Claire Danes Is Engaged to Hugh Dancy

By February 6, 2009

Follow me on:

Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy are engaged, according to exclusive reports from People. Personally, I'm not convinced that this thing will last, let alone make it to the altar. For those of you with less then stellar memory banks, let me remind you of a few details regarding Miss Danes, 29, and her romantic history.

Back in 2003, after meeting on the set of Stage Beauty in London, Claire and Billy Crudup were so taken with each other that they ditched their significant others to be together. After seven years of dating, Claire, then 25, left singer Ben Lee. Billy, then 36, left longtime love Mary-Louise Parker.

Not only had Billy and Mary been together for eight years, but she was also seven months pregnant with their first child! As Jennifer Aniston would say, that's not cool. Three years later, Claire allegedly cheated on Billy with co-star Hugh Dancy.

Which brings us back to today. What makes Hugh, 33, think that things will be any different this time around? How can he be sure that she won't leave him for the next handsome co-star?
