She's an Oscar-winner and is one of Hollywood's finest talents. And Rachel Weisz has joined a long list of actresses including Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep in speaking out against the gender pay gap and obvious inequality within the industry.
The 46-year-old star also discussed not wanting to play the role of a female victim on screen in NET-A-PORTER’s weekly digital magazine The EDIT.
Rachel said: 'It’s very easy to talk about: it’s clear women aren’t paid as much; they’re not represented enough in leading roles.
'But the problem isn’t film, the problem is culture – women in all positions across the board. Everything is out of control.'
The Constant Gardener star will next appear in The Light Between Oceans alongside Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender, in which she plays a fragile mother dealing with the loss of her child.
She told The EDIT there are certain characters she won’t play on screen – women portrayed as the victim, or who are objectified.
