The actress reveals that she and superstar husband Daniel Craig have a deal not to discuss their roles with each other, because even if you are 007 it is just way too dull.

She says of their relationship: “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, 42, and Daniel, 44, first met in 1994 when they co-starred in a steamy play in London, but fell in love when they co-starred in US thriller Dream House in 2010.

They married in June 2011 in New York, where they now live with six-year-old Henry, Rachel’ s son by her former fiancé, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky.

And the Oscar-winning star says being married feels very different from the sort of long-term relationship she had with her ex.

She says: “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 last year was a huge one for her husband, with Skyfall becoming the UK’s biggest-ever box office hit, this year looks to be promising for Rachel.

She stars in Wizard Of Oz prequel Oz: The Great And Powerful, tipped to be a blockbuster when it opens here on March 8.

And, for a change, this time Rachel — known for her roles in The Mummy and The Bourne Legacy — is playing a baddie in the fantasy adventure.

In fact, her character is no less than the Wicked Witch of the East.

Daniel Craig wants Adele to sing the theme to the next Bond film after her global smash with Skyfall, The Sunday People has revealed.

The 24-year-old would be the first repeat Bond singer since Shirley Bassey sang Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker.

Star Daniel, 44, also pushed bosses at MGM to sign up Skyfall director Sam Mendes for the next film.

An MGM source said: “Daniel wants to keep the winning team. He loved Adele and wants her back.”

The signs are all pointing to it – surely Skyfall is going to become the first James Bond film to be nominated for the best picture award at the Oscars? Yesterday it was reported that the Daniel Craig-starring, Sam Mendes-directed 007 flick has been nominated among ten films for a Producers Guild of America award. That usually means that a film’s in with a good shout of being nominated at the Academy Awards, given that the winner of the PGA has gone on to win the ultimate prize in 16 of the last 23 years.

Now further hope has been given to the Bond team with the news, reported by The Hollywood Reporter, that the Academy is to have a special tribute section to the Bond franchise as it celebrates 50 years. “We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday,” said producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “Starting with Dr. No back in 1962, the 007 movies have become the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon.”

Despite its enduring commercial success – Skyfall recently topped the $1 billion mark globally at the box office – the Bond franchise has never been taken seriously by the Academy. The 23 films have managed to muster just two wins and seven nominations between them, all coming in relatively minor categories; there’s been no nomination in any category since 1982. You have to believe that this year is going to be different.

Skyfall is due to be released on the 13th of February, preorder on DVD and BLU-ray.

Skyfall, Sam Mendes’ critically acclaimed James Bond movie, has taken more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The latest film is now the most successful film in British box-office history, though it remains at No.2 on a list of movie gaffes spotted by eagle eyed cinemagoers. They had to go and spoil it.

According to the online list at moviemistakes.com, Skyfall contains 35 gaffes, second only to Men In Black III with 63. Among the most glaring errors include during the opening ‘train scene’ when Bond’s footwear changes from black lace up shoes to black slip on ankle boots. During the thrilling Istanbul chase scene, Eve knocks out of the windshield of her car, though for the rest of the chase, half the glass is back in the frame. In the chase through the tube station, both Bond and his enemy Silva (Javier Bardem) slide down between the escalators, though the London Underground has hard vertical signs to stop people falling. In one of the movie’s concluding scenes, Bond reaches the chapel and plunges into the icy water, though he appears to be perfectly dry just seconds later.

The 23rd official Bond film became the first movie ever to take £100 million at the British box office this past weekend, ($1 billion worldwide). Daniel Craig’s third Bond movie is STILL on general release more than two months after its release, such is the continuing demand.
