Weisz’s terrifying first date with Aronofsky

The couple, who have a three-year-old son, Henry, began their romance in 2002 with an outing to New York’s famed amusement park area, Coney Island.

And Weisz admits her first date nerves were shattered when the director encouraged her to join him on a particularly scary ride.

She tells Britain’s Esquire magazine, “There’s a prehistoric rollercoaster there called The Cyclone. It’s made of wood and literally falling apart. It’s kind of a museum piece. It does not look safe in any way. It really terrified me. But I felt like it was an initiation test and if I said no I wouldn’t be his. I think it was probably the best date of my life.”
