RACHEL Weisz is head over heels in love with new beau Daniel Craig — insiders say.
The actress — who left partnerDarren Aronofsky to be with the James Bond hunk — is said to be smitten with Craig.
“Rachel is like a schoolgirl when she’s with Daniel,” said one insider. “She thinks she’s found the man of her dreams.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if they end up getting married.”
Rachel and Daniel were recently snapped hand-in-hand during a cozy Christmas break together.
The pair — who star together in upcoming movie Dream House and have previously denied they’re a couple — were laughing and holding hands while away together in Somerset.
“Daniel and Rachel looked like a romantic couple in a film,” a source told Britain’s News of The World. “They were laughing and hanging on to each other’s words and stopping to take photos of each other.
“They were clinging to each other like honeymooners. The chemistry was obvious.”
A romantic drama directed by Terrence Malick is reshaping its cast with Ben Affleck replacing Christian Bale, to join the previously announced actors Javier Bardem (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes). Rachel Weisz (The Lovely Bones) is also joining.
The title of the film is unknown and Affleck’s affiliation was confirmed, according to entertainment news website The Wrap, when spotted with wife Jennifer Garner on holiday in Oklahoma purchasing fishing gear to research a new role – conceivably the role in this film. Production is slated to begin in October in Oklahoma.
Malick’s highly-anticipated The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn and set in the 1950s, will be released in November. Directing regularly again, there was a 20-year gap between his acclaimed Days of Heaven in 1978 with Richard Gere and 1998′s The Thin Red Line starring Sean Penn.
Following up Affleck’s 2007 directorial debut Gone Baby Gone, his new film, The Town, stars Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm and himself. It will be world premiered at the Toronto film fest in September.
McAdams co-stars in Morning Glory with Harrison Ford this November and Weisz is currently shooting Jim Sheridan’s Dream House with Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts. Bardem can be seen next in Eat Pray Love and Biutiful.
Rachel Weisz isn’t “noble” in any way, so would never die for her job.
The actress plays Hypatia in her movie Agora, which was recently released in America. The film is a historical drama set in Egypt, and Rachel’s character was interested in learning about astronomy and mathematics.
The actress was attracted to the part because it is so different to what she’s done before. “It seemed very unusual and daring and out of my comfort zone, so I thought, why not?” she explained. “She’s willing to die for what she believes in, which I’m not – at all. I’m not noble in any way. The way I figured out I could identify with her is that I’m very, very, very passionate about my work, and so is she. But I also managed to have a relationship and be a mum. I don’t think she had those options open to her.”
Rachel prides herself on being down to earth, and not allowing her job to dictate how she lives her life. She is engaged to filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, and they have four-year-old son Henry together.
The star makes sure she spends as much time as possible with her family – they travelled with her when she shot Agora in Malta. Rachel rejects other star’s claims that it’s impossible to have a private life when you’re famous, saying she manages just fine.
“It’s all a load of rubbish,” she told the USA Today newspaper. “There’s a few people on the planet for whom it is an issue, but people are not going to attack you. They’re respectful.”

Agora star Rachel Weisz said she isn’t very good at ‘homemaking’ and winds her fiance up with her untidiness.
The 40-year-old actress is engaged to director Darren Aronofsky, with whom she has a four-year-old son, Henry, and admitted she has never been very good at keeping her house tidy.
According to UK newspaper Daily Express, she said: ‘I’m incredibly messy, which drives Darren mad. There’s always stuff lying around my room everywhere. I try to organise the flat and buy furniture and keep it clean but I’m not very good at it.’
She added: ‘I don’t have a good homemaking instinct. I’m working hard on it – especially now I’m a mum. It’s getting a little better but it’s just not me, to be honest.’
