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

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
