Rachel Weisz: Going Unnoticed Is Easy

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Features,

Rachel Weisz in New York CityRachel Weisz and Daniel Craig never get recognized in public.

The couple - who married in June 2011 - find it easy to lead a normal life in New York City without being bothered by the public, even if the James Bond actor has to don a hat to keep his identity concealed.

Rachel - who has a six-year-old son Henry with ex-partner Darren Aronofsky - said, "I've never had to worry too much about [being recognized]. With Daniel, it's just a matter of putting on a hat. You try to walk quickly and go about your business. Living in New York makes it much easier. I've never been one to go to loud clubs or trendy restaurants. And as a mum, you want to put your child to bed then take a nice hot bath because you're generally exhausted from your day."

Rachel, 42, also claimed her role in The Bourne Legacy proves she is tougher than her spouse as she had to do her own stunts in the action film.

Asked about comparisons between her husband - who reprises his role as 007 for a third time in upcoming movie Skyfall - and new Bourne star Jeremy Renner, she told The Sun, "The similarities are that Daniel and Jeremy are extremely good actors - proper actors. Are they two tough guys? I suppose they pretend to be. In Bourne films, the policy is you do your own stunts and that kind of realize heightens your appreciation of the story. I found all the physical work quite scary and exciting at the same time - it toughens you up. There was a great deal of running and a lot of stunt work I didn't expect to do. You feel like you can handle yourself in difficult situations after doing a film like this."
