Rachel Weisz Covers Redbook Dec. 2009

Rachel Weisz Covers Redbook Dec. 2009

Rachel Weisz shows off her gorgeous smile on the cover of Redbook magazine’s December issue.

The 39-year-old actress, who will star in next month’s The Lovely Bones, spoke about marriage, fearlessness and what she’s learned from her son Henry.

On whether she’ll ever marry her fiance, Darren Aronofsky: “We are engaged, and Darren and I are completely committed to ‘until death do us part,’ although we haven’t made it official with the paperwork yet. It’s not for any political reason or that we’re waiting for this or for that, but maybe one day we will have an official ceremony.”

On being described as fearless by The Lovely Bones director Peter Jackson: “Really? Because I feel quite scared quite often. For example, taking on the role of Blanche in Streetcar, a role Vivien Leigh and other great actresses have portrayed, was absolutely terrifying. But fear makes life more interesting.”

On what she’s learned from her son, Henry: “To sing and joke moreā€”he has an unbelievable sense of humor. I’ve learned more patience; he’s definitely taught me to go more with the flow. I’ve also definitely fallen even more in love with his father. Henry’s also reinforced how little I know about science. He recently asked me how a battery works, and I had absolutely no idea. I usually say, “Why don’t you ask your dad?”

Rachel‘s issue of Redbook is on newsstands TODAY!

    awful cover

  • Wadnam

    wow, she’s so gorgeous.

  • FanofJJ

    She’s very pretty, but the cover isn’t that great. Sometimes more really is more.

    I think she might be married on the down low. Someone I know swears they attended her wedding. Not sure why she wouldn’t admit it though.

  • Shill

    If she were any hotter the cover would be on fire!

  • zena

    That story about her son and the battery is cute, funny, and true! The only reason I even know about a battery at all is because my major force fed us poison…ahem…I mean physics in undergrad.

    Lovely photos of Rachel otherwise!

  • sotos

  • Non-blonde

    Gorgeous Rachel. As always.

  • helen w.

    she sounds SO happy, and looks so fresh clean prety that i think she’s the actress i’m most jealous of right now.

  • Red


    Maybe the reason Rachel will not admit she’s married is because she is really not married. I think you friend is lying to you.

    As for Rachel, she’s a amazing actress and very nice person with a great head on her shoulders.

  • dani

  • LuckyL

    she looks awful and I have zero respect for actresses that trash America and support Polanski.

  • Beetlejuice samm s


    I have zero respect for an idiot who not only can’t read but can’t interpret what people are saying and wears her jealousy on her sleeve
    You give all Americans a Bad Name LuckyL

    P.S. I love the cover and i love Rachel, she’s an intelligent and gifted actress.

  • angelina

    One more thing Lucky L, Rachel never supported Polanski. You should think twice before saying stupid things.
