Claire Danes Discusses Controversial Billy Crudup Scandal & Reveals If They're Still Friends

Claire Danes arrives at SiriusXM studios for an interview on the windy Monday (October 5) in New York City.

The 36-year-old Homeland star did an interview with Howard Stern, and he asked her about her very controversial relationship with Billy Crudup. Billy left his pregnant girlfriend of eight years Mary Louise Parker to be with Claire back in 2003.

“I was just in love with him,” Claire said of Billy, 47. “And needed to explore that and I was 24… I didn’t quite know what those consequences would be.”

“That was a scary thing,” Claire continued about the backlash she received. “That was really hard. I didn’t know how to not do that. It’s OK. I went through it. We’re friendly — we’re friends.”

Claire and Billy broke up in 2006. She is now married to Hugh Dancy and they have one son named Cyrus.

FYI: Claire is wearing an A.L.C. dress and Kurt Geiger pumps.
