It was the kind of clandestine operation only James Bond could pull off. Rachel Weisz and her “James Bond” beau Daniel Craig secretly married last week in New York.
Reps for the couple confirmed the nuptials to the Daily Mail and People.com. Little is known about the Big Apple ceremony, but according to reports, the wedding took place on Wednesday and was attended by just four people. In addition to the actors’ children — Rachel’s 5-year-old son, Henry (his dad is “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky), and Daniel’s 18-year-old daughter, Ella — the wedding guests included two friends of the couple who acted as witnesses.
“Daniel and Rachel insisted on having a small, quiet wedding,” a source reportedly told the News of the World. “They are madly in love and couldn’t wait to be husband and wife — but they wanted minimum fuss. They had a couple of friends as witnesses and their children from previous relationships and that was it.”
Weisz and Craig have always been quite private about their relationship. Romance rumors were sparked last year when they were filming “Dream House,” in which they star as a married couple. In the supernatural thriller, their lives take a turn for the worse when they move with their two daughters to a quiet New England town and find out their new home was the site of a murder that claimed the life of a young mother and her two children. Naomi Watts also stars in the film as a neighbor with close ties to the deceased family.
Last year, Weisz split from Aronofsky, whom she was with for nine years. Meanwhile, Craig parted ways with his producer girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell earlier in 2010.
