Rachel Weisz "never thought" she would get married.

The 47-year-old actress tied the knot with 'James Bond' star Daniel Craig back in 2011, but she has now admitted settling down with someone and getting married was never an "ambition" of hers.

She said: "I don't think mine's particularly exceptional apart from that we're both in the public eye. But I never thought I would get married. It was not an ambition of mine. It was the opposite. I couldn't relate to romantic comedies - marriage seems to be the whole point of them. Then it just happened, happily, at a more mature moment."

Despite not seeing marriage in her future when she was younger, the 'My Cousin Rachel' star admitted she now wears her ring "with pride", as she loves letting people know she's off the market.

She added: "I mean, I wear a ring all the time. I wear my ring with pride. I'm taken. You don't join [it] like it's the Rotary Club. You make it your own. It's very personal, it's very private."

It isn't just her marriage that Rachel likes to keep private either, as she's also insisted that her 11-year-old son Henry - whom she has from her past relationship with director Darren Aronofsky - will never take part in photoshoots because she wants him to stay out of the public eye.

When asked by ES Magazine if she would allow Henry to model she said: "Over my dead body. He can do a paper round or something, but not photographs. No. He's a child. I generally don't talk about him. He didn't choose to have a mum who's in the public eye, so I keep him away from my career. He's also not very interested in it."
