Hollywood superstars don’t usually want to talk about their sleeping habits, but it has been revealed that A List stars Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz have been sleeping in separate beds in order to stay in character for a new Broadway production of a Harold Pinter play which they are both due to star in. The real life married couple are also playing a married couple in the production of ‘Betrayal’ on the New York stage. For those of you that don’t know the classic theatre script, Rachel’s character Emma cheats on Daniel’s Robert.
Method acting is nothing new to theatre land, but it has been reported that both actors are taking their roles extremely seriously and want to do everything possible to put on a memorable production. A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “Daniel and Rachel are taking their roles very seriously. When the curtain comes down they are staying in character to keep momentum and have taken themselves to separate bedrooms to keep focused. They feel they cannot go home and snuggle up together at night and then switch into character.”
Daniel and Rachel were married in 2011 and haven’t worked together professionally since. Their decision to stay in character has apparently concerned some of the production team on the set of the play as a source revealed: “It’s been a big talking point backstage and the production team were a little concerned as Daniel and Rachel haven’t worked together since they married.”
Whilst the state of the couple’s relationship is certainly none of the public’s business in reality, as long as both actors are getting enough sleep the play production team should have little to worry about. The importance of having a decent bed to sleep on cannot be underestimated. Adjustable beds are often useful for people in professions that involve a lot of physical movements. Ensuring that the body is as supported as possible as it rests will help reduce the chances of serious muscle strains and injuries.
It may be true that many people often think of adjustable beds for the elderly, but the fact is that they benefit people of every age. Scientists have recently discovered the first mechanical reason as to why our brains need to sleep. There are certain cleaning mechanisms within the brain which simply work better when the brain is in sleeping mode.
“This study shows that the brain has different functional states when asleep and when awake,” explains study researcher Maiken Nedergaard, of the University of Rochester. “In fact, the restorative nature of sleep appears to be the result of the active clearance of the by-products of neural activity that accumulate during wakefulness.”
People tend to sleep best when they are using a bed which provides their body with the best support possible. Adjustamatic beds are worth investigating for anyone who feels that they are struggling to achieve the night’s sleep that their mind and body deserves.
