Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz in NYC

Posted on January 29, 2013

This is why it’s no fun doing NYC “On the Street” posts in the dead of winter:


Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz in NYC.

Really now. It’s like they don’t even want to give us something to work with.

We suppose the only thing left to say is, “Wow, Daniel Craig drinks a fuck-ton of water during his workout.” We honestly thought that he was hauling some family-sized floor cleaner around.

    I feel you, Rachel. This week I looked like a giant furry snowball trying not to fall around the rough streets of Manhattan. Someone bring on spring, it comes with cuter clothes.

    • Robyn Garrett

      Aw, this makes me miss the northeast.

      • Sobaika

        I miss the sun.

        • eowyn_of_rohan

          I’ve lived in Manhattan for all of my 31 years and every year I am still shocked by how much I hate winter here.

          • MilaXX

            Amen. I live in Philly and I am sick of being cold.

          • It’s been kind of warm here in Philly today, just dreary, I’ve had my windows open.  I am also sick of the cold.

          • MilaXX

            Windows open? You are a braver soul than I. It’s been warmer, but my windows won’t get opened until spring.

          • 3boysful

            72 here in NC today! (But we’ll be back to winter this weekend!)

          • LeBarron

            I’m in North Carolina, as well.  It was so nice out today.  No coat required!

            Summer can keep its humidity though.

          • UsedtobeEP

            NC also. I love snow, mostly because our snow is such a tease. “Six inches of snow tonight, guaranteed—oh wait, it’s just one inch of snow, then ice, then it’s going to rain for six days and be 48 degrees and cloudy.” To me that’s worse than snow.  But hey, let’s buy every loaf of bread and gallon of milk anyway…

          • LeBarron

            That pretty much sums up the last two “snows” we just had here in my part of the Triad.

          • judybrowni

            At about your age I moved from Manhattan to Los Angeles: it’ll be 70 degrees here this weekend, and sunny.

            Conversation tends to suck, but I’ll never be that cold again, and I live six blocks from the beach.

            But if not, I recommend fur jacket/coat (or, at least, fake fur) as the only way to get through a New York winter. (Plus fur/sheepskin-lined boots and gloves, and hat.)

            Down and wool and bulky layers just don’t cut it.

          • Amen, sister. 20 years ago I gave away my vintage calf-length fur coat and said I’d never do a New England winter again and, knock on wood, I haven’t had to. Except this year, that freak nor’easter in early Nov caught me out. Here’s to reading TLo a half-day later than everyone else.

          • lovelyivy

             I’ve lived here for most of my 33- I moved a few years ago, in great part to get away from the cold, and ended up quickly running right the hell back. It might be cold right now, but in the long run and as someone who goes where the jobs in my field are: cold NYC > warm and balmy (almost) everywhere else IMO.

          •  I lived in MA for 30 years and hated every single winter. Much happier now in San Francisco!

  • kirkyo

    I think I like what I can see of his red sweater.

    • Winter_White

      Ha!  Kirkyo, don’t know if you were trying to be funny or not… But after reading through a long string of comments about where Bitter Kittens live, and today’s various temperatures, I love that you decided to go ‘on topic’ and review a tiny patch of visible clothing!  🙂

  • Funkykatt

    Snow is pretty. We don’t get snow here in Sacramento. We hardly get any rain. Sunny days mainly. I am not complaining. 

    • LesYeuxHiboux

       Hardly any rain? When I lived there the freeway was flooded for at least three weeks straight every winter. Here in the North Valley it snows leaves in Autumn, which is quite the driving challenge, but so pretty the rest of the time it’s worth the struggle. 

      • Funkykatt

        I don’t remember that weather. We did have some flooding in ’95 but it’s pretty rare. I have friends in Tulsa and Billings who laugh when I mention bad weather. Apparently ice storms are worse than a little rain. 

        • twocee

          Ice storms are worse than any weather, including 25-inch blizzards.

          Ok, maybe not ANY weather — I’d take an ice storm over a tornado/hurricane.  But just barely.

          • LesYeuxHiboux

            I was in Oregon for a bad one about fifteen years ago, ice and very high wind. Gets pretty scary when the iced over powerlines are snapping and huge trees start fragmenting. I’ve been through big quakes, but I’m still most scared by tornadoes/hurricanes. Probably because it’s the only thing I haven’t been in yet.

    • raininmai

       My oldest is at school in Davis and we were remarking that they get about twice the rainfall there than we get in SoCal. I’m always happy to see some rain.

      Anyway, Mr. Craig needs some gloves!

    • Janet B

      The never ending fog is what I remember about my winters in Sacramento.

  • WHERE ARE HIS GLOVES? That man is insane.

    • karenbttc

      My first thought as well!  Poor chapped hands!

    •  You can tell which readers are from cold climates – that was my first thought, too!

      • fursa_saida

        Ha, I’m from Boston and I pretty much never wear gloves unless I’m actually working with my hands, outside, for hours. No hat, either, unless it’s a really exceptionally cold day.

      • random_poster

        I’m not in a cold climate, but that was my first thought.  Why?  Because I bring the gloves out when it hits 55 degrees.  The pictures of these two strikes fear in my wimpy heart.

    •  Exactly! No wonder he looks so miserable.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      he just finished working out.  he is still warm.  note the unzipped jacket.  yay for unzipped anything on that man.

    • GorgeousThings

      He’s a REAL man. REAL men don’t need no fuckin’ gloves! 🙂

    • Derek_anny

       If it’s cold enough for TWO hoods and a thick scarf, it’s cold enough for gloves.

      • AnaRoW

        Not necessarily.  It depends on what bothers you about the weather.   Yesterday in Detroit it was about 30 degrees, snow mixed with rain (an awful combination, like having slushies rain down on your head).  I wore a coat, hat and hood to keep the snow and rain off my head and face and no gloves or scarf because I wasn’t otherwise bothered.

  • kimmeister

    Wow, at first glance I thought we caught them in the middle of car problems, and that he was hauling a mini tank of gas around!

  • sablehunter

    I love living in Miami.  79 and sunny today.

    • Don’t take this the wrong way, but as a Minnesotan, I hate everybody from Miami right now.

      Actually, Minnesotans just hate everybody south of the Mason-Dixon line during the winter.

      • Call me Bee

        That’s funny and I relate, being a Wisconsinite.  But I was never really envious of those living in the South or West.  We kind of wear our crappy weather as a badge of honor around here–we are tough and strong and laugh–Ha ha–at the weather.  

        • Derek_anny

          As a NewEnglender, I’m with you.  Though we’ve recently got an inflow of soft southerners who wish for no snow all winter long.  If you want warm winters, move to Florida.  (That said, I’m not going anywhere near your state in the summer, because I’ve heard they’re rather humid.  Humidity and I don’t get along.)

      • Carrieanno

        Having been exiled to Michigan for way too long now, I can only say “amen.”

      • LeBarron

        Heh.  My grandparents are originally from Minnesota, so most of my extended family still lives there (I grew up and currently live in North Carolina).   People around here always ask how the winters are in Minnesota, and I just reply, “Yeah.  We don’t go there in the winter.”  The summers are lovely though!

        My mom is from Cleveland, so we used to go there for Christmas.  We got our fill of snow and winter weather for several days and left.  LOL.

      • ellenber

        I grew up in Boston, lived all around the country, and have ended up in Minnesota, which I love. In fact, we’re a little tired of the wimpy winters here lately, and we want the giant snowdrifts and below zero temps to come back! The seasons here are wonderful. As I’ve told more than one doubter: There is no bad weather — just inappropriate clothing. (Well, of course, you know, except for extreme conditions, i.e. tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.)

    • LesYeuxHiboux

       I am leaving for an internship on Key West this Sunday. So excited to miss the end of winter here in the North Valley (which is mostly just freezes and torrential rain).

      • DeborahJozayt

        enjoy the bicycling and all the cats! Bahia Honda is a great island to visit!

        • LesYeuxHiboux

           Thanks for the tip!

    • RebeccaKW

       North Texas and it was 80 yesterday.  It was beautiful.  I see pictures like this and I think “they went to the gym in a blizzard?  they shut down the town if we get a half inch of snow around here.” (I know it’s not really a blizzard, but it looks like it to my southern eyes.)

  • teensmom99

    This is how people should dress at Sundance. And in NYC when it snows.  Part of dressing well is having the appropriate gear.  No comment on the water jug.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      YES.  As a Utah Person, OMG the craptastic dressing at Sundance is just hilarious. They think we go to Park City to see the celebrities.  No.  We go 1) to watch incredible film and 2) to LAUGH at poorly dressed celebrities.  So there!  🙂

  • They look like mere mortals.  How refreshing.

  • Kate4queen

    What’s in his right hand? Is he smoking? Where are his gloves and button up those coats!! (Having lived in the UK, now in North California and have a house in Hawaii, I appreciate my sunshine.) 🙂

    • Sobaika

      They look like keys?

    • I think that’s a (car) key. And yes! Where are his gloves!  She looks cute and warm.

  • chitowndg

    Fun!  We had a day like this the other day, but global warming is getting me down.

  • formerlyAnon

    I love that, at least from a distance, having plenty of money to spend on practical cold weather clothing doesn’t improve the final effect much.

  • lilibetp

    Yeah, this was the day when it was about 20 degrees out, with a wind chill around 5 degrees.  The most beautiful movie stars look like the rest of us when it’s that cold.

  • Can I just point out that it was cold as hell in NYC last week and the fact that he’s got his coat open and no gloves on suggests that he’s posing his cute little tush off.

    • DTLAFamilies

      If he’s leaving the gym, maybe he’s just warm? I know I always felt overheated leaving the gym even when I lived in NYC, even after swimming.

      • True, but my ballet teacher would always yell at us for going out in the cold in just our tights after class. I still hear her voice in my head, and bundle up, even after hot yoga.

  • SassieCassy

    shes really adorable in the fuzzy hood and i love that they both are wearing sweats and look so annoyed with the weather. stars! they are just like us!

  • Grumpy-adorable. Like “yes, I am swaddled like a goddamn gigantic infant but under these nine layers I am sweltering…with hotness…like I’m OH FORGET IT LET’S GET TO THE NICE WARM CAR.” 

  • MilaXX

    Makes me feel better a out my fozzy bear coat. 

  • Where are his gloves?!?

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I am very much hoping that’s not fox on her head.  It’s not, right?  Someone say no.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      i would guess coyote, it’s the “go to” fur of parka hoods these days….

      • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

        Really? Coyote? that makes me sad. I know that they are considered a nuisance but I think they are beautiful. In Utah, there are a zillion of them. At night, if you are remotely away from the cities, you can hear them. I’m not going to bitch about Fur in General – but I’m a bit surprised she’s wearing real fur, given that there are many who have such strong feelings about it…

        • schadenfreudelicious

          plenty of them where i live here in Western Canada, in fact we see them often in the city, i agree they are lovely, though they do help themselves to the odd fluffy from time to time :)…i do know that many of the parka makers use coyote fur as trim (Canada Goose brand comes to mind), i wont bitch about fur either, but i will say that here in my arctic like climate fur trim on hoods is becoming much more popular again and the majority of it is definitelty coyote…

  • schadenfreudelicious

    -25 today in my Canadian Rockies home…i can fully relate 🙂

  • How did the paps even recognize them when they’re this bundled up? Also, my hands are cold just looking at his.

  • Holy shit, how damn cold is it in NY right now?!

    (Metaphorically. I have the google.)

    • Sobaika

      Today’s not bad, a few days ago it was 10 degrees though. 10 DEGREES.

      •  Oh hell no. It went down to 25 a couple weeks ago and I nearly froze.

      • RebeccaKW

         Hell is not hot.  Hell is less than 20 degrees.  ~shiver~

  • therealkuri

    OK. An a resident of northern Alberta, Canada, there aren’t a lot of stellar fashion moments in my life. I am not part of the scene. We spend way too much of the year wrapped up and guarding against cold, snow and it’s not uncommon for me to be splattered by mud from inconsiderate drivers when I walk down the sleep. However, my floor length, wool/alpaca black coat, handknit black and white fair isle patterned alpaca scarf, wool/alpaca blend grey beret and practical but not-too-bulky sketchers winter boots look way better than what these two stars are going with. And my walk to the train station this morning was -29C, with a windchill factor of “feels like -41C”. My budget is a helluva lot less than any star, too. This post is making me feel triumphant. 

    • schadenfreudelicious

      akk, and i am complaining about Calgary temps today 🙂

      • ashtangajunkie

        Calgary IS cold today. Not -41C, but still. Cold! 🙂 

  • Judy_J

    I look at these photos and I think to my self, “thank god I live in Austin, TX!”  It is currently partly cloudy and 83 degrees here.

    • formerlyAnon

       Get back to me in August.

      • Judy_J

        You made me laugh out loud!  And you are so right!  But hey, I’m just glad I don’t have to freeze 3 or 4 months out of the year.

        • formerlyAnon

           I’m also in Texas, and whine a lot in the 4th month of 95-105 degree days (with at least another month of hot left to go.)  But all it takes is a couple of days somewhere moderately cold and I realize I think the cold is worse. No longer acclimated to it.

  • I think Rachel looks adorable in her fur hat or fur-lined hood, she is radiant.

  • Call me Bee

    Celebs–they”re just like us.  Ya gotta bundle up when the weather is crappy no matter who you are! 

    Last week it was well below zero around here, and a reporter caught up with a guy walking down the street with a coyote (hat) on his head!!  Tail and all.  He said it may look silly, but it he was the warmest guy out there!

  • selianth

    Really, I would think that if these people aren’t shooting a movie, they’re probably working out 2-3 hours a day, so I can see going through that much water. (I often finish off my 20oz of water during a 45-minute workout.) A couple of the fellas that come to my gym regularly bring (and drink) a gallon bottle every time. The only bad part is when the last part of the workout is rowing and I feel the water sloshing back and forth and back and forth…

  • Pants_are_a_must

    This is why they’re my favorite celeb couple. ORANGE YOU GLAD YOU’RE IN NYC RIGHT NOW.

  • captrenault

    She’s confirming this trend for Sorel boots, it seems.  His Blundstones are an OK choice — good against salt staining, but not the best traction in snow.

    But yeah — gloves, man.  Srsly.

  • Rand Ortega

    I got hypothermia just looking at those photos!
    So happy I live in LA!

  • Carly Warnock

    I feel like they look like any couple in the North right now after the gym. Parkas, sweats, boots, en route to their car. Would like to know the brand of Rachel’s parka, the hood looks so fluffy!

    • It actually looks like real fur which disappoints me, Rachel.

    • NoraEPC

       Pretty sure it is Canada Goose. I’ve got friends with them and they are supposed to be super warm.

  • thecitysleeps

    He looks good in his sweatpants, OK?!

  • I live in NORTHERN CANADA.  It was -43 here with the wind chill.  You know it’s bad when you see snow and think “Oh, thank goodness that must mean it’s warming up!”  And I apologize for my post on the weather.  I’m totally THAT person now.

  • jilly_d

    Lol.  Here in Iowa, I give up trying to look fashionable from December-February.  I end up wearing sweatpants on top of sweatpants to go get milk.  They’re giving it their best, though, and for that, I salute them. 

  • TheLaurenJean

    This is the 1st time I’ve ever thought, “Celebrities: They’re just like me!” without any sarcasm.

  • mommyca

    OMG, when my hubby wears a hoodie like that I always make fun of him… but somehow in Daniel Craig it looks nice 😉 

  • sweetlilvoice

    It’s refreshing to see celebs dressed appropriately for the weather for once….JLo!

  • D’ya ever notice in nearly all “celeb on the street” posts, they always have their cell at the ready, even though they’re carrying huge bags or wearing coats w/ pockets?  Heaven forbid their hands aren’t always on that phone. Call me, Daniel!

    • If I was followed by shouting strangers with cameras all day long, I might keep a finger hovering over the 911 button too. 

  • Carrieanno

    Gave me enough to work with.  Go home with him, light a fire, cuddle up under a blanket. . . 

  • Louise Bryan

    It was cold.  It was snowing.  They put on all the warm clothes they could find.  Looks reasonable to me.

  • Major props for the reusable water bottles. 

  • n a

    Boo fur! I’ve always liked her, but that’s a major strike.

    • niesey2927

      How can you tell the fur is real from a picture?  Is PETA on speed dial?

      • It’s clearly real fur, but not a good enough reason to put a strike against her, IMHO.

  • CassandraMortmain

    Somehow I think that if Sarah Jessica Parker had been photographed on this snowy day, she would have been in a skirt and stilettoes with bare legs.  Actually, I’ve seen on her such a day and that’s exactly how she was dressed.  So points to Craig and Weisz for dressing appropriately.   Cannot wait til spring.

  • Where are his gloves??

    • kschwarting

      As someone who lives in subzero climate, that was my first thought.

    • niesey2927

      He most likely pulled off the gloves to retrieve his car keys.  He is thoroughly bundled even with the scarf so I am sure gloves were in order.

  • guest2visits

    Love these pics; it looks like an enjoyable moment in the snow, to me.
    Although I want to tell Daniel the coat would work better zipped up.

  • jonnyf8

    that’s the best I’ve ever seen her look.

  • marilyn

    Grungeglam:  Rachel is wearing a very expensive fur hat, but the rest of her is strictly KMart.  I realize every single thing she is wearing is probably hideously expensive, but it all looks cheap.  Especially those shoes.  So, if she is going for the low end look, why the hat?

    • Where do you LIVE?? Nowhere with snowstorms and bloody-minded cold weather?

    • niesey2927

      Possibly she was not going for any “look” but simply trying to stay warm while going from the gym to her car in the snow.  Just a thought that she was not attempting to make a fashion statement but completed a work out when cameras were thrust into their faces.

  • Snowy Daniel is cranky. Snowy Rachel is cute.

  • lalahartma

    Haha! He looks miserable and needs some moisturizer. She looks cute.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    And here I thought James Bond was toting a personal urinal instead of a water bottle.


    Sorry but they look adorable all rugged up and eskimo like and in love in the snow. 

  • Jennifer Coleman

    I just love these photos. That is all.

  • ccm800

    Daniel!!!!!!!!!! Hold a lady’s hand when shes trouncing through slippery snow  you oaf!!!!!

  • Beth G

    Gosh.. so nice of him to stay next to her.  Should she hit a patch of ice he’ll be right there to catch her.

    Oh.  No.  Wait.

  • willworktomorrow

    What those layers and layers of clothes on Daniel Craig look like is of no concern to me, because they will be hitting the floor very quickly.

  • OH, Daniel, please come on down to New Orleans RIGHT NOW (it was 75 here yesterday) and let me help you out of all that bulky clothing!   Oh, and Rachel: I LOVED you in “The Shape of Things” on Broadway, but Daniel will be here on a “guys’ trip”.  🙂

  • lizlemonglasses

    It looks like she is wearing my Sorel boots? Which means Rachel Weisz and I have something in common… ? Why couldn’t it have been the man, instead of the boots?
