My Weekend Crush

Some very wise lesbians across the pond recently voted Rachel Weisz their hottest of hotties. My only response (despite the survey's potentially dubious methodology) is jolly good show, England. Rachel is magnificent. I do not use that word lightly. But Rachel deserves its full definition. She is a magnificent actress, a magnificent talent, a magnificent beauty. For too much of her early career she struggled to find material that matched her true abilities. But then came “The Constant Gardener.” I defy you to watch this film and not forever fall in love with her. It simply can't be done. Everything that made you care about Tessa came from Rachel: her passion, her sensuality, her determination. So the heartbreak of that film was knowing, from the start, that such a magnificent life force was so brutally ended. Because of that I could only watch that film once, good as it was. Still, I think what really makes Rachel so magnificent is that she has something so wonderfully womanly about her. From her face to, well, all the rest she is quite possibly the perfect Eve. (Click that, trust me on this.) Clearly, that apple never had a chance. Happy weekend, all.

That was a good call Brits! Thank you Dorothy as well for the meaningful depiction of her many skills and beauty. She has a wonderful smile and she's really talented. :)

Meh, the pic's ok - I could do much better than that snake ;)

I definitely fell in like with her in 'The Mummy', she was great fun in that.

Totally agree with that statement! Her performance in The Fountain was breath-taking.

Always did love snakes. Though I find myself distracted from the constrictor somewhat :P

Oh my, yes! I've known about Rachel Weisz for sometime. Let's just say Maria Bello was good in Mummy 3 yet it would have been better with Rachel.

Yet I'm shocked Elaine Cassidy didn't make that list. She did Fingersmith as Maud. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0144187/
