If you go to Rachel Weisz for information on “Star Wars,” you’re looking in Alderaan places.
Weisz told Stephen Colbert on Thursday’s “Late Show” that her husband, fellow actor Daniel Craig, and their 4-year-old have been “bonding” over a shared love of “Star Wars” movies. But Weisz is lukewarm on them.
When Colbert asked if she had actually ever seen “Star Wars,” the British American actor smiled guiltily and replied, “Umm.”
Her daughter, on the other hand, is “obsessed” with the series, she said. And Craig is such a fan that he requested a cameo in 2015′s “The Force Awakens,” appearing briefly as a stormtrooper.
Weisz clarified that she had “probably” seen a “Star Wars” movie as a kid, but that she’s “not that deep” into the franchise.
That may have been a bit of an understatement.
“What is the thing they’re trying to destroy, in the movie?” Colbert asked, before instructing the audience, “Don’t tell her.”
“Umm, Darth Vader?” Weisz replied, stifling a laugh.
Colbert seemed floored by her lack of familiarity with the films, cracking at one point, “This is the part of the movie where we find out you’re the alien.”
Weisz responded to the idea she might be an extraterrestrial with a comparison to a different science fiction series.
“Oh, it’s like ‘Mork & Mindy’!” she replied.
