Her fa­ther, Ge­orge Weisz, was an en­gi­neer who in­vented a land-mine de­tec­tor, a milk­ing ma­chine and an ar­ti­fi­cial res­pi­ra­tor. 2. She was of­fered a huge part along­side Richard Gere in the movie King David (1985) when she was 14, but she turned it down. 3. Look closely: You can catch a glimpse of her in the au­di­ence of the 1991 Bryan Adams video for “There Will Never Be An­other Tonight.” 4. A tat­too of a lad­der on her hip com­mem­o­rates her mem­ber­ship in an avant-garde Cam­bridge Univer­sity the­ater group. 5. She and Daniel Craig co-starred in 2011’s Dream

House and mar­ried that same year.
