Most of these celebrities accompanied us throughout the nineties, whether with their memorable acting roles, brilliant scripts, or catchy music, and this year they celebrated a big milestone: their 50th birthday. Half a century. Going over the hill. Okay, so they still have a lot of beautiful years ahead of them, but your 50th birthday is a big deal. From Uma Thurman to Matt Damon, some of these A-listers have been on the silver screen since their teenage years. Join us to see who are the celebrities who were born in 1970 (was it really that long ago?)
English-American actress Rachel Weisz started modeling at the age of 14, and in the early nineties she arrived at the US to pursue an acting career. She received mostly minor roles in film and feature roles in television, but her breakthrough role came in 1996 with the film Chain Reaction, where she co-starred Keanu Reeves and Morgan Freeman.
By the end of the nineties and early 2000s, Weisz had already made a name in the entertainment industry. She starred in blockbusters including The Mummy (1999) and its sequel, and in 2006 she received an Academy Award for her performance in the drama The Constant Gardener; that was also the year she gave birth to her first child. Weisz is happily married to fellow actor Daniel Craig since 2011.
