Is Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz trying to "play Cupid" for Halle Berry and Keanu Reeves? That's the story in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can set the record straight.
A supposed source tells the National Enquirer, "Halle's been hot for Keanu for years - and her dreams came true when their mutual pal Daniel Craig introduced them a couple of years ago." Berry and Reeves recently worked together on John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, and according to the magazine, sparks flew on set.
"They had a ton of chemistry and now that the film is in the can, they've been flirting up a storm in texts and emails," adds the outlet's alleged insider, who further contends that Craig and his wife are "doing their best to play Cupid. They're convinced they've made a good match."
None of this is true. Craig co-starred with Berry in the 2018 movie Kings, while Reeves worked with Weisz on 1996's Chain Reaction and 2005's Constantine. It seems the tabloid is playing connect the dots to come up with a reason why Craig and Weisz would be playing matchmaker for the John Wick 3 co-stars. Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Craig, who tells us on the record there's "no truth" to the magazine's report. Despite what the outlet's anonymous source claims, the actor's spokesperson confirms the article is a work of fiction.
Last May, Gossip Cop busted the Enquirer's sister publication, Life & Style, for falsely claiming Reeves and Berry were dating after getting close on the set of their movie. Not only did a source close to the actress dismiss the rumor, but Berry had only spent one day on the set of John Wick 3 at the time the article was published.
Just last week, the tabloid's other sister outlet, OK!, insisted that Berry and Reeves have been developing a romance now that they've wrapped shooting their upcoming movie. Gossip Cop was once again told by a trusted source that the relationship between the co-stars is completely platonic and professional. It's just the tabloids that insist on "playing Cupid" for the pair.
It's also worth noting, the Enquirer has been alleging for years that Craig and Weisz's marriage is in trouble. Gossip Cop has called out the magazine several times over the years for falsely claiming the spouses had split. Last year, they welcomed their first child together. The tabloid clearly has no insight into the couple's marriage, or their involvement in anyone else's love life.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
