Rachel wore her hair in waves and was quite the English Rose with her natural, low-key make-up.
The star, who recently wed Bond star Daniel Craig, was pictured leaving the Today Show in the Big Apple where she made an an appearance to promote her new film, The Whistleblower.
Speaking about the movie, she said: 'It’s a thriller. It’s one of my favorite kinds of genres, much in the vein of Erin Brockovich, because it’s based on a true story about a woman, an ordinary woman, who did an extraordinary thing and I love stories like that.'
