Rachel Hannah Weisz /ˈvaɪs/ VYS) (born 7 March 1970), is an English film and theatre actress as well as a former fashion model who holds both British and American citizenship

Weisz began her acting career at Trinity Hall, Cambridge in the early 1990s, then started working in television, appearing in the detective drama Inspector Morse, the British mini-series Scarlet and Black and the television film Advocates II. She made her film debut in the science fiction movie Death Machine (1994). Her first Hollywood appearance came in the action film Chain Reaction (1996), opposite Keanu Reeves and Morgan Freeman.

For her supporting role in the drama thriller The Constant Gardener (2005), opposite Ralph Fiennes, she received an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors' Guild award. In 2006, Weisz received the BAFTA Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year. She played the Wicked Witch of the East, Evanora, in the fantasy adventure Oz the Great and Powerful (2013). In 2015, she appeared in two films that played at the Cannes Film Festival, Youth and The Lobster.

Weisz also works in theatre. Her stage breakthrough was the 1994 revival of Noël Coward's play Design for Living, which earned her the London Critics' Circle Award for the most promising newcomer. Weisz's performances also include the 1999 Donmar Warehouse production of Tennessee Williams' Suddenly, Last Summer, and their 2009 revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. Her portrayal of Blanche DuBois in the latter play earned her the Olivier Award for Best Actress.

Biography

Weisz began dating American filmmaker and producer Darren Aronofsky in the summer of 2001. They met backstage at London's Almeida Theatre, where she was starring in The Shape of Things. Weisz moved to New York with Aronofsky the following year; in 2005, they were engaged. Their son, Henry Chance, was born in 2006 in New York City. The couple resided in the East Village in Manhattan. In November 2010, Weisz and Aronofsky announced that they had been apart for months, but remain close friends and are committed to bringing up their son together in New York.

Weisz began dating English actor Daniel Craig in December 2010 and they married on 22 June 2011 in a private New York ceremony, with only four guests in attendance, including Weisz's son and Craig's daughter. Weisz, a British citizen by birth, became a naturalised American citizen in 2011.

In 2009, Weisz expressed her views on Botox to Harper's Bazaar – "It should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?" During her career, she has been featured on the covers of magazines such as insideKENT, Vogue and Esquire. She serves as a muse to fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez, and was named L'Oréal's global ambassador in 2010.

On 7 July 2007, she presented at the American leg of Live Earth, along with Alec Baldwin and Kevin Bacon.

Deborah Lipstadt, historienne américaine et auteur reconnue, enseigne l'histoire et la mémoire de la Shoah. Elle se voit confrontée à un écrivain extrémiste, avocat de thèses controversées sur le régime nazi, le Britannique David Irving, qui la met au défi de prouver l'existence de la Shoah. Deborah Lipstadt ayant dénoncé dans un livre les manipulations et les préjugés idéologiques de David Irving, celui-ci l'assigne en justice pour diffamation, en Grande-Bretagne.

Comment, en restant dans les limites du droit, faire face à un négationniste prêt à toutes les bassesses pour obtenir gain de cause, et l'empêcher de profiter de cette tribune pour propager ses théories nauséabondes ?
