London - Rachel Weisz believes that “respecting the rules” in her relationship with Daniel Craig is not the same as in marriage.


The 42-year-old actress - who tied the knot to the James Bond star in June 2011 in New York - admits her marriage to the actor feels different to the long-term relationship she had with her former partner Darren Aronofsky in that there is "contact" with the 44-year-old hunk.

Rachel - who has six-year-old son Henry with the 'Black Swan' director - said: "It's different being married than living with your partner. There is a contract.

"You don't necessarily have to think about respecting the rules, but it is just there. It's in your heart, it's not like a piece of paper."

While Rachel says she doesn't play by the rules with Daniel, the couple - who first met in 1994 before falling for each other on the set of thriller movie 'Dream House' in 2009 - have agreed to never speak about their acting roles with each other.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, she explained: "I don't talk about my work, and nor does he. It's very private.

"There is nothing worse than two actors getting together and talking about acting. It's like the end - it's the worst."

Rachel's latest film role sees her playing the Wicked Witch of the East in forthcoming fantasy adventure movie 'Oz: The Great And Powerful' - a 'Wizard Of Oz' prequel - and the brunette beauty simply enjoyed playing an evil role.

She added to The Sun newspaper: "It's like a playpen - you get to act out stuff that you are not allowed to do in real life.

"But I don't think I got rid of my demons or anything. This film is just not serious, it's fun. My demons are all still there." - Bang Showbiz
