Weeks after reportedly splitting with longtime boyfriend Bill Crudup, Claire Danes has found herself a new man, and she seems smitten. How do I know? Well, my friend -- and amazing coworker -- Kate sent me this celeb sighting this morning:
"Last night I had dinner a table over from Claire Danes and some dude at Mezzogiorno on Spring Street in SoHo. I think she was a little tipsy."
A few hours later, I found a picture of Claire and "some dude" (who happens to be Hugh Dancy, Claire's costar in Evening) strolling the streets of SoHo this afternoon. I sent it to Kate, and she confirmed Claire was with Hugh last night.
"Well, i don't know if she was (tipsy), but she was laughing a LOT, and when they were getting up to leave, he was helping her put on this turtleneck, and it got stuck on her head; so he was helping her pull it down," Kate told me later.
Claire's ex, Billy, supposedly broke up with the My-So-Called Life star when he found out she had been cheating on him with Hugh.
