Details You Didn't Know About Daniel Craig And Rachel Weisz's Marriage

It's not strictly top secret, but James Bond actor Daniel Craig is married to Oscar winner Rachel Weisz. The British actors have been married for almost 10 years, and they were friends before they tied the knot in 2011. Craig and Weisz first met through London's National Theater Studio in 1994, when they both starred in Les Grandes Horizontales (via Newsweek). The two remained friendly after their project at the National Theater Studio ended.

According to Newsweek, when the actors met, Craig was married to Scottish actress Fiona Loudon, with whom he shares a daughter. Loudon and Craig divorced in 1994. Weisz was in a romance with American filmmaker and producer Darren Aronofsky, and the two had a son in 2006.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are very private

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are a very private couple. After starring in a film together in 2010, they fell in love and got married a year later. According to Newsweek, the couple had a very intimate wedding; their children and two friends the only guests. In a British GQ interview from 2012, Craig confessed he and Weisz wanted to keep their marriage a secret: "We did it privately and we've got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point; we did it for private reasons because we didn't want it f**ked up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind."

The two A-list British actors live a simple life in the U.K. and are pretty much only seen when they are walking the red carpet to promote a film. The couple added a new member to the family in 2018, when they welcomed a daughter to the world
