Tilda Swinton - Tilda Swinton's Lightweight Movie Love

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."
