Rachel Weisz Reveals: I'm Not A Brave Person, I've Never Done Anything Bold!

Rachel plays a police officer in Bosnia who uncovers a massive sex-trafficking ring within the UN in her upcoming flick — but she tells us that she’s not as brave in real life.

Rachel Weisz is refreshingly humble. The gorgeous actress attended the NYC premiere of her new film The Whistleblower hosted by The Cinema Society & Dior Beauty with DeLeón on July 27 and adamantly downplayed how courageous and gifted she is when speaking to

“I’m not a brave as Kathy … by a long shot,” she says when referring to the film’s real life character Kathryn Bolkovac. “I’m not brave.”

We beg to differ! Rachel, 41, tells the empowering true story of a policewoman who risks her life to uncover a horrific human-trafficking scandal which involves U.S. military and United Nations employees in Bosnia.

“I’m just an escapist. I’m a dreamer, I tell stories,” she continues. “I haven’t done anything bold or useful. I just kind of day dream and I get paid to do it now. To dress up and pretend to be other people … it’s an amazing life, it is.”

Rachel was beaming in her jaw-dropping red mini and we don’t blame her. She just married fellow actor Daniel Craig, 43, in a private NYC ceremony on June 22 — we’re so happy for her, she definitely has a lot to smile about!

Check out The Whistleblower when it hits theaters Aug. 5!
