Mrs. James Bond Rachel Weisz covers the April issue of Esquire UK—it now makes total sense now why Oz the Great and Powerful is looking at an $80 million opening!
The British actress doesn't always go for commercial fare (The Mummy and its sequel were her most mainstream films before Oz), but she said she'd love to play a Bond villain opposite her husband, Daniel Craig. "I'd like to! I wouldn't say no. I'm not a snob about entertainment." Weisz definitely fits the bill for a femme fatale.
"Some of the material I'm attracted to is not...it's just not commercial. Which means it's really fucking interesting, you know? It's off-center. It doesn't fit in a genre," she said, perhaps referring to her Oscar-winning turn in The Constant Gardener.
Weisz also had some random praise for Jack White. "Jack White is how I’d like to act. You can tell he isn’t faking it and that the band really don’t know what they’re going to play next," she said. "It’s abandon. He just lets himself go. Abandon plus skill plus technique. That’s a great cocktail."
