James Bond and his Bond girl.
Daniel Craig officially got his Bond girl when he married Rachel Weisz. Though to be fair, Craig wasn't even cast as James Bond in the 007 film series when he first met Weisz back in 1994. They both were up-and-coming actors at the time, co-starring in the play Les Grandes Horizontales at the National Theatre Studio in London.
It wouldn't be until nearly two decades later that Daniel and Rachel would reconnect and fall in love on the set of Dream House in 2010, and a year later, secretly tie the knot. "I'm in love. I'm very happy," Craig said of his marriage to Weisz during an interview with British GQ, refusing to elaborate any further.
Over the years, the couple continued to keep their relationship private — including details about their daughter, whom they welcomed in 2018 — but every once in a while, they'll surprise us with a rare red carpet appearance or a gushing remark about one another in the press.
