London: Actress Rachel Weisz says she tried to change her name because that "sounds like a porn star".

‘The Constant Gardener’ star grew so tired of teachers botching the pronunciation of her surname, she altered the "weird" spelling in a bid to avoid confusion while breaking into the entertainment industry, reports a website.

"I did try and change it. In England there`s this catalogue called Spotlight, where the actors send in their pictures, and I changed the spelling one time to... `Vice`," said the 42-year-old.
