Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are a serious Hollywood power couple, but Rachel has opened up about how they don’t plan to star in anything together any time soon!

The Black Widow actress tied the knot with the James Bond star back in 2011, but before becoming a couple, they starred together in the movie Dream House, and co-starred in a play, Les Grandes Horizontales at the National Theatre Studio back in 1994.

Their last project together was the Broadway play Betrayal in 2013, but Rachel told Today why it will likely be their last - for a while anyway! She explained: "I think we aren’t going to [work together again], at the moment. I think we really love our private life as a life, as a family. And then we go to work separately.

"We really enjoyed that experience, but also it means we can alternate. So I can stay home with the family while he works. We can swap out. If we’re both doing something at the same time, it’s probably less ideal."

The pair share a five-year-old, whose identity they have kept private, while Rachel has a son from her previous marriage, 17-year-old Henry, and Daniel has a 31-year-old daughter, Ella.

Rachel previously opened up about what it is like being married to 007 himself, telling The Guardian: "Of course there’s a tremendous privilege that comes with it [with fame]. You know, we get really good seats in the theatre. It doesn’t really exist to me. I’m used to it now.

"Like, if someone recognises my husband, it’s just part of life – they’re normally really nice and go, ‘Best Bond ever!’ or whatever. It’s not in a place where it’s difficult, or oppressive."
