Star: Daniel Craig is super-jealous & possessive of Rachel Weisz

I can’t shake the feeling that Daniel Craig is a moody curmudgeon. That’s how he always seems in interviews, and I don’t think it’s just my American-ism not being able to interpret when an Englishman is being tongue-in-cheek. I actually think Daniel is sullen and grumpy – that IS his personality. It doesn’t make me less hot for him, although nowadays I want to hatef—k him more than I want to talk to him.

Why was I bringing this up? Oh, right – remember Daniel’s grumpy/funny/obscene Rolling Stone interview? Go here to review some excerpts. When RS asked Daniel about whether or not he’s a jealous, grumpy bastard in regards to his wife, Daniel said: “I’ve always been very good at avoiding fights, having worked in pubs and seen pools of blood everywhere. Actually, the only thing to ever get me in trouble would be someone looking at my girl the wrong way. That always got me going. I still get jealous now, but I don’t get jealous the way I used to. I was in a bar in France once and this guy pinched my girl’s ass, and I flew across the room, kind of lifted the guy up. These days I’m much more happy to have a quiet word with somebody.” So, Daniel admits that he’s a jealous guy, and the one thing that can get him going is when someone hits on his wife?

Daniel Craig, 44, gets shaken and stirred when it comes to other men hitting on his gorgeous wife, actress Rachel Weisz, 42. The normally cool-as-a-cucumber actor is so jealous that it’s even causing a rift in his marriage.

According to our own spy, “Daniel is the nicest guy, but when it comes to his wife, he has huge control issues. He doesn’t want Rachel to go out without him. And if he sees someone flirting with her, he will aggressively tell the guy to back off.”

The insider says Rachel has never given her husband of a year and a half any reason to be jealous and has told Daniel he needs to chill out.

“She says he needs to be flattered when other men hit on her, because he’s the one she’ll be with forever,” notes the source.

I can believe that Daniel gets jealous and possessive, because he just admitted as much in that Rolling Stone interview. The rest of it just sounds like low-rent 50 Shades fan-fiction. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. These days, Daniel and Rachel are my pick for “Hottest Celebrity Couple”. I’m not going to lie, I would love to see their sex tape. And if it has a 50 Shades flavor, then so be it. If I was Rachel (and God, I wish I was), I would flirt with other guys just to piss Daniel off so he would get all mad and possessive. Then again… it would only be fun for a short time. After a few months, it just gets kind of creepy and abusive.

    Wowzer…this biscuit tingling…lucky Rachel!

  2. Ranunculus says:

    Sorry, but Daniel Craig is boring.

  3. carrie says:

    it’s STAR ! when Brangelina don’t break or Aniston is not pregnant,James Bond is jealous!

  4. pretty says:

    wow, what a yoda looking man.
    this guy and that benedic cumberbath guy should be friends.

  5. GoodCapon says:

    Rachel is so hot.

    Daniel looks too old for his age sometimes. He still has a nice bod though.

    • Christina says:

      Agree on both counts.

      Rachel is gorgeous. Daniel…. well, sometimes he looks very hot, other times he looks like some anonymous middle-aged guy working in a garage. Although there’s only 2 years between them, he looks so much older and tireder than Rachel.

      • Amelia says:

        As much as I love her to bits, I think Rachel’s had some subtle tweaking done, and combined with an awesome make-up job/skin routine, she looks much younger.
        Also, is it me, or do women tend to respond better to tweaking than men? I’ve yet to see a good Botox job on a bloke.

      • Christina says:

        I’m not sure. If Rachel has had work done, it’s been done very well and very subtly. I’m glad that she resisted what must have been considerable pressure to ‘fix’ her nose too. But whether or not she’s had work done, I think her beauty and youthful appearance are really down to good genes. I bet she’ll also look great 20 years from now. Daniel…. maybe not so much.

      • Joanna says:

        yeah, she’s had work done. I’m 36 and had started to get crow’s feet around my eyes. I went for a botox consult and the doctor was surprised to hear my age. Now that I have gotten botox shots around my eyes, I don’t have any wrinkles/creasing. There is no way she’s 42 and not had anything done. I wear sunscreen religiously, so much so that my friends make fun of me and I had crow’s feet at 36. She’s 42. She’s goten at least Botox.

        btw, I was nervous about doing Botox but I love the results. and it only cost me $160, much cheaper than I expected.

    • Stacey says:

      He, 44, looks his age or would if he wasn’t so thin. She, on the other hand, looks like his daughter. 42? Wow!

    • Addison says:

      As much as I dislike Daniel, I must say I don’t blame him. I think Rachael is soooo pretty. I wish I looked like her (similar to her).

      Although some of you are stating she may have had some work done. NOO! She will ruin herself.

  6. Lulu says:

    They have such sizzling chemistry it just jumps off the computer screen! Hot hot hot.

  7. Lushy says:

    Rachel is one gorgeous lady, so men will definitely be giving her a stare and a wink. Can Daniel take it? Probably not.

  8. Post-It's says:

    Did anyone see Daniel Craig on Colbert? It was a funny interview and Daniel played along well with Stephen.

  9. Miss Kiki says:

    It’s actually obscene how hot these 2 are.

  10. Christina says:

    I’m skeptical about these ‘reports’. Both Rachel and – especially – Daniel are famously private, and I can’t see them confiding in an ‘insider’ who turns around and blabs to the tabloids. And if they did, they wouldn’t remain an ‘insider’ very long.

    • Lena says:

      Totally agree. I’m sure it’s a made-up story based on RS. Daniel always took his ex GF Satsuki with him both at all times and all places — maybe he doesn’t like to be alone. But he’s acting alone in many cases, after getting married. I don’t think he wants power over Rachel at all. I always feel he respects her, her job, her feelings, her opinion.. Maybe he has a policy that allows a person to live freely. This story is a fake, very interesting though.

    • Anna says:

      Totally agree. Also, with Rachel Weisz making campaign for her excellent performance in “The Deep Blue Sea” -Which won the NYFCC for Best Actress and was nominated at the GG-, Daniel is busy helping his wife for her campaign. According to reports, after the premiere of Skyfall, Craig make reunions with AMPAS members and was involved in the Q&A at the SAGs of “The Deep Blue Sea”.

      It’s interesting when you read this, because you think Daniel Craig is actually very supportive and really loves his wife.

      • Joshua says:

        Yes, Daniel made great exertions in her behalf. I heard from Anthony Breznican (on this year’s Oscar contenders) Rachel’ work in The Deep Blue Sea hasn’t been on the radar of many Academy voters, so that film about a torrid love affair received a much-needed boost. His services must be more valuable than was supposed.

  11. Chrissy says:

    I have to agree with Kaiser. Hottest celebrity couple out! Move over Brad & Angelina, etc. THIS IS IT.

    He’s definitely a curmudgeon. He’s looking like a balding gargoyle too (not that gargoyles have much hair to begin with). But Rachel balances it all out. She’s just one beautiful woman.

  12. Valerie says:

    Rachel is so gorgeous. Love her.

  13. Talie says:

    It’s so funny too because Rachel seems very easy-going and chill.

  14. Cidee says:

    Sorry- although I usually find jealousy and possessiveness childish, in this case it is totally hot. They are one smokin’ pair.

  15. Ally says:

    He often admits to his grumpiness.

    I agree, they are definitely the hottest couple around, the way he looks at her….sigh.

    • bluhare says:

      I agree. He adores her. Look at that last photo. Lucky bitch.

      • Christina says:

        Yes. They are the perfect example of a couple whose body language shows they are obviously madly in love/lust with one another, without them slobbering over each other on the red carpet. They’re confident enough in their love for each other that they have no need to do that. Compare it with Tom Cruise’s cringeworthy shenanigans with Penelope Cruz, or, at the other extreme, George Clooney’s embarrassed, half-hearted pretence with whoever is the red-carpet escort of the month.

  16. mln76 says:

    Totally buy there is jealousy there they started through infidelity and unlike his ex Rachel doesn’t need him to be relevant. I think it might make the sex hot but if he stays a moody jealous bastard she will leave eventually.

  17. Nya says:

    He doesn’t seem like he’s a very pleasant person. She must not be either.

  18. fan says:

    I guess you never watched the right interviews. He’s a really funny guy and very down to earth. There’s one thing he could cope not well with: stupid intervier asking stupid questions:then ge gets grumpy, otherwise not so much….watch The Graham Norton Show or Kimmel with Daniel and then tell me that guy is moody (NOT)!

    • pepper says:

      THIS!
      Most of them take him for his unsmiling pap pic (how dare he not play nice to the paps!!) and come to the conclusion that he is moody!! NOT. His interviews tell you otherwise. I also believe he is very proud and respectful of Rachel. So he can be a bit possessive. That feeling goes with being in love.

      Cannot believe that RS interview where he let his guard down and felt free enough to give an open interview gets twisted into all kinds of nonsense.
      STAR is BS.

    • Lisa says:

      Yeah, in the interviews of his I’ve seen (on Charlie Rose and The Daily Show), he seemed cool, willing to play along, bright, funny, etc. Obviously, he’s also an actor, and you never know what people are like when you’re not around, but still. Also, if some jackass pinched my butt, I wouldn’t exactly be all that upset if my bf confronted him.

    • tinks says:

      I agree he’s actually very funny. My family is from the same part of England as he is, and we are used to a very dry humour at times. I live in North America, and find that people often don’t “get” it.
      You should check out the Comic Relief sketch he did with Catherine Tate. It’s hilarious!

  19. Guest says:

    Daniel Craig seems to be in love with his wife . Quelle Horrour!! How dare him.

  20. mommak918 says:

    Hot hot hot.
    Id wanna be Rachel.
    He could get jealous then we could make up allll night!

  21. Maritza says:

    He looks like a wax figure in the picture with the tuxedo. Jealous men can make a woman’s life miserable. Rachel is a gorgeous woman.

  22. Mew says:

    That kind of a possessive man is hell. No one should put up with that.

    Not saying Daniel Craig is like that, but if he is, it isn’t any more acceptable than from any Joe on the street.

    It’s funny that people here too scream about feminism, how it’s so great and how women should fight for their rights and the next thing they say that basically a guy is allowed to keep them prisoner at home (as “she’s not allowed to go anywhere alone”) if he’s only hot looking. That’s just such BS.

  23. Maria says:

    there is a difference between flirting and pinching your butt. if a guy really does that it is totally ok to get all physical. nothing to do with jealousy, if a man wants to sexually harrass a woman he will have to deal with the consequences.
    And if his girlfriend let the other guy pinch her butt Daniel had every right to be jealous.

  24. andy says:

    I fantasize about having wild, passionate sex with Daniel. In my dreams, he looks at me and says “The name is Bond….James Bond” and then he rips my clothes off.

    **slowly licks lips**

  25. Joshua says:

    “He doesn’t want Rachel to go out without him.”??
    “he sees someone flirting with her, he will aggressively tell the guy to back off.”??
    What a delusion! I often spotted she walks ALONE around NY. And I chatted with her at the after party, but Daniel didn’t seem to be interested in me with her.

  26. Ginger says:

    Wow! That last photo…look at how they are looking at each other! HOT!

  27. Ms Kay says:

    Well, if he wasn’t jealous I’d be worried. His wife is as hot as his Bond on screen sex scenes! So it’s perfectly normal!

  28. Gabby says:

    Daniel craig can rock a suit like no one else. Damn I wish I was Rachel…. *sigh*

    • OutstandingWoldCitizen says:

      I love them together. I love him as Bond but is it me? His suits were SUPER tight in Skyfall. All those running scenes had me hoping the cloth was blended with lycra. The shoulders were too tight.

      That being said, I love him. I love them together. IF he is prone to jealousy (I understand) then she is a lucky woman. But if he CRAZY clingy aka she can not go out alone that is overbearing and slightly scary. But I am taking this story with grain of salt like I ALWAYS do. :)

  29. KellyinSeattle says:

    Off topic, but he reminds me a bit of the Sexiest Man Ever Alive; Patrick McGoohan from The Prisoner.

  30. Jayna says:

    It sounds like from the interview he has always been jealous over the woman in his life being hit on, not just Rachael. He said he’s gotten better but that he handled it much worse when he was younger. That’s how I interpreted his remarks.

  31. Michael Kelly says:

    Considering that they both were just cheating on long time partners, I can see why he is not trusting. Do you think she told her previous boyfriend that he is the one she will be with?

  32. Amanda says:

    I think Star magazine misinterpreted what Daniel said in this Rolling Stone interview and they went along with it.

  33. Tommy says:

    She’s pretty but I don’t think she’s the goddess you lot think she is. And Daniel Craig looks like the kid on the cover of the Mad magazines. I’ll skip their sex tape.

  34. Chelsea's handler says:

    I was watching Clive Owen in I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead a few nights ago and it dawned on me that he would’ve been a much better Bond than Daniel Craig.

  35. Whatever says:

    Didn’t their own relationship start by them cheating on the partners they were with?

    I guess what goes around, comes around. Meh.
