Your lifestyle, your quirk
I’ve always appreciated Rachel Weisz’s beauty, as she is a unique kind of lovely for the Hollywood scene. I’m not sure what it is about her, but she doesn’t look like the cookie-cutter, Barbie-style starlet, yet she is absolutely striking with her long, wavy brunette locks and aquamarine eyes.
"I have countless flaws – have you got a year?” Weisz asked Marie Claire UK modestly, “As one gets older, one learns to deal with the flaws that really affect other people."
Weisz, 42, is also in the spotlight a bit more lately, as she is out stumping for her latest film, The Bourne Legacy, also starring Jeremy Renner and Edward Norton (sorry, no Matt Damon this time).
The actress will be adorning the September cover of Marie Claire UK, and also spoke with the magazine about her marriage to the male equivalent of her own unique beauty, James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
The English pair married more than a year ago in a private ceremony in New York. When Marie Claire asked if it was love at first sight, Weisz bashfully responded, “I’m going to change the subject ... It wasn’t really like that. We’d been friends for ages."
When asked if she is bothered by the increased interest in her personal life now that she is married to another actor, Weisz optimistically responded, “As far as downsides go, I don’t think it’s a big one. It’s something we deal with together.”
Although she didn’t want to talk about her love life (fair enough), she was willing to discuss other elements of her relationship with Craig, like their unique situation of both being successful actors and how they work their life around their professions.
"We don’t sit around talking about acting but you both understand you’ve got to be flexible. Every few months you start a new job."
The newlyweds also balance parenthood with their work and lives, as Craig has a daughter from a previous relationship and Weisz has a 6-year-old son with her former fiancé, filmmaker and producer Darren Aronofsky.
"Like any job, there are days when you're just pulling your hair out,” Weisz admitted regarding motherhood. “The same as anyone who wants to be with their kid or husband. Every mother feels that, don't they? Of course sometime's it's great to get away and feel, 'Hooray, I'm not changing nappies today.' I mean, I love my son but it's not without conflict."
Mark your calendars for August 10, when Weisz can be seen in The Bourne Legacy in theaters.
