Claire Danes' New Man

Claire Danes' New Man

We used to love Claire Danes. Then that whole weird Billy Crudup thing happened. You know, he was about to have a baby with the fabulous, Mary-Louise Parker and then he left her very pregnant to be with Claire. Well, now they are over and Claire is supposedly with British actor Hugh Dancy. You might remember him from Basic Instinct 2 (Oh right - no one saw that crappy movie). Anyway, evidently he's up and coming and Claire is smitten and doesn't care who knows. The only problem is he might be playing for both teams if you know what I mean. Here's more:

The handsome British actor 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.

The problem with dating a bisexual is that you have twice as many people to compete with. As for Claire, maybe she should lay low for a while. We want to root for her again, but we haven't had many reasons to want to recently.

Yeah, I never did like Claire Danes but after the Crudup fiasco, I hated her even more. Turns out Hugh Dancy has a (on and off) girlfriend. If that's the case then she's a certified home-wrecker!

I think Billy might be worse than KFed, because he walked out on his 7 month pregnant GF of 7 years! And for a very young woman. With KFed, everyone except Britney knew from the start he was playing her for the money, so there wasn't much of an expectation.

It reminds me of a conversation i hadwith my girlfriends ....basically i ask them, "if you guy cheated on you,which ass would you kick first his or the girl's?" One of my friend was like i would kick the girl's ass,i was like hell no!!!!!i would get really pissed at my boyfriend cause HE is the one i love ,HE is the one i trust,He is the one i'm in a relashionship with,and HE is supposed to be faithful,(another of my girlfriend agreed with me).Of course i would hate on the other chick,but first and formost i would have a serious conversation with my boyfriend.

She's a mess and Billy Crudup should be castrated for what he did to Mary Louise Parker. He's no better than K-Fed. Now there's a distinction! And Claire is trash for participating in that whole scenario. To say that the other women are always faultless is ridiculous. That sounds like something a chronic cheater would think up to defend their behavior. And who would want a man who would leave a pregnant girlfriend anyway? She's a moron.

Claire Danes really is an amazing actress. I honestly didn't even know Billy left MLP for Claire. Over and done now.

I don't see how the "Other Woman" is responsible for the happiness of whoever else. If you're in a relationship with someone and they dump you, even if you're in the labor room, it's not the other woman's fault. It's misplaced blame and a total cop out. Anyway, like abortion, capital punishment and loyalty to Rosie O'Donnell, most people have strong opinions one way or another. We're not going to agree. I like her work. I like that I know relatively little about her personal life. I also like Mary Louise Parker as an actress. I love Weeds. It's a brilliant show. If we judged actors solely based on the details of their personal lives, we'd have no actors to watch. I'm of the opinion now that the less I know about an actor, the better. The most talented people are often but not always infamous because...well...they can be. The least talented people compensate one way or the other (Paris Hilton with sex and controversy, Hilary Duff with saccharin attitude, and the list goes on and on). Also, I strongly believe that OW only hurt themselves. The man in question will always find someone or something to run to. A man who is dedicated to his partner wouldn't cheat or leave. “I can’t stand those articles where people spill their life story. After a while I feel like I know more about them than their best friend does — and that’s weird. It’s better when you don’t know everything.” -Scarlett Johannson

It's a shame that Billy is nice looking and a good actor because I've hated him for the MLP break-up. I didn't even realize they were together this long. Claire was good in Shopgirl.

She has horrible taste in men. I just saw her in The Family Stone, and really like her as an actress. As a person, I dunno.

I'm with Pad here. I understand that you shouldn't solely blame the other woman, E_P, but do you not think that it shows a lack of kindness and respect for other people in general when a woman chooses to hook up with a man she knows is in a committed relationship? Of course Billy Crudup is an ass, that's clear. But Claire also willfully disregarded the feelings of another person and that's always sucky.

Wow, I like Claire Danes, but I didn't know any of this. She's a little bit slutty!

Billy can't be surprised by this. After all, she did the exact same thing to her last boyfriend. I bet MLP is enjoying her last laugh.

I don't think there is anything that great about her either. I think eventually she will get hers. I hope she is careful while she is out sleeping with everyone. There are still germs out there.
