The Beauty of Retrospect, November Actress Edition: Rachel Weisz

I last featured British actress Rachel Weisz in November 2006. It's been way too long since then!

So what has Rachel Weisz been doing all this time?  Wow, where do I begin?

In 2010 she appeared in the The Whistleblower, the true story of Kathryn Bolkovac, an American police investigator who was a force monitor for the United Nations Police. Bolkovac caused a stir when, after losing her job - which involved an effort expose sex trafficking in Bosnia - she sued her former employers for wrongful dismissal. 
She also starred in the 2011 British romantic drama The Deep Blue Sea, a movie based on a Terence Rattigan play about the wife of a judge who has an affair with a Royal Air Force veteran troubled by his memories of World War II. Ms. Weisz's performance as Hester Collyer won her Best Actress awards from both New York Film Critics Circle and the Toronto Film Critics Association.

She's also appeared in the spy thrillers Page Eight and The Bourne Legacy.

Oh yes, her personal life.  Well, she was engaged to American director Darren Aronofsky, but they broke up before getting married.  Instead, she married James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

And although she's been known to have a negative opinion of Americans, at least for their lack of geographical knowledge (see my original post of Rachel Weisz for more about that), she became an American citizen herself in 2011.

That;s it for my look back at actresses for November.  Coming for December - a month of dancers! :-)
