Rachel Weisz took time to fall for Craig

Rachel Weisz says it wasn't love at first sight when she met Daniel Craig.

The two stars surprised many when they married in June 2011 as they had only been together for a matter of months. They are famously private but Rachel has insisted their relationship wasn't as rushed as people think.

"It wasn't really like that. We'd been friends for ages," she told Marie Claire magazine, when asked if she fell in love with Daniel instantly.

Rachel and Daniel both have children from previous relationships and seem happy to leave their family as it is.

"I'm pretty content. I'm not planning on having more [children], but never say never," she explained.

The 42-year-old star also spoke about her career and how she deals with seeing her husband with pretty actresses on screen. She is relaxed about him shooting love scenes as she knows how uncomfortable they can be.

"It's just make-believe. It's a strange job in that way for sure," she said.

"We don't sit around talking about acting but you both understand you've got to be flexible. Every few months you start a new job."

The actress jokingly added the main thing she is thankful for is that her career progression has been so different to Daniel's.

"Luckily we're not going up for the same roles. Actually I wouldn't mind some men's roles," she laughed.
