Rachel Weisz Kills Chance to Work With Judd Apatow Following Slurred Meeting

July 29, 2010 (6:44 am) GMT
The 'Mummy' star admits that she hasn't been called by the filmaker whom she worships, believing that it is all because she was very intense about her passion for him during their latest meeting.

fears she may have killed her chance to land a role in a comedy because the filmmaker hasn't called since she drunkenly confessed her "passion for him" at a Hollywood party. The "Mummy" star admits she's a big fan of the "" producer, and has been desperate to work on one of Apatow's films for years.

But she worries she went overboard when she professed her love for his work and is now convinced she's lost the opportunity to collaborate with him for good. She says, "I worship Judd Apatow. I think he's extremely funny. His work is ground-breaking... I love his movies."

"I have actually met him a couple of times. I don't actually think it went that well... I'd had a few glasses of champagne. I went up to him and I was very intense about my passion for him... Maybe slurring a little bit. No (he hasn't called me)."
