Tilda Swinton Is Not “Bimbo Material”

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrity Gossip,

Tilda SwintonTilda Swinton always knew she was never going to be "bimbo material."

The 52-year-old actress - who earned the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in Michael Clayton in 2008 - struggled to get meaningful roles when she started her acting career and knew she would be "a bit off an outsider" until she got older.

"I was never going to be bimbo material. So I just kept my head down in my 20s. I had this strange instinct that I would only begin to start my real work in my 40s," she said.

Tilda has 16-year-old twins Honor and Xavier with Scottish playwright John Byrne and she admits she is a naturally lazy person and prefers to spend time at home with them than work, and she is often hassled into accepting roles: "I had my children and knew that at some point, when they were old enough, I would have more time. I am truly idle, because I would never do anything that I didn't want to do. I have some very hardy and wily representatives whose job it is to mud-wrestle me to the ground and make me work."

Cinecast: Clips from Jarmusch’s Latest, Bradley Cooper in Curlers

Bradley Cooper+ While most actors probably would have donned a wig in his place, Bradley Cooper is dedicated to his craft. Here are some photos to prove that the curls he sports in David O. Russell's upcoming frilm American Hustle are the real deal!

+ Just as you were thinking that Tom Hiddleston was all brooded-out after playing Loki for three films, the folks behind Jim Jarmusch's upcoming Only Lovers Left Alive put out two clips of the vampire flick that prove you wrong.

+ Mad Men star is moving on up to the big screen, getting behind the camera to direct Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro, Richard Jenkins, and Christina Hendricks in God's Pocket, which he adapted from Pete Dexter's novel of the same name.

+ With Fast and Furious 6 and the return of his Pitch Black character in Riddick, this year is unofficially the year of Vin Diesel and his sequels. While you're still holding out hope that xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will be finally greenlit, you can check out the trailer for Riddick here.

Tilda Swinton to Star in Snow Piercer

Tilda Swinton at this year's Golden GlobesTilda Swinton is set star in Snow Piercer.

The We Need To Talk About Kevin actress is in talks to join Chris Evans in the indie drama which is set in a world covered in ice and snow and follows a group of passengers on a train who must help each other in order to survive. Jamie Bell is also in negotiations for a role in the film, which is set to be the first American movie that The Host filmmaker Bong Joon-ho - who has also written the script - will direct. Park Chan-wook will co-produce through Moho Films with production expected to start in March, though no distributor is yet in place.

Tilda recently admitted she considers every project she does to be her last and is looking forward to retiring as soon as possible. "Every time I'm in a film, I'm determined it's the last film I'm in and then I'll fall into a conversation with someone and we'll cook up a new scheme. Being part of a group has kept me in this because if I wasn't making films I'd be by myself a lot. And basically, it's gone on for 20 years but I'm hoping to pull it to a close shortly. I'm not going, 'Where are the films?' because I don't want there to be films. It's not like I'm looking for opportunities to do things. I would like an opportunity to have a good sleep and get on with some writing."


Quote of the Day: Tilda Swinton on Acting

Tilda Swinton winning her Oscar

"I'm not really interested in acting. I've given up waiting for an epiphany of interest to strike. Acting is a red herring and a major mistake and I'm still trying to get back on track. Every time I'm in a film I'm determined it's the last I'm in then I'll fall into a conversation with someone and we'll cook up a new scheme. Basically it's gone on for 20 years but I'm hoping to pull it to a close shortly."
