Rachel Weisz's desire to give back and help students get into university and graduate has resulted in Variety magazine honouring her as one their 'Power of Women' New York honorees and interestingly has enhanced her popularity with entertainment fans (Variety - April 21).
Her connection with fans in the view of some entertainment observers has become stronger as she is receiving much praise from people on social media over her willingness to help students from the age of thirteen years old pursue their education from a grassroots stage to graduate school with the charity "The Opportunity Network".
One might think that people would be focused on her sensational appearance on the red carpet at the recent 2015 MET Gala but what many people on social media including herself have been talking about most is her involvement in this charity and some entertainment observers believe that the impact will be felt at the box office as a result.
She has not been shy about disclosing how important education was to her parents who wer immigrants and their belief about how important it was to go to a good university played a major role in her decision to be part of this charity.
Until the award announcement no one knew of her involvement with this charity or what motivates this talented actress off the film set but now that they do her popularity with fans on social media has skyrocketed.
Rachel Weisz now has a bond with fans that may actors would love to have and arguably was not there before this disclosure about her involvement with "The Opportunity Network" and the benefits are likely going to be felt at the box office with the upcoming release of her films "The Lobster" and "Youth", each of which will hit the movie theaters in the upcoming months..
An actor who 'gives back to their community' with both their money and 'time' will almost always be one whom entertainment fans will support and appreciate and in 2015 there will likely be no better example than Rachel Weisz who is receiving attention from fans not for her acting or beautiful looks but for charitable work.
