London, Feb 28 (Calcutta Tube) Actress Gemma Arterton says she’s completely in awe of actress Rachel Weisz for effectively balancing working commitments with family life. The 24-year-old Bond girl says she would love to be able to balance a film career and family life like her, reports contactmusic.com.
‘I’d really like the type of career Rachel Weisz has. I have a lot of respect for her – brilliant, talented, intelligent, a witty sort of woman,’ she said.
‘You know, she’ll do a rom-com – not that I ever want to do a rom-com – but then she’ll go off and do ‘The Constant Gardener’, have a family and live quite a normal life, it seems. I respect that,’ she added.
Although she loves her job, Arterton is desperate to maintain a certain level of normality in her life and finds being a famous actress quite ‘daunting’.
She said: ‘I’ll be honest with you, it’s daunting – you have no idea what people are going to think of you, or if they’ll even be interested in you!’
