Blind Item #5

Apparently the day before the red carpet and the night of the red carpet was the first time this couple actually spoke in person in months. Things had not been going well for them at all consisting of two foreign born actors. One, an A list mostly movie actor and the other a B+ list mostly movie actress.

Weisz and Craig were in the Daily Mail yesterday.

laura ramona said...

yup

cheesegrater15 said...

Rachel Weisz seems like a very unpleasant person. I've always gotten a fussy, bitchy Anne Hathaway-esque vibe from her.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

Did you see my cousin Rachel? Super fucking creepy weird black comedy

Brayson87 said...

At this point I'm suspicious of all British couples lol

Tricia13 said...

Great film.... shot in a house I grew up near(was Demme right?) he lived on that block as well...
She gave a mesmerizing performance imho

JL said...

Craig looks unwell.

Kelly said...

I just watched that movie on a plane ugh... "black comedy"? Also I used to like Sam Claflin

Moose said...

Speaking of Weisz, I saw a trailer for her new movie "Disobidience", which comes out the end of the month. It's looks excellent. She may not be the nicest of people, but she is almost always interesting to watch.

Rachel Weisz starred in "The Whistleblower," about the U.N.'s involvement in human trafficking and sex abuse. That was a brave movie and a brave role to take and I'll always hold her in some level of respect for that.

Daniel Craig looks terrible. Maybe it's a self-hating thing after returning to 007 after he clearly wanted out. Whatever happened to that miniseries he was going to make about the dangers of our constant surveillance state?

Her best roles were in The Mummy and Constantine, love those movies. Not really memorable in much else.

Beckett said...

I want a Kl ohe reveal

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

Dude that was Rachel getting married. My cousin Rachel directed by Roger Mitchell

Guesser said...

Why exactly did Weisz and Craig get married? They never seemed all that into each other,no children with each other? They don't even do the power couple routine.

AIP said...

@DDonna... good! I want him out as well. Him holding on means we’ll never get Idris as Bond.

mapstothestars said...

The Brothers Bloom, she stole that.

cheesegrater15 said...

Hate to burst your panties, AIP, but they've already said Idris will never play Bond. He was born to play the role, but it ain't gonna happen.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Sorrry to say @AIP, but my bet is the window on Idris Elba as Bond has closed. Even if Craig was hit by a lorry today, Elba is 45. They get maybe 2-3 movies out of him. Plus, the racial cast-against-type thing for "The Dark Tower" bombed (which was NOT his fault).

Personally, I'm against blackwashing as much as I am against whitewashing. Johnny Depp never should have been cast as Tonto, Liam Neeson was wrong for Ras al Ghul, for example. In the same way, James Bond and, most recently, Meg Murray are iconic white characters and should be played by white actors/actresses.

The biggest character perversion I see on the horizon, however, is the next Shaft movie, where the iconic (and iconoclastic!) character is now an FBI agent. That's even more subversive than making him white, IMHO.

AIP said...


Lads, I know that! Will it be any clearer if I change the tense: “meant that we’d never get Idris...”

I have no issue with Bond changing race for two reasons : I subscribe to it being part of the 00-designation in the Broccoli genre, as opposed to the Fleming setting. If we have no issues bringing the character out of the Cold War which was intrinsic to Fleming’s Bond, yet there are no calls to keep the series as a period piece,

And as much as I love the series - and I really do - it needs a kick up the arse. The first Bourne films showed that the genre can be properly engaging and genuinely appealing to women (if my friends and colleagues are anything to go by: the women were far more excitedly for it than the men.) Pulling Bond out of its lazy old tropes and into the likes of Africa, with an actor that brings a new energy would save it, rather than just keep it on organ support.

But sadly that’s not going to happen, and we’re lumbered with more feckin’ Craig!

(Note: i’ve Said it before, I won’t lose my mind if Bond became a woman, but I don’t think it makes much sense, as (Broccoli) Bond is the sledgehammer you use to crack a nut, and that’s not really how women operate. But hey, if there was to be an expanded 00-Niverse, there is certainly a place for it... just look at the Bond homage they snuck into Black Panther!

AIP said...

Sorry, what... John Shaft as a Fed? No, no, no. That’s just stupid.

Dianita said...

Rachel was excellent in The Lobster

Charisma S said...

lol at the few people talking about disliking Rachel or her not being a nice person because they...get a vibe. Lmao

DDonna Tarttty said...

Just to show how much a misfire from the ground up the "Shaft" reboot is going to be:

First, they cast Usher as the new Shaft. Ugh. Guy is smooth, but he's not "bad" or "badass." Not sure he can act, either.

Here's the elevator pitch plot: "The film follows John Shaft Jr., a.k.a. JJ, a cybersecurity expert for the FBI who seeks out a different kind of expertise from his absentee dad, John Shaft (Jackson) after his best friend’s untimely death."

Here's what director Tim Story had to say: "My Shaft movie is going to be definitely not straight action. We’re going action-comedy or comedy-action, I’m not exactly sure which one comes first."

Make. It. Stop.

Fassbender and Vikander? If they were even there?

Dusty Fairy said...

She was excellent in The Constant Gardener, as well. I loved that film. I met Daniel Craig when he was on Broadway with Huge Jackmeoff and he looked skinny, unattractive, and disgusting then. Nothing like the hotness he was on screen.

Freckles said...

Mr Craig looks like he is doing too much of something(s) lately

Terry Teratoma said...

She's supposed to be pregnant, so if they haven't been together in months we have a whole new list of potential blinds. I don't think this is them, though.

emeraldcity said...

I've never liked Craig as Bond , terminally sulky and utterly charmless. However I think this fairly sudden deep unattractiveness might be due to medication, he has had a good few injuries in the past two movies , production had to be stopped for a few weeks at one point so steroid medication for injuries and pain and the bloated puffy, way out of condition look might be a key factor.
