Tilda Swinton - Tilda Swinton's Lightweight Movie Love
Tilda Swinton likes doing ''tourist'' films like 'Burn After Reading' or 'The Chronicles of Narnia' as they are ''lightweight on the diary''.
Tilda Swinton likes to do "tourist" movies which don't take much of her time.
The Oscar-winning actress - who has previously claimed she never planned to get into Hollywood - admits she loves getting roles in films such as 'Burn After Reading' or 'The Chronicles of Narnia' because it means she get to enjoy dressing up and playing.
She said: "I call that tourism because it's really easy for me.
"It's very lightweight on the diary. I'll put on a costume and play with some friends and then I'll come home."
However her latest role as troubled mother Eva Khatchadourian in 'We Need to Talk About Kevin' was a bit more hardcore, and she admits she didn't always intend to appear in the Lynne Ramsay-directed film.
She said: "Lynne would have made that film without me but it would have been very different. I thought she should make it with someone completely unknown who was real - real American, real Armenian descent. But things don't always work out that way."
Tilda also reveals the Oscar she won for her role in 'Michael Clayton' - in which she starred with George Clooney - has had little impact on her life and she considers it largely "irrelevant".
She told the Metro newspaper: "I can't imagine it would hinder things so I'm not complaining but it's sort of irrelevant. It doesn't really figure in my life."
