Well, that didn’t take long. After several weeks of speculation, it seems that Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig are indeed a couple. According to The Daily Mail, the two were spotted holding hands over the holidays while vacationing in southwest England.
Last month, the Oscar-winning English actress called it quits with her American movie director fiancé, Darren Aronofsky, after nine years together. They have a four-year-old son, Henry.
Craig, who plays opposite Weisz in the forthcoming mystery thriller Dream House, apparently ended his three-year engagement to American film producer Satsuki Mitchell in November. He is also a father to 18-year-old Ella, his daughter with ex-wife, Scottish actress Fiona Loudon.
Famed Irish director Jim Sheridan (In the Name of the Father, In America) is at the helm of Dream House. Craig plays a New York City writer who, with his wife (Weisz), look to escape the city’s hustle and bustle. Once settling into their seemingly perfect life in New England, all sorts of drama unfolds when they learn that a mother and her children were previously murdered in their home. It’s tentatively slated to hit U.S. theaters in September 2011.
