TMZ reports that Darren Aronofsky and Rachel Weisz have split after nine years together. They add to the slew of celebrity couples breaking up over the last month, withÃ‚Â Kellan Lutz and AnnaLynne McCord, Carey Mulligan and Shia LeBoeuf, Blake Lively and Penn Badgely andÃ‚Â David Arquette and Courteney Cox all going their separate ways. What’s in the water, Hollywood?
These two were quite the quiet power couple, even if they never actually married. Aronofsky is a lauded director with The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream under his belt. Weisz, on the other hand, has both blockbusters (The Mummy) and critically acclaimed work (The Constant Gardner and The Fountain) to her name.
There’s no real word on why they broke up but their people have a released a statement saying, “Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky have been separated for some months. They remain close friends and are committed to raising their son together in NYC.” On the salacious side of things, sources report that Weisz and Daniel Craig have something going on, and have been for months. Whether that’s true or false remains to be seen, but it sure is hot to think about!
