Rachel Weisz is an Agora Girl
Rachel Weisz (in Valentino) is joined by producer Fernando Bovaira, director Alejandro Amenabar and costars Max Minghella and Oscar Isaac at the premiere of their new movie, Agora, at the Palais Des Festivals during the 2009 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 17) in Cannes, France.
The 39-year-old British actress, who finished off her look with vintage Cartier earrings and bangles, says the story of her character Hypatia of Alexandria resonates today.
“Really, nothing has changed. I mean, we have huge technological advances and medical advances, but in terms of people killing each other in the name of God, fundamentalism still abounds,” Rachel says. “And in certain cultures, women are still second-class citizens, and they’re denied education.”
