Daniel Craig, homewrecker?
Well this came out of nowhere. No, not the Rachel Weisz/Darren Aronofsky split, but that Daniel Craig may have had something to do with it?
Weisz and Aronofsky have confirmed to TMZ that they’ve separated. Their reps say it happened months ago and that they remain good friends and will raise their son together. TMZ also notes however that Rachel has been “linked” to Daniel Craig “for months”. They worked together in Toronto on a film called Dream House that wrapped in March of this year. Etalk has exclusive photos from the shoot on the show tonight.
Daniel is currently in Sweden filming The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. He was spotted out for dinner with director David Fincher and friends on Sunday night. Photos are attached. Daniel has also been involved for years with Satsuki Mitchell. Mitchell and Aronofsky visited the Toronto set of Dream House quite often. Craig and Mitchell were for sure still together as of July 2010 just before Comic-Con when I received a sighting about them at dinner – no paps were around – looking very much in love and happy and sharing their food. Since then however they’ve not been seen publicly and it’s unclear whether or not she accompanied him to Sweden. Having said that, Weisz hasn’t been seen in Sweden either. And Daniel has been focused on the film. He’s been content to stay grounded there to concentrate on being Mikael Blomkvist.
Weisz and Aronofsky however did present a united front at TIFF just 2 months ago in September – photos attached. Aronofsky, as you know, is right in the thick of an Oscar campaign with Black Swan. Looks like he’ll be working the circuit as a single man this time around.
Is it true, then? Are Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig happening? I have no idea. I’d heard nothing of it before waking up this morning. And it seems to be a surprise for everyone else too. Here’s an old photo taken in 2004 at a screening for Enduring Love of Weisz and Craig together. So they’ve known each other for years. And they’re just taking up with each other now? After making a movie? By all means let’s bitch the sh-t out of their asses when it’s verified. But right now there’s a lack of slamdunkness about this entire story. Requires further investigation.
