Naomie Harris in no rush to wed

Naomie Harris will only marry if she finds someone she "truly" wants to be with forever.

The 39-year-old actress - who has been in a relationship with boyfriend Peter Legler since 2014 - thinks committing to someone is a "beautiful and incredible" thing to do but she won't tie the knot unless she knows she means every word of her vows.

Asked if she's feeling the pressure to wed, she told Glamour magazine: "I think you should only marry if you truly find someone you want to spend your life with.

"I always cry at weddings, because it's just such a beautiful and incredible thing to stand up there in front of all your friends and family and say, 'I want to be with you for the rest of my life' But I do think you should only get married if you feel that way."

Turning 40 this year doesn't faze the 'Spectre' star because she is confident in her own skin.

She said: "When you're younger, you can't see the agendas, sadnesses or longing behind people telling you, 'You have to do this or that'. But I know my own mind and voice now."

And with two movies, 'Collateral Beauty' and 'Moonlight', set for release this year, Naomie thinks it's time to ease her own expectations of herself.

She said: "I'm in a really good place. I've been on that train for so long and I feel I've done so much of achieving this and achieving that. So maybe now I can give myself more of a break, you know? Be gentler with myself."
