Rachel and James Bond actor Daniel started dating in December 2010 and went on to tie the knot in New York City in June 2011. Earlier this year, the About A Boy star opened up about her marriage to Daniel, revealing that they make a conscious effort to keep their relationship out of the spotlight. "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 told ES Magazine. "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."

In a 2015 interview, she further explained their need for privacy. "He's just too famous. It would be a betrayal. You have to protect your marriage," Rachel told MORE magazine. "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."
