Tilda Swinton Admits She’s Never Auditioned for a Role

Tilda Swinton is one of Hollywood’s most unusual actresses who delivers an incredible performance each time she is on-screen. She is currently gracing theaters with her performance in Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel as octogenarian Madame D. and in Jim Jarmusch‘s Only Lovers Left Alive as a chic vampire.

With such a well-rounded career filled with robust characters, it’s fascinating to hear that the 53-year-old doesn’t consider herself an actress.

“I don’t know what it would take for me to feel like one,” she said. “I understand it’s a strange thing to say because I do keep saying, ‘Yes, I’ll dress up and be in your film.’ But when I hear proper actors talking about their lives and how they approach their work, I feel like I’m up another tree.”

Swinton doesn’t even have a typical actor answer about how she prepares for roles and chooses her projects.

She explained, “When people ask about how I approach a character — well, I wouldn’t know how to approach a character if I tried. People will ask about choosing a role; I don’t choose roles. People will talk to me about preparation. Aside from putting together a disguise, I’m not aware of any preparation at all.”

The star even admitted that she has never auditioned for a role. Perhaps this unorthodox approach to her acting career explains why she has such a unique place in the entertainment industry. Whatever it is, it’s definitely working for her.
