Actress Rachel Weisz and 007 star Daniel Craig were seen together as a couple on Christmas Eve, despite defiance as recently as a month ago, walking hand in hand in the picturesque county of Dorset in South West England.
The British newspapers show photos of the couple, bundled up as they wandered to a deli and a pub near their $1,500-a-week holiday cottage.
In November, when her representative confirmed that Weisz and her ex-husband, director Darren Aronofsky ("Black Swan"), had been separated for months, it was revealed in the media that the Academy Award-winning actress had been linked to Craig for that long.
Weisz, 40, and Craig, 42, had grown close while playing husband and wife in the forthcoming thriller "Dream House," filmed early this year, according to the recent media reports.
Craig has a daughter, Ella, about 19, with his actress ex-wife, Fiona Loudon, whom he divorced in 1994 after a two-year marriage. The notoriously private actor reportedly broke up with his long-time girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell earlier this year.
Rachel Weisz had a 4-year-old son, Henry, who spent the holidays with his New York City-based father.
