Claire Danes Doesn’t Really Regret The Whole “Billy Crudup Leaving A Pregnant Mary-Louise Parker For Her” Thing
All the way back in 2003, Claire Danes got her star on the Home Wreckers Walk of Fame when Billy Crudup dumped a knocked-up Mary-Louise Parker to be with her. At the time, Mary-Louise Parker was 7 months pregnant with Billy Crudup’s baby, so the ESCANDALO alarm was rung several times. Billy Crudup got dragged because he was the cold-hearted gaping asshole who left his pregnant girlfriend of 8 years for another piece. Claire Danes got dragged because she was the hussy harlot who got with a taken dude. Claire was on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show this morning to promote Homeland, and Howard brought up the messiness that was her relationship with Billy. Claire sort of shrugged it off in a “shit happens” kind of way:
Howard: When you decided to date the guy you acted with in the play, Billy Crudup. Alright, he was a married guy and just had a kid, and you start dating him. Of course, he’s getting shit for it and all that. Is that such a scary thing because people are judging you?
Claire: Yeah, that was a scary thing. That was really hard.
Howard: When you go through something like that, are you thinking of your career? Are you like, “What am I doing?” Because people are so goddamn judgmental and all of this stuff?
Claire: Yeah, I don’t know. I didn’t know how to not do that. I was just in love with him and needed to explore that. And I was 24, didn’t quite know what those consequences might be.
Howard: Yeah, you never do know.
Claire: Yeah, you never know, but you know, it’s okay. I went through it. We’re friendly. We’re friends! I mean, yeah.
The hell kind of response is that? Claire Danes is so strong for getting through that. I don’t think Claire Danes needs to pull out one of her signature cries or anything, but it seems like she’s trying to act like she cares when she doesn’t really give a fuck. She also pulled those excuses out of her asshole. First of all, most 24-year-olds are way past that “I’m so sweet and naive and don’t know anything” phase and it sounds like she was dickmatized. When she said, “Needed to explore that,” I heard, “Needed to explore that dick!” So if Claire’s going to talk about it, she just needs to keep it all the way real by saying, “Listen, the dick was good and I wanted that dick all the time until I got bored with it and got me some new dick. The end. NEXT!”
Here’s Claire outside of SiriusXM’s studios this morning.
