It’s been a year since British star Rachel Weisz said ‘I do’ to Bond star Daniel Craig. In 6 months the couple went from secretly dating to newlyweds in a private ceremony in New York. Weisz, who is more known for her interesting film choices rather than her relationships, opened up to UK’s Marie Claire about marriage with Craig.
Weisz, 42, said of her marriage life to the actor isn’t what people might assume. For instance, the British stars don’t lie around talking about the industry they’re both prominent in. In her own words, the Bourne Legacy actress says, “We don’t sit around talking about acting but you both understand you’ve got to be flexible,” Rachel continued to Marie Claire magazine, “We don’t sit around talking about acting but you both understand you’ve got to be flexible.”
As far as jealousy goes Rachel seems to have that on lock down, and tells the magazine that she certainly doesn’t think about Daniel Craig and all of his Bond girls. “It’s just make-believe.” When asked if the actors try to one up each other in their professional life, Weisz says they have a simple way of avoiding that. “Luckily we’re not going up for the same roles. Actually I wouldn’t mind some men’s roles.”
In recent years some interest has been on Rachel’s love life. Weisz seems okay about discussing the interest on her relationship saying, “As far as downsides go, I don’t think it’s a big one. It’s something we deal with together.” However, when it comes to being asked about how her relationship started with Craig the actress became uncomfortable and said, “I’m going to change the subject.”
In 2001 she met longtime partner and Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, and the two were engaged by 2005, but never married. The two split in 2010 after months of being separated and share a child together, 6 year-old Henry Chance. Weisz began immediately dating Daniel Craig and 6 months later they were married.
