Rachel Weisz Gets Stellar Reviews In 'A Streetcar Named Desire'

Rachel Weisz dons an Isabel Marant dress during press night for her new play A Streetcar Named Desire at London’s National Cafe on Tuesday (July 28)

The 39-year-old British actress was accompanied by her husband, director Darren Aronofsky.

Rachel gives a mesmerizing performance as Blanche DuBois in the Streetcar Named Desire. The Hollywood Reporter says, “Weisz is exactly the right age for Blanche, and though she can do nothing to make her radiant features appear faded, she conveys acutely the woman’s sense of loss and desperate need for emotional nourishment.”

The Daily Telegraph adds, “Weisz rises to the challenge magnificently. Her undoubted beauty is combined here with a fluttering, birdlike nervousness and sudden moments of desperate panic that wrench the heart.”

Rachel will be performing at London’s Donmar Warehouse, through Oct. 3.

That dress is ugly! She is a wonderful actress and I remember her from The Mummy. She certainly looked much healthier back then.

# 6

Love Her dress and she looks fabulous

# 7

Saw the play and she’s great. Wonderful actress and a great person, she took a picture with my daughter.

# 8

She looks hot and i love her and her work.

P.S. Who ever got offended over her last interview is an idiot.

# 9

I love her! Finally this site has a Rachel with talent!

#4 – what did she say in her last interview?

Too bad Rachel’s play is not playing here in the states, would have loved to see it and i’m not surprised over the great reviews, she’s a great actress.

@M:

She said ““I love the way girls in London dress; it’s so different to the American ‘blow-dry and immaculate grooming’ thing.”

Now anybody with half a brain would notice that she’s taking about style but a few morons tried to say that she was attacking america.

Pathetic but what can you do?

I think she looks great in that dress. She looks better than most of the women who are ten years younger than her.

oh please she’s ugly and she’s not talented
she won and keeps working because she’s a jew

Weisz looks old and she is so snotty!

Darren looks like a total geek but i wish i was him .

Lover her so much, great actress and a great looking woman.

@Tim:

Please, people are just too stupid sometimes and are just looking to complain about something.

uh, she does not look good here. she’s not really anything special. she is weird-looking.

@:(((((((((((:

Met Rachel and Darren while shopping in NY and she was the nicest person you can ever meet. Both of them were gracious enough to sign a autograph for me. So who ever says that she’s snotty is lying plus she’s even more beautiful in person.

Rachel looks smoking hot. Beauty, brains and talent, a rare thing today in Hollywood.

Got Tickets to next Saturday’s show. i can’t wait to see it, especially with the great reviews Rachel is getting.

Rachel’s dress looks stunning, It fits her like a glove. Love her whole look and i just adore her work.

She looks beautiful, not liking the dress though

Is this coming to the US? I would love to see it. Rachel is one of my favorite actresses. Great to read the stellar reviews she’s getting for her role.
