Rachel Weisz is cryptic about maybe having Daniel Craig’s blue-eyed baby


Rachel Weisz covers the latest issue of Lucky Magazine – I think it may actually be the September issue, and it just got released later than most magazines? Perhaps. Anyway, Rachel, Lucky, etc. The photo shoot is cute but not particularly groundbreaking, but this is one of Rachel’s most extensive interviews since marrying Daniel Craig (although chronologically, this interview took place just days BEFORE her wedding). And she talks about babies. Please, God, let babies happen with this couple. I want to see Rachel knocked up and I want to see Daniel being forced to walk the red carpet with her, holding her hand because she’s overflowing with his seed. Pleasepleaseplease. Here are the highlights from the interview (the full piece is online here):

Rachel on shoes and developing a character: “Shoes can turn you into someone else in an instant. I did a film called The Brothers Bloom, and I wore really clunky boots—and I was this eccentric weirdo. And then in The Whistleblower”—an independent film released this August, where she plays a cop who exposes a European sex trafficking ring—”I wore police boots that made me walk tough.” And there’s her latest: Dream House, a thriller opening in September. “I am a wife redoing a home we just bought, and I wear a lot of light sneakers that are all cute and homey and make me feel kind of doo-doo-doo, I’m domestic and painting.”

Rachel claims she’s never recognized on the streets: “This is New York, where everyone is a star in their own movie; no one gives a f–k.”

More on shoes: “I’ve had this conversation with a girlfriend for 15 years that is kind of a joke, and kind of deathly serious, about finding the perfect pair of shoes,” Weisz continues. “I always want to feel like I can take off if I have to—the British expression is, ‘shoes that let you run for the bus’—but I love high heels too! Sometimes it’s fun wearing very high heels and feeling needy … needy is great, because you feel you need to rely on someone.”

The part of the article about Daniel Craig (it sounds revisionist to me): That someone, as it turns out, is a man whom Weisz will, just a few days after this interview, marry: Daniel Craig, the sixth (and, I believe history will judge, best) James Bond in the 49-year-old movie franchise. They had known each other casually for years but became close when filming Dream House, in which they play husband and wife. Both were recently single (Craig was previously married in the early ’90s and had just broken up with a long-term girlfriend; Weisz has a five-year-old son, Henry, with Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky), and by June they were married, in a tiny ceremony in upstate New York that included only their children and two close friends as witnesses. Whatever else they may share—and Weisz is extremely circumspect about the relationship—there is a mutual fondness for fashion: A few months ago the two were spotted shopping at Louis Vuitton in London’s Mayfair.

Rachel on Alexander McQueen: “His pieces are works of art, but he had such a bizarre relationship to his own body …he was always on diets and …well, my perception is that his clothes were almost like torture instruments.” In her day-to-day life Weisz dresses down in what she calls “good quality city street wear”: Today it’s a simple white T-shirt plus jeans and brown high-heeled canvas boots from American label Rag & Bone. “These may be the perfect boots, actually,” she says, waving her foot in my direction. “I can walk all day in them.”

Her childhood home in Hampstead Garden Suburb in North West London: Her suburb was, she says, “a very freaky place” with no shops or pubs (the woman who designed the area was a teetotaler, and it was in the original deed to the area that no alcohol could be sold there); the only place people could gather was the church. “I don’t know if the houses are haunted, but I think the suburbs are where bad things happen because it’s the place where people try to live out bourgeois values and …well, if you don’t let out what you really are, it’s gonna come out in weird ways. You know? I think weird sh-t happens in the suburbs.”

Her career dreams before becoming an actress: “Actually, I wanted to be a detective. And a paleontologist. I was really into fossils. Though perhaps I was just trying to impress adults that I knew that word.” Despite being an indifferent student until she was a teenager, Weisz went on to study English at Cambridge University, where she cofounded the theatrical troupe Cambridge Talking Tongues.

BABIES: Eventually, the conversation rolls back around to family, and I can’t help wondering: Does she plan to have any more children? She smiles. “Oh, I wouldn’t make one just for the sake of giving my son a sibling. But …you never know.” She smiles again, nervously, proclaims her fondness for Baby Gap and then-an interesting thought in passing, considering the azure peepers of her new husband: “There’s nothing like a blue-eyed boy in a stripy blue shirt.”

Is the part about babies evidence that Rachel is currently knocked up? Eh, I don’t know. She wore a tight little red dress one month ago, and there was no bump. But if Beyonce has taught me anything, it’s never a sure thing to dismiss the Bump Watch. At the very least, I’d say that Rachel actively WANTS to have another baby and she and her new husband are going at it all of the time trying to conceive. HOT. Jesus, just writing that gave me a little biscuit twinge. Mm… I want to see Daniel push Rachel against a wall and… do something. Anything.

    Satsuma Whats-her-name (the woman Craig dumped for her) is going to claw this bitch’s eyes out when she reads this!

  2. monette says:

    This dress has been passed around more than Parasite Hilton.

  3. LL says:

    Daniel Craig was recently single before they got together?


  4. lucy2 says:

    The “both were recently single” stuff is a bit iffy.
    If they do want kids, I hope they wait just a bit, considering how quickly they got involved and got married. Make sure that really works before bringing a baby into it!

  5. marybeth18 says:

    Wow, EVERYONE is wearing that star-print lately.

    Though I think there is drama surrounding the beginning of their relationship, I hope for the sake of her son that they are and remain very happy.

  6. LadyJane says:

    LOVE her. I too want to see that pushing up against the wall action. Swoon.

  7. gee says:

    I want to be her when I grow up.

  8. Pyewacket says:

    I have a strange dislike for her. I am not sure why, but have never cared for her as an actress and have never liked how she comes off in interviews.

  9. Erinn says:

    I’m no genetics wiz or anything, but she has brown eyes… a blue eyed boy wouldn’t be all that likely, would it?
    Unless maybe she’s got recessive brown? I don’t actually know what color eyes her son has though.

    Hopefully she’s not going to just have a baby solely to give her son a sibling… but I don’t think anyone would actually do that so literally. Well, there are a lot of crazies in the world I guess, but still.

  10. Bodhi says:

    I agree about blue-eyed babies in blue stripey tops, my son is even more adorable in blue tops! 🙂

  11. Hey Nonny says:

    Those star prints look like glow-in-the-darks.

    I’d take these two over Natalie Portman and Darren A/Millipied/whoever the baby daddy is. HOT HOT HOT!!!

    no. 9 Erinn – You’re right, brown eyes usually have more precedence than blue eyes.

  12. JCH says:

    About the blue-eyed and brown-eyed thing. Yes, brown eyes are dominant, but Daniel Craig has blue eyes and if she has a gene for blue eyes, then a blue eyed child is possible. Both my parents have brown eyes, my grandmothers both had blue eyes so each of my parents had the recessive that joined together to create my eyes. Its basic Xx biology from junior high.

  13. Redd says:

    overflowing with his seed? biscuit twinges? shiver me biscuits!

  14. Melissa says:

    Rachel Weisz is the bomb. So stunning.

  15. curleque says:

    I can understand why she’s being cryptic about the blue-eyed babies. How old is she? 42? You never do know, but chances are “no.”

  16. spinner says:

    I am a blond with blue eyes. My daughter has brown eyes & married a brown eyed man. Their first child (daughter) has blue eyes & blond hair. She looks like me. They went on to have 3 more daughters…all with brown eyes. Very interesting how things turn out.
    I wish Rachel & Daniel the best. I love them as a couple.

  17. the original bellaluna says:

    As the “voice of experience” (I am a blue-eyed mom of 3, whose fathers had brown eyes), blue (or even green) eyes are not easily come by. Especially when one of the parents has brown eyes. And I’m sorry, but, exotic beauty that Rachel is, her baby would probably have brown eyes.

    My “surprise!” baby (at 39 – don’t count them out yet; if it’s meant, it’ll happen) had blue eyes for almost the first year of his life. But, hub’s brown-eyed genes won out, and now baby’s eyes are hazel, at best.

    (But ALL 3 of my kids have my mouth, my brows, my eye shape. The “Inmann mouth” my mom calls it.) 😉

  18. It is ME!! says:

    Thank you, Kaiser! I thought I was the only one who wanted a Weisz-Craig baby to appear.


    Love them both!!

  19. It is ME!! says:

    Genetics is WAY more complicated than the simple Punnett squares everyone did in high school biology. Hell, two brown eyed parents can make a blue eyed baby, even if all the grandparents have brown eyes, too. And scientists still can’t explain what genes control the creation of hazel eyes (they know that it has something to do with Rayleigh scattering and the different levels of melanin in the iris, but don’t know which gene(s) control whether or not a kid will have hazel eyes). Even the definition of hazel eyes is not clear cut. Some people think it is blue with other colors; others think that it is when the iris has both green and brown. So to outright say that a Weisz-Craig baby will have brown eyes, it could be misleading.

    Can we get a geneticist on this board STAT?! LOL…

  20. operagirl says:

    Me: very brown eyes with bits of gold. My mom has brown, dad has very clear sea blue eyes.

    Hubster: very very sea blue eyes. His mother had brown eyes. Father’s eyes, unknown.

    All of our kids have green-amber eyes with dark green rings around the iris. Kind of funny how consistent it was, too.

    In other words, genetics are funny things.

  21. Camille says:

    Rachel is a stunning looking woman, but that cover is awful! It doesn’t even look like her. Photoshopping has become a horrible disease at this point 🙁 .

    p.s. Brown eyes are BEAUTIFUL!

  22. kiko says:

    people her eyes are hazel green not brown…anyway this pregrancy must happen!

  23. Jeannie says:

    Rachel’s first son Henry has blue eyes:


    I hope for a girl with dark hair and blue eyes like Liz Taylor.

  24. ablear says:

    “overflowing with his seed”? “knocked up”? How gross. Someone pass the barf-bucket. Surely Craig can do better than this if he needs another child.

  25. coucou says:

    I want to like her, really i do…but she just smolders of snark. I like shoes, too, some i might love…but to go to the extreme of channelling personalities through them…? I’d save that for my acting job.

    Or maybe i’m just jealous, i’ve never walked a mile in her Louboutins…who am i to talk?
