Rachel ‘Cruise’ Weisz
The Oscar-winning actress claims she isn’t famous enough to be followed by paparazzi in Hollywood, and only gets snapped by people looking for the ‘Valkyrie’ star, who lives close to her.
She explained to Britain’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine: “Sometimes the paparazzi, on the lookout for Tom Cruise who lives nearby, trickle onto my street, take a few pictures of me, and disappear. But I never feel hounded. I am really not on that level of fame. I go on the subway and I can walk my son Henry to school.
“I have never had a problem, except maybe briefly when I won the Oscar and gave birth to Henry in quick succession. Then suddenly everyone was interested. Having those lenses coming up towards you when you’re holding this little bundle in your arms is frightening.”
The British actress - who has a three-year-old son, Henry, with her partner of eight years, ‘The Wrestler’ director Darren Aronofsky - is about to return to her native country, where she will star in a new London West End production of ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’.
Rachel, 38, is thrilled about returning to the UK.
She said: “I love the way girls in London dress, it’s so different to the American ‘blow-dry and immaculate grooming’ thing. I am pretty much in a constant state of mourning for London when I’m not there. I miss a chat.”
