It seems like Claire and her boyfriend Ben Lee
drifted slowly out of their long lasting relationship in the last
months. End of November several news sources have reported, that
Claire has left Ben for Billy Crudup (35, Almost Famous),
her costar in the upcoming period piece Stage Beauty.
Their friendship of 10 years apparently evolved while shooting the
movie in July. Billy Crudup on his part, broke up with his pregnant
longtime girlfriend Mary-Louise Parker (39, West Wing).
Luc Besson's company EuropaCorp will
produce and handle international sales on Jodie Foster's delayed
movie Flora Plum. Shooting is still scheduled for Spring
2004. The leading cast, Claire Danes, Ewan McGregor and Meryl Streep
hasn't changed. Maybe the location will move to Europe.
Steve Martin said about the recent
shooting of Shopgirl, that he can't believe Claire's emotional
intelligence at the age of 24. She's one of the women working in
film today, he's admiring.
