Mrs. Bond, James Bond.
Rachel Hannah Weisz, born March 7, 1970 in Westminster, London, could introduce herself that way. If she wanted to. She is, after all, married to the current 007, blond-haired, blue-eyed Bond Daniel Craig.
Rachel started acting and modeling long before her role as a real-life Bond girl. Her mother, having wanted to act herself, encouraged Rachel’s theatricality and pushed her daughter in that direction. She sent a holiday picture of Rachel to a magazine, which led to Rachel’s first big modeling job.
After graduating with an English degree from Trinity Hall college in Cambridge, Rachel landed a few acting roles on television, but her film break happened in 1996 opposite Keanu Reeves and Morgan Freeman in Chain Reaction.
Nine years and about 20 movie roles later (two of them with mummies!), she earned an Academy Award for her performance in The Constant Gardener.
This year, Rachel mixed it up with a good-looking spy guy (no, not her husband) in The Bourne Legacy, and next year she works on her witchcraft in Oz: The Great and Powerful.
I really like how Rachel plays with length and texture. Wish I had the guts to rock her short, cropped style!
