Here is your 2018 update on Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz: they’re fine, yay!

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz with her son Henry arrive at JFK airport

This is sort of a nothingburger story, but it makes me happy that Rachel Weisz & Daniel Craig are still together and doing fine. These are photos of Rachel, Daniel and her son Henry returning at JFK airport this week, after spending some or all of the holidays in Paris. Rachel and Daniel are one of my favorite couples, but they manage to be pretty low-key, rarely getting pap’d and only showing up on red carpets together once in a blue moon. Yay, the entire world isn’t garbage: Daniel and Rachel are fine!

Meanwhile, as we’ve discussed previously, Daniel is definitely coming back for one more James Bond movie. There were months of discussion that Spectre would be his last, but no. Apparently, they brought around the money truck and Daniel acquiesced to doing another one. But after this next one, who will take over the role?

James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is open to having a black or woman 007 as Daniel Craig nears the end of his tenure in the role. McMafia star James Norton has emerged as the frontrunner to replace Craig when he eventually gives up the role, but Barbara has revealed she wouldn’t hesitate breaking from the tradition that has seen Bond played by white middle-aged men.

She told the Daily Mail: “These films tend to reflect the times, so we always try to push the envelope a little bit. Anything is possible. Right now it’s Daniel Craig, and I’m very happy with Daniel Craig, but who knows what the future will bring?”

Yeah, even though I got worn out on this conversation over the past few years, I still wouldn’t mind if James Bond became a woman or a person of color (or both). Like, Archie Panjabi would be a good James Bond. Chiwetel Ejiofor would be a good James Bond. So would about a million white dudes. Meh.

    I’ve always liked these two, they’re a handsome age-appropriate low-key couple.

    I don’t get his appeal, she’s way more attractive then he is.

    Thanks for posting this! Wish we saw more of them out and about as a couple. I always hoped they would have a kid together but I guess it was not to be.

    Gosh I love them and especially her! She is my Jewish inspiration! I wish I could look like her at her age but it doesn’t seem probable given that even now I look much worse despite all efforts. What an amazingly beautiful and inspiring woman and he is such a cool guy. I love their story and how it all happened. It gives me hope that sometimes most wonderful things happen even at a later age and despite all else and against all odds. I hope they never break up.

    Apparently, Idris Elba was “Too street” for Barbara Broccoli to consider as Bond, so now why is she considering other alternatives after Craig. I remember the list going around if Craig didn’t give in for the big payday to do this last one and a lot of people campaigned for Idris! Even English actor Collin Salmon should have been considered, yet now would be deemed too old unfortunately.

      Idris Elba is probably the only way one would get me to go to the cinema to watch a james bond movie. I’m not even an Elba fan, I don’t care about him at all but I really think he would be freaking perfect for the role.

      • Rtms says:

        Except he just had a hyped up movie he was lead on fail miserably hence why I would think hes on the back burner. They are desperate for the money.

    I once sat next to her at a hair salon in SoHo and OMG she is breathtaking in person.

    • Jess says:

      I can’t even imagine! She’s so beautiful on screen, it would probably be like looking at the sun! haha

    If fine means cheating.

    I realised how awesome Rachel is after watching the Graham Norton interview along side Dawn French.

    I would happily wake up looking like her!
