Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz talks ageism, sexism and her love of complicated women 

Rachel Weisz isn’t like other actresses. Despite being one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood, throughout her 20-year career she’s never succumbed to playing the secondary sidekick or ditzy love interest. She has an Oscar, Olivier Award and an action franchise under her belt but has stayed, largely, well away from rom-coms. At a time when the industry is tarnished with sexism, at the age of 46 her career is the busiest it’s ever been. Oh, and she’s married to the former James Bond.

Born in 1970 to Jewish parents – Hungarian George and Austrian Edith – Weisz grew up in Hampstead Garden Suburb. She studied at Cambridge University along with Sacha Baron Cohen, Alexander Armstrong, Ben Miller, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc (leaving with a 2:1 in English). It was here she fell in love with acting and formed a theatre group that performed at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Her career began in 1992 but broke through in 1996 with a major role in thriller Chain Reaction alongside Keanu Reeves.

Two decades, 43 films and various stints on Broadway later, Weisz is talking to me from Manhattan, where she lives with husband Daniel Craig. The two are US citizens, but Weisz isn’t ruling out a return to the UK. “I spend half my time in north London anyway,” she says. “My favourite place ever is Regent’s Park. And now, with everything that’s happening, I definitely think I’d consider moving back to the UK.” By ‘everything that’s happening,’ she – of course – means, ‘Donald Trump becoming the imminent leader of the free world.’ And, like a true north London liberal, Weisz is uncomfortable with the idea. “I didn’t think either Brexit or Trump were possible,” she says. “I was in London the day the [Brexit] vote was counted and I couldn’t believe it, but in London we were inside our own little bubble, not really hearing the stories from people who we didn’t agree with, and that’s the same in America. People that lived outside of the East Coast and West Coast weren’t being heard. There’s a lot of anger.”

Rachel Weisz has been cast to portray real-life surgeon Dr. James Miranda Barry in a new biopic.

The Mummy star will play the woman who disguised herself as a man in the 1800s to be able to practice medicine in England. The film will be based on Rachel Holmes’ biography The Secret Life of Dr. James Miranda Barry: Victorian England’s Most Eminent Surgeon. It will be adapted for the big screen by Nick Yarborough and produced by Sting’s wife Trudie Styler, Celine Rattray, and Weisz.

Barry’s life has previously played out on the small screen in BBC docu-drama A Skirt Through History.

I just added nearly 600 HD caps of Rachel in ‘Complete Unknown’.


Alderman’s novel charts the love affair between a woman from an Orthodox Jewish background and the wife of her cousin.

Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams are to star in a big screen adaptation of Naomi Alderman’s acclaimed novel Disobedience.

The book, which was published in 2006, is set in north west London and features the return to the Orthodox Jewish family home of Ronit (Weisz) following the death of her father. She then rekindles a romance with her best friend (McAdams), who is now married to her cousin.

Chilean film-maker Sebastian Lelio – whose 2013 portrait of a middle-aged woman, Gloria, won many fans – will direct.

McAdams will next be seen in Marvel’s Doctor Strange opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton, while Weisz stars in Denial, as well as featuring in The Light Between Oceans.

Both actors were involved in Terrence Malick’s 2013 drama To the Wonder, although Weisz’s scenes were cut from the final edit.
