SUPERMODEL Kate Moss has fallen in love with hunky British actor Daniel Craig. Kate, 30, and the Tomb Raider star have been dating for a month after meeting through mutual friends. The catwalk queen fell for the craggy-faced actor after his seven-year relationship with Love Actually beauty Heike Makatsch collapsed. Kate is said by pals to be "besotted" with Daniel, 35, who starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in last year's movie weepie Sylvia. And the multi- millionaire cover girl has told friends the romance is serious. "It was love at first sight for Kate," said a pal last night. "Daniel is bright, charming and leads a very low-key life - just what Kate's looking." This weekend the couple are enjoying a romantic break in New York. They flew first-class into Newark Airport on Thursday night and were whisked through formalities by an escort from British Airways. Kate walked 20ft ahead of Daniel, who pushed a luggage cart with four bulging bags. Realising they had been spotted by photographers, panicking Kate asked the BA man for help and the couple were whisked through a back door to a waiting limo. They spent the night in their suite on the top floor of the trendy Maritime Hotel in the Chelsea district. The pounds 400-a- night hotel has porthole windows and spectacular views of the Hudson River. Kate - worth pounds 15million as one of the world's top models - got up at dawn onFriday for a photo-shoot and Daniel left the hotel just before midday, returning at 5.15pm carrying flowers and a bag of gifts from posh department store Barney's. Kate returned that evening and squealed with delight when she spotted friends in the lobby. She spent five minutes chatting before returning to her suite, where sheand Daniel ordered a room- service pizza The friend said: "It is serious, and they both know it. Kate doesn't want anything to rock the boat. She is blown away by him. "Only her closest friends were in on the secret. They all think he is utterly gorgeous." The pair met after Daniel, who has an 11-year old daughter from a brief marriage in his 20s, starred with Kate's pal Rhys Ifans, 37, in the new film Enduring Love.THEnews will come as a blow to Kate's estranged partner Jefferson Hack, father of her toddler daughter Lila Grace. He still had hopes of reviving their four-year relationship. Magazine boss Hack, 31, moved out of their London home two weeks ago, but the couple remain "good mates". Daniel lived with beautiful German actress Heike, 33 - Alan Rickman's man-eating secretary in Love Actually - before parting just after Christmas. The friend added: "Both he and Kate want to keep things low- key. But the sexual chemistry between them is so potent that you'd be blind not to see it. Some things you just can't keep quiet." Daniel is one of Britain's brightest new stars. He got his big break in the 1996 BBC drama Our Friends In The North then starred opposite Angelina Joliein the first Tomb Raider blockbuster. A role in the period romp Moll Flanders - in which he energetically ravished ER star Alex Kingston - was followed by a string of critically-acclaimedfilms, including The Road To Perdition with Tom Hanks. He won a British Independent Film Award Best Actor prize for his role as a schizophrenic in last year's gritty drama SomeVoices. Daniel, from Chester, has an army of female admirers But he is wary of the limelight, insisting: "I don't believe in self-promotion."
