NEWLY SINGLE RACHEL WEISZ LINKED TO DANIEL CRAIG

Posted in Rachel Weisz on November 9, 2010 by fadedblog

Rachel Weisz isn’t letting the demise of her relationship with her fiance get her down.

The Oscar-winning actress was in good spirits as she left her home in Manhattan today (November 9) after recently announcing she has split from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky.

Miss Weisz has allegedly been linked to actor Daniel Craig since her split. The pair are believed to have grown close while they played husband and wife in forthcoming thriller Dream House.

A source says the 40-year-old big screen beauty was “head over heels” for Bond star Daniel, who is engaged to producer Satsuki Mitchell.

“Rachel and Daniel simply sparked during the filming of Dream House in Canada,” said an insider. “They have great chemistry. Darren’s such a good and responsible man, but Daniel’s the opposite extreme, he’s brooding and mysterious. Darren and Rachel have simply grown apart, they spent long periods away from each other, moving in different directions.”

Rachel and Darren have been together for nine years and have a four-year-old son named Henry.

NATALIE PORTMAN BRINGS ‘BLACK SWAN’ TO THE TORONTO FILM FESTIVAL

It was all eyes on Natalie Portman as she attended the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Black Swan at Roy Thomson Hall on Monday night (September 13).

Joined by co-stars Winona Ryder, Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel as well as director Darren Aronofsky and his wife Rachel Weisz, the 29-year-old actress was on hand to debut her new pyschological thriller to Canadian audiences.

To prepare for the role of Nina, Natalie (already tagged as Oscar bait) reportedly studied ballet for ten months.

She stars as an insecure, self-mutilating prima ballerina who becomes unravelled as she gets her big break—a chance to play both the White Swan and the Black Swan in an adventurous production of Swan Lake.

The movie has been called a ballet answer to The Wrestler. Mostly due to the fact that it comes from the same director.
