Rachel Weisz didn’t walk the ‘Spectre’ carpet but still got a James Bond kiss


When I first looked through the photos of last night’s big, royal premiere of Spectre, I did have a moment where I thought, “Damn, where’s Rachel Weisz?” She’s not in the movie, of course, but she is married to James Bond in real life. And there were some rumors that all was not well or is not well in Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz’s marriage. But! Rachel was there. She just didn’t walk the red carpet. She did stand behind Daniel in the royal receiving line, then they held hands as they left the afterparty.

Rachel’s gown was Alexander McQueen, by the way. It’s really pretty and I don’t really understand why she didn’t want to show it off on the red carpet. I’m not saying they had to be all lovey-dovey on the red carpet together, but Rachel could have walked the carpet separately! It’s also always struck me that Daniel gets nervous on red carpets and he likes to have his lady with him, holding his hand and relaxing him.

So, do you think they’re in trouble? Or was it all just idle gossip and they’re totally fine? This kiss photo is hot, right? I think even if they were having trouble, their sex is so hot that they’re able to forgive each other pretty quickly.

    Gah! They are both so attractive and look so great together. Her dress is beautiful. She is beautiful. He is beautiful. Uh oh, I think I’m in love with them.

  2. Sara says:

    She looks blissed out. Bet they banged on the way to the premiere. Am I right, ladies?

    • Lori says:

      Yup! Maybe they didn’t want her on the carpet to upstage the actual Bond girls.

      • Bishg says:

        I agree. Rachel on the red carpet would have taken some of the attention off the movie première.
        Don’t get me wrong, Léa and Naomi are beautiful and Monica is just equally gorgeous, but Rachel’s presence would have caused big excitement.

        It was a wise and classy decision on her part!

    • Olenna says:

      HaHa! Yes, you’re right!

    • Manjit says:

      That’s exactly what I thought! They look like they started something they couldn’t finish.

    • Liberty says:

      you are right! well done, them.

    • Lauren II says:

      I have never seen Rachel so glowing and happy.
      Aronofsky is very smug, humiliated Rachel for years, and refused to marry her, even when she had his son.
      I am happy that Daniel loves Rachel so much. In the Daily Mail a few years back I read that these two have known each other since their twenties. There is a lot of history, not just mind- blowing banging holding this sexy couple together.

    > So, do you think they’re in trouble? Or was it all just idle gossip and they’re totally fine?

    Well, if that is what trouble looks like, I need more of it in my life.

    I like both Rachel and Daniel, I liked them both long before they got married, so I am hoping all is well.

    • Naya says:

      How am I the only one who remembers that Daniel has alluded to trouble in multiple very recent interviews. He’s basically said that filming turned him and his “family” life was affected. The man has no kids and doesn’t live with his folks, so family can only mean Rachel. The rough patch is probably over though.

      I like them just fine but I’m often confused by the gushing over some couples that hooked up through cheating and the slamming of other couples for the same on this site. Just saying.

      • notasugarhere says:

        He has a 20-something daughter, Ella, from his previous marriage. Weisz has a 9-year-old son from her relationship with Darren Aronofsky.

      • EN says:

        I don’t know how they got together. I just remember that one day it was announced that they got married, out of the blue. I thought OK, good for them, and moved on.

        Who cheated on who ?

      • Naya says:

        Yeah, forgot about the 25 year old daughter. Still pretty sure he was using “family” as a substitute word for “marriage”.

        On the cheating: HE was living with and engaged to a not-famous woman who he had been with for 7 years. SHE was at the time in a 10 year old marriage with Darren Aronfsky . Then Daniel and Rachel went off to make a film in Canada and you can figure out the rest. Also, Daniel is a repeat offender, remember the affair with Sienna Miller who was at the time with his friend, Jude Law?

      • TreadStyle says:

        Yes Naya! Didn’t they get together making a movie & both were in long term relationships? I thought it was all pretty shady and obviously well planned out bc there were only a few sites that acknowledged the overlap. But no one really called either out on it. I guess people like her too much to remember or pay attention. I’ll admit I still like her and thinks she beautiful but I think he’s a 100% jerk.

      • Charlotte15 says:

        Agree, I can never like either one of them because of the sleazy way they came together. They will both probably cheat again someday.

      • teacakes says:

        hey, if we’re slamming them for the way they got together, we may as well slam the Brange too. I mean, he was married after all.

        I don’t see why people need to take other people’s affairs so personally. By that standard, people should be forever vilifying Audrey Hepburn for cheating on her first husband too, and yet she was always one of the most praised Hollywood stars and widely acknowledged as a person who tried to help others with her fame.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Charlotte15, are you aware of the William-Carly-Middleton triangle? Kept dating his girlfriend while sleeping with Middleton behind her back.

      • jammypants says:

        Rachel was never married to Aronofsky.

        @teacakes, agreed.

  4. OSTONE says:

    She is stunning. A beauty for sure! And that dress fits her like a glove!

    • Esteph says:

      couldn’t agree more! she looks so ethereal

    • tracking says:

      Wow–although the other ladies also looked wonderful, she wins the prize. Drop dead gorgeous.

    • sills says:

      She is my forever and ever girl crush. Sometimes I just don’t “get” her red carpet looks, but this is so killer, just perfection. Wish she’d have been out in front of the cameras.

  5. bluhare says:

    I didn’t know there were rumors about their marriage, but I did wonder about the side eye from Sedoux (sorry about the spelling) and Rachel hanging onto Craig for all she’s worth. DM has another one where she’s not looking and smiling at the camera like that.

    • LAK says:

      did you notice that Daniel had his hands behind him holding hands with Rachel the entire time he was in the receiving line?

      it was so sweet.

      • zinjojo says:

        I loved that. He had his hands behind him, holding her hand the entire time. Very sweet, and if they were having trouble, I think the rough patch is over. They looked very connected last night.

      • bluhare says:

        I did! It was sweet, but it struck me as insecure. Not sure which one, but one of them!

    • ican'tsnap says:

      That’s not side-eye, she’s looking at Craig as he’s speaking to her.

      • bluhare says:

        Not sure that’s so. The other photo I saw (DM had it), he looked like he was talking to someone further away than she was, and she was looking at Rachel like that.

      • ican'tsnap says:

        Okay but he’s speaking and she’s listening. In a photo that’s clearly the next moment she’s laughing at whatever he’s just said.

  6. Lilacflowers says:

    Best dress of the night. Simply gorgeous.

    And that hug she is giving him looks like no trouble at all.

  7. Alex says:

    Damn, she gets more beautiful with age. Her face is even more gorgeous now than when she was younger.

  8. Lk says:

    I have the hot for Rachel but not for Daniel McPoutyLips although I am straighter than the Pixar hopping lamp.

  9. OrigialTessa says:

    She’s stupid pretty. Just absolutely breathtakingly beautiful.

  10. Crumpet says:

    Damn they are hot. I’m betting their marriage is passionate. Passionate marriages have passionate fights and passionate making up. I’m thinking they are fine.

  11. SheilaKitten says:

    Wow! She is stunning here! I love them both so I hope they continue for forever. She looks very happy.

  12. Mia4s says:

    She was really cute when she talked about him on the Graham Norton Show. Who knows but I think they’re good.

  13. anna says:

    This. Woman. Seriously. What’s her secret?

  14. vauvert says:

    She is too beautiful for words. He is not but he has that “he is hot but trouble” look. I really hope they are good, I love them together. And it is nice to see for once a beautiful actress in a fabulous dress. This is what I expect form HW stars – glamour, and a well fitted dress that is everything. So pretty.

  15. Guest1 says:

    Remember that picture you posted of Taylor Swift yesterday, the one where she’s trying to hide her disappointment that Adele won? Well, what I remember from that full clip is when they passed Daniel & Adele fist bumping & laughing when her name was announced & you could see Rachel…. if looks could kill. After that I always see her as a jealous woman. Jealous of what, who knows? She’s beautiful. She just seems insecure when it comes to other women and her man.

    • EN says:

      Didn’t her first husband cheat on her repeatedly? I am not sure, but I thought I heard that.

      • Betti says:

        Rumour has it that Aronosky cheated, allegedly with Natalie Portman, and that’s what caused their breakup. Portman broke up the previous relationship her husband was in and it was ‘hinted’ at the time of her pregnancy announcement that Aronofsky was the father and not Benjamin – her son even looks like a young Darren.

      • ican'tsnap says:

        @Betti, yeah but those rumors are ridiculous. Maybe Portman had a fling with Aronofsky (MAYBE), but her son looks just like his dad, Benjamin.

  16. notasugarhere says:

    They don’t walk the red carpet together much. The Skyfall premiere was the same. She waited inside while he did his posing on the carpet with his co-stars. She was pictured mopping the sweat from his brow inside and was in the receiving line with him. He was wearing an awful, too-tight suit and she wore a beautiful blush chiffon iirc.

  17. Hoopjumper says:

    Something about her dress seems super 90s to me, in a good way.

  18. Claire says:

    He doesn’t do it for me but she’s EVERYTHING. So beautiful and elegant.

  19. Des says:

    From what I remember of how they hooked up and got married, this is a couple that bangs. And whenever journalists are giving background on him for their interviews, they always mention his wife and how devoted they are to each other so… yeah, they probably have normal trouble but nothing big imo.

    • Jayna says:

      I think they’re madly in love, but we’ll see in ten years. Most of these couples are all in love for a few years. It’s getting closer to the decade mark that will be telling.

    • ican'tsnap says:

      “normal trouble but nothing big”


  20. Manjit says:

    I’ve just got back from seeing Spectre (which I LOVED) and my Daniel Craig crush has just skyrocketted. Much as I love Idris Elba. DC has got to do at least one more Bond; at the very least one more Daniel, PLEASE!!!!!

  21. Viv says:

    The look his co star is giving him, in another picture elsewhere they are standing arm in arm and the body language is like she’s into him….. His wife is gorgeous.

  22. moon says:

    LOVE her dress!!

  23. Genie says:

    Rachel getting more and more beautiful. She is also intelligent, and Oscar winner. I think he knows what he’s got. I’d love to see her star opposite someone with Richard Burton’s magnetism and acting ability, yum.

  24. MourningTheDeathOfMusic says:

    In the photo of Rachel standing behind Craig, her smile appears genuine and her body language appears relaxed and happy. I don’t think she would hug him like this if there were trouble in their relationship.

  25. Ravensdaughter says:

    Rachel’s smile in the last photo says it all. Yes, even if they were ticked with each other, the makeup sex must be great!

  26. AnkitaH says:

    One f***ing hot couple this. And it’s adorable to see how they held hands throughout 🙂
