Claire Danes and Billy Crudup: what comes around

Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes

Claire Danes is a prime example of the old adage “If they did it with you, they’ll do it to you.” She hooked up with Billy Crudup on a movie set while he was with seven months-pregnant actress Mary Louise Parker and she was with adoring Australian singer Ben Lee. These two cheaters set up house together, but then Danes cheated on Crudup three years later – predictably with one of her co-cast members, Hugh Dancy:

The handsome British actor [Hugh Dancy] is “the other man” in the Claire Danes/Billy Crudup breakup – although some might be surprised he hooked up with her and not him.

An eyewitness says Danes and Dancy got together Nov. 2, a month before the split with Billy.

According to the source, they shared a bed “with the door two feet ajar, and everybody listening” in his suite at the swanky hotel where the cast was staying while filming “Evening” in Newport, R.I.

But horny Hugh didn’t limit his attention to the ladies.

“The cast was pretty much drunk every night,” says the snitch. “Hugh also made out with [screenwriter] Michael Cunningham in the lobby.”

Plus, he was seen snogging the gay hotel manager, who lost his job.

So I guess this guy Hugh Dancy swings both ways. It seems like Danes has a type. Dancy has some superficial features in common with Ben Lee, Danes’ boyfriend of 7 years before she left him for Crudup. Crudup, Lee, and Dancy are all moderately good looking brunette guys.

From all reports, Mary Louise Parker handled Crudup’s incredible insensitivity well, and even went out of her way to let his family members see their baby after he ditched her. Now I guess Crudup knows how it feels to be cheated on. What comes around.

    I’m guessing the problems started long before she slept with this mo.

    I really used to like her. A good actres and unconventionally pretty–fantastic in My So-Called Life. Too bad she’s a ‘ho.

  3. just me says:

    This girl is a damn slut. She’s still in her twenties so u can imagine how many more D!cks she’s going to go through.

    Ben Lee, good-looking??? I suppose he’s gotten a bit better, but I remember around the time they started dating (1998? 1997?) he was really goofy looking, and I thought it was odd/cute that Claire Danes had a crush on him.

    Yes, she’s a ho’ but am I the only one who somehow finds it refreshing that it was the guy that got burned for once?

    I have to take issue with that. Ben Lee is hideous!
    (I’m with you, Luigi.)

    Oddly they all have rather groovy bodies of work… Mayry Louise P, Billy C and Claire Danes … I think if you got no money issues … changeable and challenging employ …life’s grand feast is gonna be moveable … God bless their little Bohemian socks … I say let the Merry Go Round keep spinning

    Compelling…Theatre, as an art form, produces passion, and inspiration, however, as a consequence, creates splintered, unfocused people (actors), who can only exist in script. Holy Crap! My 2-yr-old just pointed to the window, and said, “Soleil”!!! Wow! I gotta go take my babies to the park, l8r.

    Yes I hear you can get great prices for French Speaking babies this week … make all haste and don’t let them haggle you down 🙂

    Hey, I can sell my baby?
    Is Angelina Jolie taking mulatto babies this month?

    No Snap at International Adoption, I’m honestly considering adopting a Cambodian baby girl. Not because I want to be considered some kind of Angel, but because I want a baby girl, and Cambodia is a logical choice, considering I have access (a relative who works at a Cambodian orphanage.).
    This theoretical child will be loved as much as my naturals, but certainly no more because of her background. It’s her new life I want to celebrate, not the Hell she escaped. I don’t want her to define herself that way, I want her to be a healthy, happy, smart-assed American kid, who knows she can do, or have, whatever she wants (within reason).

    The rumor was that Billy and Mary Louise were breaking up when she suddenly got pregnant after years of being in a relationship. I’ve heard that she’s also a bit crazy…

    Hey! I think Ben Lee’s really attractive!
