Weisz: I'm loyal to Bond and Bourne

Rachel Weisz insists despite starring in a rival special agent movie to husband Daniel Craig, she is loyal to James Bond and Jason Bourne.

The Oscar-winning actress stars in action film The Bourne Legacy, billed the American rival franchise to 007, but she told Empire magazine there will be no off-screen rivalry between her and Daniel.

Rachel said: "Oh gosh, that's an unfair question! How do I answer that? Where do my loyalties lie? To both. I want them both to do well.

"I don't have to choose do I? People can see them both. I would like them both to sell an equally enormous number of tickets."

Meanwhile, the 42-year-old star of The Mummy - who co-founded a student drama group called Cambridge Talking Tongues, while studying at Cambridge University - claims she was shy about performing when she was younger.

She said: "I wasn't so much a shy child, but I was shy about acting.

"i wasn't the sort of kid whose mother would put her on the table and make her dance for everyone.

"I wasn't the star of school plays, I was the third lead or something. I was generally very shy of performing.

"I wasn't a 'performer'. I'm still not really like that, I don't think. I don't have that 'jazz hands' thing in me."
