Rachel Weisz - Shy Actress Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz has always been shy about acting, even though she admits she is confident in her everyday life.
Rachel Weisz has always been shy about acting.
The British star - who is married to Daniel Craig - has enjoyed an impressive career, starring in Hollywood films such as 'The Mummy', 'The Lovely Bones' and 'The Fountain' but doesn't think acting was a natural calling for her and admits she is more reserved in her work than everyday life.
She said: ''I wasn't so much a shy child, but I was shy about acting. I wasn't the sort of kid whose mother would put her up on the table and make her do a dance for everyone. I wasn't the star of the school plays.
''I was generally very shy of performing. I wasn't a 'performer'. I'm still not really like that, I don't think. I don't have that 'jazz hands' thing in me.''
Despite her hang-ups, Rachel - who has six-year-old son Henry with former partner Darren Aronofsky - won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in 'The Constant Gardener' but can't remember much about the evening of her win.
She told Empire magazine: ''It's a completely surreal experience. Every actor has a fantasy that It will happen, but you don't believe it will. I'd never been to the Oscars before that night. It's really a big, hazy blur. I was so vastly pregnant at the time, I couldn't go and get merry with people.''
