Rachel Weisz - Rachel Weisz: Actresses Are Sexier Than Actors

Rachel Weisz thinks actresses are sexier than actors.

The 'Bourne Legacy' star - who is married to James Bond hunk Daniel Craig - has much more of an appreciation for female screen beauties than her male co-stars.

She said: ''Acting is a different world. I find women sexier on screen than men.

''People like Gena Rowlands, Juliette Binoche and Cate Blanchett.

''When you work with actors, you don't find them particularly sexy. Brendan Fraser, in 'The Mummy', for Example, is very gentle for a big action man. Almost courtly, in fact.

''He is quite mysterious, with a lot going on in his head.''

The 42-year-old actress - who starred opposite Brendan in the action/adventure film - believes it takes more than just good looks for her to find someone attractive.

She explained in an interview with The Sun newspaper: ''I always find intelligence and sense of humour more attractive than good looks.''

Rachel has a six-year-old son, Henry, with her former partner Darren Aronofsky and she insists motherhood keeps her grounded amongst the distractions of Hollywood.

She explained: ''I think being a mum has completely grounded me. Being a mum is just delicious.

''I have also learned to get through a lot more in half the time, which came in useful for 'The Bourne Legacy' because you have to be so fit.''
