Rachel Weisz’s ‘labor of love’
Daniel Craig confirms he’ll be Bond 25
Rachel Weisz has claimed Hollywood didn't "care" when her friend spoke about an alleged sexual misconduct incident involving Harvey Weinstein 20 years ago.
The 47-year-old actress is close friends with Sophie Dix - who alleged in October that the disgraced producer had sexually harassed her back in 1990 - and Rachel has now claimed she and many others knew about Sophie's claim over two decades ago, but "no-one seemed to care".
Rachel Weisz "never thought" she would get married.
The 47-year-old actress tied the knot with 'James Bond' star Daniel Craig back in 2011, but she has now admitted settling down with someone and getting married was never an "ambition" of hers.
Daniel Craig and wife Rachel Weisz are moving to Brooklyn.
The James Bond star is thought to be the mystery buyer of a Brooklyn brownstone mansion sold by author Martin Amis for $6.75 million.
According to the New York Post, word has spread around the borough that 007 actor Daniel, 49, and wife Rachel, 47 - who has an 11-year-old son Henry from her relationship with director Darren Aronofsky - are to relocate to the area.

Q&A: Kidman, Farrell on the surrealism of ‘Sacred Deer’
TORONTO (AP) — Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos' movies aren't the sort that typically attract a stampede of Hollywood A-listers.
His films, which he writes with Efthymis Filippou, are deadpan, midnight-black comedies that carry out grim allegorical absurdities to extreme ends. Characters speak stiltedly in cliches while an intensifying menace envelopes them. Things get weird and then they get brutal.

‘Denial’: Courtroom drama examines Holocaust denier
“Denial” has been struggling at the U.S. box office this fall, but the British production is an unusually gripping and detailed courtroom drama.
The movie is based on the Deborah Lipstadt book, “History on Trial,” about her experiences defending libel charges in a British court in 2000.
Lipstadt described British historian David Irving as a Holocaust denier in her book, “Denying the Holocaust,” and he sued, saying the American writer had damaged his reputation.
