Tilda Swinton only works with people she likes


When you love your job, everything is easier and when you love the people you work with, the job becomes fun and enjoyable, according to Tilda Swinton.

The 53-year-old actress started her movie career back in the 1980’s and she made her first films with director Derek Jarman. She worked with him for nine years, during which time they made seven movies together and became great friends.

That’s where Tilda realized that if she was going to work it would be only with the people she personally liked and enjoyed spending time with.

TildaShe says: ”I first started making films with Derek Jarman in England in the 1980’s.. we were very close friends and we made 7 films together over the nine years before he died in 1994.

”I learned very early on that filmmaking is amongst the most fun things that can be done in a group, in the cold and the rain in the middle of the night when the food has run out.. so ever since then, I have chosen the people first above every other element.. life is too short to be working alongside people you don’t like A LOT for years on end.”
