant Gardener', have a family and live quite a normal life, it seems. I respect that."
Although she loves her job, Gemma is desperate to maintain a certain level of normality in her life and finds being a famous actress quite "daunting".
She said: "I'll be honest with you, it's daunting - you have no idea what people are going to think of you, or if they'll even be interested in you!"
