Rachel Covers Violet Book (October 2018)

Rachel Covers Violet Book (October 2018)

Rachel is gracing another cover to promote the upcoming release of “Disobedience“, which will be released in cinemas tomorrow in the UK. Rachel is on the cover of the current issue of Violet Book magazine which is currently on newsstands. She is interviewed by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, the screenwriter of the movie. It’s a really nice and in-depth interview which you can find our press archives. We have added the scans and photoshoot outtakes in our gallery.


On what drew her to ‘Disobedience’: “I felt that way about all the characters and I think that’s what I was drawn to initially, was this script, where every character had their own really rich and complete arch and no one was using the other person just to surface the story, you know, and everyone was on a really interesting journey. It didn’t feel like anyone was pushed to the side, and even Dovid [played by Alessandro Nivola], the cuckold—you know, he wasn’t just a device, he was a real person.”

On not wanting to direct: “Especially in film, like I said, without the rehearsal, and it’s just like, all the stars have to be aligned. Sometimes I’m just amazed that movies get made, I’m amazed that they come together, there’s so many moving parts, and I do think a director often is… I would never want to direct because I’m terrible at decision making. I can’t make snap decisions, I have to really think things through and sort of waffle back and forth and play devil’s advocate and be my own worst enemy and then I come back around and— Anyway, it’s exhausting […] But I could never be a director because it’s just constantly having to make decisions, and sometimes I’ve talked to directors and they’re like, ‘You almost just fake it ’til you make it’, and so I think there’s no much on a director’s plate. I’m kind of a pest [laughs]. But that’s just my process.”

On how ‘Mean Girls’ influenced her future project choices: “I think that’s when I first started to think, like, oh, use your voice as best you can, and then, at the same time, just show a variety of people. I think that goes to show a diverse swath of characters and that women can be all kinds of things. They can be strong in one moment and weak in another, and it’s not over, you know—weakness is suggestive, and so not just get into playing the idea of the strong woman, which is quite limiting.”

On #MeToo “Yeah, how do we not swing so far the other way? With #MeToo and everything I feel like it’s been amazing. There’s a revolution happening, and just in my industry, all the older, seasoned actresses are looking back and thinking, ‘Oh yeah, we did this as well in the 60s and 70s and now it just came back around again.’ And is this just a reincarnation of it or is there real change happening? I feel like there’s real change happening. But I suppose the danger is, I don’t know, you swing so far one way and then, you know, it’s like with American politics [laughs], you wind up in this echo chamber. And then the other group suddenly feels marginalised and like they’re losing their power and start to rise up and it’s like, how do we find that middle ground where everyone feels heard and everyone feels human and everyone has compassion for all people. But I also think you kinda have to fight hard and use your anger to get anywhere.”

Rachel Covers The Sunday Times Style (November 25)

Rachel graced the cover of this past weekend’s issue of The Sunday Times’ (UK) Style Magazine to promote the upcoming release of “Disobedience” in the UK. We have added the (digital) scans in our gallery as well as the photoshoot outtakes. The interview can be found in our press archives and excerpts can be found below. “Disobedience” will be out in cinemas on November 30 in the UK.


On her breakout year: “Timing is such a funny thing. They were very different roles and genres, which allowed me more choice.”

On motherhood: “It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me, hands down. [People say] your life is not your own any more. But I had 39 years of me, I was sick of me, I was so happy to put the focus on some other person. I waited a long time [for motherhood].”

On the theme of ‘Disobedience’: “It’s so tragic to think that, of all the problems in this world, we make it an issue who you want to love. It drives me nuts.”

Good Morning America

Rachel made an appearance on Good Morning America earlier this week to promote “Doctor Strange” alongside her lovely co-star Tilda Swinton. We have added the interview in our video archive and screencaptures in our gallery. The interview was prerecorded when the cast was in Los Angeles earlier this month.



CP24 Breakfast

CP24 Breakfast

Rachel stopped by CP24 Breakfast morning show yesterday in Toronto to promote “Doctor Strange“. She looked lovely in a white and black dress.

2016 Magazine Scans Update

Rachel has been busy with promoting “Spotlight” during award season and we are unable to catch up on recent magazine scans, until now. We have added the (digital) magazine scans of (international) magazines in our gallery, including great interviews with Hello! Canada – her first exclusive post-Oscar nomination interview – and Hello! Magazine UK. The transcripts of the interview have been added in our press archive.

On selecting projects: “Oh, it sort of seems to change with every project, but I just always look for something that’s going to challenge me, some uncharted territory. A director who’s passionate, good storytelling — those are usually at the top of the list and then I go from there.”

On Doctor Strange: “I’m afraid someone from Marvel will jump out of a hidden closet to stop me talking! I’m playing a doctor and I don’t actually know how much I can say, to be honest. But most of my stuff is with Benedict [Cumberbatch], which is great for me.”

On Sacha Pfeiffer: “She’s just an incredibly awesome person. She works so hard and really cares about telling the story right, no matter what it takes. I feel very privileged to play her.”

Next up are the Satellite Awards on Sunday (February 21). Rachel is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in “Spotlight” and the cast is expected to receive the Ensemble: Motion Picture Award. It’s not yet announced if Rachel will attend the ceremony.

On how she wants to be remembered: “I would like to be remembered for kindness.”

On how she finds the emotional core of a character: “When I feel lost, I try to remind myself that’s a good thing. Often when I’ve been lost in the past, some of my most interesting work happens”
