Daniel Craig & Satsuki Mitchell are over, but was it because of Rachel Weisz?

People are still trying to figure out what exactly happened with Daniel Craig, Satsuki Mitchell, Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky. The problem is that none of the main figures in the story are speaking or giving any indication of what really happened. First, there was the report from TMZ about Rachel and Darren splitting, and that the rumor was that Rachel and Daniel were now getting hot and heavy. Then the British tabloid the Daily Mail ran a report in which unnamed sources “confirmed” that Rachel and Daniel had indeed had an affair/relationship, although the details of which were not forthcoming. A day after that, E! News’ gossip guy Marc Malkin had another report claiming the opposite. A source said: “Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz have been friends since their theater years when they were younger. They are the best of friends, but not lovers.” The main crux of that report was that Daniel was/is still with Satsuki Mitchell. Well… now The Telegraph has a report about Daniel and Satsuki being over:

Appropriately for the man who plays James Bond, Daniel Craig has kept his love life shrouded in mystery. Now, his agents have added to the intrigue by declining to deny rumours that the 42-year-old actor has broken off his engagement to Satsuki Mitchell, 34, an American film producer, whom he has been courting for more than five years.

“Things seem to have cooled between them,” says a friend of the couple. Last week, sources close to the actor denied that he had played any part in the demise of Rachel Weisz’s relationship with Darren Aronofsky, the American director.

The British actress, 40, announced that she and Aronofsky, 41, by whom she has a four-year-old son, Henry, had been “separated for some months”.

It was alleged that Weisz had fallen “head over heels” for Craig on the set of the thriller Dream House, in which they play a married couple. In 1994, he divorced Fiona Loudon, the Scottish actress, by whom he has a daughter, Ella, after a two-year marriage.

Now, what do I believe from this cycle of whispers? Here’s the theory that I’m working on right now: I think Daniel and Satsuki are over, and that they’ve probably been over for months. I think their relationship probably ended around the same time as Rachel and Darren’s. I think Rachel and Daniel probably did have an affair or some kind of romantic or sexual relationship, but the relationship isn’t ongoing. They’re either taking a break, a breather while they ended their relationships and cleaned up their messes, and will come back together a few months from now OR it was just a simple affair and it’s over and everyone is moving on. That’s my theory.

    I wouldn’t say that Hollywood very often espouses the values that most of the rest of us do.

  2. mslewis says:

    Let me tell you what I believe . . . these are four adults who have decided that it is nobody’s business what they do in their personal lives and so they are all keeping their mouths shut and going on with their lives. I believe that only the ragmags care about these four people because none of them are the least bit interesting to 99.999% of the population of the world.

    I also believe that if you asked 10 random tourists on the street in Hollywood who the hell these people are, all ten would give you a blank stare when you name Rachel Weitz; perhaps two of them will remember that Aronsfky has something to do with directing or something; maybe five will remember Craig was in a couple Bond movies; and none of them would know what a Satsuki Mitchell is. So my advice to the rags and gossip sites is to stop trying to make people care about these people and just leave them alone.

    That’s what I believe.

  3. crap says:

    Telegraph is not trustworthy either. As well as dailymail and tmz. Daniel would never give a statement about his personal life, not via source or else.

  4. lillo says:

    ..Who cares?

  5. N.D. says:

    Telegraph is just reposting rumors, nothing more.

    BTW Lainey said that back in July there was a sighting she trusts of Daniel and Satsuki being all lovey-dovey. That goes against your theory that both couples broke up around the same time.

  6. Mel says:

    The Telegraph report is probably nearest to the truth. It’s a broadsheet newspaper giving it much more crediblity over the Daily Mail rag which is the worst of the worst in the UK.

    To Ms. Lewis, your comment oozes irony. Why the heck are you on a celebrity gossip site???

  7. Henriette says:

    Srsly, Ms. Lewis… if you don’t care about celebrity gossip, what are you doing on this site?

    I hope Craig split with Sats Mitchell; I’m tired of gazing at his hotness, only to then have to see her muppet-face beside it.

  8. Lee says:

    Satsuki Mitchell, 34, an American film producer

    Can someone who knows, please explain to me what the heck Ms. Mitchell’s job is?

    I know this may be a stupid question, but I honestly do not understand, I thought producer’s financed films. How is she 34 and financing films as a full-time job? Is she from money?

    Thank you in advance to anyone who answers this question!

  9. Henriette says:

    I think a producer can find other people to finance the films: puts the money together, so to speak.

  10. deinemudda says:

    The Telegraph report is just an assumption nothing more, there is no friend of daniel who would speak to the press. Nothing is official. And the lainey sighting was not in july, it was in august.

  11. anti says:

    not feeling that mustache!

  12. Lisa Turtle says:

    If Satsuki is 34, then I’m the Queen of England. Her wrinkled skin indicates she is a woman of at least 40, if not mid-40s.

  13. Lala11_7 says:

    @Lisa Turtle…

    Being a woman who just turned 43…I take complete and UTTER umbrage to your statement that Sat must be in her 40s because of the wrinkles on her face…

    40s do not = wrinkles!!!


  14. Shi-gatsu says:

    an affair is never simple.

  15. lasherola says:

    Love them both…..hope its true, they make a cool couple.

  16. Cleo says:

    If somebody loves you and wants to be with you forever, they do not make you play outdoor tennis with them, golf with them, or go on beach holidays with them. Unfortunately, the well-rested and pale Rachel Weisz looks nice in that photo with Daniel Craig – they look nice together but I don’t believe that they are a real couple at all. As for his prior relationship, it sucks that something that turned out to be unsuccessful is recorded on google images.

  17. 4Real says:

    I’m sorry but NO WAY is she 34 and WTH is up with that adams apple?? RUN DANIEL!!! RUN!!!

  18. Lisa says:

    As much as I <3 Craig, and the idea of him and Mitchell together, that mustache makes me feel like she’s better off without him.

  19. Crash says:

    Lisa: WHAT wrinkles?? You mean the lines around her mouth that appear when she SMILES? That’s how normal faces work. You must be too used to seeing the botoxed, filled up, puffer fish frozen faces of most of Hollywierd.

  20. dubdub2000 says:

    Note to directors: do not use your wife in a movie you are directing as the romantic lead as she will have some kind od love scene which will you have to direct and which pretty much dooms your union to FAILURE.
    Case in point:
    -Rachel Weisz (the fountain)
    -Kate Winslet (Revolutionary road)

  21. Camille says:

    Does anyone else see the similarities in the faces of Daniel and Satsuki? Their profiles for example are very similar. Spooky.

    As for this story, I think RW and DC maybe had an affair and nothing else came of it. I hope they don’t end up together.

  22. maria says:

    @Camille – they do have similar jaws and facial structure. I see it, too.

  23. Jayna says:

    Rachael is 40. Wow. I never would have guessed. I always thought she was like 34.

  24. DR. debBrazil says:

    People! If they split, it is best for him, Satsuki is ugly! Daniel deserves someone better, perhaps as Rachel …
    Why is that handsome man just gets ugly woman? No way! Daniel Craig is beautiful too …

    Daniel takes a leap here in Brazil, for you see what a beautiful woman!!!!

  25. Tina says:

    Satsuki(pronounced Setski) as my husbands college girlfriend. My husband is always walking around like hes someone because she’s Daniel Craig’s girlfriend. So happy to read that I’m not the only that thinks she is mousy and way too skinny. LOL you made my day!

  26. Anonymous says:

    he’s a twirp who has forgotten where he comes from. Satsuki is a cold fish. Rachel is far too intelligent for Craig. And now she’s married to him! What a mistake. His pumped up muscles will not be so appealing in a few months time. Have you ever seen him being interviewed? Not exactly charming or eloquent by any stretch of the imagination. She must find him good in bed or something

  27. Cleo says:

    She looks Latina to me.
