Hollywood Foodies: Sigourney Weaver


Whether she’s playing human-turned-beast Dana Barrett in Ghostbusters, primatologist Dian Fossey in Gorillas in the Mist, badass commander Ellen Ripley in the Alien franchise or Dr. Grace Augustine in Avatar, actress Sigourney Weaver leaves an indelible image on screen.

The lithe actress, still gorgeous at 60, has finished shooting the Touchstone Pictures comedy You Again, with Kristen Bell and Betty White. The film will open in September. Weaver is also rumored to reprise her role in Ghostbusters III, set for a 2012 release.

On a recent trip to Morocco, where she was honored at the Marrakech International Film Festival, Weaver fell in love with the country’s North African cuisine, which is infused with spices like cinnamon, cumin, ginger, fennel and turmeric.

For a taste of the region’s classic dishes, you can follow Weaver’s lead and serve up an organic Cinnamon Beef Tagine, accompanied by Orange and Radish Salad with Cinnamon Vinaigrette.
