London: Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz has revealed that she chose to do ‘Brothers Bloom’ because she wanted to try her hand in comic roles.
The 39-year-old plays child-like millionairess Penelope in the film.
"I wanted to do comedy and when I came across this it seemed like this was what I’d been looking for,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
Weisz believes that with the new movie she has moved over the image of Fernando Meirelles, the role she played in 2005 film ‘The Constant Gardener,’ which landed her an Oscar.
She added: "Penelope, in my mind, is very, very different from the character in The Constant Gardener, so I don’t feel in a box at all. I feel like I’m roaming around all over the place.”
