Classic Femme Fatale Disses Madonna

21 August 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ex-James Bond girl Honor Blackman says that Madonna is not feminine enough to be considered a femme fatale. The 75-year-old has just finished performing in Dishonourable Ladies, in Cardiff, Wales, which celebrates famous femme fatales, including Greta Garbo, Mae West and Cleopatra. The list does not include the Material Girl. Honor explains, "A femme fatale has to have an air of mystery and there's no mystery to anybody these days. Everybody knows everything about all famous people, down to what type of underwear they wear. I don't find Madonna particularly attractive and don't think of her as a femme fatale. I think of a femme fatale as a more feminine woman." »

Rachel Weisz Tipped To Play Mae West In Stage Comedy

3 May 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The Mummy Returns actress Rachel Weisz is being tipped to star as Mae West in a new stage comedy. The British beauty is in line to star in Dirty Blonde, the tale of screen legend West - known as much for her wit as for her looks. The comedy is due to transfer to London's West End from New York's Broadway later this year or early next year. And Weisz can't wait for the chance - because, as she proves in the sequel to her hit flick The Mummy, she likes variety in her work. She says, "It's important to me not to be seen as just a pretty young thing. I was this feisty librarian in the original, but for the sequel I have to get very physical and get myself into fighting shape for Egyptian hand-to-hand combat. I spent five months learning Japanese martial arts. It was a real challenge but I am proud of the result." »
