Daniel Craig has admitted that he kept his marriage to Rachel Weisz a secret because he did not want to ruin it by making it public.
The 43-year-old star, who tied the knot with Weisz in June, at a private New York ceremony, admitted that the couple didn’t feel the need to share it with anyone else.
“We got away with it. 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***ed up, because that would be sharing a secret,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling UK edition of GQ magazine.
“And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind,” he said.
Craig, who met Rachel on the set of Dream House late last year, also revealed that his married life is so far “very happy” and he is hoping to be in the relationship for the “long run”.
“I’m in love, I’m very happy. And that is as far as I’m prepared to go. Life is long, life goes wrong and I don’t want to say something now that might be thrown back later,” he said.
“Ultimately, people are saying, ‘Give it six months.’ Well guess what? I’m not responding. Life is long and I am hopefully in this for the long run,” he added.
