Rachel Weisz & Daniel Craig Partner with Opportunity Network

Rachel Weisz holds hands with her son Henry, 6, while strolling the streets on their way to school on Wednesday morning (May 15) in New York City.

It was just announced that the 43-year-old actress and her husband Daniel Craig have partnered with The Opportunity Network, a New York City nonprofit, to put high-achieving, low-income students on the road to the top colleges and successful careers.

Rachel and Daniel provided the organization with a multi-year charitable gift to help expand its programs and continue its mission.

“Some of the brightest, most motivated young people are living in New York City neighborhoods where college seems further away than a foreign country. We want to help give them a passport to a better life,” Daniel said in a statement.

    Very cool, this sounds like a very good cause. He’s a people person, I can see him concentrating heavily on charities in the future. I’d love to see him do some more for comic relief, that sketch he did with catherine tate was comedy gold & strangely hot at the same time

    Dark Knight to rise for next James Bond? Christopher Nolan approached to direct next 007 film

    Christopher Nolan has been approached to direct the next 007 movie.
    It’s early days, but informal talks have begun between Nolan, his representatives and the powers behind the James Bond pictures, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G .Wilson.
    Nolan, who made the Batman trilogy Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises — and had time for Inception in between — would be a cool choice after Sam Mendes decided not to shoot Bond 24.
    Following the amazing box-office and critical success of Skyfall, Mendes was close to saying ‘yes’ to the next instalment, but had to withdraw because of his theatre commitments Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and King Lear with Simon Russell Beale at the National Theatre.
    Also, a lot of unconfirmed chatter has started about Mendes running the National Theatre once Sir Nicholas Hytner steps down in March 2015 after a glorious decade at the helm of the theatrical powerhouse on the South Bank.
    There are all sorts of reasons why Nolan might not want to do the next Bond film, though he is known to be an admirer of Bond star Daniel Craig.
    For starters, he’s in pre-production of his own next big film, Interstellar, with Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, and he might prefer not to go straight from one huge production into another.
    But as one of my Bond experts commented: ‘It does no harm for Broccoli and Wilson to talk with Nolan, even if nothing happens this time round.’
    Mendes told me that there would be at least a year to 18 months of pre-production preparation and then six months of filming involved in Bond 24, and the producers want to shoot the follow-up soon after.

    That would be a heavy workload for anyone.
    But it would be fascinating to see a film-maker of Nolan’s standing build on what Mendes and the 007 gang has already done with Bond.

    Daniel Craig drives DB5 from Skyfall at Nurburgring
    It was a well-kept secret as good as any plot from a James Bond movie, when Bond star Daniel Craig arrived by helicopter this afternoon, only to climb into his Aston Martin DB5 from the film Skyfall.
    Craig was here to drive the stunning silver DB5 as part of Aston’s centenary parade lap, which saw over 100 Aston Martin models spanning the company’s 100-year history complete a full lap of the Nurburgring.
    The popular Bond star was accompanied by other famous cars and drivers including Sir Stirling Moss who drove his 1959 race-winning Aston Martin DBR1 and Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez who drove the one-off CC100 Speedster Concept, which made its world debut at the event.
    Also joining them at the Nurburgring was a 1951 Aston Martin DB2/4 Drophead, as well as a 1953 DB3.
    Bez later joined Craig on a tour of the pit area before jumping in the driver’s seat of the Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S.

    Who is that ugly fat woman who is always with him at every event????? I hate that cow. I don’t know why but I do. She’s very off-putting.

    To Kate Says:

    That “ugly fat” woman is Laura Symons, she’s been his publicis for years. Very nice woman and far more close to him that you’ll ever be you enviouy little SH**I**TT. LOL

    Kate Says:

    Doesn’t she have other clients? She keeps following him everywhere like a dog. Really gets on my nerves.

    To Kate Says:

    Pierce Brosnan, Thandie Newton, Olivia Williams to name a few. She runs her own PR firm, has worked for huge magazines like GQ, is part of the Board of Directors at First Light,
    She gets to know the world and the beauties and the famous, unlike some tw**at sitting behind the keyboard and getting riled and gree with envy.

  21. 21
    Kate Says:

    Thanks for the info. Oh yes, I’m green with envy, but she’s too ugly to bed him anyway. I bet she’d like to. She is with him everywhere as if it was her who got him the Bond role. I think she needs him much more than he needs her. She follows him to events, because it’s great publicity FOR HER. She can pretend to be such a good publicist, whereas she’s just using his glory to promote herself. In my opinion she’s totally useless.

    To Kate Says:

    you are a poor little thing aren’t you?????

    She was already with him when s*H*i*theads like you didn’t give a damn about him. She’s one of his closest friends.

    @21 Says:

    I’m sure you are too ugly too to bed him. Even if you were beautiful on the outsite, your posts show that you are a mean ugly person inside. Mr. Craig is not attracted to that….me thinks!
