Rachel Weisz would like to play an alcoholic.
The 45-year-old actress - who's married to James Bond star Daniel Craig - has revealed her eagerness to play a committed woman, like someone with an alcohol dependency.
Rachel said: "I suppose it's interesting to play someone who's committed to something. Even if someone's committed to alcoholism; I would be very interested in that.
"It doesn't matter if it's forces of good or forces of destruction or self-destruction. Yeah, to be full of appetite is interesting. Otherwise, to be passive, it's hard to play that."
Meanwhile, despite being one of the most high-profile women in Hollywood, Rachel doesn't think the movie industry should be responsible for dealing with broader social issues.
She told Total Film magazine: "I'm not a politician. I'm not sure if talking about it ... It's about films getting made. Doing it. Making films in which women can show the strength of their feelings.
"When you say 'a strong woman', I would say 'a woman with strong feelings'. I can't think of any male drama which wouldn't have a man who has a very strong desires or goals."
