Rachel Weisz is ready to take her role as James Bond's leading lady from off screen to reel life.

Even before taking his third turn as 007 in Skyfall, Daniel Craig renewed his license to kill on the silver screen for at least two more films in the lucrative, long-running franchise. Now his wife — with whom he tied the knot in 2011 — is open to joining him in the spy series.

“I’d like to!" she told Esquire UK's April issue, on newsstands March 7, of potentially playing a Bond Girl. "I wouldn’t say no. I’m not a snob about entertainment.”

It wouldn't be the first time the pair teamed up in front of the camera. Weisz and Craig first met while filming the critically-panned 2011 psychological thriller, Dream House. And after Weisz confirmed she's set for her Broadway debut, it's been speculated that the couple could storm the Great White Way together in Harold Pinter’s play, Betrayal.

While their professional relationship is public, Weisz says she plans to keep her lips sealed about their private life in part for the sake of their children.

She currently shares her son Henry, 6, with Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky and Craig shares daughter Ella, 20, with his ex-wife, actress Fiona Loudon.

“There are lots of people involved, including children who are getting older," she explained. "And they didn’t choose to have us as parents. I genuinely just don’t think it’s very fair on them to have their parents talk about stuff.”

Though she's nabbed many leading roles throughout her career, Oscar-winning Weisz doesn't consider herself a typical Hollywood actress.

“Some of the material I’m attracted to is not… it’s just not commercial," she admitted. "Which means it’s really f**king interesting, you know? It’s off-center. It doesn’t fit in a genre.”

    She actually said she would play a villan, not a Bond girl.
