Rachel Weisz has admitted it is hard to balance being a mother with travelling the world making movies.

The actress - who is married to James Bond star Daniel Craig - is mother to six-year-old son Henry, from her relationship with director Darren Aronofsky.

Rachel said: "Of course it is difficult, but it is difficult for any working mother. All mums face the challenge. I am lucky that I work extensively and then I am off. Some mums work all day and they get home late and have to be a mum."

The actress - who stars with Jeremy Renner in espionage thriller The Bourne Legacy - revealed she had been practising her interrogation skills at home with her son.

She said: "For my son's birthday, he just got this little plastic lie detector test. He makes me put my fingers on it, and he asks me questions. I turn it around on him and ask questions like, 'Did you eat your vegetables at school today?' It has been fun."

::The Bourne Legacy is released on DVD on Monday December 3, 2012.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
