Rachel manages to pull off that unusual achievement of uniting the sexes in admiration of both her talent and looks. A 'serious actress' [read as doesn't get her kit off] with a natural beauty and softness to her that is eminently watchable. Something recently monetised by L'Oreal who announced Weisz as their next global ambassador. Hopefully this means no more frozen smiles from the botulism babe, Linda Evangelista insulting our intelligence as consumers. alexia inge
