Actress Rachel Weisz says sometimes it is good to do independent movies rather than commercial ones.

The 43-year-old, who has done movies like "The Mummy", "The Constant Gardener" and "The Deep Blue Sea", feels some movies should be done for soul creative purposes, reports contactmusic.com.

"Some of the material I'm attracted to is not commercial. Which means it's really f**king interesting, you know? It's off-centre. It doesn't fit a genre. I'm not trying to sound like I'm unaware. I understand that it's a business to some extent," Weisz said.

"But I also think that with independent film, the stakes are not that high. There are things that as big-business-slash-small-art. This cocktail would have been low-business-slash-high-art. It's about creativity rather than merchandising," she added.
