“A marriage certificate does not transform a life, I did not live in sin before and I did not put in the kitchen since (laughs). But I love being married, marriage means a lot to me and I am very happy.”
So, I get it. Some people are all funny about that whole “living in sin,” or, if you don’t know what that means, “living with a love partner before marriage.” But Rachel? Come on. It’s nice if you have those religious-based sentiments (because sin, by nature, is a religious-affiliated thing), but let’s not pretend, here. Rachel posed nude in the past, and allegedly hooked up with her current husband, Daniel Craig, before she even split up her ex-boyfriend/fiance, Darren Aronofsky, with whom she has a son. Isn’t flaunting your body for money and violating the sanctity of monogamy one of those sin things, too? Or do I just not know enough about this kind of stuff to really make this kind of call?
How funny is that? I mean, seriously? Don’t tell me someone’s not a closet Harry Potter fan.
I also do so love smart British thrillers. They’re generally done far better than American crime thrillers, which have an amazing excess of explosions, vulgarity, and obvious plot twists. I mean, if anyone knows class, it’s Voldemort, you know.
Additionally, Bill Nighy is in this movie, and if that doesn’t convince you that it’s probably a good idea to check it out, then you’re probably dead to me anyway.
Isn’t that so funny about Hollywood and movies and actors? That, given the right set of circumstances, they’ll fall hopelessly in love while on the set? It worked for theseguys, it worked for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie … I know that if I were an independently wealthy and marginally-talented actress, I’d pay my agent to only cast me in Adrien Brody features. Every time. Because chances would be, one of those times would be the juggernaut. And then I could fade back into obscurity with Adrien Brody as my MAN and I would WIN FOREVER.
Also, this movie looks pretty good, but didn’t they kind of give away the plot twist halfway through the trailer?
Oh, you mean you didn’t know Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz were dating? You didn’t even know that Rachel Weisz was still alive after she stopped being in the Mummy movies? Well, you’re not alone, because the rest of the whole world feels the same way.
The couple, who have been dating since last fall, got married last Wednesday in New York, and it sounds like even most of their own families didn’t know about it. The secret wedding only had four guests – Daniel’s kid, Rachel’s kid, and a couple of friends. And that’s how you do a secret wedding, everybody.
If I’d ever seen a James Bond movie in my life, I might have taken a moment here to make some sort of joke about it, you know? Like I might have made some witty allusion about Bond’s stealth, because I assume he’s super stealthy, right? Seriously, my only knowledge of James Bond comes from that scene in Rent where Collins and Angel dress up like Bond and Pussy Galore, and my brother used to have this game for his Nintendo 64 I watched him play sometimes, but that’s all I got. So feel free to make your own jokes in the comments, and while you do, I’m going to fondly remember how hot Rachel Weisz used to be. Deal?
Rachel Weisz, the 39-year-old actress from the Mummy movies spoke out in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK about her distaste of all things Botox. “It should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?” Yeah, that’s a brilliant analogy Rachel, except steroids improve performance and, by your definition, Botox diminishes performance. Duh.
How about this? Let’s ban all dumb actresses from wearing dresses that make them look like a spear of asparagus just searching for some hollandaise. Deal?
