Bond's Secret Wedding

Daniel Craig has spoken for the first time about his 'secret' wedding to long-time friend Rachel Weisz.

The couple married in a private ceremony in New York after just a few months of dating, although it has since come out that they've actually known each other for years after meeting at university. 

Labelled as a 'whirlwind wedding,' the publicity shy couple have managed to keep rather tight-lipped about their secret nuptials - until now:

"We got away with it. We did it privately," said the Bond actor. "And I've got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point. We did it for private reasons. Because we didn't want it f*cked up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind."

Craig was equally reluctant to talk about married life - citing the Kardashians as an example of the reality show tell-all culture that he considers his approach the antithesis of.

"Look, I'm in love," he told GQ flatly. "I'm very happy. And that is as far as I'm prepared to go. Life is long, life goes wrong, and I don't want to say something now that might be thrown back later… Ultimately, people are saying, 'Give it six months'. Well, guess what? I'm not responding. Life is long and I am hopefully in this for the long run… If you sell it off, it's gone. It's precious. It's worth more than money. You can't buy your privacy back… Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions. Millions! You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f*cking idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?'"

The January issue of GQ, featuring the interview with Daniel Craig, is out on Thursday.
