Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, who were thrown together as husband and wife in Dream House, fell in love with each other on the sets of the movie despite both of them being in long-term relationships before they started work.
Despite the pin-up status of the leading stars, off-screen romance seemed like the last thing on the cards when they arrived in Brampton, Ontario, but by the time the film wrapped two months later, they were already making plans for a life together.
The couple’s wedding last summer in a typically private New York ceremony, with just four gusts including Craig’s 22-year-old daughter Ella and Weisz’s five-year-old son Henry, shot them straight into the top bracket of Hollywood’s power couples alongside Brangelina and TomKat.
When asked how she was finding married life with the ‘James Bond’ star, Weisz declined to comment.
“I’m sorry – I’m a newlywed. I’m still a blushing bride and it’s really private. I can’t tell you anything – come back to me later,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
The 41-year-old actress had been married for nine years to American director Darren Aronofsky, while the 43-year-old actor, who had been married and divorced in his mid-twenties, was engaged to his girlfriend of the previous seven years, Satsuki Mitchell, an American film producer.
With Aronofsky and Weisz announcing their separation and Craig splitting with Mitchell, the romance between the ‘Dream House’ co-stars went public.
