2008 Hot 100 Preview: RACHEL WEISZ

Is it the accent, or perhaps it’s those entrancing eyes? Whatever reason you have, you think Rachel Weisz is hot.

The English actress has won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for her role as Tessa in The Constant Gardner, and she’s also stolen scenes from her male stars in films like About a Boy, Runaway Jury, and, of course, The Mummy.

As Egyptologist Evelyn Carnahan in both the film and its 2001 sequel, The Mummy Returns, Weisz played a strong, smart and sassy woman who took on the ancient evil, the returned-from-the-grave Imhotep. She had some help from Brendan Fraser, but I’m confident that she really could have done it on her own.
