Rachel Weisz Speaks Out Against a Female James Bond
---------------------------------------------------
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Rachel Weisz spoke out
against the idea of gender swapping the character of James Bond.
She believes that women deserve to see their own respective
stories be taken place on the big screen rather than relying on
switching the male version of a character with a female. With
the character of Bond, Weisz notes that the original intention
of author Ian Fleming was to create a character "who is
particularly male and relates in a particular way to women." As
Fleming "devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular
character," switching the gender for the sake of switching it
loses a vital aspect of Bond's character as how he perceives
what masculinity is and the way he treats women with this view
is one of the key factors that makes him who he is.

The Disobedience actress went on to suggest that perhaps
storytellers could create new works depicting compelling female
characters who are in their own respective narratives:

"Why not create your own story rather than jumping on
to the shoulders and being compared to all those
other male predecessors? Women are really fascinating
and interesting and should get their own stories."

The idea of a female James Bond has floated around the film world
for years, however it started to gain some real traction when it
was unclear whether Daniel Craig would return to the famed role
following 2015's Spectre. Many speculated as to what was occurring
behind the scenes and contract-wise between Sony Pictures and the
lead. Weisz would certainly know a thing or two about these
negotiations as she has been married to Craig since 2011.

Nevertheless, Craig has been confirmed to portray the iconic agent
one more time in the upcoming Bond 25. While the film has no
director or other cast members confirmed, it is slated for a
November 8, 2019 release date.

Weisz stars alongside Rachel McAdams in the upcoming Disobedience,
set for limited release on April 27, 2018.

She's British so I assume she's based in the UK so maybe she has a bit
of a different attitude than the typical Hollywood producer.

I remember when ATOMIC BLONDE came out and people were declaring it 'a
female James Bond film'. Having seen it, i think it was closer to a
female Jason Bourne. Still, I think the point to be made is: if a
female spy action (not lame comedy) film is made, what are the odds that
it won't be reviewed as 'a female James Bond'? Giving women their own
story isn't going to change that view/comparison from the movie-going
society. They cannot get out from under the 'sacred cow' of James Bond
simply by avoiding being the next James Bond lead.

Actually, Atomic Blonde is more of a female John Wick. And that was
meant as a compliment.

And there's nothing inherently wrong with being compared to James Bond
if you're in the same ballpark. Jason Bourne was compared to James Bond,
too. But that didn't stop people from making Jason Bourne movies and it
didn't stop them from being worth seeing.

Yep, she's British ... which might have explained why she actually has
a brain, *except* Doctor Who is British too.

that's the thing. It's seems that Hollywood has a real problem coming
up with lead roles in action movies for women. For some reason there's
only been a handful that have been made over the past few decades even
though it's been shown that it can work (see Ripley, Alice (of
Resident Evil fame) and Lara Croft) as three characters that were a
success at the box office.) No reason why the writers couldn't come up
with more (assuming there's money to put behind a script/movie with a
woman as the lead for an action flick.)

You know that Rhona Mitra's (physical) "assets" are the results of
plastic surgery, right? I came across a website years ago that had
"before" pictures of her, from the waist up, in which she was topless
and she apparently barely qualified as an A cup.

Yep. But she's the model for Lara Croft, who is supposed to have huge
tracts of land.
Of course super nutcase Jolie had hers cut off, because, super nutcase.

that's the thing. It's seems that Hollywood has a real problem coming
up with lead roles in action movies for women. For some reason there's
only been a handful that have been made over the past few decades even
though it's been shown that it can work (see Ripley, Alice (of
Resident Evil fame) and Lara Croft) as three characters that were a
success at the box office.) No reason why the writers couldn't come up
with more (assuming there's money to put behind a script/movie with a
woman as the lead for an action flick.)

Hmm. Will she wear huge falsies?
Judging by the pictures I've seen nothing unnatural going on there.
she's not exactly Rhona Mitra

You know that Rhona Mitra's (physical) "assets" are the results of
plastic surgery, right? I came across a website years ago that had
"before" pictures of her, from the waist up, in which she was topless
and she apparently barely qualified as an A cup.
Yep. But she's the model for Lara Croft, who is supposed to have huge
tracts of land.
I thought the term was "beautiful plumage".... ;-)

Of course super nutcase Jolie had hers cut off, because, super nutcase.
To borrow a phrase, that woman (Jolie) is "crazier than a shithouse rat".

As for being "jolie" (the French word for beautiful), she doesn't even
make my top million, let alone my top 10.

She believes that women deserve to see their own respective
stories be taken place on the big screen rather than relying on

particularly male and relates in a particular way to women." As
Fleming "devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular
character," switching the gender for the sake of switching it
loses a vital aspect of Bond's character as how he perceives

humans) will get you for that.

If you want a "Female James Bond", how about do a "Modesty Blaise"
picture right? "My Name is Modesty" was OK, but so low-budget and
set bound that it barely scratched the surface. (Plus, it was from
the pre-Willy Garvin era).

I've not seen the first one, but the second was to my understanding shot
very quickly and cheaply to get something done before the rights reverted.
That said, it was a decent untold story from very early in Modesty's
timeline. Just would have wished for more budget for exterior and action
scenes. And of course her longtime (platonic) companion Willie Garvin
who joined up with her after she took over the international crime network.

(She was never a spy per-se, but after her "retirement" she would do favors
for British intelligence)

"before" pictures of her, from the waist up, in which she was topless
and she apparently barely qualified as an A cup.
Yep. But she's the model for Lara Croft, who is supposed to have huge
tracts of land.
Of course super nutcase Jolie had hers cut off, because, super nutcase.
Give her a break. She had four kinds of deadly cancer.
She had NO kinds of deadly cancer, just family history. So she lopped
off her breasts.
She had *possible* early ovarian cancer, so she had that ripped out,
bringing on early menopause.
Ok. I thought she had an actual diagnosis. But didn't she have the
genetic screening confirming that she had inherited the bad genes?
I'm not 100% sure if she was confirmed herself or if it was just
confirmed in relatives.

It was reported when she did her doctor had told her that without
surgery she had about a 80-85% chance of breast cancer, about 1-2%
with surgery.

While it's possible she got bad medical advice (and I would certainly
seek a second opinion before going under the knife) with odds like
that it's difficult to fault her.

Your recall is the same as I had. Can't say that I blame her for
having the surgery with such a high likelihood of getting cancer. As
you say she hopefully confirmed that likelihood from multiple doctors.
Also there's the fact that she could have cosmetic surgery to end up
looking much the same even the removal if she desired which at least
removes that negative aspect.

If they gave me a 10% chance, I'd be at least considering similar
surgery, you can be damned sure of that!

Do bear in mind that her mother and her aunt had previously died of
breast cancer. I imagine this was not the first time she had had this
particular discussion with her doctor.

I cannot possibly imagine a woman with a diagnosis like that NOT
getting a second opinion. (Or perhaps 3 or 4 opinions) Having your
breasts removed is about as intimate as it gets and is definitely not
something to be done casually.

I'm not a fan of boob jobs generally but if it's recovery from surgery
am a lot more understanding than of the ones who do it just for ego or
career advancement.

In 2015, she had both ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed because her
doctor, the same one who had treated her mother who had died of ovarian
cancer, found pre-cancerous indications. The tumor on one ovary was
benign. She does have the mutation on the BRCA 1 gene, which makes all
these cancers highly likely.

Then she made By the Sea with Brad Pitt, her husband, about how awful
the marriage of a couple had become in which the woman had her medical
condition, a movie I've seen that was just as awful as you imagine.

She then filed for divorce the next year but didn't make a movie about
that.

I don't agree with anim on her surgeries. That movie, on the other hand,
clearly indicated something screwy with her mental state.

That was the first time we knew she was a nutcase. She was showing the
vial off to reporters at red (hah) carpet events and such.

http://www.eonline.com/news/590687/billy-bob-thornton-explains-why-angeli
na-jolie-wanted-to-wear-a-vial-of-his-blood-around-her-neck

Angelina Jolie wearing Billy Bob Thornton's blood in a vial around her
neck is one of the crazier things she's done for love, but according to
the actress' ex-husband, it didn't seem all that crazy at the time.

Thornton spoke to students at Loyola Marymount University's School of
Film & Television last week and was asked about the Academy Award
winner's infamous jewelry. "[A] vial of blood is very simple. Angie came
home one day with a kit she bought," he said. "You know those lockets
you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in it or
something like that and wear it around your neck? That's what it was.
She bought two of those. We were apart a lot because she's off making
Tomb Raider and I'm making Monster's Ball. We were on opposite ends‹we
see each other for two weeks and whatever."

"She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little
razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these
lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or
daughter's baby hair in one. Same thing. From that we were wearing quart
jars of blood around our necks," he joked as the crowd laughed. He
added, "And we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon."

The actors divorced in 2003, though Thornton and Jolie have stayed in
touch since then.

Am pretty sure Usenet wasn't around in 1988 but I was definitely on
Fidonet before that.

It played a significant part in my first born's learning to read since
we had a globe early on and the kid climbs up in my lap while I'm
reading my messages and I tell her "the guy who wrote that is in
California", "the guy who wrote that is in England", "the guy that
wrote that is in Australia" which were all places she knew from her
globe since her favorite game was "tell me what country that is
Daddy!" (she quickly figured out the blue parts were water). Her eyes
got REAL wide as she knew I had been reading and that was something
she didn't yet know how to do though she recognized her own name.

At that point (shortly after her 4th birthday) she got REAL motivated
to read and by 5 was confidently reading and was reading at a grade 3
or 4 level by first day of grade 1. Fast forward 20 years to combined
honors history and Russian...

According to Wackkypedia ...

Usenet is a worldwide distributed discussion system
available on computers. It was developed from the
general-purpose UUCP dial-up network architecture.
Tom Truscott and Jim Ellis conceived the idea in
1979, and it was established in 1980.
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet>

but like all the user-posted "information" on there, it's really
anyone's guess whether that's actually accurate or not.

I can guarrantee Usenet was a going concern back in 1988 because that
was when I got my shell account on the JDYX BBS that allowed me to

Yep. Apparently the genes on her mother's side of the family are pretty
horrendous. Moms, grandmothers, aunts -- all have been taken by various
flavors of cancer.

Wow! Someone in Hollyweird with at least a partial brain!! :-O
If only the people running Doctor Who had had this much intelligence.
Rachel Weisz Speaks Out Against a Female James Bond
---------------------------------------------------
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Rachel Weisz spoke out
against the idea of gender swapping the character of James Bond.
She believes that women deserve to see their own respective
stories be taken place on the big screen rather than relying on
switching the male version of a character with a female. With
the character of Bond, Weisz notes that the original intention
of author Ian Fleming was to create a character "who is
particularly male and relates in a particular way to women." As
Fleming "devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular
character," switching the gender for the sake of switching it
loses a vital aspect of Bond's character as how he perceives
what masculinity is and the way he treats women with this view
is one of the key factors that makes him who he is.
The Disobedience actress went on to suggest that perhaps
storytellers could create new works depicting compelling female
Yep, like the upcoming TOMB RAIDER with the delectable Alicia Vikander.
No need to piss people off by changing Bond to girl.
that's the thing. It's seems that Hollywood has a real problem coming
up with lead roles in action movies for women. For some reason there's
only been a handful that have been made over the past few decades even
though it's been shown that it can work (see Ripley, Alice (of
Resident Evil fame) and Lara Croft) as three characters that were a
success at the box office.) No reason why the writers couldn't come up
with more (assuming there's money to put behind a script/movie with a
woman as the lead for an action flick.)

Hmm. Will she wear huge falsies?
Judging by the pictures I've seen nothing unnatural going on there.
she's not exactly Rhona Mitra

You know that Rhona Mitra's (physical) "assets" are the results of
plastic surgery, right? I came across a website years ago that had
"before" pictures of her, from the waist up, in which she was topless
and she apparently barely qualified as an A cup.

Wow! Someone in Hollyweird with at least a partial brain!! :-O
If only the people running Doctor Who had had this much intelligence.
Rachel Weisz Speaks Out Against a Female James Bond
---------------------------------------------------
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Rachel Weisz spoke out
against the idea of gender swapping the character of James Bond.
She believes that women deserve to see their own respective
stories be taken place on the big screen rather than relying on
switching the male version of a character with a female. With
the character of Bond, Weisz notes that the original intention
of author Ian Fleming was to create a character "who is
particularly male and relates in a particular way to women." As
Fleming "devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular
character," switching the gender for the sake of switching it
loses a vital aspect of Bond's character as how he perceives
what masculinity is and the way he treats women with this view
is one of the key factors that makes him who he is.
The Disobedience actress went on to suggest that perhaps
storytellers could create new works depicting compelling female
Yep, like the upcoming TOMB RAIDER with the delectable Alicia Vikander.
No need to piss people off by changing Bond to girl.
that's the thing. It's seems that Hollywood has a real problem coming
up with lead roles in action movies for women.
No. Its just that anti-woman executive keep pairing-back good concepts due to their own one or two bad experiences with a women.

Doesn't have to be approached as a video game movie. They can think of
it as making a new Indiana Jones movie with a girl playing Indy if it
soothes their social justice urges, because that's essentially what Lara
Croft has always been from the beginning-- a female Indiana Jones.

And not all video game-based movies are horrible. RESIDENT EVIL was a
pretty good action flick. And the first SILENT HILL was a decent horror
movie.

Actually James Bond is one character where being male really is central
to the character. It's not the same as the fundamentally asexual Doctor.
