Rachel Weisz Gets Candid on Aging and Marriage to Daniel Craig
Oscar winner Rachel Weisz puts it all on the line in the December/January issue of More magazine, which also features her on the cover!
In her candid interview, Weisz opened up about aging and about her marriage to Daniel Craig, who has made a big name for himself as James Bond over the years.
Rachel reflected on her past and present and how she has evolved as a person. "Well, everybody's aging, and we're all going to die. Getting older, there's a reality about mortality, but it's hard to be young, too. It's hard to not know who you are. My twenties were painful at times. Now, I have wisdom and experience — I know what interests me in a way I didn't before. I'm much more focused on what matters to me. I waste less time. There's a huge relief in that."
The 45-year-old isn't wasting her time dwelling on the reality of aging. "[It's] kind of like thinking, 'What's the point of life?' If you start thinking like that, you've opened the box to anxiety, and anxiety is the enemy of grace. Because there is no remedy, not really. Anyone can obsess over their physicality at any age and be unhappy. The trick is not to think about it. Invest all that energy in something else, and you won't care so much."
Switching topics, Rachel also discussed how the importance of keeping her four-year marriage to superstar actor Daniel Craig as private as possible. She said she doesn't talk about him very much. "He's just too famous. It would be a betrayal. You have to protect your marriage. When you're young, you tell your girlfriends everything. One of the great pleasures of not being an adolescent is that you don't have to share everything. When you're married, that door closes. The audience goes, and you're in your own life."
