Motion to forgive Claire Danes. Second?
Claire is currently promoting a lovely, lovely, lovely movie called Evening with a kick ass stellar cast including Meryl Streep, Vanessa Redgrave, Toni Collette, Patrick Wilson, and her maybe gaybe boyfriend Hugh Dancy. In an interview with the Toronto Star, Claire addresses her homewrecking history – an affair with Billy Crudup while Mary Louise Parker was 7 months pregnant with his child.
It’s not a full blown open apology but it is certainly a public acknowledgement:
"I"ve led an imperfect life and I"ve faltered and acted foolishly at times," she admits with a rueful smile. "It"s inevitable, but it"s much more constructive to focus on one"s successes and failures and not to berate yourself for being fallible and human."
On top of that, given that she’s setting herself up for heartbreak with a homo, does Danes deserve a second chance?
Oh and about that new relationship with Hugh Dancy... I saw a trailer the other day for the movie adaptation for The Jane Austen Book Club (clever, clever book – have you read it?). Hugh plays the hot piece of ass coveted by several women, clearly angling to become the next Orly Bloom, especially with those dashing pretty boy good looks. A year ago he was supposedly seen shoving his tongue down some dude’s throat, now he’s suddenly in love with Claire Danes.
Do you smell what I smell?
Here are Hugh and Claire the other day in NYC.
