Rachel Weisz on Daniel Craig: “I love being married to Daniel, it’s very grounding”

I’m sorry, but I just think Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are the hottest celebrity couple going at this point. Yes, they got together under suspicious circumstances. Yes, Daniel is a curmudgeon who loves to complain. But… my God, I bet their sex life is incredible. I bet it’s crazy. How could it not be crazy? Anyway, Rachel is promoting The Bourne Legacy these days – it comes out this week. And she’s been giving some interesting interviews too – she sat down with Hello Magazine, and she ended up talking about Daniel more than she ever has before. Because the orgasms are just THAT powerful.

What she finds attractive in a man: “There is something incredibly sexy about a man who is good at what he does. Ask any woman and she’ll agree that to see a man be really talented in his line of work is amazingly attractive. I’m not sure it necessarily works the other way, that men are so interested in that quality in a woman… but we women, we love talent in our men.”

On Daniel: “I love being married to Daniel… It’s a wonderful feeling of stability and it’s very grounding. I mean, it hasn’t made more domestic or anything – just being married doesn’t suddenly make you able to cook – but I am very happy right now. Extremely happy, in fact.”

On her relationship to Darren Aronofsky: “I was living in sin. We did talk about getting married, how we’d do it, what kind of ceremony we’d have, but somehow we never found the time to make up our minds and actually tie the knot.”

Working with Daniel Craig 20 years ago on a play: They’d kept in casual contact ever since. Neither is about to divulge what happened on the moonlit nights in Canada while filming Dream House, but they emerged a couple and around a year later, they married in New York.

Running in The Bourne Legacy: “I have to do a lot of running in the film and the hardest thing I had to learn was how not to run like a girl. Apparently, because women’s hips are wider than men’s it means our feet turn out when we run and I really had to work on that. I was difficult.”

On her son, Henry: “He not really interested in what I do. When I was shooting Oz, I said, ‘Come and see me, Mommy’s going to fly, want to come and watch?’ and he just didn’t care. That’s fine – he has his own fantasy life, which is much richer than anything he can see in the movies. And why should movies be so special to him? His dad makes them all the time. And… well, his stepdad is James Bond, isn’t he?”

She finds many actresses attractive: ”Acting is a different world. I find women sexier on screen than men. ‘People like Gena Rowlands, Juliette Binoche and Cate Blanchett. ‘When you work with actors, you don’t find them particularly sexy. Brendan Fraser, in ‘The Mummy’, for example, is very gentle for a big action man. Almost courtly, in fact. ‘He is quite mysterious, with a lot going on in his head.”

Being grounded: ”I think being a mum has completely grounded me. Being a mum is just delicious.

Is the running thing true, or did they just tell her that because they were startled by her duck-like run? Whatever. As for all of her lovely-dovey talk about Daniel… I told you. It’s the sex. They’re still in the “OMG, we have to bone all the time” phase. And it’s hot.

    LOVE them together.

    Kaiser, I’ll bet you’re right…their sex life has just GOT to be starbursts and firecrackers, lol.

    I do hope Dapper Daniel is capable of fidelity, though. If he cheats on the Divine Rachel, I’ll have to look into putting a contract out on him.

    • gg says:

      She is so pretty. Her face and hair remind me a lot of Brooke Shields.

    • Molly says:

      I don’t think this will last. He just up and ran out on Satsuki Mitchell.

      I get the sense that he thought Rachel would change up his life in an exciting way, and when he realizes people can’t change your life, you have to do it for yourself.

      And Obvs Rachel just wanted to be married.

      • Jayna says:

        Sometimes you meet the person you’re meant to be with and the timing is right (well, they did cheat, so not so right) But it’s not like they were strangers. If she wanted to just be married, I’m sure she and Darren would have married. This guy is gorgeous and you think she left Darren just because she wanted to be married? I think it was a lot more than that.

        Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson met under less than ideal circumstances (he was married), but they’re still going strong.

        So what if he was with a woman for years? He never married her.
        Why does that make how he feels about his wife now not real? People change over the years. You can love more than one person in your life. I think he’s old enough to recognize real love, the same with her. Sometimes you just know.

      • Ennie says:

        That “so what, he never married her” seems very very insensitive.
        So what if I am with a person for year? Do I have carte blanche to cheat? They were togetehr for year, more than other married couples get to last. Good that they love their current spouses. And if Aronofsky was unfaithful, as rumours say, then good for her to be off him. But just plain cheating is not fine, and there was a child involved… Who got to meet his new stepfather quite soon.

  2. RHONYC says:

    after 6 years, i’m still in the ‘ “OMG, we have to bone all the time” phase.’

    i’m a horndog, can’t help it. 😛

  3. Naomi says:

    I’ve been watching all the sprinters in the Olympics, they all run the same, male and female, but tbh since they are taught to run a certain technique, she could be right.

    It’s Rachel in the relationship that does it for me, honestly I find Daniel meh.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      I saw on tv recently where a woman said she doesn’t run, she prances. That is exactly what I do. I know I look completely ridiculous when I run, but I run across parking lots etc all the time, because walking takes too long.

  4. Fran says:

    hmmm…hot or not, she’s such a bad actress!! :/

  5. Rux says:

    The running thing is completely true. I have wide hips and I wanted to run in the Crescent City Classic in New Orleans. I began training alone and could not figure out why I was having such a hard time making progress. I finally hired a trainer and he told me the exact same thing. It took me two months of six days a week training to “break the habit”. It did wonders for my running and also helped with the pains I used to get in my knees.

  6. someone says:

    that last picture of them is really cute 🙂 i like her! i find her to be one of the most beautiful actresses just because she has such a unique look.

  7. Turd Fergussen says:

    Super hot. DC is leagues sexier than Clooney or Pitt could ever be. He’s imperfect looking…yet rugged, classic, and handsome. I could sop him up with a biscuit.

  8. Cathi says:

    Can’t stand her. She once said if aronofsky, unlike most Americans, he can find England on a map. Really? Shut it.

    • Tim says:

      That came from the New York post which is known for making up quotes from celebrities.

    • bluhare says:

      Well, I was asked last week if London is the capital of England or if England is the capital of London.

      No, I’m not kidding. Really.

    • Heena says:

      This is true.
      According to a survey by National Geographic 63% of young Americans cannot find Iraq or Saudi Arabia on map, 75% cannot find Iran or Israel.
      88% cannot find Afghanistan.
      40% do not know Rwanda and Sudan are in Africa.
      One third cannot find Louisiana despite national coverage of the hurricane.
      50% of people could not find New York State on a map.
      It’s a sad state of affairs.

    • iseepinkelefants says:

      She reminds me of an older Portman. Smug and pretentious would be the words I’d used to describe both of them.

    • Issa says:

      …and if you believe they can find it, you have more hope for Americans than they deserve. Most Americans can’t point out certain countries on a map. Polls, surveys & studies have proven it. We may know our Paris Hilton’s but we can’t actually locate Paris on a map.

      • yoyobaby says:

        This is by choice. I went to public schools my whole life and ended up in the Ivy League. Why? Because I was focused and worked my butt off because I didn’t want to end up working as a cashier in the Winn Dixie in my one red light town.
        Most people don’t have the drive, stamina and focus.
        I am not the smartest person in the room but I am a grinder. So rather than blame the gov”t cuts in education – spend more time in the public library – they are free and still exist. But again that would require focus and sacrifice.

  9. Dorothy says:

    Gorgeous couple. I live them together .

  10. Christina says:

    What a great couple! They both seem pretty awesome on their own, but as a couple, GOD! I really hope their marriage lasts them a lifetime. I know it’s corny, but I honestly wish them nothing but happiness.

  11. Boo says:

    I just don’t find him attractive. At all.

    But I really like her. I think she is a good actress and ridiculously beautiful. But the line about how she and Darren O were “Living in sin”–did she just blow in from 1956? And beyond that, even if you are “living in sin,” cheating on your partner seems like a bigger sin. No judgments…just sayin’. I’m not sure that both she and Darren weren’t into extracurriculars. Whatever. But stop with the prim and proper.

    • Chatcat says:

      Boo… her quote “I was living in sin” ‘cheating on your partner seems like a bigger sin.’ You may not judge but I am going to judge…BECAUSE she put it out there in this interview!

      Yeah, I get that if you are going to be a celeb you surrender morals, but isn’t there a pecking order in the lack of morals code? Like cheating has a higher immorality score then “living in sin”? Jezzsh.

      Anyway, I don’t find anything I like about either of them…in their looks, their acting, or them as a couple. I haven’t liked 007 since Roger Moore and Dream house was horrible…although I’ve recently watched Silent House and that was 87 mins of my life I can’t get back!

    • Molly says:

      I know. She’s supposed to have been a smart feminist.

    • Raven says:

      She may have been asked the question, using the words “living in sin” and she answered using the term the interviewer used.

    • Boo says:

      As an aside about how little-used this expression is, I teach poetry at the university level, and there’s a poem written by Adrienne Rich called “Living in Sin.” Whenever I teach the poem, I routinely ask my students if they know what “living in sin” means or meant back when the poem was published in 1951 (or thereabouts). None of them ever knows. NOT ONE.

      • Justyna says:

        Maybe she didn’t mean it that way. In some countries, including mine, “living in sin” is a common idiom, used by everyone – religious, not religious, feminists, Stepford wives wannabes etc. It’s just a phrase we use when we talk about unmarried couples without actually thinking they are doing anything wrong. I know she’s British but maybe someone from her family used it around her and it stuck (as far as I know her parents are from Austria and Hungary, and she once said she had Polish grandfather). Just a guess.

    • Kim says:

      ITA he is not attractive and a jerk in every interview that Ive seen

      • Sandra says:

        If you think so, you don’t have a sense of humor. Daniel is possessed of intellectual depth, so I can see why Rachel wanted to marry him. Hope they last longer.

      • Sandra says:

        You can find him attractive in interview if you have a sense of humor. I think Daniel is possessed of intellectual depth, so I can see why Rachel wanted to marry him. Hope they last longer.

  12. Aria says:

    “living in sin”???

    Uff…I didn’t think she was so traditional.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      Sometimes people use the phrase simply to refer to living together without marriage.

    • Jayna says:

      I highly doubt it came off in person how it reads in print. Sometimes things just don’t translate into the print the way they were said, kind of tongue-in-cheek.

      • Amanda_M87 says:

        Agreed. I don’t think she meant it in any derogatory way when she said “living in sin”. Some things just don;t translate well in writing.

  13. The Original Denise says:

    They are totally right together. Wish them well!

  14. Vivian says:

    It’s her British sense of humor I thought re: ‘living I sin’ comment and that she realized she wanted a marriage and not just co-parenting etc. I am huge fan of hers, seen most of her movies and I enjoy watching her interviews on TV. The actual meaning being : if that relationship was tight and strong, they would have married but somehow it didn’t happen for a various reasons etc. No regrets, she’s very happy with D now and their body language is strong; great photo of them – last one. Oh what she said of Brandon was sweet!

    • j.eyre says:

      You have a point. I was put off by her comment b/c they have a child together; but it must be hard to quantify what went wrong to satiate the public without given too much of yourself away.
      I did like her comments about finding a man who is good at what he does attractive (yes) and about Henry’s step-dad being James Bond – how cool would that be?
      They are a very sexy couple.

  15. lucy2 says:

    They are pretty hot together.

    I didn’t take the “living in sin” thing as something she meant seriously/religiously, but who knows. It’s very hard to gauge tone from article excerpts.

  16. Elizabeth Rose says:

    UNF I just love them together so much and I always love reading/watching her interviews. I really hope they’ll last a lifetime.

  17. T.C. says:

    You can tell they boned while working on Dream House. Neither of them will talk about what happened when filming or when they first got together. There is your sin darling. Otherwise she seems likable.

  18. Lisa says:

    Just look at Daniel’s face in that first pic: it says it all. “Look at what I’ve just done. Look at what I’m going to do as soon as this is over.”

  19. Edith says:

    I would file this under the category: tell me something I don’t know. In other words, who WOULDN’T love being married to Daniel Craig. All the best to both of them.

  20. bns says:

    I really don’t like Daniel Craig. He seems like an asshole.

    • Feebee says:

      Yes but people and in particular celebrities aren’t always as they seem. I’ve only seen DC interact with his fans once in person and he was utterly charming and stayed longer than legendary nice guy Mr Jackman.

      Love Rachel Weisz, despite some average movies, her acting is always great. Looking forward to Bourne Legacy.

    • Camille (The original) says:

      bns: I agree with you.

  21. Nessa says:

    I think sometimes you just KNOW. Like she loved DA and he loved SM but not in the all-consuming way that happens when you just know. *sigh* or maybe I’m a hopeless romantic and they do just look so damn good together.

  22. taylor says:

    I love her! And I think he’s amazingly attractive (though not traditionally handsome). And I just LOVE that they’re together–I don’t even want to speculate about their sex-life. It’s probably fantastic, though.

    • trina says:

      That “living in sin” remark might have been a slam at DA, maybe she wanted to get married but he never got around or was interested in asking her. She was probably swept off her feet by DC when he proposed so quickly

  23. nooooooo... says:

    I don’t know which of them I want more.
