The 42-year-old actress looked charming on the Williams & Hirakawa shot front page while talking about her upcoming action film , as well as seeking out the perfect role and life in NYC.

Highlights from Miss Weisz's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to C Magazine!

On life in the Big Apple:
“Everyone moans about the city changing and becoming gentrified, but I think the East Village still has a little edge and also has a community.”

On her upcoming film 'The Bourne Legacy':
“[Jason Bourne is] in the periphery of the story, but it’s about a new military program and I am thrown together with Jeremy Renner‘s character by circumstance, because, well, we need each other.”

On how she goes about searching for new roles:
“I want to always feel like it’s a stretch and that I’m not quite sure I can pull it off. And I think that is truly the right reaction … I used to get really affected by my work, but when you have a kid, you have to come home and be there mentally. When the director says ‘cut,’ it’s all make-believe, and strangely enough, that took me a little bit of time to work out.”
