It's been a busy year for Rachel Weisz. The British actress stars in the much anticipated film The Lovely Bones, playing a mother coming apart at the seams after her daughter's tragic death. Director Peter Jackson has described Rachel as fearless, a title she's not too comfortable with."Really? Because I feel quite scared quite often," Rachel tells Redbook magazine.

"For example, taking on the role of Blanche in Streetcar, a role Vivien Leigh and other great actresses have portrayed, was absolutely terrifying. But fear makes life more interesting."

Rachel shines on December cover of Redbook and reveals in the interview whether she'll ever get married, and what she's learned from being a mom.

She opens up about her relationship with fiancé, director Darren Aronofsky.

"We are engaged, and Darren and I are completely committed to “until death do us part,” although we haven’t made it official with the paperwork yet," Rachel says. "It’s not for any political reason or that we’re waiting for this or for that, but maybe one day we will have an official ceremony."

The proud Mom spends as much time with her son Henry as possible, she says he has taught his mom so much.

"To sing and joke more—he has an unbelievable sense of humor. I’ve learned more patience; he’s definitely taught me to go more with the flow," Rachel says. "I’ve also definitely fallen even more in love with his father. Henry’s also reinforced how little I know about science. He recently asked me how a battery works, and I had absolutely no idea. I usually say, “Why don’t you ask your dad?”
