With Daniel Craig's latest movie Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery premiering on Netflix over the holiday season and earning a multitude of nods, fans have a renewed curiosity about the English actor.
While the 54-year-old has proven over the span of his career that he can do almost anything in the spotlight, off the red carpet, he tends to keep his personal life more private, especially when it comes to his wife, fellow actress Rachel Weisz, 52, and their blended family.
That said, there's no doubt that she'll be showing her support for Daniel at the 80th annual Golden Globes Awards. ICYMI: His portrayal of the quippy Southern-drawled private detective Benoit Blanc scored him a nomination for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.
So, how did the bright blue-eyed star meet his wife of over 10 years? It all started in London back in 1994.
According to People, the two actors actually first crossed paths 15 years before they started dating. They were both cast in Les Grandes Horizontales at the National Theatre Studio in 1994. During this period, Daniel was divorcing actress Fiona Loudon with whom he shares a daughter, Ella, 30.
Rachel, who was single then, went on to meet her first husband, director Darren Aronofsky, who she wed in 2005, and gave birth to their son Henry, 16, a year later. They later divorced in 2010 and a few months later, Rachel and Daniel worked together again.
After the duo was cast in the psychological thriller Dream House, they started dating privately. The couple wed less than a year later in June 2011 in a secret ceremony after having been together for six months. The only people at the wedding were the actors and their children, per People.
Although Daniel and Rachel have made more public appearances since their nuptials, they still keep their marriage under wraps. In a 2012 interview with British GQ, Daniel gave a brief and rare insight into the relationship. "I'm in love. I'm very happy," he told the magazine. "Life is long and I am hopefully in this for the long run."
Rachel has echoed similar heartfelt words but she has also opened up about why he's not always the topic of conversation.
"He's just too famous. It would be a betrayal. You have to protect your marriage," she told MORE magazine in November 2015. "When you're young, you tell your girlfriends everything. One of the great pleasures of not being an adolescent is that you don't have to share everything. When you're married, that door closes. The audience goes, and you're in your own life."
Fast forward, in September 2018, the James Bond star and The Favourite actress welcomed a daughter named Grace, 3. Although neither of the two have social media and don't share glimpses of their family online, Rachel revealed that they were excited about the milestone.
“Daniel and I are so happy. We’re going to have a little human," she told The New York Times in April 2018 before giving birth. "We can’t wait to meet him or her. It’s all such a mystery.”
Most recently, Rachel made a rare appearance with Daniel for the London debut of Glass Onion. Despite the brief presence, we're sure she's proud of his latest work as she mentioned in a 2018 Good Morning America interview.
"We talk about films that we love or plays. We love to go to see theater and discuss things that we've seen," she told the outlet. "We respect each other. We appreciate each other's work."
