BANG! NEWS – Rachel Weisz admitted she is more exhausted having a toddler as a mature mother.
The 50-year-old actress said she has less energy when it comes to running around after the toddler daughter she has with husband Daniel Craig than she did when her 13-year-old son Henry – who she has with director Darren Aronofsky – was younger, but she is “really enjoying” having a young child again.
Rachel – who has never publicly revealed the name of her little girl, who turns two in August – said, “I’m more tired than I was last time, this car has more miles on it. But I’m really having fun, I’m really enjoying it, it’s a real blessing.”
But the Black Widow actress thinks being an older parent has made her more patient and “flexible”.
She said, “We tried to go for a walk yesterday, and I had a plan about where we were going to go, but we only made it two metres, because first there was an interesting stick, and then we discovered a moth.
“So we didn’t go anywhere at all. I’m just more flexible, I think.”
Rachel – who does not have a nanny – credits her youthful appearance now to having battled problem skin as a teenager. She said, “I drink a lot of water. And I always had very oily skin – I hated it as a teenager because I had pimples.”
