Rachel’s parents highly supported the arts and helped train their children to form their own opinions using family debates. She attended North London Collegiate School and then Benenden School before going to St. Paul’s Girls School. Due to her appearance, she was given the chance to model at 14 years old, and was even put into the spotlight for turning down an offer for the film “King David”. She then attended Trinity Hall, Cambridge, eventually graduating with a degree in English.
One of her first films was “Advocates II”, a television only film. She then took parts in a few series, finding popularity in the period drama “Scarlet and Black”, which she starred in alongside Ewan McGregor. Her first film was “Death Machine” where she had a minor role, but she would become well known for being part of “Chain Reaction” alongside Morgan Freeman and Keanu Reeves. She continued to appear in television series and films up to the late 90s, appearing in “My Summer with Des”, “The Land Girls”, and many more.
Weisz would become a star and earn international recognition through the film “The Mummy” alongside Brendan Fraser. The movie and actors themselves received a lot of criticism but it still became a big hit with audiences. She then starred in the sequel “The Mummy Returns”, which would gross highly and significantly increase Rachel’s net worth. She continued to make appearances in major films such as “Beautiful Creatures”, “About a Boy”, and “The Runaway Jury”. In 2005, she became a part of the film “The Constant Gardener” which became critically acclaimed and had Weisz winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She also received a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award, propelling Rachel to the forefront of actresses. She continued to make films and later tried her hand at indie films as well, such as “The Whistleblower”. She also started to branch out to other mediums including animation and theatre. One of her latest films is “Oz the Great and Powerful” which was released in 2013.
For her personal life, it is known that Weisz was together with producer Darren Aronofsky around 2001; they met after a theatre production and were engaged and even had a son. They eventually separated but remained as good friends in order to raise their child. In 2010, Weisz dated actor Daniel Craig and they married the following year. Craig also has a daughter from a previous marriage. Aside from this, it is also known that Rachel is, perhaps unsurprisingly, against Botox.
