you know what...wouldn't we have seen rachel with daniel by now if this were true and besides the shots we see of them walking together on set. Leave both rachel and darren alone. This is a very difficult and frustrating time for there family and to put this piece of **** on your website is completely disgusting and brutal. Who knows why they split...it's not the world's business to know, it's theirs. Anyone agree with me?

I guess the significant others of these actors and actresses either need to get used to the idea of their spouse cheating on them, or just never have a relationship/marriage in the first place. How many Hollywood marriages have been broken up because one of them hooked up with their co-star on the set of their new project?

News flash...this guy was not that nice to her. He in fact was downright mean spirited. She struggles with her issues with fame and she also struggles with her life. She does a good job with her son. She is a good jewish mom. He is slightly pscho, greedy, cheap and abrasive. There is no love from Darren. He is like the movie PI. She was never going to marry him anyway, because he was not willing to convert. No really, he's good for a while, but his stuff gets old, the guys not that easy to get along with, his main emotion is sarcasm. Also, I wish they would have stayed together for the kids sake, but he works crazy hours and dads/directing don't work. She is nice, but he makes most people stressed out, and I am sure he is okay by himself too---but together these people were not a good fit. As far as the bond guy, I'm sure if she was into him, we'd all know. For crying out loud, her kids good looking too, I'm pretty sure she can find a nice jewish husband in no time.

Satsuki did not forgive Daniel a second time after realizing he had feelings for Rachel.
http://www.gossiprocks.com/forum/gossip-archive/1376-daniel-craigs-girlfriend-forgives-him.html

He bought that $2 mil condo for her as a keep quiet present. Plus both couples were having problems and he would not marry Satsuki and was a shoulder for Rachel to lean on with her problems.
I think they will make a great couple. She's British, nearer her age and I hope they will be happy.

Darren is very organize and down to earth person and rachel is messy and loving wife... Have you remember her last interview that darren is getting angry everytime she messed up their house. May be, he wants to teach her a lesson. And Rachel is very dedicated to her family.

from a source
"i just spoke to some people who work on the set of "dream house". they all said the same thing, daniel and rachel are old news. most everyone working there has known about almost from the beginning. as one of those working on the set put it "it was kind of obvious, every time you saw dan he was with rachel on and off the set" what surprises these people is not that news has come out but that it took so long to do so."

TBH this whole thing seems fishy.
Yes he and Satsuki haven't been papped together for some time and an apartment is bought in her name and no pictures of them together yet to quell any rumours nor any denial from either party. Just a few sightings apparently told to other websites.

If they are still together, this has to be awful for Satsuki but again maybe she left first?

Maybe the commitment ceremony that apparently happened this year/last year wasn't enough for her?
And to add to that, he was seen wearing a wedding band earlier this year at the Haiti Telethon speculating they were married resulting in that denial by a source that nothing legal has changed. And to add insult to injury apparently it was a prop ring for Dream House where his character is married to Rachel - how ironic...

I think Satsuki saw the light that Daniel wasn't going to fully commit (marry and have kids), saw he has a wandering eye maybe and she was sick and tired of seeing other people marry after long term relationships. The marriage between Harrison Ford and Calista while Daniel was filming with him in New Mexico must of hit hard too.

Looking back it's easy to see that they weren't (Daniel and Satsuki) happy internally in a few pictures but like all people were probably trying to keep it going.

I don't think Rachel is to blame for a split between Daniel and Satsuki (if there is one) nor do I think Daniel is to blame for Rachel's split.

I think what we have here are two couples whose relationships ran out of steam and, if anything, maybe Daniel found solace with Rachel for a bit.
As for public statements, I think neither are going to give any therefore fanning the flames but if Satsuki is still in the picture though, what an awful feeling that the man who loves you won't come out and declare openly that they are still together. He did say at the QoS premiere that he loved her so why not now? Surely now is the right time.

Anyway, we will see soon enough who is with whom.

Dani and Satsuki are not together. Whether they will pictured together is anyone's guess, they are trying to remain friends.

As for Dan and Rachel, they were together, do not know about now.

I also read elsewhere that maybe this is PR to squash any gay rumours.
No not true. Dan is not gay as far as I know.

First of all Dan would never allow any member of his PR team to circulate a rumour like that to cover up anything especially as there is Satsuki involved irrespective of whether they are still together.

Secondly, if anything, maybe some Universal PR guy thought it would be "fun' to start something up as Dream House needs a boost and those studio PR teams don't give a f*ck for anyone's feelings. Wouldn't be surprised especially after Dan and Rachel were seen together many times off set in Toronto (not saying they were having an affair) and Satsuki wasn't not there all the time.
Then the studio leapt at their chance when Rachel split from Darren.

The age difference between them is only 2 years, she has a kid already, perfect woman for Daniel. It seems the 9 year age gap with he and Satsuki proved a challenge as they matured and she then became broody.

It's clear Daniel does not want marriage and children with anyone.

Having said that, this could be a complete smokescreen on Daniel and Satsuki getting married and her being pregnant.

So John Mayer isn't above denying something but again, he isn't going to reshoot two weeks of film on a project (D House) that will be a flop anyway.

I believe the actual age difference is 11 years. Ms Mitchell was born in 1979. & Daniel Craig was born 1968. I do agree with you on that Daniel Craig has had two long term relationships and produced no marriages and no children. It seems obvious he does not want to marry and he already has an 18 year old daughter. I think Daniel Craig wants a relationship just no trimmings. If you know what I mean.
