Rachel Weisz has opened up about her marriage to Daniel Craig in a new interview with ES Magazine. The About a Boy star, who wed the James Bond actor in 2011, revealed that they like to keep their relationship private, explaining: "You make it your own. It's very personal, it's very private. I don't think mine's particularly exceptional apart from that we're both in the public eye." She continued: "But I never thought I would get married. It was not an ambition of mine. It was the opposite. I couldn't relate to romantic comedies - marriage seems to be the whole point of them. Then it just happened, happily, at a more mature moment."

The 47-year-old also spoke about working as a model when she was just 14, saying: "I wanted to be very independent, I was trying to earn my own money and, at the time, it seemed quite glamorous, like it would give me access to power or something. But you have to be very disciplined — successful models work very, very hard. I was not a good model." Rachel previously opened up about keeping her relationship private with Daniel to MORE magazine, saying: "He's just too famous. It would be a betrayal. You have to protect your marriage. 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."

However, she once told the Mirror that the pair love to cook together, explaining: "I love to cook. Daniel is also very good at it. We always enjoy trying out different kinds of cuisine and having fun with that." The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony with only Daniel's daughter and Rachel's son in attendance, and have opted to live in New York City rather than L.A. The full interview appears in this week’s issue of ES Magazine, Thursday 25 January.
