Sigourney Weaver made the most of the unseasonably warm weather in Los Angeles on Friday as she enjoyed a swim in the sea with husband Jim Simpson.

Sigourney and Jim, also clad in a wetsuit, appeared in good spirits as they flashed smiles while making their way up the beach.

The venture into the sea was clearly a fun one, with Jim also clutching a pair of flippers in his hands.

Their daughter Charlotte, 30, was also at the beach, making it a leisurely family day out. 

Sigourney has certainly been making the most of the nearby beach, having been seen in recent weeks enjoying days out with her daughter and husband of almost 40 years. 

Her latest outing  comes after the actress – whose father Pat Weaver created the Today show – appeared on the February issue of InStyle

Speaking with reference to her dressed-down appearance on the publication’s cover, Weaver spoke about how she felt fashion trends would change after the end of the global pandemic; the actress noted that the future differences would be fine with her.

‘Maybe dressing up will become more personal, more individual — and more comfortable, which I think is a great thing,’ she said. 

Weaver discussed multiple topics during her interview with the fashion publication, including her beginnings as an actress and how she reacted to her former acting professors dismissing her talent as a performer, which she has reportedly taken as a learning experience.

‘They said that I didn’t have the talent to be in the business, that they didn’t think I should be at the school. It took me many years to get over it….if anyone reads this who’s an acting student, do not do what I did—don’t take it so seriously and actually believe them.’ 

The three-time Academy Award nominee then spoke about how she proved her detractors wrong and how her subsequent success as an actress has allowed her to modify the parts that she is given, stating that: ‘I often have…input.’

Weaver elaborated: ‘That’s both the advantage and the disadvantage of working with me.’

The Paul actress also gave her opinion on relationship advice and how she believed in looking inward when facing issues with a partner; she has been married to stage director Jim Simpson since 1984 and the two share a daughter named Charlotte, aged 30. 

The actress opined: ‘I’ve always believed what they say in the psychology magazines—that whatever is wrong with your current relationship, you’ll re-experience it in the next one. So why not stick with this great guy who you found and work things out with him?’

Weaver also discussed how her stage name was not the result of a larger play about changing her identity, which many sources have speculated about; the actress was born as Susan Alexandra Weaver.

‘I didn’t realise what a huge step it was to change my name, or what it probably said about me wanting to go my own way. I didn’t see it in that context. I just didn’t like being called Susie…and look, now some people call me Siggy, which is just like Susie. You can’t escape your destiny.’
