Speaking about having to get dressed up for red carpet events and promotional opportunities, the 'Agora' beauty describes the job as a fantasy and acknowledges it is not real life.
thinks her life is like a "fairytale". The 40-year-old actress, who recently split from her long-term partner, film director Darren Aronofsky, still loves having to get dressed up for red carpet events and promotional opportunities, and insists no part of her work feels like real life.

"Promoting a movie is part of the job and it's fiction as much as the movie is," she said. "It's like a fairytale. You get lent a dress and someone does your hair, does your make-up, it's like dressing up and it's not real - nobody looks like that when they wake up in the morning! It's fantasy, it's not real life, it's work and it's not unpleasant. I like it."

Despite utilizing other people to help recreate the "fairytale" image on the red carpet, Rachel, who has a four-year-old son Henry with Darren, makes sure she leads a healthy lifestyle in order to keep her slim figure. She said, "I'm very healthy. I eat well and exercise. Like being an athlete you have to be somewhat in shape because this is what you have got."
