Daniel Craig spends the holidays with Rachel Weisz

Looks like Daniel Craig is doing some serious bonding with Rachel Weisz. The duo were spotted holding hands while strolling through the English countryside this weekend.

The actors, who play husband and wife in the upcoming thriller "Dream House," reportedly shared a cottage in snowy Dorset and were later seen walking hand-in-hand together and entering a pub.

"They were laughing and chatting and hanging on to each other's words and stopping to take photos of each other," an onlooker told Britain's News of the World, which published photos of the pair.

Weisz, 40, announced her split from partner of nine years Darren Aronofsky in November. At the time, she and 42-year-old Craig – who reportedly parted ways with girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell – denied that they were an item.

According to the Daily Mail, however, Weisz admitted that she and Craig had great chemistry while filming "Dream House."

"We’ve been getting on really well and yet I still haven’t had an offer to be a Bond girl - but if he asks me I’d definitely do it!" she reportedly said.

    DANIEL CRAIG is gay. Seriously. You people do not read enough.

    He is not a straight man, so this is all a ruse.

    I do not have a problem with him being gay. I just hate to sit here and read people getting sucked into another ruse.

    He is gay.

    Daniel Craig has been an awesome Bond so far. Anytime you have James Bond windsurfing down the face of a glacier and driving an invisible car (i.e. Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day) there's a problem. Craig has made Bond more human, darker and grittier. I'm eagerly waiting the next movie.

    Daniel is a teenage troll, or at least I hope he is, because if he's an adult I'm afraid he's already too far down the road to loserdom to ever make it back. And Daniel, if your so "successful" at so many things, why are you posting (over and over) on a CNN comment board? My guess is that you're a lonely, resentful little pr!ck who doesn't have anyone to spend the evening with. Good luck with that.

      @Amy – thank-you for your input. Your retort was so well thought out that I can only assume that your eloquence is unrivaled here and that you probably are educated well beyond your years...is that a MBA you have. No? Well you could have fooled me and every one else here. Good job ! Keep up the great work !

    Daniel Craig has a daughter from a previous marriage so he has 'baggage' as you call it too.

    if you are a man with 0 aspirations, then you are probably attracted to inner beauty. Instead of being that guy, Im disgusted with inner ugliness and delighted with outer beauty. covers both bases and its true.

    Daniel, your arrogance is truly nauseating. Sure, being truthfull is a wonderfull trait, but coming from you (Oh so delicately) on such a subject is horrifying. I shudder to think of the poor woman who's fate should fall into your hands, for she will never be able to grow old gracefully. You will be after her forever to keep her your little kewpie doll, until like so many others well into their older years, look freakish in their attemp at the fountain of youth. Work on yourself. not others.

    Walter, that was my thought exactly. It's so sad. That's the problem in hollywood. These actors meet on the set, fall in love, marry, then go on to make a new movie, fall in love with the NEW co-star, divorce, marry, repeat...

      Jo, you are obviously quite slow minded aren't you. If you had bothered to read my comment it was asking about a single (unattached) male becoming involved with a woman who previously had a child. Having a wife, children and growing old isn't really what was being addressed now was it? Next time, read the comment and address it properly.

    He was recently spotted in a gay bar, dancing with, and kissing another man. (do a Google search) So, yeah, I'm thinking she's either his beard OR this a publicity stunt to squelch the gay rumors.

      For my money it's Craig, Lazenby, Connery, Brosnan, Moore, Dalton. With a big space between Connery and the rest. I'll give you Niven, and I love the original Casino Royale (and particularly Woody Allen as Bond's son), but it's just so nutty it can hardly be called a true Bond movie.

    Not that Rachel Weisz isn't beautiful, I just have a hard time understanding why a single man would want a woman with children and the baggage that it entails....not only the physical, stretch marks, sagging etc, but the baggage of the ex-husband and all that entials. He is freakin James Bond and could have any tart he wants.

      @Kate Denizen – if any man has ever told you that he finds you impressive not because of your looks but for other qualities...you are probably very ugly and he is trying to think of something nice to say to you.

      @Katie – I am very successful (in all things not just women) which is why I am not forced to lower my standards. I also maintain there is no such thing as a MILF and I am a fan of breast augmentation, and other elective surgeries that are available to women to make them more attractive.

      Furthermore, It has been my experience that grown women who continue to call themselves 'Katie' or similar young girl names, are often trying desperately to hold on to their youth and are no longer appropriate for their station in life. Time to grow up Katie.

      @Whatapig – nice comment, you show a real maturity yourself. Believe it or not, there are millions of men out there who do not find your front of the leg cellulite, sagging skin and cottage cheese rear-end attractive. You sound so bitter I can only assume that your husband left you for a more attractive model. Next time put some effort into yourself and maybe people will stop dumping you.

      @Whatapig – Why would you call someone a pig for having an position and living his life within that position? I agree with Daniel, you sound extremely bitter. You are an ostridge, burying your head in the sand if you think his comments are not valid for a great many of the male population. Simply put, some men do not care about post pregnancy effects on a woman but they are probably in a committed relationship, but that is not what he is refering to, now is it?

      Maybe he wants a real woman? Or maybe he knows something that you obviously don't, which is that older, more mature women are wiser and often much better in bed, even if they do have a few more wrinkles or stretch marks or their boobs don't stick straight out and barely move when they jump. And she looks ten times better than a lot of 25 year old women I know. Gorgeous. By the way, I know plenty of 40 year olds who've have kids and have no stretch marks or sagging. Just sayin'.

      Let me guess, you are a perfect man who only dates perfect women. You don't have a hairy back, pimples, or bulge in your belly. You don't have b.o. and you don't fart. You only date women who have 1% body fat and whose boobs stay perky well into their 70's.

    • Daniel

      @Anevay – I am not perfect – almost but not quite. I don't have a hairy back, pimples or gut and the bulge I have is lower down. I date very attractive women, but perfer women with curves so 1% body fat is not applicable. Although I have high standards, I will not enter into a relationship with a mother – not matter how good looking.

      So, I assume you are asking me these questions because you're interested, so do you fit the qualifications?

      You must be trolling for attention, because no one could be as stupid as you, Daniel. If you're serious, I feel really sorry for you. Because I guarantee you will be miserable when you're older. Once your metabolism catches up with you and your hair starts falling out, your sad little "standards" are going to have a hard time with the loneliness.

      I'am a woman and I agree with you, Daniel. There are many surgeries out there for men to have done that I would strongly recommend; hair transplant, tummy tucks. no grey on what hair they do have and OMG wax everything other than the head!!! There are even male enhancement surgeries out there, I am in support of the men who do this like the women who have breast implants. Of course, it is the mens choice (like the breast implants) but I will not touch them unless they have a good job, look decent, and if they cannot preform then get surgery or use pharmacutical enhancements. I would not waste my time with all the (baggage) Rachel or Bond has either. Both way too nasty, old, and past their prime – Daniel heres to many conquests and a future of beauty for both of us in 2011

    @Superhiro: You are mistaken he is the seccond best James Bond, the heigherarchy of Bond's is as follows from greatest to worst: Sean Connery, Daniel Craig, Goerge Lazenby, Peirce Brosnan, Roger Moore, Timothy dalton.

      you're 100% right...he is the worst James Bond ever, IF, you're a complete and utter knucklehead. Finally we have a real man (the first since Sean C) who doesn't use gadgets, hasn't been marginalized by the villians or the bond women. Finally we have a plausible scenario, a man in the real world, fighting the bad guys with his brains, strength and assistance from others...the way it should be.

      Daniel craig is hands down my favorite Bond, and I am a longtime fan of the franchise. I also dig Roger Moore for the cheesed up 80's aspect, but Daniel Craig brings true dramatic brawn to the character and captures Bond's allure as well. I want more!

      He's a different kind of Bond, and probably a lot closer to the character imagined by Ian Fleming. Connery's dashing good looks and always stylish attire simply isn't "real world." Fleming's Bond was a cold-blooded assassin. That's not a pretty or glamorous person, but it's precisely what Craig is portraying when he plays Bond.
