Rachel Weisz Grateful for Anonymity in New York City
Being a small fish in a big pond suits Rachel Weisz just fine. While the paparazzi are content to chase after her British compatriot Kate Winslet, the 39 -year-old actress says she’s been able to enjoy relative anonymity in New York City with partner Darren Aronofsky and their 3-year-old son Henry Chance. “I have never had a problem, except maybe briefly when I won the Oscar and gave birth to Henry in quick succession,” she tells the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. “Then suddenly everyone was interested.”
Although “having those lenses coming up towards you when you’re holding this little bundle in your arms is frightening,” Rachel says that such instances were few and far between. “Sometimes the paparazzi, on the lookout for Tom Cruise, who lives nearby, trickle onto my street, take a few pictures of me and disappear,” she concedes. “But I never feel hounded.”
“I am really not on that level of fame. I go on the subway. I walk Henry to school.”
Rachel’s next film The Lovely Bones is slated for a December 2009 release.
